Sometimes life throws you curve balls when you least expect them. The universe turns itself upside down and you find yourself holding on for dear life. I am currently in the midst of change and I’ve decided to grant myself the opportunity to just allow it to happen.
I’ve always been a very driven person, especially with my business. I strive for perfection every day. However, my personal life was far from perfect. When things were rocky in my marriage and subsequent divorce, I went headfirst into my work. I poured all my emotions into running a successful business because I had no control over the other things in my life. Chic Galleria Publications, LLC has been my life for over 15 years. I love what I do.
I’m not going to lie. Things have not been so great with me. So, with all the complete crap that has happened in my life recently, I decided it was time to share and let it go.
I built a business only to have it taken away from me. I spent Christmas Day in the ER. I experienced a break-up. I lost my home. I fell into clinical depression. I left my teaching career in the dust. I gained a ton of weight. I woke up paralyzed on one side due to a herniated disc in my neck. I lost one of my best friends. I let myself go completely. I had given up on me. I lost my will to live.
When I finally saw my world completely cave in, I knew it was time to do something about it. It was time to “grab a root and growl” as my dad would say. I had to get out of my self-imposed pity party. I had to stop blaming others for my failure to grow as a person. I HAD to make some changes! I have a fashion and beauty blog for crying out loud!
I plan to write about all the shit that went down with full transparency in the hope that maybe my experiences will help someone else. It will also be a healing process for me.
As far as Style by Beth, I have jumped into adding color to my capsule wardrobe. I’m excited to share this journey with you and plan to be writing a lot more posts on the subject.
So dear readers, please know how much I love and appreciate all of you. I hope that I have been able to help you with your capsule wardrobe journey and that you’ve been able to feel the stress release I experience from having a minimalist wardrobe.
I’m still here and it’s time to get this blog (and me) back up and running!
