The lead up to the new year can always be more stressful than celebrational due to the annual norm of resolution making. In society today, there's an immense pressure to make some sort of change solely because of January 1st making its way around again. Whether it's losing weight, gaining weight, being more productive, stressing less; the list goes on and on. The heavy focus on these resolutions all too often mask the true celebration of the holiday and replace it with a belief along the lines of "new year, new me."
Throughout the years, I've come to the realization that new year's should be a time to reflect on the victories, the failures, the memories, the heartbreaks and value them no matter what. These are the things that allow us to grow and are experiences that make us who we are. It's a time to celebrate just that - who you are and everything you've experienced in the last year. To celebrate where you are right now.
Take this quote by I Am Her Tribe with you into the new year. It's everything I wish to say and more!
So welcome the new year with confidence and remember one of the greatest things that I've personally come to value this year and what Clothe In Confidence is all about - self-love; I know it will be amazing.
Also, a big thank-you to everyone who has followed Clothe In Confidence thus far. This was a huge year and couldn't be more thankful for the support. Best wishes for 2016!
Happy new year from Clothe In Confidence!
