So it is Saturday and my usual routine is to throw on what ever clothes are comfortable and quick, clean house and then head off to the grocery store. I don’t want to look too tacky so, I make sure that my hair is brushed and put on a little makeup; but hey, “it’s just the grocery store so why should a girl feel the pressure to look nice?”…. are my usual thoughts. However, today I am going to do things a little different.
We usually act and feel according to the way we are dressed. And even though I would still be wearing casual clothes, adding a few accessories would definitely help with my new motto of living…..”Live Vibrant, Inspired & Elegant.
You see I just spent a few weeks with my precious mom, and this woman is the pure example of elegant. She has this golden touch to make everything around her glisten and glow. So I guess you could say I have been inspired. If I were to know a Heavenly Mother, she is who my mother radiates.
Is anyone else noticing how the body begins to go in the opposite direction from how it use to be once you’ve had several babies and you’ve moved passed 45? This could really be depressing! But, I don’t live my life in that frequency…. So ladies, it’s time to make a real positive change. Now, I am not going for knock-down gorgeous….although, it wouldn’t be bad; I’m just going for a healthy, fit and trim and a new appreciation for this gift of a body.
Off to the closet I go….I tried a few belts and settled on this one. I am amazed at how more vibrant you feel with just a casual belt, a long dangle necklace, and a few spritz of perfume. I started this project just for me…to live and feel more alive. But, it wasn’t until my 12 year old daughter kept asking me, “mom, where are we going?” several times, even after I told her the grocery store. “Just the grocery store?“, was her reply. “You look so nice.” It was at that moment that I realized that I was doing more than living vibrant today, I was, like my mother, inspiring my daughter.
What will you do differently today that will make your life more Vibrant, Inspired, and Elegant?
