Linking Up!!!!!!!!

Well hello there bloggers!! I have been MIA lately - just haven't had much to talk about and been kind of in a funky mood - but I am here today to link up with one of my most favorite bloggers, Erin @ Homemade Happenings, love her, so I had to join in on this link, even though it's gonna be a hard one for me!

I am much like Erin in that I do not think I am a beautiful woman physically, at all. But I do think I have a lot to offer as a person, no matter who thinks differently.  I love this link up because in today's world beauty has turned into something that is just so wrong and making people more miserable each day because they feel like they cannot live up to the standards. People are afraid to be themselves for fear of rejection. Oh wait, that's just me?!? ... Oh well, I hope you know what I mean. When I think of beauty I don't think of just physical appearance, I think of confidence and pride - someone who is comfortable in their own skin and isn't afraid to be who they are even if that means someone else may not like them - Love me or hate me, this is who I am, if you don't like it - see ya! =) That's not to say I like arrogance though - you still have to be a kind hearted person and treat other's the same way you would like to be treated.
Ok, I so got off on a tangent there. Here are the things I find beautiful about myself - ughhhhhhhhh this is hard!!
1. I truly am a kind hearted person. Some people say I am kind to a fault though and let people take advantage of me. The truth is I would rather be known for being a push-over than for being a bitch. You catch more flie's with honey than with vinegar - you know what I'm sayin??? I just like to see the best in people and I am always willing to help whenever I can.
2. I am a great momma. I take care of my boys and I protect them like the best Momma Bear out there. Don't mess with my children or that kind heart will turn to steel in a heart beat! I live for my kids, yes I take time for myself too, but my kids are my life and I would do anything for them and I thank God for blessing me with them each day!
3. Ok since beauty is often thought of as something physical I will say a few things I actually do like - I love my olive skin, I have always got compliments on my pretty skin and how people wish they were as naturally "tan" as I am. The other is my hair. I have thick, dark hair and every time I get my hair cut the stylist says - your hair is so healthy and pretty, don't dye it!! ha ha!! I have been stopped in stores and asked what products I used on my hair - honestly I don't use anything special at all - I use Perts Plus shampoo and conditioner in one! ha ha ha! No beauty secrets here, just lucky I guess.
Ok, so there you have it. Now tell me what is your true beauty?!?!
