It’s Easy Being Green

TGIF all!

I needed to write this post as I’ve been going through some personal stuff lately.  I’ve been struggling with my self confidence and feeling good about my body.  For the past couple of days I’ve fallen back into old behavior of comparing myself to bloggers who are more successful than me.  Honestly this has been a huge struggle for me because I easily fall into the trap of thinking others have it easier than I do.  I found myself again being envious of others who I perceive as having the “perfect life, clothes, relationships..etc”.   Once I started down this road, instantly everything in my life became a disappointment and it has snowballed into a full on funk.  Knowing I was headed down a slippery slope, I reached out  Jeniese and my BFF Shoshanna for a dose of insightful real talk.   Their judgment free support is exactly what I needed to help me start to emerge from my funk.  I’m not 100% right now but I’m confident I will get through this rough patch.   I know I am blessed and have wonderfully positive things going on in my life.  Are there things in my life that need to change? Absolutely but I know with some professional help (because lets face it, sometimes talking to your girls just isn’t enough), support of my friends and my faith, I can make that change.

Have a wonderful day!

    So brave of you to share. I believe we all have those periods of time where we are feeling like something in us is lacking. Hope you escape that funk soon. I enjoy reading your posts! You are wonderfully and fearfully made!

    What’s funny is that, when I opened this post, I had the thought, “Man, she’s been killing it with stylish, comfortable looks this summer, I bet I’ll get some inspiration from her.” Which goes to show, even when you feel like you’re less than, you’re actually inspiring people! Keep your head up. xo

    Hey, Georgette, girl! You are looking amazing – in fact, this stands out as one of my top thee favourite wardrobes that you have put together! I’m loving the pop of colour in the earrings, brought out by the handbag (see, you DO change your handbag up occasionally) and the shoes tie it all in… and of course, you’re never fully dressed without a smile – and your smile is simply gorgeous. It lights up the whole photo. Go easy on yourself, my friend. You are a wonderfully inspiring and amazing woman, who is unstoppable!

    We as humans are so powerful, our words, thoughts and self talk can be force to be reckon with when we use them for good. They can also can be a wrecking ball if gone unchecked in other direction. Just know in the middle of the self doubt, you are STILL every good thing you wish for everyone else and awesome in all that you do.

      Thank you so much. You are so right about the power of words. Words are much more stronger than people think!

    Thank you for sharing. I’m glad you had someone you could reach out to during this time. Because of you and your blog I was encouraged to wear my sexy little swimsuit☺ That’s been a few years ago and I’ve been a follower ever since. Know that you are having a positive impact on others. My prayers go out to you and I hope you’re doing better real soon!

    Thanks for sharing so honestly. I just started following you recently and this post really spoke to me. I’ve been in a similar funk lately and it’s heartening to hear that even someone as fabulous as yourself has times of self-doubt.

      Thank you so much. I’m happy my post spoke to you and I hope you get clear of your funk soon. Trust me, you are not alone.

    I want you to know that I admire you, your natural beauty and great sense of style, and your realness – it takes guts to admit what you’re talking about here, more than anything, admit to ourselves! Most people never admit such things to themselves! Let alone to a friend, and let alone to the whole world. You are unique, you must know it! I always admire your style, and this outfit is just wonderful, makes me want to wear a maxi dress right now! And you ARE a successful blogger. It’s great that you want more – it stimulates you to grow. Build on your uniqueness, your realness, and you will do just fine, Georgette!

      Thank you so much for your comment. I always try to be transparent with my readers because I don’t want to be fake. I have problems and issues just like everyone else.

    We all have those times when we feel a little down for whatever reason. Add my voice to the chorus of those who have been inspired by you! And this outfit – GIRL. You brought it! Thank you for your candor but also for your beautiful example. Be blessed.

    We all go through that at one time or several. Having friends that help you is one of the most important things to have, plus your online support. Love you!
