RED! I seem to wear this color non-stop over the holiday season. I don’t know what happens but when November hits, it’s one of the only colors I want to wear, lol! Anyone else with me on this?
I have also been wanting a suit forever so let me tell you the story behind this one. This red set caught my eye when I was in the city but when I tried it on, I wasn’t sold – the fit just wasn’t quite right in my usual size. But when I got back home I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I decided to take one more look online. Haha, we all know how dangerous that is because when I saw they had more sizes available and I could size-down, it was a no-brainer! And, I have to say, wearing this suit genuinely made me feel on top of the world! They don’t call them power suits for nothing ladies! I felt sooo good and I can’t wait to wear it more! If you don’t have a suit, I’d highly recommend you think about adding one to your wardrobe. This particular set is a great price and if red isn’t your deal, there’s also one in white here and here!
But, a little change of topic, I wanted to get a little more personal in this blog and touch more upon that “conquer the world” feeling that accompanied this suit. I will be the first to admit, I definitely do not always feel that way about myself. Anyone who has been following me for awhile has probably heard tidbits of my story and how I suffered from severe low self esteem for the majority of my life. You’ve also probably heard me mention some of the things I have done to overcome that struggle. One of the ways I do that is by affirming myself DAILY! You see, I’m a person who thrives on words of encouragement and I think for most of my childhood, I was secretly longing for people to build me up. But, as an adult you quickly realize, you cannot rely on others to fill you up and you can choose to either deal with that in an unhealthy OR healthy way. I unfortunately, chose the unhealthy way for most of my life.
But all of that brings me to THIS and some of you may know exactly what I am going to say because you see the 3 words I share often on my Instagram stories.
Every morning I tell myself these 3 things:
- You are Enough.
- You Matter and you have a GOD-given GIFT to Share with the World.
- You are Deeply Loved.
Guys, life is hard. We all have different lives and things that we are dealing with but it all comes down to this. We all struggle. One of the ways I deal is by knowing that I am enough. Even when I fail, I am enough, even when I am rejected, I know I am enough. And I want you to know that about yourself too! People could pick apart my words but I hope that this message is resonating with those of you that need to hear it. If you struggle just like I did, with believing that you are enough, I am here to tell you that you ARE! You matter, you have a purpose and you most definitely have what it takes to succeed in anything you set your mind to. xoxo.
