Style Blogging with a Growth Mindset: New Year, New Blog
GROW YO' SELF, GIRL
Growth Mindset is one thing I had never heard about before last week. But it's so simple. What you say manifests itself. Maybe you aren't into that "mindfulness mumbo-jumbo" but I'll tell you now that if you aren't then you need to be.
You spend the most time with yourself, right? Then you must realize that you need to be your biggest fan. The "Growth Mindset" idealogy says that ANYTHING can be developed, or grown into. The "Fixed Mindset" is that little voice yelling "You can't! You won't! You never will!".

WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH A STYLE BLOG?
You're probably wondering, "What does any of that have to do with a style blog?" EVERYTHING. When I am researching content inspiration, I come across so much subtly coded negativity in the form of style advice that I sometimes have trouble sharing it with any sort of confidence.
I don't want to tell you to "hide your gut" then shame you into wearing something..or worse, shame you into NOT wearing something you once had the confidence to rock. Now I also don't want you out here looking busted! BUT I do want you out in these streets FEELING FIERCE AND TOTALLY IN CONTROL.
The only reason I was able to take a leap and start this blog (and be ok with the fact that nobody might be reading it, lol) is because I've resolved to GROW into my big girl britches. The hardest part was getting started. I am not careful with my own words, and discourage myself right out of things sometimes. That stops now!
My NEW YEAR, NEW BLOG Resolution is to support growth in all of us ... including myself. So check out my version of the Growth Mindset (Style) Guide Below. And rest assured that Short and Tailor is here to build you up, not tear you down. This is a #bodypositive blog where we encourage your #stylequeries instead of highlighting your insecurities.
