A community of women post their thoughts on these topics and tell stories of personal experiences.We’ll share what inspired us, challenged us and more!

Sometimes life takes over and leaves you without a minute to spare, but like everything, we evolve and learn to work with the seconds we are left with during the day. We get better at taking advantage of the quiet moments of the early morning to do a little clean up or stay up a little later to read a page of your newest read. Lately, I’ve been going to bed later and waking up earlier. I’m slowly transitioning into the morning person that existed before the snooze button was discovered sometime in my middle school years. It feels good to be able to figure out how to use these 24 hours in a less stressful way. I may have a million things to do and some may get done late, but I bring myself to awareness and realize, it’s not going to completely change my life for the worse if it’s a few minutes late or I have to finish it in the morning. When there are so many things going on, it’s easy to get caught up in them, feel stressed and feel as if nothing is getting done, but perspective is a wonderful thing and planning is even better. I wake up in the morning, write  a list of things I have to do and then separate those things into parts of the day. Sitting here in this moment, I make myself focus and get at least one thing from my list done. Once it’s done, I take a break, grab a cup of tea, put a pretty dress on and sit right back down to work on another project. It works! I feel less stressed, more productive and Miss Visual over here sees items disappear from the to do lists before my very eyes. Do you ever feel completely overwhelmed by life and all of the projects going on? How do you cope? Do you like lists? How do handle it? I’m trying over here and feeling better and better everyday, but I always love to hear more ideas on coping with a busy schedule!

I hope today encourages you in showing that you are not alone with your overwhelming schedule and ever expanding to do lists. It’s a struggle, but just remember, it doesn’t get easier, you just get better. We all have to learn to manage our time and do our very best at everything we can!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

Life in Between Goals

Life in Between Goals | Chic to Chic Blog | www.chictochicblog.wordpress.com

 

Busy busy.. that’s what life has been for this gal over here. Do you ever feel like days pass faster than you can keep up? That’s how it’s been lately. Sometimes it feels as if you’re constantly just trying to keep up with goals and commitments. Some fall through and others take precedent. Trying not to be too hard on yourself for those things that fall through isn’t the easiest, but there are only so many hours in the day. We can only do so much to keep up and then when life settles down and you can take a deep breath, work on those goals and don’t give up.

This little blog of mine became a place to express my thoughts, share my ideas and encourage others a little over a year ago. It’s been a wonderful opportunity to practice my writing skills, push myself to explore and has even brought me a few incredible new friends. But sometimes life gets busy and I’m not able to post every day of the week and I feel guilty. Then I remember, this life is meant to be lived and enjoyed and this blog is a reflection of that. In order to write about life and the exciting and even busyness it has to offer, I have to live it and enjoy it!

I love reading your comments and writing for you, but if you’ll be patient with me as I enjoy every moment of this crazy life, I’ll work on giving you the best of me through writing and sharing. I don’t want to just do a post to do it, I want it to encourage you, inspire you and give you a little insight into this little City Dweller’s life. So in between the craziness, I’ll be working on giving you my best through this blog in a way that keeps you inspired, whether it’s daily or weekly.
Until next time, whether that’s tomorrow or next week, thank you so much for reading and for all of your sweet comments. Each one encourages me to keep Chic to Chic going. I do it for myself, but I do it for my readers too. In the mean time, I’d love to hear your thoughts about Chic to Chic. How long have you been reading? What are your favorite topics to read about? Any questions you have about me? I’d love to hear more from you! Go ahead, leave a comment!

 

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

Inspiration | Mark Rothko

For a while now I’ve admired the abstract impressionist movement. The minimal, thought-provoking art just makes my heart do a little spin. One of my favorite artists is Mark Rothko. His color and imperfect works always catch my eye. His art is a perfect blend of color and paint strokes and I can only imagine what it would be like to hang an original in my house one day. Until then, I came across a fabulous website called All Posters that has a wide array of fine art prints from artists that range from Mark Rothko to Andy Warhol and Claude Monet to Vincent van Gogh. What a great way to display a favorite artist’s beautiful work in your home. Their prices are quite affordable and I can’t wait to get my hands on a few Mark Rothko prints. They’re great statement works and definitely a conversations starter. Check out some of my favorite prints!Mark Rothko | All Posters | Chic to Chic Blog | www.chictochicblog.wordpress.com
