I Love My Body Diet

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and New Year (or whatever you celebrate this time of year!).  Both of our days were really great around here and the past 2 weeks have been SUPER busy!  I haven't had any time to get much jewelry created, or get anything posted here...... BUT, I have thought a lot about things and changes that I feel need to be made.

 One of the biggest things that has come to me repeatedly that I need to change is that I feel very strongly that I need to be more real.  Not that I am not real in what I share, but there is SO much more depth to me than has been coming across in my fashion posts, and that is needing to change.  One of the things that I am really passionate about, is women loving themselves.  Loving who they are, loving what they look like, feeling comfortable in their own skin.  I say it time and time again, but there is NOTHING more attractive than confidence.  When someone loves themselves, you can sense it, you can feel it and you find yourself more drawn to that person.  Now, there is a difference with confidence and conceitedness, and confidence is what is attractive to people... when someone just knows who they are, what they stand for, and they can accept themselves with how they are.

ANYWAY... this is a topic that I have done a LOT of work on the past 10+ years.  I have a very rocky self image past and have had to really dig deep to gain the confidence that I have now.  As I was trying to think about how I could bring more of this subject to my blog and share myself at a deeper level, an opportunity was presented to me to be a part of a 30 day group and program called the I Love My Body Diet.  This is not a food diet like the name may lead you to believe... No, this is a spiritual journey diet to help you truly fall in love with your body and what it can do for you.  This is a process where you invite God in and ask him to help you dig as deep as you can go and let go of any beliefs, resentment, heart ache that you may have towards your body.  I knew that this is what God was wanting me to do and to share my journey for all to see.... Do you know how scary that is!  Something I am learning to do is move forward with promptings when I receive them.  I have some deep fears and this process is pushing me through those.  I don't like being in front of the camera much.  I struggle with taking pictures of myself, but I feel like I have something to share and push past that... THEN, you add an actual video camera to it and my heart POUNDS!  There is also a fear of being seen by people and not being all done up since that is how I feel they expect me to look... I fear disappointing or embarrassing myself I guess.  On top of it all, I fear looking stupid and people judging me in certain things and putting myself in a situation where I can be seen being emotional... one of my biggest fears is people seeing me cry, but I am letting all of it go and trusting that God will help me through all of the fears in hopes that I can inspire even just one person through this process. 

Every day I will record a video on what my feelings are or any thoughts or experiences that I feel to share.  It is time that people see the WHY as to why I do a fashion blog and am passionate about the way we present ourselves and reflect who we are.  There is more to the fashion and jewelry, but those are big things in how we reflect to the world around us who we are, and I love being able to visually show people who I am and what I am about, so here we go!  I hope that everyone will join me in this journey and maybe be inspired to do it themselves.  If you would like to find out a bit more about it, you can go to link here and sign up if you feel inspired to do so.

Thanks for making it through that and joining me on this journey!
