Day 1

I’ve never been one to cry and complain about my feelings on the internet, or in person for that matter. But so far this week has been kinda crappy…I’ll just leave it at that. I’ve had trouble having the motivation to even get dressed. Then last night I read a blog post by Keiko Lynn that really struck a chord with me. I read her blog a lot. I found her through a t-shirt surgery community I’m a member of on livejournal. Keiko is an amazing seamstress and is just so adorable! She blogs about fashion, her online clothing store, and her everyday life (which always consists of adorable outfits!) She wrote this post late last night and I was inspired by it to not only get dressed each day, but to take a photo of my outfit…I might even be motivated enough to put on shoes! I’ll be posting some of the more interesting outfits on here for fun and to prove that I am sticking with this.

So here is day one…

















Jeans- Arizona Brand from JC Penny $2.17 on sale with coupon
Shirt- Wal-Mart $3
Vest- Free (During the last week there is a free box in the dorms that you can put things you don't want anymore or don't have room to take how. There will be everything in it from lamps and rice cookers to shoes and shirts. Anyone if free to take what they want and the rest goes to the thrift store)
Shoes- TOMS Shoes got them for like $24 on clearance...I don't remember the website though...

I'm glad to hear that you have found some inspiration to get you up and going each day. Those depressing days can get pretty bad...I get them sometimes too,and I have to force myself up out of bed. As long as you can keep your eye on the project, and not dwell on the gloomy you should be just fine :) I'll keep you in my thoughts.

I read a good post the other day on facebook. Maybe it will help:
Our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions...not on our circumstances. We carry the seed of one or the other with us in our minds wherever we go.
I printed it and put it near my desk. I read it all the time. I can choose to be miserable because my husband is thousands of miles away or I can chose to be happy I have his kids to look at and remind me of him. On the other hand, I can choose to look at my kids and be frustrated and miserable that they don't listen to me or I can choose to look ahead at the long weekend my mother-in-law will have them and I will be with my friends in Shreveport!

That's a great way to look at things! Thank you Kim for that note.
