What I Wear-I Love...

I've been wondering lately why it's so hard for us to praise ourselves! God made us so amazingly intricate, yet we're constantly putting His creation (us) down. Our hair isn't straight enough, our eyes aren't blue enough, we don't have model looks or milky complexions. But guess what? We each have something about us that makes us uniquely beautiful. I'm not saying we should run around talking about how wonderful we are, or being arrogant every time we look in the mirror! Just appreciating the fact that God made a beautiful creation when He thought you up. I don't imagine it could feel very good for God to constantly hear His creation criticizing itself! 



I'm Wearing: Cropped Black Shrug-Forever 21 ($7), Red Shirt-Forever 21 ($2), Blue Jean Skirt-Thirfted ($3.99), Scarf-Claire's ($4) Boots-Vanity ($10)
So instead I have a challenge-I double dog dare you to leave a comment with two things you love about yourself physically and two things you love about yourself in terms of character traits-go ahead! 

Here I go: I love my hair and dark eye lashes. I also love that I'm loyal and easy going. 

"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." Psalm 139:13-16

  1. I love your boots and long socks so cute! and the bright top is such a pretty contrast to the usual winter dreariness. ok i'm going to do your challenge.
    a.) i like my eyelashes and b.) i like how my skintone is darker and my complexion is blemish free, besides a couple freckles which i love.
    c.) i like the way i'm not easily affected by others opinions about me. whether it be good or bad. d.) i like that im naturally more organized and i'm always looking for way to improve things. thats the typical INTJ for ya i guess. haha. i hope i dont sound like im being arrogant though. xx

  2. Very well said!

    Two things I love about myself physically are my eyes and my ears(yup lol). Two things I like about myself in terms of my character are, I am kind and non-judgmental. Well, that was fun!!! :)

    Love the boots! I grabbed your button. :)

  3. Cute! I love the color combination!
    Hmm...it's a bit hard to come up with things I like about myself when I'm all achy from this silly cold, but I like my eyes and my hair (haha, I think that's what you said too!) and I'm thankful for an intelligent mind and the ability to listen (I almost said a sympathetic nature, but I tend to be a cynic, soooo that's something I have to work on).

    Hope you're having a great week!

  4. Cute outfit - love the scarf. =)
    And I totally agree with you. We should praise ourselves for HIS pleasure and benefit (as well as ourselves). Because if we do it with the right motives then we're bringing glory to Him instead of to ourselves. =) I would say the two things I love about my physical looks are my long hair and my smooth skin. For my character traits I love that I'm joyful and encouraging. Lol, it feels weird to be saying that I love those things about me, but it also feels really good. =) Thanks for the challenge!

  6. I think this is one of my favorite outfits on you. Love the scarf. Yes, you are right. I am having a hard time thinking what I like about myself. I will say that I like my eybrows and my hair, and I am organized and a loving mommy.

  7. I totally agree, we shouldn't be aggrogant, but Psalms 139:14 says we're farefullyAnd wonderfully made :-)
    By the way are you still doing that blog interview thing you talked about last year?

  8. Gah! What a challenge... :-P Erm... I like the eyes and hair color God gave me. :-) I like that He gave me a sense of the need to encourage others and a strong desire for what is fair, right, and just.

    Really cute outfit, by the way! Also, thank you for your comment. If not in this life, maybe in heaven we can sit down over a cup of coffee and chat. ;-)

    God bless!

    That's definitly a tough challenge...I think I like my eyes (they're brown with touches of green) and my legs...And I'm organized and have a good sense of humour (except when I'm tired ! ;-))
    Have a blessed day

  10. Definitely something to think about, Natasha. For me, I love my hair,(except when it's being difficult:). I couldn't imagine having short hair! I think that my hair is a wonderful feminine attribute, and I'm so thankful for it! I also love my eyes. They are green/brown/grayish. Very descriptive, I know:D Personality wise, I love that I am an encourager and I love to give gifts to people.
    Have a great day!

  11. this was such a nice post to see, and you're so right, we really do focus on our flaws more than our qualities. it's probably so we can keep improving, but it's also hurtful. and i think you have lovely eyelashes and a fun sense of style :D

  12. I love my eyes. The are a very unusual color, but pretty. I get compliments on them a lot. I also love my freckles. ;) This is a GREAT post. It feels so good to say good things about yourself without people thinking your being arrogant.

    Two things... my brown curls and body. I love how I'm laid back and to be able to think when troubles come.

  14. Hi Natasha! Loved this post--it's so true that we tend to put ourselves down too often. It's difficult, too, because confidence can SO easily be mistaken for arrogance (I learned that the sad way.) Hmmm...well, I love my hourglass figure, and I'm not sure if this counts as physical, and I hate praising myself about it, but I can SING. There, I said it :) As far as personality goes, I've been told that I'm very inclusive with my junior high small group girls, which just melts my heart because I was the outcast result of leadership favoritism in youth group. So I definitely love that I've achieved that. I also love that I'm future-thinking and make choices with the future in mind instead of just the temporary satisfaction of here and now.
    Sorry for the novel, hope you are doing well!
    Blessings,
    Hannah =)
