Why I started a fashion blog

10:46 PM

The primary topics for this blog were travel and electronic scrapbook my life, so why am I adding a fashion component? I'm not doing this because I think I have great style. I'm not doing this to show off anything. I know that I am far from being the most fashionable person. Like really, really far. I do not have the body of a fashion model either. I would have to grow at least nine inches and lose a lot of weight. I know that I have a million flaws. You don't have to remind me. I have struggled with image/self esteem issues for many years. I never thought I was pretty enough or skinny enough to wear certain clothes. 
Four years ago, I set my mind to return back to my college skinny days and I got very close but I was not satisfied. I felt like I had to lose more weight. This negative viewpoint eventually led me to gain a lot of weight, lose my slowly growing abs, and lose the little confidence I had about two years ago. Luckily I had a good friend show me scripture about how to love my body for what it is - a temple and meant for God's glory. I learned something very important. When I had a smaller waist - I wasn't content and when I had a bigger waist, I wasn't content either. I realized that being content no matter the size of your waist is the most important. 
Through prayer and reading scripture, I also gained a new perspective. God is sovereign over everything even the size of my waist and that ultimately complaining about my waist size is complaining to Him. I don't want to do that. I also learned the power we have in what we say and I am learning to speak more positively and with more gratitude.
Over the years, I was inspired and encouraged by other fashion bloggers who were not size double zero wearing what they wanted with confidence. 
I started a fashion blog to document my growth both internally and externally, photograph the things I like,  express my gratitude, and hopefully inspire others to love themselves in the same way God loves us. God created each one of us. The creator of the mountains, the stars, the seas, and so many other beautiful things. How could a loving and perfect Creator create something ugly? He didn't. We were beautifully made. 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading.
