About a month ago, I purchased a book from Barnes and Noble.com called Style Statement. I want to tell you guys how neat this book is.
If you haven't heard of the book before, I'll tell you a little bit about it. It is a personal workbook. You go through a series of questions -- an interview of sorts -- and think about things you may not have tought about before... in all areas of your life. Let me quote from the website for help here: "Style Statement is about simplifying our lives. It’s about looking at our true longings and desires, reassessing our direction, and making choices based only on what we need to be our whole selves. Clothing choices, creativity expressions, communities of friends, relationships, inspirations, and ways of living and working that bring out the best in us and push us to higher levels of fulfillment and presence in the world." Maybe you could call it a personal branding? Whatever your terminology... it is there to simplify and give you clarity in everything you do.
So after working in this book off and on for about a month... I realized my Style Statement last night (and it was definitely one of those Oprah "AHA!" moments)... I am Comfortable Refined. And after learning that, I thought, "Of course I am! That is so me."
I invite you to go over to the Style Statement website and spend a little time there to be inspired and maybe even pick up the book for yourself. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with what you find out about little ol' you..
