Spring Clean Your Lifestyle

Hello Spring

Spring is here. And no matter where you live. it represents the beginning of change. The snow has melted, the air is warm, and flowers are starting to bloom. It only make sense that we begin something new at this time of the year as well.

So what does that mean for you and me? It means it’s time to spruce up our lifestyles. Here are a few ideas for a “Lifestyle Spring Cleaning”

Change up your wardrobe. Throw out, sell, or donate anything you haven’t worn in over two years. And then treat yourself to some new items for the months to come.

Sign up for a class. Learning something new is a great way to expand your mind and consider different perspectives. Try an art class or a fun dance class in your area.

Travel. On my birthday this year, I promised myself that I’d travel more often. And I plan to keep that promise especially now that the weather is warmer.. Nothing sparks your creative side like the detailed artistry of the world around us. Experiencing different cultures, art, and music will totlly help foster in a new vibe this spring.

Focus on a healthier way of thinking. Okay, so maybe last year wasn’t so great for you. Maybe the beginning of this year was a drag. Or maybe you’re still stuck on some mistake you made years ago or some “flaw” you think people see when they look at you. It’s time to let that shit go. This is your life, OWN IT.

I know that the only way to experience life to its maximum potential is to do it from a clear, positive state of mind. Cleaning out all of the things ,both physically and mentally, that are crowding your space will elevate your mood and help you live in the moment.

Happy Spring!

When I Grow Up

Aging has always been a frightening topic amongst most women. For some reason many of us view getting older as a sad, at times overwhelming thing when in reality it┬árepresents the gift of time… Time to master the art of living. That’s why seeing images in the media of gorgeous mature women is such a fantastic thing. It celebrates womem who have aged both proudly and gracefully. Here are a few of the women I can only hope to look as great as when I grow up:

Cheers to these fabulous women and others like them for promoting a positive image of aging for the next generations.
