I have always been one to think that part of feeling good is also looking good. I'm not saying that I only wear the most expensive clothing that I can find. I'm saying that I like to feel put together.

I used to always do this. There wasn't a day in high school where I didn't wear makeup. Even if I wore sweats, I still had concealer and mascara on.

I have talked about my dark hole before, and I have to admit I didn't adhere to my rule at all.

I didn't wear makeup, I didn't get "dressed", I gained almost 40lbs... I stopped caring about myself.

Part of my New Years Resolution for 2013 though was to change this. I want to get back in shape, take the time to get dressed when I leave the house, I want to wear makeup and do my hair... I want to feel good, not just because I am happy with where I am, but because I feel like I look good too.

I have made a few changes...

I cut 14 inches off of my hair and donated it to Locks of Love. The same day I started the process of going blonde.
I have started wearing makeup again and planning my outfits.

I accessorize with all of the adorable jewelry items I have collected over the years...

And I take pictures of myself that I actually am proud to share.

I have started to gain my confidence back, and I know this is just the beginning. I'm excited, and I can't wait to share my journey with you all.
Learning to love yourself again is hard, but it's so worth it in the end.

  1. I love the positivism behind this post! It's super important to like who you are. I keep trying to teach the children I work with that.
