You are unique. There's no one else like you--period. Acknowledge and embrace the special qualities that make you you. Skip making comparisons and spinning your wheels in that direction.
It's much easier to look outside of ourselves and feel like we are insufficient than it is to be self-referential and direct our attention to whether we are measuring up to our own standards or meeting our full potential.
Realizing, valuing and embracing our uniqueness enables us to be our best, to let our brightest light shine and to offer our special talents and gifts to fulfill our purpose in the larger meaning of life.
How to tie this into the subject of fashion accessories? It's not a big leap. Discover more about who you are by noticing what you are wearing. If what you are choosing isn't expressing the true you, reconsider. Do you need a splash of color to brighten your radiant self? Wanna tone it down a bit to pull off your career look? Is that necessary?
When I was at IBM I was all about color, texture and touches of femininity. Blue suits were not me, though I had one. I wasn't always comfortable in either style-- pushing the edges or keeping inside the unwritten dress-code lines. I believe my expression of style and self added to my success rather than subtracted from it. Today my true self is full of surprises. I am wearing ripped jeans as I type. I run around in yoga leggings as often as I find myself in fashion mode. I love the variety. I feel blessed to have the choice. I know it's important to be attentive to where I wear what.
The accessories I offer to you my friends and new customers are carefully chosen in consideration of that diversity of personality within and that spectrum of styles and roles we find ourselves in over the course of one short day.
Effortless. Affordable. Irresistible.
...that's what I'm looking for--- for the unique me and the incomparable you! Aren't we beautiful!?
Express. Embrace. Rejoice.
Today pledge to not zap energy with comparisons. My daughter Grace Kelly has a poster hanging over her bed that sums it up: "Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have." Amen sister!
