Confidence is Your Greatest Accessory...

This past week I have been thinking a lot about the accessories we put on. Every once in a while I post outfits of the day on my instagram account. I love sharing how you can create so much beauty from the things you already have on hand. Often I pair my outfits with a great pair of earrings or a fabulous statement necklace. Statement necklaces are like my weakness when shopping. I resist as long as I can and then when I see them finally at that got-to-have-it sale price, I snag it up. Like this chunky necklace I got for $1 at Wal-Mart. These started out at $10 and I patiently waited. It was a happy day when one Saturday I noticed that my dream necklace was finally on sale. I did my own little happy dance in Wal-Mart. Don't worry only a few people stared :)

Now as I sat and thought about accessories this week, I started letting my mind drift to those accessories we can put on that aren't bought in the jewelry section. What I thought about was confidence. Isn't confidence really the greatest amount of bling we can put on? When we allow our confidence to show through, we become a whole other person. We become strong and fierce. We gain a strength that is untouchable. Having a confidence from within is something I have seen grow and build as I have been changing the way that I eat and live. I have become reacquainted with a girl I hadn't seen in a really long time. I use to look back at pictures of myself and it wasn't that I wanted to be thinner like she was, I really just wanted her confidence. The other day I looked in the mirror and I saw a glimmer of that girl. I am finally getting my confidence back and that is an amazing thing! I have been reminding myself now, when I get ready for the day, to put on my confidence because no matter the dress....no matter the hair, makeup, shoes, etc....no matter what I have on, if I don't feel confident....it won't be the same. When you're confident in your day to day, something amazing happens. You're more creative....you believe in yourself more because you are constantly cheering yourself on..knowing you got this.

I hope this day we can all put on our confidence. Have that confidence from within. Be awesome and know how amazing you are! Look for those nonscale victories every single day and be confident in them. Who cares if you aren't whatever size or number on the scale you think you should be. Love you and be confident in who you are....because you are pretty gosh darn amazing!

ok now that I am done with my rant for the day, I have two videos I wanted to share with you. One is from GLP Fitness on non-scale Victories and the other is a vlog from me. I posted it earlier this week and it is all about failure. I think it is something we all deal with and something I have felt very inspired to share. I hope you like it!





Thank you for always putting up with my ramblings. You guys are the best!!
