Shine Bright, Darling

June 21, 2018
The strongest action for a woman is to love herself, be herself + shine amongst those who never believed she could.

I live in a small town. A little box in the mountains. It’s beautiful + I love it, but it’s also easy to get stuck. It’s easy to want to stay in your comfort zone, keep your head down + hope something changes.

Walking around Portland yesterday changed my perspective. I love the culture. I love the freedom to express yourself. I feel free here. I wasn’t worried about trying to belong or fit in. I was just myself.

I have been on a journey of finding who Lacie is. What do I want out of this ONE life I have to live?!? Breaking out of a comfort zone to live a life I want with purpose + passion.

Ladies, I want to encourage you to be you. For the longest time, I would try to be half of someone else I thought was "popular" and then add in half of me. I know I am not the only one that has done this before, and I think social media can play a big part in morphing into what other people are passionate about. Girl, being you is such a beautiful thing. your life, passions, and purpose all add so much value to this world.  As you dive into what you want out of this life, you will be a light shining brightly.

Start writing. Start journal. Start praying for what you want.
What are the goals and dreams you have? Who is the woman you wanted to become?
Did you become her? Do you need to do a little soul searching?

It is ok to take the time you need to love the person you are today. It takes time to believe in who you are and who you can become. I can't wait to see the change and the confidence come from within.
