So many hard things have been happening in my family in the past two weeks, it could be so easy to dwell on the negative, especially given the time of year. I don't really want to get into it all because I think it's important to stay positive. So instead of saying what makes me feel confident from my outfit, I am going to tell you the blessings in my life that keep me feeling confident and positive. 

1. My husband-I don't know where I would be without him. He has been incredible. I can't even tell you.

2. My daughter-Her hugs and kisses mean the world to me and I just can't get enough. She is growing into such a sensitive and caring little girl and she makes me so proud.

3. My parents-They are supportive and lend a listening ear no matter when I need it.

4. My family-My sister-in-law and brother-in-law sending flowers, calling to check up, in-laws calling. I am such a lucky girl to have so many amazing people in my life.

4. My job- I love working with children and my co-workers can turn even stressful and ridiculous situations into laughter.

5. My house-I love our little cozy house especially this time of year. A fire in our fire place can put you in a good mood no matter what. 

6. The reminder that this too shall pass. Whenever I am going through something difficult I always remind myself that it's temporary. 

7. A wonderful hobby full of supportive women that lift each other up.
