Suburban Strut Refresh

Well hello there friends! Remember me!? My name is Rachel and I am a procrastinator. And a chronic over thinker. And a size 1X.  And I love me some leggings.  Now you remember....

Really though.  What the hell? Why in the world did it take me so long to get back on the Suburban Strut train?! I will tell you.  Satan. That bastard has been on me like white on rice. Telling me "You are toooo busy. Wasn't it nice during the break for the holidays not to worry about it? I mean, no one really missed you anyway!". Unfortunately, I listened and put it off longer than I should. But today. Today is a new day and I just kicked his teeth in.  Suburban Strut is back friends and we are going to do this thing!!

I really love Suburban Strut. I love to write. I love to share clothing. And I LOVE to help women feel better about themselves. It is what I am supposed to be doing. But I never said it was easy for me. It is totally out of my comfort zone. And I kind of like it.  I KNOW that is what the Lord wants me to do and He has been showing me signs every single day since January 1 when I told myself I would start up again.  But I fought it and kept saying I was too busy.  And honestly? I was not even sure what I wanted this to be...

So that is where I am today. Figuring this thing out. My main New Year Resolution this year? Grab a hold of Suburban Strut and make it what I love. Make it so fun and enjoyable that I can't live without it.  Right now - I know I want Suburban Strut to be a place of encouragement and love. A place where women can find their inner confidence and live better lives - look and FEEL prettier everyday. I am going to talk about clothes, fun finds, tell stories, write from my heart, and follow my gut - the Lord.  When I am doing Suburban Strut, yall inspire me to be a better woman, wife, and mama.  I need this is my life, I know it!

So as you can tell, I needed to just write. I have put off starting up again for weeks because for some reason it seemed so hard.  I just needed to start writing from the heart and BEGIN!  I think that SS challenges me so much to be a true "struttter" - I hold myself back.  Realizing that is a good kick in the ass.

What is holding you back from strutting and feeling better? How about y'all join me and we get out of this "post holiday, it's freezing outside, how in the world did I gain this much over Christmas, I am tired of my clothes, I need all new everything, if only I had more time in my day" FUNK?  Let's make 2015 your year to feel better and strut. For the rest of January - we are going to talk about refreshing our lives and feeling beautiful, but more importantly confident.  I am going to call it the "Suburban Strut 2015 Refresh" and hash it #suburbanstrutrefresh on social media.

I know I need this. do you?! I will not stop until we have our own army of confident women - rocking mens' lives, raising strong babies, and changing the world - one fab outfit and organized day at at time :)!

Who is with me?!
