yesterday's post. I will be adding some studs and bracelet I bought from American Eagle about a year or so ago. And one new addition to my jewelry addiction :) An arrow necklace that came today. I also bought this on etsy and think it goes great with the other accessories...
I really love the brass/copper color these pieces all have. And the pop of turquoise just makes my heart happy.
I'm just in love with all these arrows.
And here is the next post in my 31 Days Project...
Day 5 (but really 6). Jaded beauty. Has the world's definition of beauty ever jaded you?
Ha has it ever jaded me? The world's definition of beauty made for a very self conscious little girl for my (almost) entire childhood and young adult life. Starting in about 4th grade I was the chubby girl. I'm not asking for a pity party, I am responsible for the way I treated my body, but I never was comfortable in my own skin. I have always been embarrassed of how I looked and I think growing up and seeing everyone idolize beautiful people and look down on ones that don't match their expectations didn't help me shake that thinking. Because I wasn't sure of where to find my identity I always felt like I wasn't worth much because of the fact I didn't fit into the "pretty girl" description.
But you see I know better now. I find my identity in my savior, and He calls me beautiful. That doesn't mean that I don't still try to measure myself on the world's scale of beauty every now and again. But I find myself praising God for how he made me and now more than ever I am focused on getting myself healthy not just thin.
Proverbs 31:30 (NLT) "Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised."
