feeling pretty shouldn't hurt

Love Letter

He-loo!  Just wanted to have a quick chat and say I appreciate your support!  You have listened when I've whined, cheered when I've triumphed and encouraged when I've slumped.  Thank you.

I took a big step recently with my little blog here.  I entered a beauty blogger contest and actually told people about it.  I wasn't chosen to compete, but I feel like a winner for stepping out of my beauty box just the same.  Most people know I am not a fan of missing my mark, and failure is no friend, either.  I don't like not being perfect.

Something shifted inside me the day I submitted my work for consideration.  I gained a confidence that went beyond my usual bravado.  My work and creations have value even if there is no gold star given at the end of the day, no finish line, no contest.  This, along with a few other steps on my journey, has changed me in ways I can't even explain.

And I'm feeling good.




As for the blog, if there's anything in particular you'd like to see, drop me a line.  I'm always looking for a little direction!

Cheers to gold stars or not!
