As a style blogger, I'm constantly adding new pieces to my wardrobe.  And to keep my closets from looking like I belong on the show Hoarders, I purge.  So I had this crazy idea to host a shopping party.  Not just any shopping party, but a shop the blogger's closet shopping party.  I thought it would be really cool to gather up a few bloggers from the Atlanta area, setup a boutique styled space and let the public come to shop their heart's out or at least until their money ran out.  Well things didn't go quite as I had planned.

As I'm sure most events go, things almost never go 100% the way it was envisioned or planned.  While I won't get into all the things that went 'wrong', I will say that I will probable never host a brunch again!  The blogger's closet shopping party, Yes!  Just not the brunch...

Saturday's event taught me to push pass the point of disappointment.  To overlook what I can't control.  To get over the feelings of failure.  I learned that in order to get to the top I'm going to have to take risks.  If I'm going to be great, I'll have to kick my comfort zone to the curb.

4 Steps To Getting Rid Of The Monday Blues

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Atlanta Style Blogger, Street Fashion, Black and White outfit

By now you're probably well into your day and you still feel like blah.  SNAP OUT OF IT!  Today is the day to "David Your Goliath!"  - Mattie James.

Chances are you came into work this morning feeling like here we go again.  The rigmarole of the work week is pressing hard upon you and you keep asking yourself... Why?!?!  Why am I here?  Well guys it's because you want to be.  Don't side-eye me just yet, here me out.  Being in Corporate America for the last 11 years has taught me a lot.  So I don't regret it.  I am disappointed that I've sat here so long doubting myself and my talents.  But not anymore.  

Story time -- Early last year I told myself that that was my last year working in Corp Amer.  Forget crawling, I was running into full time entrepreneurship.  I had it all mapped out (in my mind.)  Once I quit, things would just fall into place.  My clientele would immediately grow.  Clients would be at my door waiting for me. Right?  Wrong!  My plan was short lived.  The reason being, plain and simple was that I failed to plan!  A dream without a plan is just a wish - tweet this.  That reality hit me like a ton of bricks.  Without a plan my vision lacked direction, consistency and purpose.  Guy's it's not that we don't have the guts to grind, but that we lack the proper tools to succeed.  This is the reason Monday's are hard.  

When you become resentful, envious or jealous of other women; This is a dead ringer that it's time for a change.   If you're at the point that enough is enough and that you're sick and tired of being sick and tired follow these 4 Steps to help you get rid of the Monday dumps:

  1. Pray! Pray! Pray!  I can't stress this enough.  And then listen...
  2. Proclaim out loud that things are going to change.  Remember life and death lies within the tongue.  You have the power to speak into your life.
  3. Write the vision.  Writing helps you remember the goal.  Because seeing is believing.
  4. Find and connect yourself to a person or group of people who can pour into to you.  

Wow, I didn't realize I could be such a talker.  But for real, I hope that reading this post encourages you as well as it did for me writing it.  Let me know below in the comments.  And Have A Happy Monday's!!!
