The Year of the Horse - 3 top tips to making the most of it
2. “I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.” –Coco Chanel
Opportunities are bountiful this year, especially for those looking for love. Therefore it’s always best to be prepared. Wear your best dress to work as you may meet your Mr Right on the train or at the local shop. If you are looking at expanding or starting a business this year then have your business cards on you at all times. This is a year when you never know when you might have a date with destiny.
Also don’t be afraid of experimenting with colour, styles and fabrics. For me, colour and fashion are an expression of my personality and play a big part in my life and can be a reflection of my mood. As you shift into expressing your creative side and allow the essence of you to run free this may also have a huge impact on your style. Be willing to change to reflect the real you.
3. “Pride comes before a fall.” – Unknown
The year of the horse may bring some know it alls and over opinionated idiots out of the woodwork. It may even bring out that side of you. In the case of the former be sure to use your intuition. If something or someone sounds to good to be true it probably is. Personally, I tend to enjoy and indulge these people for their entertainment value. If I intuitively feel they are open to differing open or hearing the truth as I see it then I will share this with them. If not, then I listen and smile before going about my business. Sometimes it worth remembering that we can lead a horse to water but we can’t make it drink. People have to learn their own lessons in life.
On the other hand it may be you that needs a reality check. Don’t allow your belief that you know it all or believing your own hype becoming your stumbling block. Check in with yourself regularly and rein yourself in when your ego gets out of check.
