I’m "too" _____but that’s what’s needed!

Posted by Allyson Hilliard on

Do you ever think... I’m too loud or I’m too bossy or I’m too add whatever negative characteristic you can think of about yourself.

Well, you are not alone. Thoughts like that run through my mind constantly. For a long time I tried to change. I tired to be less of what is characteristically me. I thought....let me be quieter or let me stop taking the lead. But it never worked.

No Apologies Tee

I would always revert back to being me. Then I become frustrated.

 It was frustrating because I was trying to make myself something that I’m not. I was going against my nature.

Against my DNA. Against what God has made me to be.

He needs you to be exactly how he made you. All of the personality traits, the good ones and the bad ones, are vital to fulfill your assignments while on this earth.

Just think what would happen if a lion thought...My roar is too loud and my bite is too strong, I’m going to stop that. You think the lion would survive. Nope, then the jungle would be overridden by gazelles.

Or what about the elephant... if it said... I am way too fat. I’m going to lose weight. That elephant would stand no chance in the wild. Then what would those beautiful safari pictures look like.

God purposefully made you. Like ingredients in a cake. You leave one out and you won’t have a delicious cake to eat.

I have realized, when I leave out my bossy not only am I frustrated but I can’t do what I’m here for. And that would be a waste of a good life.

The moral of the story embrace your traits good, bad and indifferent because you are a perfect design.

Love hat, however a bit hard to read, again love the hat

Joggers

I got home from a week of chaos in Houston to find my package on my door step. The joggers are so comfortable. I absolutely love the fit and the comfort. They are lined so I can wear them in the fall. Cannot express how much I love your clothing.

My New Go to-Well Made Notebook!

I am a notebook SNOB and I'm picky about what kinds of notebooks I write in and I love this notebook. Plenty of pages to write my reflections. I'll be back to grab a few more in different colors as gifts.

So Cute, So Me!

OMG! I LOVE this sweatshirt. It's so cute and so me. I love the embroidery detail. It's giving Bougie Doll, that I can dress up or down. I got the one in pink but will likely get another one in black and white, so many chic things I can do with this one. It's unique, it's fun. I'm obsessed!

Bougie Love

Absolutely subscribe to the sentiment!!!! Love it
