There’s something about wearing a cute outfit to work that makes me feel like a total #bossbabe.
I’m lucky, and thankful, to work in an office where it is acceptable to wear jeans and a t-shirt to work every day. Comfort is essential to gettin’ work done around here. Gone are my days of editor pants and button ups, pencil skirts and high heels. Hallelujah! But the fashionista side of me kind of misses that. A least a little part of it. So, I try to mix business professional with business casual, like with this look. I’m not going to lie, it felt really good to whip out these flares again. I’m so glad they’re coming back in style! I just love the dark denim with the wide cuff at the bottom. Add a dash of business professional with a classic button up, but dress it down with a long, sleeveless cardigan. You’ll be on your way to being an adorable #bossbabe.
But hey, we all know that it takes a lot more than looking adorable to accomplish big things.
Have you ever had a big project or goal that you wanted to reach, paint this grand vision of how it should turn out in your mind, only to be totally disappointed with the outcome?
I can’t tell you how many times this has happened to me. With big things, and small.
It wasn’t until just recently I realized perhaps why some of my big dreams weren’t coming together as I’d hoped.
“But seek first the Kingdom of God and he will give you everything you need.” – Matthew 6:33
While presenting your requests to God is one thing, seeking His Kingdom, His will, His face FIRST is another. Often times I find myself praying in the middle that something turns out ok, or begging Him at the end that it will come together. But it’s what you do in the beginning that sets the tone for how the rest will go. I assume this is why New Years resolutions became such a big deal.
Two weeks into the New Year and I’ve completed my list of ambitions for this year. Some personal, some professional and some relational. I like to take my time, talk to my husband and pray about these things. I want to make sure I am setting reasonable, yet courageous goals that I can follow through with.
While the Bible says God perfectly orchestrates your steps and knows the plans He has for you, I think it is so important to make these resolutions. But even more important to hand them over to The Lord first.
My friends, I want to encourage you to join me in placing your goals in God’s hands first. Not second, in the middle or at the end. First. God’s blessings will be far greater than we can ever imagine if we do.
Have a great week loves!
