a confidence boost

last night my cousin kristina and i headed down to provo for utah blogger meet n' greet.

i felt a little reluctant to go since i am just barely diving into the blogging scene.
but i put on my black skinnys and went.
it was the first night i was out for myself in a long time so a special thanks blake for being a champ and tending the little.
we walked up and my first impression was, "oh geesh, here we go."
but i was really impressed with all the talent that filled this amazing boutique.
i met so many bloggers that i had only heard about or read about.
so many inspiring women who really try to make life beautiful and share it with others.
it was really fun.
i really learned a lot about how i want things to be.

my mom and i have regular talks about "doing" and "being".
it is kind of a thing we have.
so naturally it is always on my mind.
sometimes i can get carried away in inadequacy or self-doubt, but i really try to channel it into something productive.
after coming home last night i realized that a lot of women have the common talent of doing and being.
it could have been a night of selfish comparing.
comparing outfits, hair and makeup, success, or products.
but that feel wasn't there, for me.
i consider it a blessing.
i was really bolstered by these powerful women who have successful business' yet focus on their family and life happenings first.
so here i am listening to feist radio on pandora feeling ready to conquer all the loose ends.
i can do hard things.
