Self confidence is such a finicky thing. I never really had it. When I was younger, I didn’t like how I looked. I always felt that I looked awkward. Eyes too squinty. Nose too thin. Don’t get me started on how I felt about my wrinkles.
But I feel like I’m looking a lot more refined these days. Motherhood has brought out the best in me. Besides the fact that pregnancy graced me with incredibly clear, glowing skin.. It has also taught me to love a tiny little extension of myself, in turn teaching me to really love myself. Sure, I have some extra weight since giving birth that will probably never completely go away… but I finally like what I see in the mirror most days and that is a really beautiful thing.
So I spent 2017 bettering myself for not only myself but also my daughter. Eating healthy. Taking medication for anxiety so I can truly enjoy life again. Covering up stupid tattoos I thought were hilarious when I was 19. But it’s not just me. Shawn finally secured a really awesome job doing what he loves and earning six figures. We moved into a gorgeous new home in a great neighbourhood.
I truly feel that I have the best life ever. I’m so crazy in love and spend my days having fun with my family. My life is enriched with laughter and love. I have no time for the petty things ― the fighting, the drama, the bitterness that other people seem to always find themselves involved in. I could never live a life that is constantly in crisis. I am really just very happy and content where I am in life. That’s all!
