Only for Yourself

When did you write your last CV or your biography?
Was it to apply for a job? Or for your website? Some days ago a friend of mine called me with an issue that sent me on a quite interesting time travel. She is writing a book about single moms – and wanted to interview me about my personal story. In order to not get confused about my dates and how long which chapter in my life lasted – I decided to write a short biography – with one difference: it was the first time ever I was not trying to impress anyone! I did it only for myself!
So my focus of writing changed completely and the insight was awesome!
I had to rewrite it three times. But then it became clearer and clearer for me: I was able to see the situations and circumstances which changed my life and its direction and my growing consciousness! And as you surely know, they say there´s a 7 year rhythm in each ones life for transformation and changes… …to be honest – I did not really believe this. But now I had it directly in front of my eyes – and it´s true! As I´m right now in the middle of my „sixth chapter“ – I look very much forward to the upcoming ones!
Even more when I find inspiration in other peoples way of leading their life!
One great example is this exceptional lady:What a relief and joy to find inspiring women like her out there in the world wide net.  Yes, they really exist – so there´s hope :) They´re intelligent, cool, in peace with themselves and found their own independent way of living a fulfilled life:

I accidentally virtually stumbled over this lovely lady from New York and was fascinated at once. Even more when I started to read her smart comments. She writes a blog about fashion on her website http://www.accidentalicon.com. Her articles are all related to style. Her view about how to wear grey or how she became unexpectedly a fashion icon at the NY fashion week are witty, well observed and really worthwhile reading!

What she says about herself:

She does not consume garments, she lives her life in them and dresses honestly. She has original style without being eccentric. She chooses garments and experiences that allow her to be the self she is and the self that is always becoming.

Hats off: What an inspiring woman and a great role model, too!

BTW: Why not give it a try? Make yourself a gift and write your biography only for yourself! Promise, you`ll be amazed!
