I am two weeks into a new job (working full-time at the all-girls’ school where I substitute taught for over 6 years). The job opportunity came quickly and was a wonderful surprise holiday present! It was also a huge adjustment – working full days, every day. My recent job at Talbots was part-time, and although it gave me a jump-start to the working world (and also some chic wardrobe pieces!), it was a shock to re-enter the work-scene, after being home raising my children. Today, for the first time, I returned to the exercise class that I love. I can’t tell you how excited I was to be there, reclaiming my body and my health. This was just the first step – I plan to continue to exercise whenever and however I can and keep up my life-balance. It is so important for our self esteem and I think, makes us better at every job we do. And proper clothing helps! My outfit of choice is T for Talbots – for comfort and style. Namaste!
