“The beauty of life is in the small details not in big events!”
We all have our own unique way of handling things in life, we do things differently, we place varying degrees of importance on some things over others, and as a result, we are all unique individuals.
Paying attention to the small things can be hard when we have goals, ambitions and life’s distractions – who knows what I’m talking about (especially if you have kids!~) . So how do we stay focused and remember the small things?
The small details in our lives may not seem significant until we start adding them up – then the accumulation is actually HUGE!
This method can be equally true when putting together an outfit – all the combined detail of an outfit are what make the outfit great.
I always try and make sure that I have at least one conversation starter, or one thing that may seem like a small detail but it is significant to me. I typically choose shoes, but there are lots of other ways to do it as well…
In this outfit I am wearing there are a couple of things – the ribbon detail on the pants definitely got me some attention, the boots (especially for those of you that love Dr Marten’s either more recently or from the good old days) and the nail polish. A detail like your nails is something that can definitely be a small detail that can make you feel sassy and fabulous.
Whether you’re someone that likes to be noticed or not, ask yourself this question “Do I like to feel good about myself” – if you answer yes, and I am guessing that most people will answer “yes”. The next step is to figure out what it is that makes you feel good. Are you a girl that absolutely loves makeup? Do you enjoy the process of making yourself up and putting on some fabulous lipstick? Do you find your hair to be your favorite feature? Does it make you feel good to know that you are working out regularly? Do you like to get your finger or toenails done regularly? Do you like wearing a pair of shoes that is unique? Are you a bargain shopper that loves the thrill of finding a deal so that you can wear something knowing that it didn’t cost you a fortune?
Whatever it is that makes you feel good, that is something you should make sure you nurture. Paying attention to all details in your life and appreciating those details is something that will make you feel great.
I have found that while it’s important for me to think “big picture” I definitely realize the steps that it takes me to get to my goals, and I appreciate and every single one of those steps. And while I’m at it – I think it’s important (at least for me) to feel good as I am on the road to my goals…
