To start off my new blog series (the consistency and longevity of which I cannot ensure), I first developed a title.
Creatively, I just took the title of the book.
If you had not read my previous blog post, I am currently trying to reinvent myself in the new year by following the pages of a book by author Jane Garton called, “Everyday Confident: 365 Ways to a better you,” which sounds like some cheesy chick novel aimed at desperate females filled with condensed tips and “inspirational” quotes.
However, it seems like a very helpful self-help novel (and this blogger needs a lot of self-help), so I am determined to follow the instructions that Garton has laid out for me. Starting with…
On my first day, I am supposed to attempt to start a small project, one in which will fill me with self-gratitude upon its completion.

You are more than welcome to wear a potato sack or a poorly-selected outfit from an over-hyped retail chain, but they probably won’t win you that job interview or that girl/guy you’ve been eyeing at the *__insert hangout spot here__*. Not to mention it always feels good to look good.
To start my new project, I have selected pictures from the internet of various fashion icons and standouts: Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn, Jackie O, Emma Watson, Kate Moss, etc. etc. etc. This process took a lot of strenuous Google-ing, just so you know.
Then I made up a list of things I need to complete my project:
And… that’s it.
What? The book said “start small.” It did not specify how small. I believe this is a refreshing start to my 2013, and an optimistic sign of my journey to a reborn, confident Lisa.
(Lisa would be me)
