Today's theme caters to all you cat ladies, men who love cats, and cat lover's all around the world! Let's celebrate the best holiday around, put our catty get-ups on, and boast in cheer for World Cat Day!
Inspired by the cat woman, I chose to do a cream sweater cardigan, black pants, white tank, loafers, and a black tote to carry the multiple cats in. I feel this will capture the entire essence of what I aspire to be. Not only do I love cats, but I live for them. Having four cats myself, I know how to look and what to do. So I chose the outfit based on what I would personally wear on this glorious day. I also chose to add the Forget-Me-Not Ombre necklace to add the little flare of summer to the ensemble. Cats are the best animals on the planet and it is time to celebrate their 9 lives. Happy World Cat Day and celebrate with your cat tanks, and cat sweaters because today will be the best Fashion Friday I have to offer.

When you complete a big accomplishment, and you are asked how you did, do you normally focus on what you did wrong...or do you celebrate what you did well?
I admit that I have a habit of dwelling on what I didn't do as well as I had wanted. Sometimes I even get on a fixation loop of replaying my mistakes in my head. But what I have learned is that this is not a productive behavior and can lead to anxiety and depression.
What I have started to do is focus on what I did well and acknowledge that first. Then instead of looking at my errors as mistakes, I view them as areas of improvement instead of calling them failures. For every area of improvement that I identify, I assign a new action or make a plan to improve so that maybe I don't repeat that behavior or pattern in the future.
Today I want you to reflect on 2020. Push those negative thoughts aside.

Every great movie has a great soundtrack that accompanies it. The music sets the stage for the emotions of every scene. It pulls you in, your heart syncs with the rhythm of the beat, and you will connect with the moment and really feel the emotion more deeply than if there was no music.
Visualize this: If you could write your movie, the way you would want it to look, what would the story be?

The ability to relate and to connect, sometimes in odd and yet striking fashion, lies at the very heart of any creative use of the mind, no matter in what field or discipline.
