Did everyone have an overall good Christmas? Gathered by the ones you love? Did you dance the night away? Or was that just me? 😉 How did Santa treat you? -Well Santa made sure I was surrounded by family, that’s all I can hope for every year, to be able to see another day, feel the love and appreciation gathered in one room.
Now that Christmas has come and gone, New Year’s is up next. I’ve been reflecting upon this past year and although I have many goals in mind for 2018, the general idea is that I want to stay positive and avoid, deflect and reject any and all negativity. At least try. This past year I’ve experienced so much bad energy, pettiness, envy and disrespect. You cannot progress in an environment that is polluted with negative energy, relentlessly bringing you down and holding you back. It’s time to leave it all behind because it’s the only way towards a bigger and better you.
In 2018, I plan to take a step back and learn to deal with things differently. Now remember: You don’t have to put anyone down to build yourself up. Doing better is about finding peace within yourself, not disrupting the peace in others. The work to better yourself is never over so why not start now? I encourage you all to do the same!
I love Christmas and to keep the spirit alive, I wore a playful ‘brick’ Betsey Johnson number. The color, the sequins, the silhouette was a total hit. In total monochrome form, I wore my MAC “diva” matte lip and kissed the night away. The nude platforms kept the look toned down below the knee.
I couldn’t help but smile with joy at every twirl of this sparkling number.
