“Intention” has become a buzzword lately –
We all want to live purposefully. A yoga instructor begins their class by encouraging you to, “set your intentions for your practice”. At the start of a meeting, it’s not uncommon to hear, “what is our intention for today?”.
Intention is Everywhere.
I’m a big proponent of intentional living. Without it, we fall victim to the whims of our emotions, and can easily be redirected to a path that doesn’t support our goals.
I see women apply intention to their careers, health, and how they run their homes.
However, often it’s overlooked in how they dress.
Instead of dressing in a manner that supports their goals, women often let their mood influence their style choices.
Choosing an outfit that simply says:
Not excellent. Not a woman with big ambition. Just.good.enough.
I learned in my dancing career if I waited for inspiration to train, inspiration never came. However, if I trained on days when I wasn’t inspired, inspiration followed suit.
I want you to remember this:
DRESS HOW YOU WANT TO FEEL, NOT HOW YOU CURRENTLY FEEL.
This is a way to hijack your emotions and support your goals by dressing accordingly. Intentional dressing.
So what *exactly* does that look like??
Well, it’s not about having the most expensive items or a closet full of clothes.
Dressing with intention begins by dressing to impress YOURSELF!
You want to look in the mirror, and see a woman who cares for herself and a woman who is valuable and worth the effort.
Choose items that showcase your body well. Items that you put on and feel like a complete winner in. Items that make you feel powerful, sexy, and confident!
Personal style is not trivial, it’s a tool to change your mood, get where you want to go, and express your femininity.
Action Step: Think of a current goal you have. Got it?
What would a woman who had already achieved that goal dress like?
Once you’ve got a picture in mind, go and do the same.
