Cheesy caption, but I can tell you this…one thing that came to me while I was contemplating what happened to me in 2017 and how I was going to improve that for 2018, was how I really can affect what happens to me primarily by how I react to it.
Have you ever noticed that when things are going well, EVERYTHING seems to work so much better, there’s kind of a flow and we seem to attract more and more great things into our lives. It seems almost logical that we would want to continue that kind of attraction…but because we are human, it is not always sustainable to be positive all the time.
Knowing that my behavior and attitude can very often determine my results, I made a choice for this year (at least most of it), that I will “sparkle” and be a positive force. My family tells me all the time that when I am down, angry or just sad, it seems to affect the whole mood in our home. That’s a lot of pressure, and not something I want put on me…but it’s also quite an amazing ability to know that I can help my family feel more happy, strong and positive!
In keeping with the theme of this post, the sparkly/glitter pants I am wearing are some I bought just before Christmas from H&M and they are really fun (and even better, they’re on sale). Sparkles are not just for the holidays or special occasions, just like sequins, I think they work whenever you really want them to! I added a white blouse with a gathered waist (similar one shown below), a long black cardigan and some sock booties. I have also recently fallen in love with some Stila liquid eyeshadow colors that I am wearing in this post. If you haven’t tried liquid eyeshadow, you definitely should give it a try (I’m definitely sold!)
A great, simple, sparkly outfit – just in time to set you up to have a sparkly 2018 too!
