When we all sat down to come up with ideas for weekly topics, Savvy made the list.  We went back and forth on it for a while… is there enough substance to build a week around this word?  And what is savvy anyway?  A funny word if you say it over and over in your head as I’ve done while starting this post (like many words you say one too many times until it turns into a new one altogether).

And so Savvy stuck.  Because it’s actually quite simple.

It’s who you are.  And it’s what you do.  Something that makes you unique, or something that gives you so much in common with others.

Business savvy

Tech savvy

Fashion savvy

Design savvy

Photo savvy

Music savvy

Book savvy

The list could go on and on.

And then I think of my friends and can easily attribute a savvy-ness to each them… my own little experts in certain areas, something I may lack an understanding in and someone I can go to for their knowledge, expertise and opinion..  (for example, wait ’til you see Heather’s post later this week… it may change your whole life when it comes to grocery shopping!).  Our friends bring so much to our lives; have you ever stopped to think what it is that makes them so unique… what they’re “savvy” at and why you admire them for it?  And what would they admire about you?

I took 5 minutes to write down a list of 5 savvy things about myself… and 5 savvy things I love Heather, Jenn and Mandi for.

It may sound silly.. but tape it to your mirror, monitor, or car dashboard for the next few days, and remind yourself how awesome you are… and even better!  how fortunate you are to have awesome people who make your life better.  You may just need their advice soon!
