First thing’s first, my new haircut! Yes, it’s WAY shorter….but I am someone who LOVES to experiment with my hair. So I thought, new season–new hair…I mean, who doesn’t think that way?!
My new haircut aside, this weekend I went to Green Apple Books and bought Gone Girl, something I need to read before seeing the movie, and The Gospel According To Coco Chanel!
One of my favorite things to do on a sunny weekend in the city is read in the park, and Dolores Park is the perfect destination. Coco Chanel has amazing life lessons for ALL women and girls! Chapter three is titled, “On Fearlessness” and it begins with a quote from Chanel, “The most courageous act is to think for yourself. Aloud.”
I am constantly working towards finding my own voice, and more importantly, having confidence in my own voice. For me, that means not being afraid to share what I think with the world. Spoiler: It’s way harder than it seems. And what do I do when things are hard?! Read another chapter from The Gospel. In chapter eleven, “On Living Life On Your Own Terms”, I found the solution to my problem.
“The answer isn’t to climb down but to rise higher.” -Coco Chanel
