Being Confident

Being content in life seems like such a challenge. Someone always has better hair, a better job, clearer skin, a cuter house, a better house, a more trendy instagram feed, etc.

The greatest struggle for me recently is patience. Patience for the things in me that need refined and pruned. Patience for paying off debt. Patience for buying a house and having a fun yard with a garden. Patience that I will become more patient. (ha)

Just a quick, after work selfie yesterday. Makeup free, and hair that air-dried overnight.

I am excited for a few things in the coming months. Blogging again–starting with this vulnerable and honest post. The #the100DaysProject, which I will share about on Monday, when it actually starts. Then for this month, I've decided to go makeup free (I'm allowing myself mascara and lip stuff for few special events...maybe some concealer...) and natural, air-dried hair. Why? I want to embrace me, where I'm at, even with the flaws. I think it is important. I've gotten sucked into the comparing game over the past few months, with design, homes, looks, outfits, and more. It's rough, let me tell you. Comparing isn't a fun place to be.

I want to focus on my heart first and foremost. After that? Being creative, being strong, being confident, and being content–in no particular order. Now, let me go read Psalms.
