Why I’m changing my views. (My experience last week)

crown girl

Hello, My name is Chloe’ and I’m a twenty-something occasional blogger who loves makeup, coffee and posting to Instagram. aha.

But really I have not posted in a long time. And so It’s almost as if I’m reintroducing myself with my writing. Which I don’t mind at all, Because I want revamp some things anyway, plus start a new series on my page about knowing your worth, self confidence and etc.  Because frankly, these are things I’m going through right now and have passionate about for a long time. I’ve wanted to do a series like that ever since I started my blog.

And what better timing than now, when this is something I’m dealing with right now  and maybe others are too.

I’m no expert on all this. Clearly.  But ever since last week I’m sure I need to go ahead and do it. So now on to the post! Let’s Think of it as catching up with an old friend over coffee. You don’t really know them personally anymore and maybe it’s a little weird at first. But by the end of it, you you made a connection again and caught up with what is going on.   ( That may not happen all the time) lol. But hopefully, that is not the case here.

So Let’s have a chat, shall we? 

I spent 3 days at a women’s conference. And yes that might seem crazy to spend that long surrounded by so many women lol. JK.

And that it might get crazy and dramatic… well it does get crazy! Crazy for Jesus. But no drama and a lots of fun! I had early mornings , late nights and lost my voice. But wouldn’t trade it for anywhere else last week. We don’t believe in women just sitting down or being in back helping at church. We have fire female preachers on the platform!

But some things I learned along the way during this conference really changed my views on certain things.

The first thing 

You are worth a lot more than you think or know.

It’s crazy that I have been wanting to do series that relates to this and what I heard really aligned with that and made me realize things I needed to know before I did this on my blog.

rubies

If you are a guy reading this you are precious in Gods eyes too lol. But this was a women’s event sooo sorry not sorry! Ha! But I 100% agree with this verse! You really are more precious than anything the world has to offer. And when you know that you hold your head a little higher, you confidence boosts more and you got a smile on your face. (most days) Doesn’t mean life is perfect. But again most days… that is what I try to strive for.

Another thing

How I view what people think of me. Mostly girls.

You know I haven’t had this problem since my early teen years. But it has some how made a full circle in my young adults years.

But something I learned again last week was “Not everyone is going to like you” As amazing or nice as you may be. lol. But still! It happens. And the guest speaker said “Its ok if everyone doesn’t like me, I know how God views me! He loves me, I’m more precious than rubies!”

And you know what , maybe they are dealing with their own issues or insecurities. And that is ok. It probably has nothing to do with you.  If you think someone doesn’t like you pray about it and move on! I’ve learned you can’t reach everybody and you can’t be close with everybody either. But for some odd reason I got these Ideas in my head that maybe I’m not likable? Maybe I’m not the person people want to go talk to?  I’ll never be as out going as I want to be with people?

I know those are lies and my own self doubt that still tries to back sometimes. And changing that thinking!

Last Thing

confidence

Love that.

I Have a lot more I can say about this subject and stories I can give.  (And I will)

But that is for my other posts to come. 😀

But to close this I will say how I learned how to overcome it. Jesus. Having that time in the morning to myself spiritually. To read my bible and get that encouragement and strength in God’s word. Since last week that really pushed me to make more time for that and realize how much it’s needed.

Also working on myself in general is what has gained that new found confidence as well. And I will be talking more about that process as well.

“Know your worth” is what the series will be called. So be looking for when I post them! I Don’t have a set schedule for it (yet). But blogging rule 101 it’s good to have those set posting times.  So that is why you should follow me on  my blog’s Instagram page

I also love following other bloggers and people who follow my blog back! So Give it a follow to see what I’m up to and my blog’s updates. If you want to follow me through wordpress as well give a follow here too!

I’m excited for this writing direction on page and leave a comment of what you think.  I love connecting!

Always look inside

Why my mind is open going into 2018

img_6134 I never really go into things with an open mind. I’m such a realist most of time. I mean I predicted my family’s entire day on Christmas when they already had the whole agenda planned. I saw the reality of the family lunch going to turn into a Christmas dinner and so on haha. I tend to look at the reality. But of course, there has been other times I closed myself off to the truth in other situations and then later saw the reality of it. (Hence my last relationship.) Too far? Well, its the truth ha. I mean that happens at some point. A girl or guy being blinded by someone and they either follow blindly or they finally see, They learn and move on or unfortunately go right back to the same thing.

But this next year really has me thinking. I’m Excited about it, about new experiences, trips, and career path. But at the same time, I also don’t know what to think either. That is normal right? I mean we can’t know everything that is to come and of course, I trust God for the best year of growth and get things going in my life. But as far as relationships choosing right schools choosing the next job move etc. I have an open mind about it all. Maybe because I have an amazing helper to guide me through.

If you scroll down in my blog you will find one that is titled “What I learned about taking chances in life”  or something like that. It would be embarrassing to forget my own post. But if I’m being honest I forgot about a couple posts I first wrote on this blog cause even though its only been 4 months since I made my blog site I didn’t care at all how good the content was or how it looked haha.

It’s like looking back at my pics of when I first did winged eyeliner (yikes). But I was pretty decent within a few months of practice after. Not a makeup artist level, but decent. Catch my drift? I feel the same with my writing and blogging. But I say in the blog post that last year my resolution was to “Take more chances” for that year. And boy did I deliver! So this coming year speak out what you want and expect carefully. That is why this year I am going in with an open mind. The only thing I’m claiming is what God has already planned and will direct me in. But I just have to make the first move then he will move as well.

Maybe that looks different for you, but words are powerful. Don’t just shout anything out, Don’t just post “new year new me.” How is it going to be a new year? How is it going to be a new you?

Refresh your mind and leave it open to new things and change in your life. Whether its diet, exercise, learning an instrument, traveling or finding love.

Did I cover the most common resolutions yet? I think so.

So I am going to go back to work tomorrow after being on winter vacation, I am going to keep my mind open and my spirit sensitive this coming year. There will be times I mess up, I will also learn and grow as well. And that is something I can confidently say will happen in 2018! 😉 No resolution needed!

Enjoy the last few days of 2017!

❤ Chloe’
