Again I am late with the Six Take post but I have to be honest… I have been debating with myself whether or not I will continue to blog. I have been getting hit with some hater-ade lately and I just am to stressed and tired to keep dealing with it all. I just want to rest. And just surround myself with people I love and trust. But then I sat down today and I realize that this is what the “haters” want. They want me to give up and give in because at the end of the day… they want me to hate myself like they hate themselves. And you know what… I WON’T LET THEM WIN!!! So I decided to use this as my way to let people know… STOP IT!!!
Stop making people feel bad when you should be building them up. Use what your mother taught you as a child… “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. Some people can’t help themselves. Some people will make jokes when in reality they are just pretending to make light of how they really feel. I have to say… I probably was one of those people years ago. But now that I have kids and see how much these can things can break someone down… I cut that out. Here is what I say… before you say one negative thing to or about someone. Try and find 2 positives things to say instead. That is what I do. Instead of bringing attention to someone’s negative nasty attitude… I will compliment them on their outfit or hair (or both… lol). And before I know it… I don’t even think negative first… I always look for the brighter side of each person. That is a lesson I’m glad I’m learned. TRULY.
Now the outfit I picked today isn’t really one of my favorites but I LOVE these booties and this jacket. But the reason why these pictures are significant… Because I took these pictures in a busy park where everyone could see me and I was starred at. I had hubby there cheering me on and taking the pics as my support system, but I really wanted to embrace the No H8 confidence. I’m glad I did it. I feel like I made it through to the other side stronger and better…
And if you think I didn’t wear color today…never fear… I’m wearing bright purple eyeshadow that doesn’t come across in the photos… I’m still a color whore :)
What I’m Wearing Today:
Dress/Earrings: Burlington Coat Factory
