Day 15: We have arrived!

Hi Ladies!  

It's me, Laura, did you miss me?  hehehe.  Of course not!  Shari was giving out some awesome advice this week!

I wanted to share with a little more of my story.  I am an engineer, an industrial engineer. I love TV shows like Tabitha Takes Over and Home Makeovers (any of them).

I know that a lot of fairy dust (money) goes into those shows, but it also takes a willing heart of the recipient.  

I take joy in helping make other's life easier whether it is in the work place or in their home.  I love giving them little clues, hints or even a trail of bread crumbs to lead them to make the changes in their environment so they can truly succeed.  

I LOVE that Shari and you, her readers, have embraced this Nerdy Tomboy because it is so much fun knowing that I can sprinkle a little hope into your lives.


So how was this challenge like all those TV shows that I love?

You let go of a previous season on Day 1

On Day 2,  You prayed.

You found your purpose, your Major and Minor Wardrobes, on Days 3.

You made decisions and executed them on Days 4 & 5.

On Day 6, you looked your past in the face and told it "I'm ready to change".

You had some fun on Days 7 & 8.

On Day 9, you spoke to the Lord from your hearts.

You faced your "Left Overs", on Day 10.

On Days 11 & 12, you understood what you needed, the basics.

You gave away excess and planned for what's next, on Days 13 & 14


You weren't alone and you can do this again.  

Help a friend or a family member with this challenge or use the same tools to look at other areas in your life.  I know my kitchen and pantry could use the same love and attention.  

You created your own "Closet Makeover".  You had the help of Shari and I, but YOU completed it.  

I am giving you a pat on the back and a huge hug!  

When facing future challenges... Remember to take it one step at a time and to have a plan for your time.

Much love and respect.

Alright ladies!  Spill it!  I want to know your stories, your laughing moments, your crying moments.  Send me pictures and where this challenge has taken you.  

If you didn't finish or didn't start, how can I help you?  

I promise not to use any pictures without permission and I will not share stories with your name on it.

I missed the actual webinar but was able to register after the fact today. Problem is, I still haven't received the link to watch it. Help!

My closet is neat as a pin and I can find things. I have donated many things that were languishing to other women who can really use them and that is a good feeling. I have been true to my colors and let go of unflattering things, difficult as that was at times!! I have copied this whole thing down to use again in the spring, when it will be very much needed again!!
Thanks for the encouragement along the journey! Karen

Suzigirl ~ Did the email come through yesterday? If not here is the link of the recording https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/179643552

Karen ~ That sounds awesome! It's a great idea to do it again in the Spring. Go have fun with your new wardrobe!

Laura,
I am having trouble finding a mid size black handbag. I'm kind of traditional. Where would you suggest?
Thanks,
Joan
