Striped + Stripped Down

Walking with the sunshine on my face, without a care in the world. Yeah right!  Sometimes Many times that’s what this industry (blogging/bloggers/social media) want you to think… Well they’re wrong. Completely wrong. The day I took pictures of this super cute outfit (loving this sweater!) with my friend Anna from Cabi, it was literally 23 degrees outside. I definitely could not feel that sunshine on my face! A lot of times what we think we see is not at all what really is. As the old saying goes, “The grass isn’t always greener.” I like to pick a word for the year and my word for 2017 is CONTENTMENT. I tend to try to take on too much and I explain my reasoning for choosing my word in this blog post But it also comes into play when I see many other bloggers, much more successful than me, traveling to exciting places this time of year *it is Spring Break time, ya know!?* and working with much bigger brands….it’s so hard not to compare myself. I’m sure you do the same thing when you scroll through your social medias. “Look at her body, house, well behaved children, job, husband”….the list goes on and on. Well I’m here to tell you, “You are good enough!” Your body, your house, your children, your relationships….You’re enough!  How do I know?

“He has made everything beautiful in its time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11 

God has a reason for where you are in your life, for what you are doing, for what you will be doing. You just have to get out of your own head and trust Him. Easier said than done, believe me. One of my favorite books is “Fervent’ by Priscilla Shirer. I talk about it in this blog post! I even have a free printable! This book helped talk me through many specific areas of life that seem to need extra tending to. I highly recommend it and anything else Priscilla has written!
