The other day I was doing some online shopping looking for a new pair of black ballet flats for work. I gave up wearing heels years ago when I switched to a job that doesn’t require that I wear a suit every day. Now I just try to make sure I find a pair of flats that look work appropriate and that I can wear all day with minimal discomfort.

 

I was browsing the reviews on a site for a pair of shoes that caught my eye and the first review I saw said something along the lines of “These shoes were so cute online and they were really comfortable to wear, but they made my feet look fat when I put them on so I had to return them.” All I could think was “REALLY?!

A Fresh Start

A Fresh Start

Am I the only one that needs a fresh start from time to time? Lately I’ve felt lost and as if I’m in a bit of a limbo between life stages. I blame a lot of it on turning thirty this year.

 

I think it’s pretty common to outgrow some of our interests as we get older, and for the last six months I’ve found that I’ve lost interest in many of the things that I really used to enjoy. I’ve blogged before, but I feel like I’ve outgrown that space.I’m hoping a new year, a new space, and a fresh start will help me to find inspiration, motivation, and direction.

 

Let’s see how this goes. I hope you’ll join me on this new chapter.

 

Happy New Year!
