When you decide to live a galvanized life, you decide to own who you really are and live a life based on your values. You let go of the need to please others and spend your energy building and nurturing your own best life so you can be a warrior and a leading example for others to follow.
When we choose to feel good we raise our vibration, and when our vibration is high, we feel connected to ourselves, and when we feel connected to ourselves–well glory be, we feel connected to everyone everywhere!
Glory be. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Hallelujah too!
“You’re a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you can truly be.”
An iPod allows you to fit 1,000’s of songs in your pocket; whereas a Jukebox stays in one place and your selections are limited. What would you do if you only had to choose only 52 songs to put on your iPod? What would the list include?
Creative people evoke creativity and that’s what makes life interesting and hopeful. It’s always nice to get out and enjoy some live music up-close and personal and to shop in an independent record store, like Fingerprints of Long Beach.
Hanging out with creative people is like shopping a catalog of ecclecticism. Los Angeles is ripe with opportunities to gather style and fashion ideas from around the world and from every subculture of the city. Some of the coolest trendsetters made their own clothes or repurposed them and many times the fashion trends begin in the inner city or downtown.
I’ll never forget the crazy times we had at the Goodwill on 19th Street in Costa Mesa. Punk Rock was full swing and we had a blast designing our own outfit for the evening. The best thing about shopping 2nd hand and creating your own clothes is that you will wear the ultimate designer piece, 1/1, completely unique.
As a teen in the 1980’s I loved the punk rock movement with it’s DIY fashion sense. Back then I would go to the thrift store and try to find ways to create the “look” I desired. Sometimes this meant tearing one item of clothing apart, cutting holes in it, gluing or sewing something to it or wearing it in some unexpected way. I forgot how much fun this was.
Lately, in a desire to save money and save the planet, I’ve returned to my DIY roots and begun to create my own style using repurposed clothing. Here’s an example of how you can stretch your dollar and still have style. Can you believe I got three tops, three belts, a bracelet, shoes and a Coach purse for under $50? Not only that, I supported sustainability of our planet.
With $50 and a creative spirit I was able to get my Summer wardrobe lined up. Girls have it good, we just need to remember and frankly, I’m going to remember it all day, everyday…at least in part thanks to the clothes I get to wear.
