The Word

everyday is another chance to wake up and be whoever you want to be

Sometimes when I’ve been in a funk, I find that waking up one day, putting on a great outfit, and actually blowing out my hair for once can make all the difference in the world. In other words, the littlest changes can shake things up and alter your whole outlook. Just in case your week didn’t start off on the right foot, here’s something to remind you that today is a whole new ball game. Happy Tuesday!

      I do that all the time too (or in its grungy cousin, the t shirt and jeans look). It’s comfy and I like it, but some days, it still amazes me what actually “getting dressed” can do for my energy levels!

  10. Lovely post, this quote is perfect timing. Lately I’ve been going to bed thinking about what I had wanted my day to be and get in a positive space to wake up and treat the day anew.

    I used this photo on my blog today! Don’t you just love DTS? They’ve had some really great collections.
    And also, great reminder! I often dress up a little more than I probably should, but it’s a bright spot in a cubicle-filled life. :)

  13. I think this quote is something that everybody(every girl mostly) should remind themselves EVERY DAY! Because we underestimate ourselves too much too often!
    Great quote!!!

  14. I totally agree! Sometimes it just takes a little primping and I start to feel good about myself, and in turn spread the good vibes all around. Thanks for sharing this quote! Very empowering!
