The Story Behind my Flower Crowns-& How to Own the Confidence that Lives Within you.
She was crowned in confidence and laughed without fear of the future.
We've all heard it, we've all pinned it, we've all pondered and shook our heads at the fact confidence and fearlessness is as easy to accomplish as putting a fire out with rubbing alcohol.
However, if I could tell you one thing in hopes that it would stick with you forever- I would tell you that you are a legit Princess.
Because that is something that I am confident about...
Ever so clearly painted in my mind: White sheer cloth loosely draped from the crown of her head sweeping across her eyelids onto the muted floral bouquet held at waist height. She swiftly makes her entrance and way down the aisle to her moment. Her moment where he unveils her soft porcelain skin from beneath the sheer covering. For that moment, the existence of flaws is irrelevant, nothing in the world matters accept being present, true beauty and confidence awakens. All eyes are on her.
This moment is everything she has been dreaming of her whole life. To be unveiled by her Prince who rescued her, and intends to take her on the adventure of a lifetime. The moment where she finally gets to experience the revelation in which she truly wishes to be seen.
This moment lives inside us.
We crave to see the beauty that this moment unveils in ourselves DAILY.
There is a reason we are swooned by love stories and having our knight in shining armor come sweep us away to be romanced. We crave to be pursued and desired and to be a priority.
"We desire to possess a beauty that is worth pursuing, worth fighting for, a beauty that is core to who we truly are. We want beauty that can be seen; beauty that can be felt; beauty that affects others; a beauty all our own to unveil." - Captivating by John & Stacy Eldredge
However, we view confidence in other women as negativity for we pretend to mask it as conceit. We use comparison as a mirror to tell us if we have lipstick in our teeth. Our minds continue to ricochet the thought that we are anything BUT worthy. OUR HEARTS ARE HARDENED.
Does our father not say: "Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life." - (?!) Proverbs 4:23
Our heart is the source of all of our CREATIVITY and courage. Our faith, hope and love. Our heart is the most important thing about us. OUR JEWEL THAT SHINES FROM WITHIN.
Guess what?! "The King is enthralled by YOUR beauty." Psalms 45:11
The beauty that we intuitively want to know about, he sees within us already.
Outward beauty without depth of character is not true beauty at all.
My pursuit isn't only to put a crown on you to show you that you can LOOK like a princess.
My pursuit is to AWAKEN the Princess that lives inside of you.
You are HIS princess, you have been pursued and will continue to be pursued by HIM, you emulate HIM and all of his beauty and you deserve to know that.
Find your crown & let it be a reminder. It fits. & you look beautiful.
Each floral crown is handmade and intricately assembled with love! I can promise you that! Just as the Father designed and created YOU! A quick reminder (because Ive been asked) the flower crowns are not real. But they sure look it! Perfect for weddings, events, and photoshoots! Photography by Christine ta
