Ladies, today, I decided to write the blog while I was sitting out on my patio. Now that it has a few flowers, it looks so much more inviting. And, since the rain has stopped for two whole days, I can enjoy the sunshine and work at the same time. I love being able to work from my computer; it is one of the things that drew me to blogging in the first place.
I used to watch a TV show called House Hunters, and when they would ask the people looking for the house what they did for a living, a lot of them would say, “I work from my computer. So, as long as I have internet or wifi, I can work from anywhere.” That intrigued me, even though I didn’t understand “how” they worked from the computer, I just knew that it was possible. When my sister encouraged me to start blogging, she mentioned the fact that you could work from your computer. Ding, ding, ding! The fact that I didn’t know how to blog, or even what a blogger was, didn’t phase me. I was only looking at the result, which was going to be…working from anywhere. I think a lot of people overthink things. I believe that they want to know all the details of how, or why, that something will work for them. In other words, they are looking for a guarantee, instead of a leap of faith. I think that I didn’t know that I couldn’t, so I did. If you have been thinking of doing something new, why not take the leap and go for it? Don’t find yourself wondering, “what if I had tried.” If you don’t succeed, at least you know the answer instead of always wondering. For those of you who read yesterday’s post, here is the planter that I was talking about. I loved the turquoise color, and that is why I was wanting to transform it from the candle container into a planter. I added the succulents to keep it short so that people can see over it when they are sitting at the table.
When I ordered this beautiful rustic gold sweater, I was thinking about wearing it in the fall of the year. In my mind, I couldn’t think of this as a summer top, but I thought I would order it and have it ready for fall. But, when it arrived, I couldn’t wait to find something to wear with it. I love the loosely woven material, and the crossover style of the top. I like how it is longer of the sides, so it appears to be hugging your hips. I like my hips to be hugged. Lol! The top is machine washable, and I am wearing a medium. I ordered this from the Loft Outlet, and here is the link to the top, and it is 50% off at checkout.
The Bennett earrings with the mustard twine ball match my sweater. I like the boho, easy-going style of these earrings, and I especially like the dangling feather. The feather kept sticking out at a 45-degree angle while we were taking my pictures, so I have it tucked in place to keep it from stick out. Lol!
I continued with the boho theme with the Coralee necklace. The necklace has several different colored beads on a tan, adjustable cord, and features a plaque pendant that says, “Girl Boss.” I wonder why people feel the need to say “girl” boss, but never feel the need to say “man” boss? Oh well, as long as we are the boss, who cares? Lol1
\The Kellyjean bracelet is the leather one with the Love plaque. It has a magnetic closure, so it is easy to put on and take off. The other two colorful bracelets are from the Randee set. That set comes with four bracelets, and I am wearing two of them for this look. They are on an elastic cord and are also easy on and off. Why do I mention when a bracelet in easy to put on and take off? Because, if you have arthritis in your hands, then the act of putting on a bracelet can be difficult. Plus, if you live along, you don’t have someone who can help with the latches that some bracelets have, it can be challenging to do the latch with just one hand.
The dark teal shorts are also a pair that I bought at the Loft Outlet. These shorts have a 6-inch inseam, and I usually look for that length of the 5-inch length. These are 100% cotton, machine washable, and they come in several different colors. They are also on sale for 50% off at checkout, so you can stock up on several different colors. I am wearing my usual size, which is 10.When I saw this photo, it immediately reminded me of the Proverbs 31:25 verse. “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and laughs without fear of the future.” I may not always laugh when I think of the future, but I know that I am never going to stop trying to grow or quit dreaming for bigger and better things to come. I am here to help any of you who would like to take a leap into unknown territory. I might not know the answer, but I don’t mind holding your hand. BTW, I am always looking for self-development books and podcasts, so let me know who inspires you.
