Why does change after age fifty make such an immense impact on us? Change is happening throughout life. Yet, when life becomes big change after big change after big change, then, we have big choices to make about how we will navigate it all. We can choose to sink into despair or choose to enjoy life one day at a time…understanding life is short and goes by all too quickly. I choose the latter. This week is another new beginning for me and the most significant one since I left teaching last spring. The picture above was taken last summer when I decided to plunge into self-employment…but I was still open to all opportunities.
Tuesday, I will write in greater detail about what this new turn in my career represents for me. Today, I look to these new beginnings with great anticipation. Confidence is always important for a new job, but, perhaps, even more so when beginning a new job after age 62! I am more confident of my abilities than ever before, and very confident of how I look as I begin them. Well, of course, I was sick with the flu for the last two weeks and that does not help…but I will rise Monday morning, put on a power outfit, and head out to see what this new beginning holds. Attitude is key for confidence.
The wonderful people at TAHARI ASL desired to celebrate this momentous occasion with me, so they sent A POWER SUIT for days when I need to be professional-ready. Nothing says print publishing to me like black, white and red! I really prefer a wardrobe of separates since they provide inspiration to mix things up a bit.
Fit, of course, is critical. I hope you can see the lines on the back of this jacket…such a flattering cut and fit. Also, the jacket is shorter and the zippers on the front once again take the eye line to a flattering place.
A suit like this will be for Chamber of Commerce luncheons or when I go to interview someone in a corporate setting.
I have a special place in my heart for this brand. Right after I turned fifty and went through a makeover, I was searching for clothes to help me feel amazing in the body I currently possessed! I first discovered TAHARI ASL at MARSHALL'S and purchased several of their professional pieces. I am happy to begin another new chapter with them.
Confidence is key this week...I need to look and feel my best. This is a great start! Please join with me on this new path of career reinvention and believe...all things are possible.
Now, let's go see about my blogging partner, who is also on a journey of new beginnings...JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE!
Walk with Confidence!
