No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. —Eleanor Roosevelt
Remember that quote from Princess Diaries way back in the day—that totally was the movie of my awkward middle school days, but ever since that quote has been one of my absolute favorites.
In a creative, entrepreneurial world that I feel saturates my life and probably many of yours it is so easy to fall into the trap of feeling inferior—my photos aren’t good enough, my recipes aren’t tasty enough, my Instagram didn’t get enough likes, my gym clothes aren’t fashionable enough.
But the funny thing is that YOU, your personality, your charm, your talents, are enough! We need all different sorts of folks in this world to make it fabulous!
So keep being you!
I was reminded of this while at lunch with one of my favorite creative friends, Caitlin (who took these fabulous photos and is just so talented!!). We were chatting about how difficult it is not to feel inferior and not to spiral downward into that trap of comparison.
Don’t be afraid to create your own style, branch out and just be you!
For some reason dresses that twirl always remind me of this, maybe it is the freeing, totally feminine aspect of twirling dresses that reminds me that no matter what being you is all that matters! And by the way, this dress is a dream, perfect for lunch or a business meeting!
So here’s to dresses that twirl and being ME!
