Hey guys. Happy New Year! I hope you are all well and ready to smash those new years resolutions. Well, I have never been one for all that new year, new me stuff. I feel like as people, we are forever evolving whether its at the beginning or the end of the year. I will say, 2021 had a lot of highs for me. I got to work with an organization that I have always wanted to work with since I was about 5 and, they published my work twice.
My setting of boundaries is also going well. A few years ago, I found myself in a precarious position where I had abandoned all my personal boundaries. Once I snapped out of it, I realized how far things had gone and when you are looking from an outside view, it is shocking to think of some of the things I accepted and tolerated. I learned how important boundaries are and, I had to change the way I interact with people in my life. Now, my life has completely changed. My relationships are healthier, I am much happier, I am feeling like myself again and, I am no longer people-pleasing.
Setting healthy boundaries is important because it teaches people how you want to be treated. When I first started resetting my personal boundaries, I used to feel very guilty thinking to myself how the other person feels. I then realized that, it is not going to be an easy process and not everyone will like or understand my boundaries. I am a person who always respects other peoples boundaries and now, there is no guilt on my part when it comes to taking care of me. Being a recovering people pleaser requires courage and strength. Life gets easier when you are surrounded by people who love and support you for who are instead of trying to always change you.
Now, onto outfit details. This tracksuit is so comfy and the fabric is quite soft. I accidentally saw it during a Zara visit and I am happy with my purchase. The quality is great. I am a bit careful when it comes to lounge wear. I sometimes find the quality appalling or, its overpriced. This tracksuit is a combination of good quality at an affordable price. My Mum has always tried to convince me to buy tracksuits for comfort but, I have never been a lounge wear kinda girl. However, after wearing this set, I would like to buy a few more tracksuits, especially with me spending more time at home. This coat is quite heavy, warm and affordable plus, it has a good percentage of wool. I am quite picky when it comes to fabric composition and I believe that it makes or breaks an outfit. Thank you for reading and have a great weekend.
