January in July

Hi friends! So in case you haven't signed up for my newsletter yet, I wanted to let you guys know about some additions I'll be making to the posting schedule. We're upping to three posts per week! Going all the way live. And for example, I am posting today, a Monday, something intended to be inspirational because who doesn't need that at the beginning of the week, and then I'll be posting again, Friday, something fashion-forward because a big component of this blog is fashion and representation, plus "Fashion Friday" sounded like a fun thing to do. And of course Thursdays I'll continue posting whatever yahoo idea pops into my brain. Sound good? Everybody all set? Okay great, check out my first Monday post below!:

As we go into the last half of the year I've been reflecting about what it means and how it feels to reach the halfway point. Sometimes I feel like July, if you want, can kind of be like a second January. The opportunity to start over is always there with each new day but there is something particularly unique about being in a place where you're able to look back at the year so far and then look forward, bearing in mind that you have the exact same amount of time left to accomplish whatever it is you want to do. It's sobering, invigorating, and provides a little mid-year boost that I don't know about you, but I DEFINITELY need. Let's take that opportunity, yeah? Let's start again, rebuild, catch our second wind. We got this you guys, we got this.
