If I ever let my head down, it will only be to admire my shoes.

I remember running around the house pretending to be a princess from teddy-land, sprinkling my glitter on all my bears so they can be happy and protect me from my big bad brother. My Dad routinely told me that I’m beautiful and my smile made him smile. He protected me from harm and focused on loving life, but at one point it wasn’t enough to combat the negativity from others. I was too fat or too skinny. My hair, outfit, makeup, was judged and depicted to every last drop. I was never enough. Emotionally, I’ve let a relationship drain me by giving him power to steal my inner peace. I’ve felt alone and broken. I didn’t smile enough, constant anxiety, and spiraled downwards. I thought I hid my emotions well, but people saw it in my eyes. My smile didn’t give Dad good spirits, instead concern. I stressed in proving myself to others that I lost myself by letting their opinions dictate my life.

The moment you decide to be yourself, your inner beauty will resonate. Instead of focusing on imperfections; focus on the bigger picture – experiencing life! I started to pick off every negative aspect that covered up who I once knew because I missed the girl who saw possibilities everywhere, that appreciated happiness when she gave to others, who never set limits and never gave up. Thanks to life awakening experiences and encouragement from a handful of people, I adjusted my sails. I replaced negative thoughts with positive ones, let go to toxic people, and restored my focus on inspiring others. Life is good and better than ever – because I have the power to make it so.

To my lovely ladies: ignore anyone who tries to define you or give limitations in your life. Nothing holds you back more than your own insecurities. You’re beautiful so practice to love yourself more, and dream big through positivity. I’m here to inspire you, one red heel at a time 💗 By the way, I want to mention that I whole heartedly enjoy responding to email messages from you all in Asia. It warms my heart to know that I can encourage and inspire someone across the world from me, and for that I thank you. You give my life a meaning 🙂

Love, Ter

The bipolar weather of Texas is nothing new; I was soaking in the sun all day yesterday and now I’m literally soaking in water. Excuse my feminine philosophy:

When it rains, wear platforms.

I woke up early this morning to put together some fun gifts for the breast cancer event at LF today.

Happy Sunday friends. It’s my last day in Orlando for the AFR Yellow Ribbon event. I had an amazing experience learning about deployment; how to cope, how to deal, who can help, benefits, where to find support etc. Even though I am not being the one deployed, it’s tough on loved ones back at home who have to take on the role of the person leaving. We are left with our significant others’ responsibilities and it’s a hard job to take on. I’ll save the rest of my thoughts for a ramblings/personal post 🙂

Here is what I wore today (I took my sweater off because it was pretty sunny out) : I love the little details on this white dress I got from LF. Yes, it’s the first of Fall and I wore white 🙂
