I Am Enough.

Hello Darling Hearts!

This is insane. This is almost impossible.

But it happened.

And I have to share it with you.

Because last night I came to the greatest realization I’ve had in life so far.

I finally said it. I finally believed it.

I Am Enough.

I felt like I was on top of the world.

I said goodbye to Lauren the negative self critic.

Because I realized that she was my worst bully.

She hurt me more than anyone else ever has.

I said things to myself that I would never, in my cruelest moments, say to someone else.

But I took it as if I deserved it.

As if I deserved hate.

And you know what?

I don’t.

There is enough hate in this world already. There are enough people to hate me. Why be one of my own enemies.

Not anymore.

Never again.Read More »

Beautifully Imperfect?

Hello Gorgeous Soul!

A year ago, if you told me that I would participate in a tag called #ImperfectlyMeVG , I would have laughed.

Me? Share my imperfections? The things that I am self conscious about? Along with a picture of myself?

Yeah right!

But things are starting to change.

And I’m starting to realize that those imperfections? They make me who I am.

They don’t have the power to take away anything from me, unless I give that power over to them by feeling self conscious.

We are all beautiful.

Not despite our imperfections, but sometimes because of them.

They add to who we are.

Who was it who decided that they were “imperfections” anyway?

Society. Society and its dirty little judgmental mind.

 They’ve created this ideal of “perfection”. And it is impossible to obtain.

They created the “ideal woman”.

She doesn’t exist. She never has and never will.

So where did this idea come from?

It was created.

And, it was created solely for the purpose of putting you down and making you feel inferior.Read More »

False Positive Body Image

Hello Darling Hearts,

Let’s just get one thing clear, right here from the start.

YouAreBeautiful

Completely and totally amazingly beautiful.

Body image is something that has been around for centuries.

Women have almost always been expected to look a certain way, otherwise they are deemed unattractive.

I believe that we are in the worst time for body image in the history of mankind.

Why are we, in my opinion, living in the worst time for body image?Read More »

Hello New Year!

Hello Darling Hearts!

It’s a brand new year and I’m so glad to be sharing it with you!

After going through the amazing Susannah Conway’s Find Your Word for 2015: A Free Five-Day Email Class, I have found my word for this year.

My word is:

Why believe?

Because this is the year I start to believe that my dreams can become my reality.

Last year I started the process of believing in myself, (still a work in progress), and now I am ready to move forward a bit more.

Actually, a lot more. I have so many goals to accomplish this year.

I have things I want to do, and for the first time, I am believing that I can do them!

My goals might seem a bit daunting to me right now. And, who knows, I might not get them all accomplished this year. But who cares? I started. And I’ll keep on going.

I’m not going to finish this race on my own time. I accept that. I don’t have control over everything and I’m just going to have to live with it.

But I do have control over whether or not I try. And I’m going to do it.

And I will finish the race. 

Not when I think I should. But when I need to. Not when my mind thinks I need to. But when God knows I need to.

Some of my life goals for this year are:

Be MYSELF in everything I do, despite what others may think of me.


Be less self conscious when it comes to pictures of myself.


Art journal more.


Fill out my Gratitude journal (gift from Granny) completely.


Take more beautiful photographs, just because.


Some of my business goals for this year are:


Make YouTube videos such as vlogs/challenges/etc.


Blog/vlog *at least* once a week.


Write an eBook (maybe more than one) and offer it for sale on my blog.


Purchase better equipment to improve my blog/videos.


Add some listings to Etsy


Design my blog to look just how I want it.


Purchase a custom domain name.

Become affiliates for/collaborate with some of my favorite people/companies so that I can share the love.


Give back to spread the positivity.



While you’re reading this you’ll find me celebrating the New Year with my Star Sisters, letting go of the past and preparing for the future. I hope you’ll come back to join me on my journey.

Until then, thanks for stopping by!

Who Are You, Really?

Hello Beautiful Hearts!

Who are you, really?

Who are you?

If someone were to come up to you and ask that question, what would your answer be?

Probably your name right?

When you are asked to introduce yourself in front of a group of people you’d probably say something like,

“Hi, my name is Lucy. I’m 28 years old. I was born in Arizona.”

Or something of the sort.

But is that really who you are?

Your name was given to you. You don’t get a say in what your age is, nor where you were born.

That isn’t who you are.
