Re-Defining Your Image

by Lakeysha-Marie

The beginning of a new year is always exciting! The hustle and bustle of “out with the old” and “in with the new” sparks inspiration for some of the most fantastic style transformations. However in the midst of these wardrobe overhauls, I often find that one key element is often missing from clothing selection–a woman’s goals and dreams.

Our appearance is an expression of who we are and gives the viewer insight into our thoughts, life style and goals. So it comes as no surprise that a confident personal image is based on incorporating these elements within our look. Fortunately, plugging this piece into the style puzzle is not as tricky as it seems, and is something that many of us do without ever realizing it.

Here’s an example: When deciding what to wear for a job interview, our first instinct is to read the job description. In doing so we ensure our personal image reflects the goal we want to achieve (i.e. getting hired).

Dressing for an interview, and dressing for life are no different. By styling ourselves according to our dreams, we are in essence packing our suitcase for the journey and laying the foundation for continuous motivation.

Take a moment to ask yourself "Is my appearance a reflection of who I am, and where I want to go in life?" If your response is undefined, you will readily find the answer to this question in your wardrobe. Go to your closet and lay out your garments in plain view, and ask yourself again 'Do these clothes reflect who I truly am, and where I plan to go life?"

Separate the clothes into two piles. One pile for “Yes', and the second pile for “No'. Return the “Yes' pile to your closet, as it will serve as a foundation for your new wardrobe. Take a look at the “No' pile. Why did you buy these items? Was it on sale? A trend of the moment? Identifying why you bought these items will help you to avoid the same mistakes on future shopping trips.

Bag up the “No' piles and drop it off at your local charity shop. Not only are you freeing up room in your own life for positive changes, you are also benefiting the life of another woman as well!

U.S. President Barack Obama launched his widely expected new job plan Thursday night at a joint session of the Congress to stimulate recovery and strengthen the country's struggling employment situation."Tonight we meet at an urgent time for our country," Obama said to the legislators. "We continue to face an economic crisis that has left millions of our neighbors jobless, and a political crisis that has made things worse."The president called on the Congress to stop "political circus" and pass the job plan immediately.
