April 2017 Affirmations

Spring carries many different meanings. Whether people enjoy spring with celebrations during the Vernal Equinox or chocolate bunnies or tree blossoms, spring is a time to renew. After advocating for and sharing my advice on how to advocate for and support causes, I feel empowered to take on this next month. I still have January, February, and March’s affirmations in my mind as I move forward, and it feels amazing to have incorporated these small steps to reach a larger picture of a more sustainable, balanced, and healthy lifestyle. On occasion, I have made missteps like neglecting time for myself, but I’ve enjoyed making these affirmations a part of my everyday life.

So, now that I’ve been able to incorporate the first three sets of affirmations into my life, what is my next plan? This month, I’m bringing some affirmations to my style. If you’ve read my blog for a while, April’s affirmation should come to no surprise. If you haven’t, here’s my affirmation for this month: I am a person who advocates for and participates in Fashion Revolution Day.

If you know the story behind Rana Plaza, you understand why the importance of this day has become more significant. The incident regards the death of over 1,000 garment workers who were killed in 2013 after the collapse of the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh. This tragedy brought to light the devastating conditions of garment workers and the price we pay for fast fashion. On April 24th, people bring awareness to this ugly truth by wearing their clothes inside out, taking a picture, posting it on social media, and tagging companies who manufactured their clothes with the caption: “Who Made My Clothes?” This month, change in the fashion industry will be my focus and I will not only advocate for but show you how you can be a part of this important change.

  1. What a great idea! Fashion is such a messed up industry and it’s really hard to know who is actually ethical. :-/

      Yes, it’s very complicated. I see more chains like H&M and Levi’s making commitments, but I do more digging before I believe any specific company. I hope someday it can be less difficult and straightforward.
