My New Happy: Being Kind - Even To Yourself

Being Kind - Even To Yourself

Happy Wednesday!  I'm in LA with my son on a little adventure, enjoying some sunshine while it snows back home.  

Do you like to try new trends when it comes to fashion, or do you stick with your tried and true outfits?  I tend to wear (and buy) the same things over and over again.  Being a part of Belong Lifestyle has helped me step outside my comfort zone.  For instance, I've never worn a body con dress before.  And I found that I really liked it!  There are so many ways to style a body con dress, and with this turtleneck poncho, it takes on more of a skirt look.

And these colorful jeans.  It's always been good old blue denim for me.  But I got so many compliments on this red pair, and they'll be perfect to see me through winter and as we transition to spring.

Did you choose a "word of the year"?  I never have in the past, but as I kept seeing them in my social media feeds, the word "kindness" popped into my head.

The entire world has gone a little crazy right now, and it seems that we could all use some common kindness.

Kindness to our friends and family, kindness to strangers, and even a little kindness towards ourselves.  And it doesn't have to be a huge gesture.  Small acts of kindness are so easy to perform each day, and they can have a big impact on those around us.

I've always tried to be kind, but in 2020 I'm going to be more conscientious about kindness, and make it a part of every day.  

Have a great week, friends!


  1. We definitely need to do whatever we can to spread more kindness in the world right now! Love the ponco layered over the dress!
    Those red pants are so fun and really brighten up a dreary winter day!

  2. Winning outfits - omg! And awesome to be somewhere sunny. We're headed to Florida in just under two weeks (but who's counting..?)
    My word is Drive and I wrote a long Tamara-esque psychobabble post about it Friday - haha!

  3. I couldn't agree more. Even if you cover the body con dress up with another piece, at least the dress is slimmer to your body. That's always good for layering.
    And I love those red jeans...yay!!

  4. Kindness is such a strong and good word!
    I´ve choosen "trust" for this year, because after cutting out toxic people in the last two years I want to let new friends in my life in 2020 and for that I have to remind myself, that it is important to trust.

  5. weather its in style or not if u like it, don;t be afraid to wear ur sense of different..wear what everyone else because it makes u stand out.

  6. I saw that your blog is famous now so make your own wiki page just read how to start a wikipedia page it help you make your self

  7. Are your friends putting you down first? You do know that the character you develop now will become ingrained in your personality as you get older? You don't want to be a cruel old man!! I would be confused as to why a friend would hurt my rva-ltd feelings..and yes, I would avoid them
