Get into the Groove


Oh hello darling and welcome to a brand new post in a brand new decade. I am still settling into the new year, and all the swirling feelings that this time of year brings. However, there is a clear message that I want to bring you.

Just because the year is new, does not for one minute mean you need to search for a new version of yourself. There is no need to overhaul your existence just because the number has changed on the calendar. I hate the collective pressure of the question “so what are your New Year resolutions?”.

Let’s be clear here Carol, no I am not giving up caffeine, cheese or white wine. I don’t feel the need to put myself through bootcamp, or chain myself to writing two pages in a journal each and every morning. I am happy building upon the legacy of 2019.

Pause.

Yes I just said that. I am happy building upon the legacy of 2019. For all the ups and downs of the year, there were lots of positive things that happened, and I am very much excited to roll with that momentum. Assess what worked well, and continue on that path. I am still learning and adjusting to my day to day life, as we all are, so who am I to change everything that I do right now, because it is January?

You can choose to make as many adjustments as you wish in your life, I am not here to tell you that you cannot initiate fresh starts. However, I am here to remind you that the perceived pressure of the whole “New Year, New Me” rhetoric is toxic. Take your time, set your own pace, remember you are the boss of you.

I am just happy getting into the groove of 2020, and happy setting my own goals inline with my vision of success, and I urge you to do the same! You should not feel like you have to compete with anyone, be better than anyone, or have to be constantly improving yourself. It is okay to be happy with where you are right now and carrying on with that.

On another quick note, let’s break down the look I am bringing you today. I am living my 80s fantasy in this houndstooth tailored dream. I bought this blazer because it ties in very nicely firstly to my own wardrobe, which is very important when buying statement pieces. Secondly because just look at it. Finally the heavy 80s vibe is a trend that seems to be having longevity in fashion currently, and I wanted in with this blazer. It gives me Sigourney Weaver in Working Girl vibes, which is really all I want for my life!

So there you have it my darlings, set your own goals, dress like Sigourney Weaver, and be happy. I will be doing this all 2020!! See you next week darlings!
