Confidence adds hair, drops ten pounds, and takes off ten years.” Larry Winget ————————————————————-
Isn’t this so true? I used to wonder why I started getting more attention from men in the last 5 years or so....I thought, do I really look that different? I don’t. But I do....because from inside my confidence shines. People truly do also guess me much younger lately, too.
Confidence is such a hard thing to just “have”. Some people naturally have it, but most have to work on it. Deciding not to care what people think, accepting yourself AS YOU ARE, dressing in things that make you feel beautiful or handsome, putting those shoulders back and walking into a room knowing that you belong there as much as anyone else. Developing the art of conversation. Sharing stories that tell people who you are. These are all things that help you become more YOU and draw people in to that uniqueness that we each have. Be confident and the world will open up for you. It has for me. ————————————————————- Photo by @josepaganphotography

It took about a year of up and down, figuring out what now works for my body. Who knew the older you got, the harder it was? (Okay, everyone, but it’s totally different experiencing it!). I’m not done losing weight. I’m not done eating healthier and generally living a cleaner lifestyle. It’s a journey.
But I AM done being so hard on myself. It has taken years of concentrated effort to realize that I’M BEAUTIFUL NOW! I’m worthy now. I can do anything I want in life....NOW.
We put things off so often. We say...when I’m this weight, when I have this much money, when things are more settled and perfect.... But life is never perfect. We have highlight perfect pockets. But it’s up and down, the tides turn. The waves roll. Up and down we go. And whatever it is you want to do, do it.
I’m done waiting. And I’m finished with feeling “less than” because I weigh “more than”. I love my working, functioning body that God gave me. I refuse to let that little devil whisper in my ear and say I’m not pretty enough or thin enough or this or that enough. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
I remember my mama apologizing to me for giving me her leg genes. Well, Mom....it’s okay, it’s more than okay, because who knew so many men liked thick thighs? Haha. And even if they didn’t...I still accept myself. Now, and in the future.
I am worthy. You are worthy. Live life and enjoy the good, fight through the bad, and love yourself and others through it all.

I had walked by this group of angry young guys yelling at each other and I felt a surge of fear in that moment. I thought, “what if these guys have guns and I just happen to be walking past at the completely wrong time, just minding my own business, in Toronto visiting a friend?” Although I ended up safe, yesterday that surge of fear and being in the wrong place at the wrong time happened for 25+ people. My heart goes out to those injured, those affected, the families who have experienced senseless loss, and to Torontonians who have now felt that sense of fear. Life is so precious. Live it with integrity and love. Be mindful of your surroundings. Be safe, my fellow Canadians 🇨🇦 ❤️ —————————————————— #canada #toronto #prayfortoronto #torontostrong #love #lovewins #lovetrumpshate #becareful #bewise #bestrong #strong #strength

I grew up a bit of a caterpillar 🐛 and then life cocooned me for awhile through pain and loss, self reflection, honesty with myself and what direction I was going. And then through all of that, after the years of feeling like light would never be seen again, the cocoon opened and out I flew. *
This dress makes me think of a butterfly with wings. It makes me think of myself, where I’ve come from, and where I am now, with a whole life and sky and world ahead of me to explore. I think that’s why I fell in love with it so deeply. Amazing how a dress can be so powerful and symbolic. *
If you are a caterpillar 🐛 right now, or in a cocoon you think will never open. It will. It has to: that is the law of nature. Be patient. Work on yourself. Learn to love yourself and be grateful for the goodness, despite the heartache that we all face in different ways and at different times in life. Embrace the journey. ❤️

I have always been a big believer in dressing, accessorizing, and makeup-ing like you want to feel. Just like they say to dress for the job you want, not for the job you have, I think the same is true with clothing, hair and makeup. There are days I feel pretty exhausted, not quite so pretty, a little down on myself. We all do: we are human.
Those are the days I want to do my makeup the LEAST. And yet when I just polish myself up a little bit, I FEEL better.
I don’t think there is a thing wrong with it. Some people are judgmental about makeup. Why?
It’s ART.
It’s EXPRESSION.
It’s passion.
It’s colourful.
It’s lovely.
It’s polished.
It shows those around you that you feel good on the inside (even if you have to fake it at first!) and that it’s coming through on the outside.
So, as Elizabeth Taylor says, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together” ;) —————————————————————. #bodypositive #lipstick #photoshoot #photographer #mirror #image #browneyes #lips #makeup #makeupbyme #makeupgeek #makeuplover #makeupjunkie #curves #curvy #curvygirl #beauty #reflection #plus #plussize #effyourbeautystandards #wethecurvy #art #expression #hat #celebratemysize #plussizefashion #plussizelingerie #sparkle photo by @joditaylor.photography
