You gain strength, courage, and confidence in every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along” – Eleanor Roosevelt
I chose this quote by Eleanor Roosevelt because it matches up to the life I am living. I have been through so much in the past that the strength and courage that I have now has made me such a confident woman not just in the way I look but the way that I feel and the way that I act. I have been through hell and back, and I can look at fear and face it head on.
By the grace of God, I am alive and well. I encountered so many close calls in my past and also most recently, but I have faith and confidence in my Lord that he is not done with me yet. My purpose on earth, I have yet to fulfill, and I have the duty to perform it for him. Having confidence in yourself is a great quality to have, but it is an even powerful and amazing feeling to have the confidence to know that everything that happens, to you and in your life, is controlled by our Lord Jesus Christ. I speak highly about our Lord because I have been through enough to see that he is real. I know that not everyone feels the same way as I do, but I am a strong believer because he has saved me in more ways than one.
When you have lived through cancer, and a near death experience like I have, you learn to appreciate life itself and the little things, and this is the message I am trying to spread. Whether you believe in God or not, everyone should have confidence in yourself, fear nothing, and have the courage to rise to the top and not allow anyone or anything to hold you back.
Getting back to this outfit. I love it because it has a sexy feel to it because it shows off my shoulders but yet a conservative and cute look. No matter what I am wearing, I am confident and this top makes me feel good.
This pink off the shoulder top is the cutest top, and it is the first off the shoulder top I have. I was a bit hesitant to get an off the shoulder top because it is definitely out of my comfort zone as far as style. After putting it on and pairing it up with the right accessories, I was glad I got it. This top has a super soft feel to it and is comfortable. The body is 100% polyester; the trim is 70% silk and 30% polyester. You can wear it with denim jeans (like I have), white jeans or even a skirt. Whatever you decide to wear it with, it is sure to turn heads. The color is a light mauve or also considered as rose. It is true to size, so you do not have to order up or down. I provided a link for this great company below. They even have a KBB Sylebox which is great because there are some goodies that you will love. It is perfect for gift giving or just get one for yourself! Here is a picture of the KBB Stylebox that I received. It was so pretty that I had to take a picture of it.
Check out what they have, I am sure you will find more than one item that will catch your eye! ————-> Knitted Belle Boutique
