Happy Women Empowerment Wednesday, my loves! Before we dive into this week’s question, I want to share a quick story with you. This past week I had a deadline to submit imagery for a collaboration with a brand I absolutely LOVE. I was so humbled and excited to have this opportunity and couldn’t wait to get started. I enjoyed every second of creating this content – styling each look, shooting + editing, writing copy, etc – the entire process was a blast.
However, when the deadline rolled around I COMPLETELY panicked and second guessed that same work I had originally been so proud of. What if it isn’t good enough? What if they don’t like it? What if they never want to work with me again? These are just some of the “what ifs” that crossed my mind, and I considered reshooting everything. Seriously.
The reason I am sharing this is because I had the epiphany that I am my own biggest critic and can be so hard on myself – I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling this way. Don’t get me wrong, we need to be ambitious and challenge ourselves to accomplish our goals, but I think we should be nicer to ourselves along the way. So today, we’re keeping the question simple – what is one thing you love about yourself? Let’s take a step back and just give ourself one really nice compliment.
I love that I am very open-minded! Life doesn’t always go the way we plan, but if we can be flexible and find the positive in any situation, amazing things will happen. You know that old saying, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonades?” That’s exactly what I’m thinking about at the moment. Make that metaphorical lemonade every dang day, girl!
