Creating New Habits – I’m Back And Better Than Ever

Wow, what a week off will do for you.

Since I started my blog over three years ago I’ve been strict with posting on Instagram and my site. Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s [like clockwork] have mostly been my normal post dates until recently. Aiming to change it up a bit I’ve gone off this schedule and have been trying to listen to you, my readers, more. But still, I rarely miss a week.

Giving out advice on fashion and life can sometimes put you into interesting situations. As much as I wanted to go, go, go last week, I decided not to. Normally during any time off from my full-time job I work on my brand. But seeing as I’m not the best at relaxing (post here) and I just wrote a post on disconnecting (here) I felt I really needed to take a step back. And take my own advice, you know? I truly believe that hustle gets you to great places but we all need rest. If you’re burnt out, there’s no way you’re doing your best work.

I decided that if I’m going to give any kind of advice, I must always be willing to take it too.  So, on my week off I was probably the laxest I’ve ever been. Obviously, there were things I had to do, especially because fashion week is coming up. So I did what I needed to and relaxed as much as I could.

Why am I creating new habits? The answer is simple. After reflecting on my experiences over my week of rest, I found there were definitely a few things I could do better. As of Monday, I’ve decided to push myself to stick to these new habits.

Here are the three I choose:

  1. Go get a piece of the pie. I’m a big believer that you can have anything you put your mind to. You know the whole ask, believe, receive thing? Well, that. If you don’t know what I’m talking about read The Secret. So, I’ve decided that I really need to push hard and go out there and get what I want. We can all have a piece of the pie. [More on this to come]
  2. Believe what you say. Going along with my first new habit, I have to have more confidence in what I believe in. I talk a big talk but do I really believe what I say? Of course, I do, but sometimes my logical thinking gets in the way and deters me. For example, do I really think I could do my blog full-time? Of course, I do. But logically I start thinking about how I would keep my brand organic if I had to accept collaborations for money, creating an LLC, succeeding, truly differentiating myself in a flooded market… Catch my drift?
  3. Be more easy-going. I love having a schedule and a plan. I’m NOT a happy camper when my plans change. I’m definitely going to work on going with the flow.

It’s important to know what you’re good at and know what you need work on. This is why taking time to relax can actually help you get some clarity. Even though you may feel like you’re being useless [I know I do] a break is productive.

    Loving you blog! I can’t believe you don’t do this full time because it’s so professional. I’ve been poking around trying to get ideas lol. Any tips on covering NYFW? I’d like to try it this year?

    You have a great blog. You’re right about taking a break once in awhile. I sincerely believe that I can have a good blog too, but as you mentioned, sometimes i wonder how it’s possible to achieve that. I’m going to try and read The Secret. Thanks
