A girlfriend of mine (ahem, Cehors) recently showed me a song by Wale called The Matrimony… it’s a good song but what stuck with me was Jerry Seinfeld’s introduction (yes, Jerry!) He was talking about marriage and change and if you can be ready for it:
“No, it’s like any growth. You can’t be ready for it because it’s growth. It’s going to be new. You’re going to have a new life. You’re going to be a new person.”

It kind of hit me (and maybe you’re reading this like, duh Jill) that you seriously can’t be ready for change… it just happens. And for that to even begin, you have to feel uncomfortable and step outside your comfort zone. Otherwise you’re just living your standard, normal life.

Anyway, I wanted to share that with you. I’ve mentioned before that I tend to resist stepping out of my comfort zone, but I’m really trying to push myself more these days.

Here’s to starting my week out of my comfort zone… Happy Monday kids!

    Couple things:

    I LOVED your post on social media and I too was inspired by O’Neill’s video and made my own little dedication via Snapchat (notanothrblonde) about how inspired I was, looking like crap wearing no make-up or bra for that matter but I owned it.

    I also love how insightful and helpful ALL your posts are, your blog has been a huge influence on my own blog, as I naturally like to help people, (I studied to be a teacher), I am inspired by all your posts that actually help people dress with tips and how-to’s and I have shaped my blog that way as well.

    I also love how you engage with your readers, (HUGE fan of that), it’s so important to spark a conversation like this, you know? Something that connects us, because isn’t that what it’s all about anyway? Connection, growth, meaning?

    Keep doing you girl, much love.
