The past couple of weeks have been a bit of a struggle for me, trying to balance my life around one of my loves-- Two Stylish Kays. Let's just say that divine intervention allowed me to stumble across The Lifestyles of the Thrifty and Shameless which led me to Shana of ColorBlind. Both are two wonderful blogs about thrifting. So I joined Shana's Link Party to showcase my latest thrift store treasure and I was completely surprised to find out (via Twitter) that I was selected as the Thrifters Anonymous Member of the week. 

This announcement was my confirmation to continue moving forward. How often is it that people don't live their best lives because they are mentally and emotionally stuck in the past?  Maybe it is because of a losing a job, failing at a relationship, missing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, or being wronged by someone. 

These are just a few of life's circumstances that can be hard to overcome if you are not new beginnings oriented. All it takes is an assertive and committed decision to release any ill feelings or thoughts that are holding you from walking into a new personal season.  Go ahead, the best awaits you! 

So I encourage you to check out Shana's blog and join the Thrifters Anonymous Link Party every Monday to showcase your thrifty finds. In my short time as a member, I have found the support, encouragement and network that I need.
