I thought this was an interesting quote, based on a conversation I had yesterday when meeting a new friend. She asked me how I stay relevant and current, not only with fashion and style but for the mind and the soul. Over the course of the conversation, I found that she already invests in herself, by exercising regularly and eating healthy, she experiences new things by traveling and volunteering and has an active, faith-based lifestyle. I also asked about reading and learning. She shared that she is an avid reader and loves a good novel. I shared one way that I continue to grow and learn is a simple app on my phone, Blinkist. While walking or working out, I listen to a short "blink" (15 minutes or less) of a nonfiction book on a variety of topics (19 different categories) that interest me. These blinks provide key highlights to over 2000 bestselling nonfiction books. This habit allows me to stay current and fresh on a variety of topics and also provides a great start or an end of the day. I can boost my knowledge, skills and widen my world in a short time frame. The best part is that I can download these to my kindle for reference and that you can read them or listen in.
The definition of a perennial is: lasting or existing for a long or apparently infinite time; enduring or continually recurring. This is my goal, to stay current, be relevant and to feed my mind and soul every day. I feel it's more important than ever as a woman to show our kids, husbands, partners, grandkids, and families that we will continue to be a strong, lasting flower (presence) in this world.
Do you consider yourself a perennial? Would love to hear your thoughts on how you continue to grow and learn.
In this pic, I am wearing my favorite style purchase within the last year. My Eileen Fisher moto jacket! (There are still some sizes left, details in the gallery below.) It is light enough to wear a sweater or tee underneath, and is perfect for any weather condition, it is machine washable and I can dress it up or down depending on my outfit. What is your favorite clothing purchase that you wear again and again... or should we say perennial piece? :)
If you decide to purchase Blinkist, I may be compensated if you use the link I provided. Purchase this app any way you can. I highly endorse it.
Have a great rest of the week and as always, thank you for stopping by the blog. My goal is to share authentic ageless style; fashion, beauty and relevant lifestyle information as we share this fun journey together! I appreciate you!
