I bought the book Style Therapy: 30 Days to Your Signature Style by Lauren Messiah.
So far I’m in Week 3 of the challenge to alter your wardrobe so that you can get what you want in life.
Messiah crafted her career as a personal stylist after hitting her own roadblocks in life.
Now she’s a million-dollar entrepreneur.
The memoir aspect of Style Therapy is the part that inspires me the most. At the end of this blog entry I’ll link to Messiah’s website.
She used to be a Hollywood stylist. Her life turned around when she decided to go into business for herself helping ordinary women.
In Week 2 of the 30-day challenge you confront other people’s opinions of who you are and what your body looks like.
Messiah confessed that after a hurtful comment about her thighs looking fat in shorts she didn’t wear a pair of shorts until she turned 36.
Her defiance to rock short shorts inspired me to get over my own gaga about my thighs. To buy and wear a pair of shorts too.
Like Messiah I think being open and honest is the way to go.
My literary agent told me that maybe I should archive this blog and focus on other things.
Counter-intuitively I decided to keep posting blog entries here that tell the truth.
Messiah links rocking your authentic style to achieving your goals in life.
While working on the exercises in Week 3 I was empowered to reach for the stars.
Later in life I find myself becoming only more ambitious not less motivated.

Reading the emails she sends me is one of the highlights in my inbox.
