Change and Chains

Friday, August 07, 2015

Last week my family and I just just upped and moved after living in the same place for 26 years. 

I'm not going to lie, this was a long time coming. As an intuitive person and one that tries to live by the "life begins outside your comfort zone" mantra, this move was a no brainer. And trust me, we tried really hard not to use too much of our brains. Because if we started thinking too much, all the what-ifs and fears would start to creep in.

We just knew it was the right move and we dove in head first.

Change is good, but it's not comfortable. We upped and left our lake front, poolside home, our beloved friends, and 26 years of history. And aside for some WTH DID WE DO moments, I'm thrilled that we did it.

I've learned over the years to create my own life and not be a victim of circumstance, and at the same time, keep my eyes wide open for all the signs within my circumstances that would direct me where to go and what to do. 

The answers are always right in front of our eyes; we just need to open them. 

So here's the lesson: If something doesn't feel right, maybe it's time for a change. Sure it's frightening and uncomfortable but at least you won't have regrets.

And you can always go back, although people rarely do :)

It's that time of the summer when I start itching for some style change as well. As much as I love me a comfy tee shirt frocks and sandals, I start craving some serious fashion. Why do you think September magazine issues are so huge? Adding a touch (or a lot) of chains is a great way to elevate a casual outfit to something edgy and fun.

Shop my favorite chains (and more) below.  Use the arrows on the side to scroll for more.

And while we're on the subject of change and chains, remember, every one of our actions creates a chain reaction.  Which means the power of positive change in this world is directly in our hands through even our smallest positive thoughts and actions.

On that note, have a wonderful Shabbos and a beautiful weekend!
