Reach for Those Stars in Your Sky High Boots

January 10, 2018


Hey there! I’ve spent the last couple days prepping my littles for their return back to school. We had a lovely holiday break, but this mama is ready to get back into routine. The new year buzz is still ringing over here and I’m brainstorming ways to reach for those stars I aspire to achieve. And with the help of some sky high boots things are looking up. πŸ˜‰

A lot of last year was spent learning the fundamentals of blogging. I shared more on that HERE and HERE. This year a focus I am excited (and eager) to explore are the more creative angles blogging has to offer. Primarily as an individual my aspirations are creative driven. So I am feeling a bit relieved to reach a point where I now have a foundation to build from creatively. Of course there is still and always will be plenty to learn. But at least I can see past the iPhone now and begin to move forward to more exciting things.

Have you ever pieced together an outfit that felt very you and just made you feel good and comfortable in your own skin? This was one of those outfits for me. I had a shoot coming up and had no clue what I was going to wear. Nor did I have any new pieces to showcase. So I quickly put something together from items I’ve had for years. My little outfit creation might not be anything exciting for some, but I was quite satisfied. It’s the little things right?

I share that little behind the scene story not to toot my own horn. But simply to point out that as individuals we often overlook that we already have what it takes to create. Not necessarily an outfit so to speak, but in whatever areas that excite us. With the help of a solid base and the proper fuel to lift and inspire us, the sky is our only limit.

It is so important for the soul to allow our own God given creativity to flow. I say let’s put on our “sky high boots” that lift us up and reach for those stars in our own unique and creative style. Shall we?

Remember – whatever lifts us up is only productive and fruitful when planted and built from a solid foundation. xo

Do you enjoy being creative? What is your creative outlet? What inspires that outlet?Β

    Those boots give such a long line to legs – very nice. But it’s a windy day where I am and I’m thinking you’d need a “skirt alert” for that sassy one. Here’s to gentle breezes where ever you wear it! 😁

      lol – yes heavy winds would be tricky in this one. πŸ™‚
