Happy New Year! I love the feeling of a fresh start, where hope springs eternal! Ideas of revamping your life abound! Yet, the reality of implementing them can be elusive. That got me thinking. The things I have had success with in my life are those that I gave myself to completely. I thought that this year I will attempt to serve as your Life Style Coach! I want to walk you through the steps of organizing and re-designing your life, well, the parts that you would like to make more organized and more stylish that is. With a coach at your side I believe that you can reach those stylish and organized goals that you have for yourself. And I want you to start with baby-steps.
The best place to start is in your closet. I want you to have an “ahhhhhh” feeling when you open your closet doors. Many of you dread each morning because you know you have a closet full of clothes yet you have nothing to wear! Your closet should be a blessing to you! I want you to open your closet and be at peace because you are able to easily find a flattering, well fitting outfit that you can accessorize with ease!
So, if you are ready, I would like to give you your first assignment.
This week, take a few minutes and remove 1-10 items from your closet that you no longer enjoy. There is no peace or joy when your closet is too full or it contains items that no longer serve you well. I want you to let go and get rid of 1 to 10 items of your choice. I suggest you use ask yourself “does this item bring me joy?” (it could be a shirt, a pair of shoes, an old sweater, a necklace you never wear, etc). If the answer is “no” then I am asking you to let it go. Consider giving it to a friend, a church or charity that could use the item(s). It feels amazing to know that the next time you go into your closet it will be less crowded, and that you will have blessed someone in the mean time.
You have one week! Please post your results! I will continue to walk with you and challenge you in different ways this year, all with the goal of a more stylish and organized life! Remember, baby-steps! We have an entire year to reach your goals! A new, more beautifully dressed, less stressed you awaits! -Meredith
