It’s time. You’ve waited long enough. I know how hard it can be, because I’ve been there too. Waiting around till we’re the perfect weight, till our skin clears up, till our hair is the right length, or we get the promotion we want. We’ve all done it; waited for the “perfect” time to start feeling great.
I’m writing about it because I’ve fallen victim myself. There were times I wanted to be thinner, and other times I was saving up because there was a piece that I thought would make the difference - but I’m telling you, it wont. If it’s not one thing, it will always be another.
My whole life I’ve REALLY hated photos of myself. You may have noticed, you don’t see a ton of me on the “interwebs” - and that’s my fault. It’s because I hate pretty much every photo of myself, but you know what? That’s going to change. I’m starting with this post - all sorts of photos of me! Is it uncomfortable, yes. But does it need to be done, YES. I’m a stylist, people need to see me. I can’t wait until I’m perfect, because I never will be. My motto with my clients is: HIGHLIGHT don’t hide! And I haven’t even been taking my own advice…for shame! It’s because we are SO critical of ourselves, that nothing ever becomes good enough. My years of styling the everyday woman has taught me one thing for sure: No one is as critical of us, as we are of ourselves. Period.
I’ve challenged myself to share photos and I’m challenging you to something a little different. Stop waiting! Make the decision today to feel GREAT. To feel great in your skin, in your clothes, in your life. So, here’s my challenge to you:
What are you done waiting on, and what’s been holding you back? I want you to tell us what you’re DONE waiting on, and what you’re going to do despite not being perfect. What moves are you going to make? What outfit are you going to wear? What conversation are you going to have?
