When I was in 1st grade, I was held back because I had a hard time reading. It's not that I couldn't read, but I was slow and I'd get held up on words for a minute. Funny thing is...I still get held up on words. Yet, and I'm going to celebrate myself for a second here, I'm quite the wordsmith. 👏 . Words pack so much power. I think, subconsciously, I've always known this. Words are not meant to be passed on so quickly, like my 1st grade teacher may have believed. 🙌 . I enjoy writing poetry. Rhyming comes easily and naturally to me. But I also enjoy dissecting words and what they mean to ME...regardless of if good ol' Webster would agree. 😉 . CREATE for example. I think this word holds so much more power than Webster gives it credit for. This is my personal definition for "cre-ate". What do you think? Drop a ❤ if this post inspired you!
You ever look back at yourself 12 months ago and ask "who the hell IS that?!" A year ago I had just shaved my head to overcome the agonising feeling of being out of control due to Alopecia. You never know how important something is till it's gone and when I lost mine, I literally didn't know myself. I fell into depression, took medications from the doctor and turned to food and drink for comfort. Real smart! 🙈 Then I realised my two girls who were still brand new at life, were looking at me to show them how they should deal with this! That was so terrifying! Everything they'd feel about body image in life would come from this utter shit storm I was currently processing! So I decided I needed to get strong! Physically and emotionally because THAT I could control! I needed to ditch yo-yo diets and emotional eating and lose the weight that was also bringing me down. That's when Lauren reached out to me 🥰 Some crazy American mama that I just knew I needed in my life! And remember, crazy people are the best kind of people!💫 Fast forward to today and I can't believe who I've become. I'm active, confident, energised, motivated strong and become stronger every day - body and mind! 🎉Sometimes we really do need to take that leap of faith!💫 I challenge you! What is holding you back? Will you be here WITH me in 12 months or regretting never taking that leap? @strengthen.soul
Confidence can be fickle.. In the spring I attended an event that promised make up, hair, and headshots. So I booked a facial with @cataramedspa and walked to the event. What could go wrong? Seemingly, EVERYTHING. No hair techs. Only make up *touch ups* and the headshots (were solid but also, harsh lights!) My first reaction to these proofs were, “CRINGE. Who would trust someone with messy hair?” I was mortified. Looking back, they’re not exactly useful BUT not as terrible as I first perceived. I wish I would have dwelled on the positives instead of the things that did not hit my expectations. After taking these my friends @dressedfortime mentioned to my friend @byjulesisabel “I’d buy a house from her.” And I chuckled because I felt like I was just faking it to make it. Inwardly, I was so disappointed with myself for not being prepared. But live and learn, right? Also included how I touched these up in Lightroom because I love softer cooler tones and most people deliver warmer photos than my preference. Also real headshots should be a thing in my future. If I’ve learned ANYTHING from following @lipstickandink it’s that I could step up in a few ways to portray myself better professionally. Okay all of that to say maybe we take ourselves too seriously sometimes. Gotta remember the good and just chalk up the bad to a learned lesson. We don’t need to carry all that we burden ourselves with sometimes. We’re HUMAN you feel me?
