I met with a financial planner yesterday to plan for my future. It was a little daunting as the finances are not where I’d like them to be (hence part-time job needed), but I also regained a bit of my confidence in taking an active role in my finances and in my life plan.
With confidence intact, I walked the shops afterwards, feeling as if the frumpy me, who was bedraggled after the divorce, needed a little pick me up. Window shopping is always enjoyable for me. So when I entered a clothing store just to look around, I wasn’t expecting to find a bonanza – on sale! A great shopping experience was in store for me as a retail assistant named Jackie took me under her wing and dressed me. I left feeling confident again, something I hadn’t felt in years.
Did I lose weight? Nope. Did I spend a ton of money? Nope! I just found a great pair of jeans that fit perfectly which as we all know is like a gift from the Universe! Because I don’t know about you, but a good pair of jeans that makes you feel great, fits perfectly and is flattering, is hard to find!
I wanted to remember this moment, so I’m blogging today. I feel like my heart, mind and soul have cracked open to let in the light, the hope and the future. I think I’ll put on my magic jeans today again. Fall is in the air these days which I am enjoying!
Cheers to a bright future for all of us!
