When I saw that the next 30 for 30 was upcoming up, it seemed like the perfect motivation for resurrect my failing blog. What better way to get strict with posting, then to start a challenge that requires daily posts?
And then I couldn’t get the idea out of my head.
I found more reasons than doubts (my clothes aren’t exciting enough, I’ve terrible at accessorizing, will I even have time to take pictures each day, I don’t think I take good photos) so here I am.
The biggest reasons are financial ones. Husband and I have a big upcoming adventure (more later on this) that requires strict budgeting and while I only shop at low cost chain stores and on sale, and for a girl, not all that often, I still shop more than I really need to. Solution? Sign up for a challenge that involves no shopping and watch the bank balance grow.
The second reasons would be spiritual ones; to encourage myself that I have more worth than just face value and to find meaning in He who has Ultimate Meaning. I like clothes, I like looking pretty for husband but to me, true beauty comes from a person of grace, love and compassion. (I’m a work in progress).
Thirdly, ethical reasons. I’m trying to tread more lightly on the earth, consume less, reuse more and really think about how I use my money.
Lastly, creative reasons. I’m the queen of the statement “I have nothing to wear.” Which is a big fat lie. I have plenty to wear. I just don’t know how to wear it.
I put on the same outfits every day and have no idea how to mix and match. I have outfit envy when I see ladies looking AMAZING on their blogs. No more.
