OOTD : Glowing in Coral....

Everybody knows how it feels to take numerous of photo's and end up being disappointed (especially bloggers) ; but I think it's about time we stop viewing ourselves so harshly. Society is constantly telling us, that we're not good enough, unless we look and dress a certain way. Personally, I'm done conforming to society's rules, I choose to be me, whether people like it or not.



I'm not a size 2, I don't have the latest fashion or gadgets, and I don't have a glamorous lifestyle, and that's okay! After years of being taunted about the way I look, I've grown through those painful experiences, and I love who I am now! My point is, don't let society dictate who you should be, that choice is only up to you! So embrace who you are, kick the haters to the curb, and strut your stuff!



And as for taking pictures, what you might consider your worst picture, someone else will see it as your very best. It's all about perspective, and beauty comes in all shapes and sizes; so just know that you are beautiful, regardless of what the camera says! ;)

It's bloggers like you who inspire women like me.
A positive outlook is the most important aspect of life.

Society has placed such bold barriers and it's nice to see us start to tumble them down.

Great post! Started following you on bloglovin' now. I found you through the #ftfcommunity facebook.
