So last week I revealed my new hair color; which I am still loving. Even the people who tweet for Loreal commented on how cute my hair and shoes were! In fact, it seemed like everywhere I went friends and strangers alike where commenting on how good it looked. Honestly, I was feeling pretty good about it. But then I opened my email account and received a second opinion from a stranger. They shared a few comments about my appearance that didn't include words like cute or lovely. And I realize that's life. I can't control what other people think about me. I simply can't.
While it made me sad; it also made me realize that I need to be comfy in my own skin. I may not be the prettiest girl that ever walked the face of the earth, or the skinniest, smartest, fastest, etc. You get the idea. But the point is; God made me the way I am, and if I don't embrace that, I'm going to waste the rest of my life wishing I was someone else.
So I'm choosing to be the girl who wears a tank top in November simply because I wanted a little extra color in my day. I'm the girl who has bow shoes and I'm not afraid to wear them! I'm the girl who loves skinny jeans even if they don't fit my knees correctly. I want to be true to myself, even if not everyone likes it.
