3 Ways to Embrace Your Flaws

Beauty/ Lifestyle
Technically the summer is behind us, although it looks like the South missed the memo because temps are still unbearably high here. Yesterday it was 98°, I was only outside a few minutes before I started sweating, yuck. I am sooooo ready for the cooler fall temps to roll in.

Honestly, I was only wearing about 20% of the things I owned; the rest was just sitting in closets taking up space. When I took an honest look at why I wasn’t wearing these things, there wasn’t a real reason. I mean sure we all probably have a few things we are saving for an individual occasion and the I’ll wear this when I loose 10 lbs section, but that still didn’t explain it. A lot of my clothes I just didn’t feel okay wearing because I picked apart all the flaws in my body and convinced myself that I couldn’t wear them yet.
