Sunday Chronicles: New Year

Investment Piece: New Year
Loves, what a year. I’ve been thinking about all that I’ve accomplished, and that I want to in the next year. About being brave and being scared, and amazing shoes. I’m so grateful that you visit my little corner of the Internet. Here’s to a blank slate full of things we love, and fashion that inspires us!

Happy New Year
-Hope Galaxie
As the world celebrates
With fireworks and cakes
I’m standing here alone
Far away from home
With nothing but a suitcase and memories

As the stars surround me like water
I raise my hands in full surrender
To God, my Redeemer
Lord, this year is far from ordinary
I’ve never seen such extraordinary
People, places and things
Amazing human beings
Searching for purpose, just like me.

Looking around, I wonder
Since a year is like clashing thunder
Booming suddenly
Then vanishing instantly
Why waste time uselessly?
The old year came and went
I hope your time was wisely spent
On helping others and working hard
So that many people may regard
Your lifetime as truly great
And not just because of fate
So learn this lesson, but not from me!
Try it yourself and you will see
Making a difference starts with one step
With one foot, then the next

So walk right now into the light
And find yourself shining bright
Don’t worry what people think
Because right now you’re on the brink
Of showing others what is true
Happy New Year, from me to you.

New Year, New Me

New Year, New Me. I bet money I don’t have that you’re seeing that phrase all over social media and your emails this week. New Year, New Me. What does that really mean? Is it supposed to encourage us to set new goals and go after them? Are we supposed to wake up on January 1st completely new? What if we don’t? My theory: people fall into two categories, those who believe in “new year, new me” and those who think that nothing really changes.

What if both of those categories of people are right?

Let’s get real with each other? Along with this being the week of “new year, new me”, this is the week of hangovers. Maybe that’s because of all the champagne on NYE, or maybe it’s just the holiday hangover that makes getting back to work and your routine a little harder. After a week of so of a little more freedom, this stretch of cold and what seems like endless work is difficult to jump into. Here at Investment Piece: we’re taking it slow, easing into “new year, new me”, if you will. From here on out you can expect new posts, but we’re working back into our routine and trying to make the first week of the new year feel as easy as possible.

We covered new year, what about new me? I love to think about this blog as a dialog between us. I hope that you get out of it what I love to put in. This year I’m looking to pick up some of my favorite series where we left off: Fashion Gives Back, Designer Spotlight, Fashion in the Wild, etc. I’m also looking to give you more videos (both here and on Facebook Live), new series (getting into people’s closets, and more. And of course, my goal is to bring you exciting outfit inspiration. What about you? Is there something you love? Something more you would love to see? Is there constructive input you have on what we offer? I want this space to reflect you, as well as me, so I’m all ears!

In this year I hope we carry forward the best parts of us from 2017. I hope that we start amazing things, and become even more fantastic. And that there are amazing shoes for all of us!
