Goodbye 2016… Hello 2017! Check out how we foresee ourselves for this upcoming new year.
When Izzy asked me how I envisioned myself in 2017 I immediately thought “I want to shine!” We had this idea of showing y’all what our resolution was instead of just telling y’all…hence, the “dress-olution.” I recently made the decision of going back to work after becoming a mother and although I am loving what I do, I am also experiencing the guilt of leaving my child for several hours at a time. After battling with post partum depression and a lengthy recovery from an emergency c-section I decided it will be ok to put myself first every once in a while which includes working again. In 2017 I want to shine…as a mom, wife, fashionista, working woman, and just every aspect of my life. I decided it will be the year to find myself again, to find Lidia; what she used to be and what she can become! I want to take risks and gain confidence. And I want to start feeling good about myself again, no matter what size I am. My wish for you this new year is for you all to find what makes y’all happy. Choose yourself first every once in a while and make sure to find your HAPPY. We deserve it! Cheers to 2017…
New Year? As I write this piece, I am doing it with a heavy heart. You see, 2016 did a number on me. I am finalizing a divorce, trying to figure out my single self and learning how to live life after marriage. Some very important lessons I learned these past months or the dark age as I call it. First, yes there is good in every human but there is also noticeable bad. I had to learn the hard way that sometimes the good isn’t worth the bad. That is a lesson that applies to friendships and love interests, and a lesson I am taking into the new year. I learned the best way to heal a broken heart is to focus on self growth, doing for the less fortunate, and trust in God even when you feel far from him. Get up and find something that will benefit WE even if doesn’t consist of fast perfect results. I learned that self healing is benefiting but as humans we weren’t created to survive in solitude therefore I’ll never block my friends or God again. Judgment will forever live. I’ve learned to not be sorry for being a human woman. Most important I learned that things that I thought would kill me did not. I am still alive. I learned to rebuild. Yes, that is my 2017 “thing” , to rebuild. So lets build and rebuild ya’ll!!! Much love and blessings for you all. Thank you very much for the love and support you provide for our House of Alice Rose. I am honored.
May your last day in 2016 be merry and may 2017 bring you all lots of happiness, success, health, and self love!
Happy New Year,
