– 12 Things –

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share 12 out of many ways you can help yourself feel your best and just be confident. You are beautiful and wonderful. I hope y’all had an amazing week this past week and thank y’all so much for reading💗 

1. Smile. You are so beautiful and loved and smiling just shows happiness and ugh just smile. 

2. Walk with your head held high. Even when you’re sad, you just have to be positive. 

3. Listen to yourself. If you think you look beautiful, then show yourself off. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. 

4. Go out with friends. Go have fun and live your life.

5. LAUGH. Yes, this is a lot like smiling but when I laugh my heart is just so joyful. 

6. Do what you love. Fashion? Gym? Shopping? Go out and do it. I constantly am at the gym because it brings me comfort and I feel my best knowing I had a good workout that day.

7. Stop. Comparing. Yourself. How many times do I have to say this. There is always someone who will be better or have something you don’t have, but that will never make you less beautiful. 

8. Be Happy. 🌞

9. Clear out your clutter. If you just constantly have a negative bubble around you then no you won’t feel your best or look your best. 

10. Surround yourself with people who make you feel loved and happy. My friends are my support system, along with my family. When I feel down I can talk to them and not feel judged. 

11. Walk with a purpose. Be confident and look confident. 

12. Remember who made you. You are loved and wanted. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14

prayer 

Today’s post is going to be a little different, but with all that’s going on in today’s world I believe we need a little prayer. 

Praying is something so big and so so important in my life. It’s a way to express to God about difficult things in my life that I need a little extra help with or to have Him help someone around me a little more too. How often have you sat and prayed with someone though? Praying by yourself is different, still amazing and powerful, but have you prayed with someone? 

Praying is something so powerful so here are a few ways you can start: 

  • Set a time and place, meet with God everyday. If you think you don’t have time, you’re wrong. It take as little as 15 seconds to talk to God. 
  • Keep a prayer journal, write down your prayers of things you want to pray for. 
  • Use a devotional. These are amazing and I have several, they help you guide your reading and gives a prayer at the end. 
  • FIND A PARTNER. Someone you can trust and pray together. 
  • Don’t give up. God wants you to talk to Him, and He listens… even if it’s been awhile give Him a call. He will be right there. 

A hard thing for me is that sometimes I tend to pray for selfish things, or ask God for too much and then I don’t get it… he doesn’t give it to me. Remember that God still has a plan, and the thing you are praying for might not be set in your life. Understand that you might not know this now.. but you will understand later. ❤️

Talk to Him about anything, if you’re sad ask Him for comfort. If you’re happy, thank Him for what He is doing. Need some help, He will be there. God will listen to anything you have to say, so talk away. 

To wrap this up, know that even if it’s been years since you’ve talked to God, just talk to Him as if he was sitting right next to you. You’d be amazed at what might happen. 

A few things to pray for in today’s society:

Week 4/4: Simply You. 

Week 4/4: Simply You. 

It’s crazy to me that in life, when I was younger, I always wanted to be like someone around me. Of course every little girl wanted to be a princess or their favorite character on a movie. That’s totally normal, I loved pretending I was someone else. 

When I got older, I still pretended I was someone else.. this time it was a lot different. I wanted to be the girl in my math class who had every single pair of jeans you could ever want. I wanted to be pretty enough and get noticed. I wanted people to like me, even if they didn’t like me. If I had to be fake, wear certain products and clothes for people to like me, then you’re dang right.. I went and bought those, wore them. It amazes me that this is what every girl thought and talked about. Even about celebrities, we wanted to look like them and do what they did at such a young age. I don’t remember a time before I accepted myself that I ever said “Hannah, you are beautiful in your own way, just like ______ (whoever I thought was pretty) “, and that makes me so sick. Why didn’t I think I was pretty?

I wasn’t caring for myself and I didn’t even realize what I was doing. These past four weeks I’ve talked about everything from finding yourself and accepting that to ways to be more confident after accepting you. People might ask me why I talk and write so much about self love and the only thing I can tell them is “Look at you. Simply just look at you. You’re a masterpiece made by God who makes no mistakes. You are loved so much that he sent his OWN SON to die for you. How could you not want to talk about self love and how unique you are” 


You are so important and loved. 
You are so beautiful and smart. 

You are so kind and wonderful. 

You are simply you, and I want you to love that. Every detail on your face to that freckle on your arm. It was placed there, in that exact spot on purpose. Gosh, I could just rant on and on about it. Self love to me, is extremely important. If you don’t love yourself, how are you ever gonna love another? How are you gonna show someone that you like the way you are, you like no makeup or glam everyday? By loving yourself and showing people that you are simply you. 

You are one of a kind, and so is the person next to you. We are all made equal and we are all beautiful and smart. We need to learn that it’s okay to feel pretty or handsome. We need to teach and support each other instead of tearing each other down because God did not intend for so much hate. 

Mark 12:31 says “love your neighbor as you love yourself”

I know this week was more of a rant week, but it’s something important to me. Something I want everyone to read because you are loved and you are wanted. You are beautiful and handsome. 

God made you. You are his masterpiece.

Week 3/4: Mind Games

Week 3/4: Mind Games

Your mind is your nightmare. Well, it is for me at least. I tell myself things everyday, whether that’s good or bad, I never know. We always say that you are your own enemy and I can’t agree with that anymore. You give yourself the most hate, so stop. 

I tell you to stand in the mirror and call yourself beautiful, smile and love you for you. I do this every morning, but I still always have such a hard time. I wake up, put some clothes on and look at myself, make sure I match and my outfit looks well. 

“You look bad”

 “Wow your legs kinda look fat in those shorts”

 “Can your hair look any worse” 

I then change outfits because I do not look good enough, I restyle my hair because it looks awful and my self esteem just hit the ground. All because I thought and told myself these things. 


When I caught myself doing this, I tried so hard to stop. I left the outfit on, left my hair alone and went on with my day. Sure, I got compliments and told that I looked beautiful, but I didn’t feel that way. I felt so insecure because my mind made me feel like I didn’t look good. I walked the halls and went through my day feeling so down and depressed. I didn’t know why I felt like everyone was judging me when it was really just myself. How was I going to stop…… ); 

I prayed. I asked God to help me with my mind, and my confidence. I wanted to be able to listen to myself and it be positive. 

“Hannah you look wonderful” 

“This shirt makes my eyes look good today” 

“I did my makeup good this morning, yay me” 

I felt these things. Slowly I have started to defeat my mind and myself as an enemy. I shut it out and took control. Don’t think that I completely did though, I still battle myself everyday it feels like, but my battles have become easier. I learned to not be so hard on myself, that I am pretty and there is nothing wrong with feeling that way. 

A Few Ways to Win:

  • Pray
  • Ignore your thoughts and go about your day. 
  • Talk to someone you trust, tell them how you feel. 
  • Fight back. When you tell yourself something negative, immediately say something positive back. 
  • Don’t do what you say. Don’t change the outfit or the hair, go out, smile and have fun. You look great. 💗

You mind is your worst nightmare. You yourself are your worst enemy, but are you brave enough to face yourself and take control? 


Week 4/4: Simpy You.  nxt weekend. 💕 

I have a few exciting things coming up this next week/ two weeks hopefully and I am so excited to share them with y’all. Thank you so much for being so supportive and reading. 

XOXO Han 💗

Week 2/4: Ways to Accept/Self Love 

Week 2/4: Ways to Accept/Self Love 

I am so beyond sorry I am a day late, I had an awful day yesterday and some family stuff going on, but here is week 2. I hope y’all enjoy ❤️

My mom always told me when I was younger; “It’s not what’s on the outside, it’s what on the inside” That never truly clicked with me until I got old enough to understand the whole saying. My body is not what makes me beautiful, being truly kind and showing that I love who I am makes me beautiful. My confidence in myself makes me beautiful.

I know it’s hard to love yourself, all of you, every single flaw… granted I still to this day don’t fully 100% love myself. Nobody does and I believe that nobody will, it’s just human nature, but there are ways to love and accept yourself.

10 Ways to Love You and Accept You:

1. Tell yourself you’re beautiful.

You are so so loved and all of those flaws are what make you… you. Believe that they were placed there for a reason.

2. Point out what you love, rather than what you hate.

Stand in the mirror every morning and and tell yourself what you love. “You have an amazing smile” “My skin is so pretty today” “I look beautiful today”

3. Smile.

Just smile. You will feel a difference.

4. Find your uniqueness

What about you makes you different and special? Is it your hair, smile, personality. Find what makes you, you and LOVE IT.

5. Pray.

Ephesians 2:19-22 says “Whenever you feel unloved or unimportant… insecure or not pretty.. remember to whom you belong to.”

Ask God for some confidence, tell Him how you feel and He will fulfill you.

6. DO NOT COMPARE

Whatever you do, do not compare yourself to another. There will always be someone prettier or more fit, smarter or more athletic than you. AND THAT IS OKAY.

7.  Show yourself off

You deserve to be showen off, take those selfies and love you.

8. Go out!!

Go have fun with friends, whether it’s just a run to the store, dress up and feel pretty and go out! Have fun, and always smile.

9. BE ACTIVE.

Being active helps you. Clearing your skin and sweating out all those toxins will make your skin clear and beautiful. Also you will be in shape.

10. Look at the sunset, and realize it is beautiful. Now look at yourself.. you’re beautiful too.

Psalm 62:5 says “my soul finds rest in God alone because my confidence comes from him.” 

You are one of a kind and so so loved.

XOXO Han 💗

Week 1/4: Acceptance 

Week 1/4: Acceptance 

Do you accept you? Do you understand who you are and what you can accomplish in life? I guess the most important question would be, do people truly accept themselves or do they accept the person society made them? Society and the people around you have a way of changing you. Magazines, Social Media, Tv, they all make you look at yourself different, so ask yourself the question, Do you accept you or the society you? 

The world today is all technology, we are constantly on our phones. We watch shows like “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and see their perfect, society must have bodies. Then look at ourselves and wonder why we don’t look like that. Am I accepted with the body I have or am I being looked down on? 

Music is what keeps me moving, I constantly listen to music. Although my favorite is country music, I tend to listen to some other genres too. Slim thick, flat stomach, must be thick but can’t be fat. Those are just a few of the several sayings about women in songs. I’m not bashing any music, I listen to it, but are young girls hearing it and wondering if that’s what they MUST look like to get the boys, or to be liked? 

That’s what society seems to have taught us, if you’re not a girl with a media body, perfect flawless skin and can look good with makeup and even better without it then you don’t meet the standards of media…

 You are beautiful.

For the longest time I truly thought I wasn’t pretty enough or that I didn’t have a good enough body. I was always told “you don’t have a butt” or “you don’t have boobs, why wear a bra??”  I didn’t understand that I didn’t need either of those things, I was young, it always hurt me, it made my self esteem drop low. I felt ugly. 

I’ve grown and I’ve matured, the same people who once laughed at me for not having a butt/boobs can no longer laugh at me. They are now jealous because I accept myself for what I look like, I am beautiful because I am fearfully and wonderful made. 

Love yourself for who you are and what you look like. You do not need to match society and be someone you’re not. You don’t need to wear makeup and watch what you eat to be pretty. If you wanna wear makeup, wear it, you look amazing.. and if you don’t, then don’t.. YOU LOOK AMAZING.  Accept you, for you. That goes for anything you love to do. Do what makes you happy and what makes you feel beautiful, nobody’s opinion matters.

Being Confident in God

I’ve always, since I was little, thought that the key in life was to be the best. I thought I needed the best clothes, needed to play every sport I could and have the best grades. I thought I needed to be better than who was next to me. When I began to understand the thought of God making me, one of a kind, I knew I had it all wrong. 

I wasn’t confident the way I needed to be. I was confident in my looks and what I was doing and that wasn’t gonna take me anywhere. That kind of confidence has an ending. Somewhere in life you’ll meet someone better and there it goes, you have low self esteem. The confidence that God will give you last a life time. 

Isaiah 32:17 says “The fruit of righteousness will be peace, the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever” 

I’ve met people who have confidence. I’ve also met people who have confidence. One loved themselves, they flaunted what they had whether it be materials or body image. Don’t get me wrong, I was jealous of what they had and their looks, I wanted what they had, but when I met the people who had confidence in God, my view point changed… I wanted what they had. Confidence in God. 

Ephesians 2:19-22 says “Whenever you feel unloved, unimportant or insecure remember to whom you belong.” 

God made me, he made me look the way I look. I am one of a kind. I know that where ever I go in life, God has a plan. I have confidence that God will lead me and he will take care of me. I have no reason to worry, no reason to compare myself to anothers or be jealous of what he/she has.

Psalm 112:7 says “she confidently trust the Lord will care for her” 

Now that I’ve talked about confidence, I wanna talk about being conceited. YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU. God made them also, he made them look the way they look and everything within them. If someone compliments you… say thank you.. that’s all. You do not need to be snotty and say “oh I know” or “well duh it’s me” no. do not do that. God does not want you to be like that, he wants you to be secure with yourself and confident through him.
The kind of people who are conceited,get me, I can stand it. Sure, there are people who are pretty than me, have better things than me but that does not make them better than me and I am not better than anyone else. We are equal. 

Colossians 3:1-4 says “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory”

Remember. God does want you to be confident in yourself also, but he also wants you to be confident in him. 

Ways to be confident in yourself:

1. Tell yourself you are one of a kind 

Nobody looks like you, talks like you, walks like you, nobody is you. You are yourself and that is so amazing. You are God’s masterpiece.  Always remember that. 

2. Focus on what you love

Why waste time talking about your flaws? Do you really have flaws? Sure you might have acne or scars, stretch marks and cellulite but you’re beautiful/or handsome. God made you, he made that. He places each and every detail on you with a purpose. Don’t worry that you have a small butt or boobs. YOU ARE A MASTER PIECE. 

3. Smile. 

Smile. Smile. Smile. Smile. you are alive and breathing. God loves you so much, everything about you and he has a plan. Be confident in him and ask for confidence in yourself.
