What I MATTER IS NOT...Plus The Thursday Blog Hop!

Hi everyone, it's I MATTER day!  And, in an effort to make sure we are all on the same page, I would like to reminder you of what I MATTER does NOT represent...

I MATTER is not a statement of selfishness.
I MATTER is not for divas.
I MATTER is not saying no else matters.
I MATTER is not about spending tons of money.
I MATTER is not for tantrums.

I MATTER does say we care about ourselves inside and outside.
I MATTER acknowledges we can and will do more for others when we feel good about ourselves.
I MATTER notes life is short, so we must put ourselves on the priority list.
I MATTER means we do this primarily for ourselves...no one else. 

Because, I love to enjoy life, I am wearing lots of color today to wear for a celebration of SAN ANTONIO'S FIESTA 2015!  Tomorrow is our BATTLE OF FLOWERS PARADE...schools will be out for the day as we attend the largest parade in America run completely by women! Oh Yeah...I wrote about the parade two years ago HERE

If you are in San Antonio today from 4-7, make sure your join me at Elizabeth's Boutique on 1604 for a great event with fashion stylist Elizabeth Abbott and esthetician, Monica Casell!  Door prizes, specials, and lots of fun.

Now, go out and do something good for you...because we all need to carry the I MATTER sign.

I hope you will also enjoy the great reading below from the Thursday Blog Hop or hop on yourselves.

Have a fabulous Thursday!

  1. Oh my...this blouse and the Colors are sooo beautiful Pam. Thanks for Hosting. xo Sabina | Oceanblue Style

  2. I totally agree with Sabina. The blouse is not just nice. It is fabulous. Suits you so well. It is modern, lively, colourful. Happy spring like. And it doesn't need a scarf. It is fine on itself. Couldn't see what the brand is.

  3. You look happier and more vibrant than ever in that fun and artful print blouse, Pam!!
    Have a great day!!

  4. Sadly, too many of us women were taught that making ourselves a priority and caring for ourselves was selfish. Wonderful reminder, Pam. Thanks for hosting this link up. T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  5. Really love this colorful blouse on you, Pam. So pretty. Looks really nice with the white pants and sandals. What a great look!


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
