Change. I love it and I hate it. I know it’s inevitable and in many cases I am grateful and crave it. In others, I wish those winds would just blow on past me. I need a constant reminder to embrace it and accept it regardless of what it may bring my way.
Regarding fitness, I know how easy it can be to fall into a routine and get comfortable. Our bodies like that. What our bodies dislike is when we change the game on them. Just yesterday morning, in a cardio and strength interval class, our instructor warned us of how our bodies can become (in a sense) stale when we fail to shock our system every once in a while. When it comes to my children, I often find myself wishing I could just freeze them where they are. As difficult as toddlerhood can be, the things they do and say are so stinkin’ cute that I want to bottle it all up. But at the same time I see friends and family with older children and love the relationships they can have with their ‘adult’ children. And of course there’s the promise of grandchildren who we will one day spoil the heck out of.
On the other hand, there’s a side of change that I jump all over. This is the side that drives my husband partly crazy. My tastes in fashion, decor, food etc. are always evolving causing me to adjust and tweak our home and my wardrobe in a nonstop cycle. There are the obvious fashion trends that come and go, but there are also design trends, that may stay around a bit longer, but eventually fade into something new as well. I would not say I have modern taste when it comes to interiors, but over the years there are some modern pieces that I am becoming drawn to. I embrace this sense of change and will see where it takes me. I don’t become attached to things because they are just that, things. So as new ‘things’ come into our home, old ‘things’ will simultaneously be going out.
This leads me to my new site. What do you think? Don’t ever get too comfortable with this site because I promise it will always be evolving along with my blogging, my tastes and preferences. I happen to have a super savvy designer for a husband, so when he has the time I hire him out :) Take a minute to get comfortable, navigate around and get connected. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I do!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for Part 3 of Making Color Work for You. I’m hoping this post answers a lot of your questions and gives you a good sense of what colors you should be selecting to look your best!
