Stop comparing yourself to other women. You are creating a toxic environment within yourself and limiting your potential.
You have beautiful skin that protects you from the elements, a strong frame to allow movement and a mind to create; art, music and love.
So stop stressing.

I am so grateful to be your child
To be loved like no other
to be protected and watched over
Thank you for never leaving me even when I thought I was alone
Your arms were wrapped around me
You hold me when I cry
Your truth comforts me
You listen when I complain
You smile when I laugh
You watch me as I sleep
Strengthen me when I am weak
Your love never fails
Your mercies are new everyday
Your Grace is sufficient enough for me
It’s amazing how much you love me even when I don’t love myself
Even when I don’t love others
or even a knowledge your presence
My sins are forgiven, Tears dried
My joy comes every morning
You constantly favor me
multiplying my blessings and casting down my fears
All because you love me
All because you chose me
All because I am special to…

I was loving the dreamy-fantasy look in these photos, given the early morning sun. The sitting area ended up looking, to me, like a cozy sun drenched cave. Add in my faux fur vest, and it was quiet cozy indeed. This my friend, and faux, fur vest cave cozy look. That’s a mouthful! But feels totally fitting to me.
