Connect With Your Inner Beauty

When I was younger, I couldn't see myself as beautiful. I'd look at myself in the mirror and think, "Decent, maybe. But beautiful? No." As I've grown older, God's shown me it's not what's on the outside that counts - it's what's in your heart.

Here are five tips for connecting with your inner beauty.


1. Start with a positive outlook

Looking in the mirror each morning and telling yourself - out loud - "I am beautiful. I am talented, kind and funny. I am awesome." starts your day with a positive outlook. This, in turn, shines the rest of your day with positivity as well.

2. Maintain the balance

There are two extremes you can fall into when trying to recognize your inner beauty. You can fall into a web of negativity, or you could end up working your way into an overly optimistic frenzy. Refrain from overworking yourself. Know your limitations and gently push yourself.

3. Set goals you can accomplish

Set goals for yourself and accomplish them with confidence. Whether it be working on your self confidence or building a healthier lifestyle for yourself, push yourself to make goals that stretch you, but don't overwork you.

4. Bring yourself down to earth

Be proud of who you are. But remember, no one is perfect - there is no such thing as perfection. Don't look at magazines and compare yourself to the images you see. Don't mimic the lifestyle of the model you see on the cover. They Photoshop all of those images into "perfect" humans, and having that as a goal... Well, such a thing is quite unattainable.

5. Love who you are

Love you no matter what. Be thankful for who you are, and what you see. Love yourself. Write a love letter, deal with your inner critics, take that first step. Whatever helps you grow to achieve your goals.

What do you do to recognize your inner beauty?

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

January 2018

If you are reading this, that means that the first month of 2018 is over. Already the time escapes me! But I am not phased - I'm actually really happy. January was a month of experimenting, working, and the start of school. I have been all over the place, in a good way. I'm starting to love this whole figuring out what to do with my time thing. It's a scary and exciting journey, all in one.

Let's jump in, shall we?


This month's goals:Reach 100 followers on the Miraculous Ladybug Amino app [COMPLETE]Create an email opt-in [NOPE]Outline The Visionaries Book 3 [COMPLETE - aha, sorta]Determine the plot of The Visionaries Book 1 [SOMEWHAT - as in not really]Start Spring Semester [COMPLETE]
4/5 isn't bad, huh? Especially since school has been the focus for more than half the month. :)

Daily habits:Exercise - I've gotten into the routine lately of taking at least 5 minutes to do something, whether that be focusing on my arms with a few push-ups or squatting. This…
