How To Find Your Strength

You were wild once, don’t let them tame you.  It’s funny the way fashion can make you feel. And this look made me feel powerful. The rich velvet navy blue, the statement necklace and slingback flats/ metallic booties gave this look such attitude and confidence.

All I Ever Wanted Was Everything – Twenty seven

Hello, twenty-seven… If I wrote this post when I planned to (last weekend) it would have been exceptionally different. Crazy what a day makes, huh? Did I keep my promises to myself and others?  How much did I grow personally and professionally?  Is this where I want to be? Is this where I thought I’d be?  Have I challenged myself enough?
