This outfit is one of my favorites but I must admit that when wearing it I did not know that my mid-section was so see-through mmmmmmm I love the soft yellow and this skirt makes me feel pretty because it flows around my legs. Something about the swish around your legs that is comforting almost like when I was a little girl and twirling around in a new dress.
Speaking of little girl Stacey, I was thinking about the Olympics and how fit those women were and the thought occurred to me today on my long commute home about my beliefs in myself as a child compared to now as an adult. Bear with me, as I tie it all together.....
The Olympic competitions brought back memories of elementary P.E., we were always competing and I was one of the top competitors (okay it WAS grade school) but it NEVER occurred to me in any of the competitions that I would lose or that my competitor was better than me or that I wasn't good enough.
UpperCase Living has the below inspiration that is very fitting to the way I plan to change my mindset. I grew up hearing that I could do whatever I set my head to and I honestly just can't remember when I stopped setting my head. I also never compared myself to other girls when I was younger. I was confident in who I was and really didn't think about my looks at all. Not sure, when I decided that my boobs were too small, my butt and hips too large, and don't get me started on my nose. When DID those beliefs creep in? Do you know what I'm talking about it? As women, we need to start believing in ourselves again, find that little version of ourselves before all the pains and slurs and underhanded comments planted those seeds of doubt that bloomed to monsters that undermind our achievements and hinder our growth.
