Earlier this month my little sister turned 13. Part of the present I gave her was some bright red lipstick. On the card I said it was for her to wear when she was having "one of those days" because every woman should have a lipstick that makes them feel like they can take on the world. A few days ago, my mother texted me with the most brilliant idea ever that I have decided to turn into a guest post feature on this here site (lots of credit and virtual high fives to my mom for thinking of this). We are going to call it "Read My Lips" and it will spotlight different bloggers that I want to learn more about. Each lovely lady will send me photos of herself in her shade of lipstick and three ways she draws confidence in her life. I am really excited to get to know some of the beautiful women I have come to admire by following their blogs. I hope it is something you readers will enjoy as well. Naturally I will start this feature off with my own answers.
1. I find confidence in laughter and lightheartedness.
2. I find confidence in knowing that you don't have to be what people assume you are.
3. I find confidence in knowing where I came from, physically and spiritually.
My color is a very bold red. For me, being bold is being brave enough to be yourself. Sometimes, in my case, being myself is being quiet. It comes off as shy but that is generally not the case. When I have something to say, you will hear it. When I was younger I felt the need to apologize for being quiet, but we don't need to apologize for things like that. I feel driven to be exactly what I was created to be. I hope my color choice reflects that.
