What are you afraid of? That seems to be a common question in my life lately. Scared of taking chances? Believing in myself? All of the above can be scary, but why let that hold you back?
As I have said before, I tend to doubt myself. I question things, I second guess...it is a mental game I play with myself. Because of this, I am fearful of messing up or disappointing others around me. I try not to let people see this little tendency because I want to be confident. I want to be sure of myself. And while I am (most of the time), and am proud of who I am, I am also guilty of being a perfectionist. I always have been. Whether it is what I look like, or a blog post, or my outfit...I want it to be perfect. And it is funny because, who really determines what perfection is? It shouldn't be those around me, or the media, or my family, or my husband. I am FAR from perfect and that is okay. But the one who created me thinks I am perfect. Despite my failures, my insecurities and my everyday mistakes, my Heavenly Father loves me JUST AS I AM. So with that...I stand tall and confident. I kick those fears in the face and KNOW that He loves me...which is all I need.
One of my all time favorite things to do in New York is to go to the Top of the Rock. This is my favorite view and I love being at the top and looking out over the city. Naturally, I wanted to take Darian there during our trip so she could experience it also! I loved this look because it is comfortable and classic. This color combo goes a long way and I love the way the colors look together. I mean, a good camel coat is hard to beat and this grey sweater dress from Topshop is so comfortable!
