While scrolling through old photos on Facebook last night, I came across this one.
It took me back to a proud moment where I was reading a speech at my best friends wedding reception 👰. I remember the laughter we had, the tearful moments and the happy moments.... but then my 😃 started to turn into a 😞 because I remembered how I felt underneath the dress 👗 the hair and the makeup 💄
I felt uncomfortable in my own skin, I felt like I had let myself go and I felt like the “ugly duckling” of the group... while masking it all with a smile.
Over the years I have learned to mask my true emotions with McDonalds 🍔 🍟 chips,chocolate 🍫 and really any other food that would “make me feel better”. It’s only been the last year that I’ve began to realize that I have to face my insecurities and properly deal with them.
I’ve grown in so many ways since this time. I’m stronger 💪🏻, I’m healthier 🥗, and I’m happier 😃. #motivationmonday#growth#past#april2015#dontquit#findyourworth#findyourhappiness#facethefears#digdeep
After 2 and half years I finally got around to displaying our wedding vows with these beautiful pressed glass frames. I thought about having them hand lettered but decided it would more special to use the “originals” mine handwritten and a little messy and John’s all neatly typed up. Looking back, I’m so glad we decided to write our own. It’s sweet to have them hanging up in our house ❤️ .
Look at the poor iron, it's covered in rust
Once strong is now becoming dust
Take it out or risk the collapse
It shall shatter with the sound of claps
It cannot work it no longer runs
It is an old engine that weighs in tonnes
Heavy is the burden you cannot carry
It's an unfortunate blow you have to parry
Take out the parts you do not need
It shall rot and severely bleed
It's a warning you must heed
Deconstruct is the only deed
The parts are now in place
Let's end this race
Slow down the pace
Take a moment to tie your lace
Behold! The spectacle is now complete
The foundation is unshakable, so concrete
Take care of this, you must
Or it shall again turn into dust
