It was also a day for me to try on something new — a new dress.
As I surveyed my closet this morning, and stared down the clothes I have worn over and over again for the past year, I yearned to wear something new.
And then I saw the new dress.
I haven’t had a new dress in my possession for over a year now. This new dress came to me in the form of a Christmas present (thanks Jill!).
Just slipping into this sunny number made me feel like a new person, taking a step into a new year. In a very subtle way, it made me feel ready for new dreams too.
Because clothes are powerful.
It’s no secret that I love clothes. I love how they make me feel, how they change my attitude and how they define my day.
But, dreams are more powerful.
And I love them even more — for how they make me feel, how they change my attitude and how they define not just my day, but the entire year ahead.
If there is anything I learned from last year, it is the importance of investing in myself, in my future and in my dreams (instead of my wardrobe!).
How are you investing in your dreams?
Here’s to your dreams, goals, plans and purposeful living as we take on this new year.
