I’ve been to listening to podcasts for the last week or so and I think I’m officially hooked. I should have been listening to these things all along. Somewhere down the line I assumed that I disliked them because I read an audio book once and hateddd it! I felt like they were going too slow and I was wasting my time.
I love to learn and have always loved to learn. I think that’s why I enjoy these podcasts. They’re educational. They serve a purpose. I’m trying to be a better version of myself this year. Of course that’s easier said than done but I have learned a few tools to help me do so.
Im going to share one of them with you today. Here’s what you must do:
Always ask yourself “WHY?”
Life is rough, and tough, and people can be cruel. Situations can be less than ideal. It’s easy to become confused and wander away from the person you’re meant to be, the life you were meant to live. I’m really trying to understand everything at a deeper level, that includes myself. Why I think the way I do, why certain things make me nervous, why I worry, why I require perfection.
Lately I’ve been asking myself “why?” I’m putting this new tool of mine to use. Here’s an example.
A little over two years ago I created this blog based on a feeling. I’ve been trying to dig deeper so I can understand the why, which will help me set my sights on the direction I want to go. I spend a great deal of time working on this fashion blog. Taking pictures, planning content, creating blog posts, and talking to many of you on a daily basis. I love it.
Originally I wanted my own fashion blog because I thought I would be good at it. Why? Well, since I was little, people have always complimented me on my outfits. I’m often asked where I bought a particular piece of clothing. I love to share all the details (the name of the store, how it fits, whether it’s on sale or not). Why do I want to share? I want to share that information because I want you to be the most confident you can possibly be. No matter your size, no matter your job. Whether you’re told all the time that you’re beautiful or if you’re dying for a compliment. I want you to wake up, get dressed and walk out the door feeling like you can accomplish anything. Why does confidence matter? I believe that a person’s confidence, or lack there of, determines many of the decisions they make on a daily basis. Your confidence also alters your attitude. Why do daily decisions matter? They matter because they all add up to create the current season that you’re in. Your current situation. The life you’re living now.
Am I confident every hour of every day? Of course not. I don’t think that’s possible. There are times when I don’t feel that great about myself. There are moments of weakness and self doubt. One thing that can change my attitude is an outfit. A killer dress, or a nice pair of shoes. A blazer that feels like a shield. How you present yourself to the world each day matters. It’s my mission, that this fashion blog will inspire and guide you so you can put your best foot forward, feeling confident and capable. That’s why this blog exists. That’s why I love spending my time and energy creating SometimeSaturday. That’s why I do what I do.
