There's a pattern I'm starting to see in my life: the path I least expect to go down seem to be the ones that God leads me down time and time again. Never would I ever have thought 'hey I'm going to start a fashion blog', yet here I am launching a fashion blog with my dear friend Emily Scott. To be honest I feel inadequate. When I began to move forward with The Refined Woman all these insecurities came flooding in: why would people want to see my clothes, I'm not fashionable enough, skinny enough, well connected enough, the list goes on friends.
One thing I am committed to is following dreams regardless of fear. I never want to look back on my life and realize I didn't pursue a dream because I was scared. In The War of Art by Steven Pressfield he says:
The more scared we are of a calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.
If this is the case, and I think it may be then I must move forward with The Refined Woman. My phrase for 2013 is New Beginnings, and with the launch of The Refined Woman it is already proving to be just that!
Our hope is that The Refined Woman can be a space to empower young women to embrace their femininity within the workplace. Please check out the new home of The Refined Woman...
