Your authentic self. Learning something about my authentic self. The person who I am, who I wanna be, whom I love. When I became a mom, I had more important things to be concerned about than impressing the world around me. I use to want to impress people when I was younger, I wanted to impress people with my clothes, my body, my hair, my brains, etc. etc. But all that started to fall off me 3 years ago. It created space for God to start showing me "who I really am". I'm like "Hey, I'm kinda cool.". "I like this woman a lot more, than the other woman." Now I'm even able to shop with a knowledge of who I really am instead of just worrying about how I want to look. I just want to look like me. My hair is a little past my shoulder, straight, shiny, black; I have on comfy, fitting, sweat pants that stop at the ankle, a comfy long white button up shirt and some white socks. That describes me. I seem to have this vision of myself as this rugged sexy type. Long hair, comfy clothes, cute boots, and riding horses. This is how I always view myself now for some reason, go figure. So I just go with that. It's funny because my husband seems to always compliment me when I dress myself according to that vision I have of myself; and he knows nothing about it because I haven't told him. Yes, I do believe you are most beautiful when you are being true to who you are.
Side Bar - I just bought this little bohemian style dress below. Love it! Sexy, comfy, and I can wear it to the playground with my daughter. I do love the bohemian look.
