What lessons I learnt from 2022

hello! It has been a while since I have wrote on my blog, to be honest it was one of the things that got left behind when life got just too busy, but I have realised that I really miss doing it and having it as part of my routine …so it’s back for 2023!! It’s on the list of things I want to do more of again this year along with drink more water and take vitamins, which I promise myself that I will do every year, ha.

As it’s the start of a new year and next month it will be a year since I became a CABI stylist, I thought there is no better time to jump back into it with a look at what I have learnt from 2022. I am not a big fan of all this “new year new you” business, but I do feel that it’s a great time to reflect on the past year and more importantly think about how you can build on what you have learned in the year ahead. Do you do this? Are you a goal setter?

Your never know where your passions will lead

I think the biggest lesson I learnt from 2022 is that you never know where your passions will take you. I have worked in the fashion industry for my whole professional life and I trained as a personal stylist after taking some time out to be a mum. I wanted something that fitted around mum life but that still challenged me and gave me the buzz of doing something I was really passionate about. I really loved being a personal stylist but I found myself wanting to be part of something bigger. Then I discovered CABI and in February 2022 I decided to join the team of UK stylists and became a Cabi stylist. Cabi is really all about supporting women through clothes and I instantly loved the people, the whole ethos of the brand and of course the clothes! So the lesson is you have to follow your passions..and your gut you never know where they will lead.

It’s all about the people you meet

Cabi is a wonderful community of women and it’s been amazing to be part of it and I really have met some inspiring and supportive ladies. It’s a company built on supporting each other and collaboration not competition which is so important, as we know as women we have to build each other up at every opportunity.

I have learn’t this past year that it’s all about the connections and relationships that we make that can really make a difference to our lives.

In my business I have also started networking in person and online and this has been wonderful for opening up new opportunities and friendships. I realised that working for your self can be pretty lonely and I have committed to doing even more networking and in person meet ups as often as I can.

Comparison is the thief of joy

I will be really honest here I learnt this the hard way last year. I probably did know this already but I guess with certain circumstances over the year it crept up on me and it really affected my mindset. Mindset is such a powerful thing and a valuable tool that we have at our disposal, but we have to learn how to use it to our advantage and I think at the age of 42 I’m only just starting to understand how powerful a tool it can in fact be.

One of my intentions for 2023 is to focus less on other people and where they are at on their journey and focus solely on mine. Writing it down and saying it is one thing but doing it and noticing when these negative thoughts pop up is the hard bit, but I’m committed to making this part of my mantra this year!
