"I know this transformation is painful, but you're not falling apart; you're just falling into something different, with a new capacity to be beautiful."
-William C Hannan
I came across this quote and it literally stopped me in my tracks. As some of you know, I made a big change recently and took a chance on myself and my business. To say it was a big decision was certainly putting it mildly and it has been one of the toughest ones I have ever had to make peace with. If I'm totally honest with you, I'm still working through it because "what if?" can creep in and make you wonder. I know a lot about myself in ways I had never imagined at this point and some things I could have maybe avoided (ha!), but these lessons are providing me with the strength and tenacity to see through my dreams. Things may not have been served up in a package that I would have chosen, but I am trusting all roads will lead to my next chapter.
Change can be terrifying but if you allow yourself to be still, it can become a time of looking forward to the things you hope for. However, there are other times when change appears out of nowhere and can bring you to your knees. Sometimes you can justify the lesson and other times you can't quite understand why change appeared in your world. But as most things in life, you may not understand the reason, but you can find peace in knowing there is a definitive purpose. I have experienced more than one type of change in the past couple of months, but the dust is slowly beginning to settle and I'm excited to share with all of you the NEW wlbstyle.com!!! Here is a little bit of what my vision is for this brand, lifestyle and journey.
Simple & streamlined. I hope #WLBSTYLE will become a part of your style story - whether you need outfit inspiration, want to know what new looks I am loving or just want to hang out, I hope you stop by.
#OOTD. This collection will host all of my favorite looks of the day, along with some fun style series that I have in the works. This will also be an area where I will showcase "Style Stories" inspired by some of my favorite style icons and films.
#MUSTHAVES. These are pieces I know will make your style story a happy one!
My approach to style, plans and more will all live in this area of the site. I will be discussing products available here and from other stores to show you different ways of styling your looks. I will be continuing my "Weekly Style Tips" series as well, but instead of sticking with just fashion, I will be including style tips for all facets of life - food, health, life, home and anything else I feel is useful and worth sharing.
So here's to the beginning of this journey. Thank you for coming along with me. We will have so much fun, I promise!
