Having an Attitude of Gratitude

I am really trying to be more grateful and thankful in my day to day life but I constantly find myself giving in to negativity. It's so annoying and it's not the type of person I want to be, yet I slip back into it like a comfy pair of stretchy pants.


Nobody likes a Debbie Downer or a Negative Nelly. Nobody likes the girl who is complaining ALL the time about EVERYTHING. Hopefully, I 'm not that girl! I am trying to maintain an attitude of gratitude and try to appreciate things more.



Unrelated- I really like this dress. I wore it once last year, and a student told me I looked pregnant. Never what a non-pregnant woman wants to hear, so I packed it up and vowed to never wear it again. But with this new attitude, and the realization that apparently there is a Tumblr dedicated to belly fat (I can't reveal the name because it's definitely R-rated) and I am reblogged there often, I figured at least one person didn't mind if I looked pregnant!




Only FIVE more days to vote for me and my local library in the Maurice's Main Street Model Search! If you haven't voted, it really is supper easy and It will only take a minute. I do hate begging, but this is for the library- they win the real prize! So take a second and go vote- please!

That dress is SO pretty - I'm glad you decided to break it out again! I've been asked if I was pregnant twice in one year. I'm going to hope it's the fact that I'm recently married and that's why people are asking - and not because I'm fat :)

That dress is so very pretty on you and you definitely do NOT look pregnant in it! Your student needs to learn you never ask a woman if she's preggers!

I have several friends and family members having babies, so I've frequently been buying baby items. I've had more than a few cashiers do a double and triple take. And on that note, you do not look pregnant and that dress is gorgeous.

Sometimes I walk around with my stomach pushed out and I'll pretend to be pregnant. It's kinda fun? But weird....

Haha I am the most pessimistic person ever, I think I've had "be more optimistic, grateful, nice, etc" on my NY Resolutions every year now for like...my life haha. It's a good attitude to constantly strive for! Love these beautiful bright colours on you, you look lovely as always!

Before reading your blog and only having seen the first picture, I thought to myself "OMG look how tiny her waist is!" True. Story. But really, so great!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

That's what I like to hear! I thought the same thing when I first saw them! I'm thanking the new kick-A camera!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Rebecca!

Me too! I have always been a "glass half empty" gal, no matter how hard I try! I'll be good for a day or two, and then something doesn't go my way and I'm done!

I'm a fairly new reader to your blog, but this is definitely my favorite outfit so far! The dress is gorgeous!

I was asked how far along I was once.....after having just lost quite a few pounds! Talk about depressing! I don't think you look pregnant at all, it looks like a great fit!

I don't think that it makes you look pregnant! This looks like something that a pregnant woman would find very comfortable, due to the high empire waist, but it's a beautiful dress that does not (DOES NOT) make you look like you are expecting. I love that you dug it out of storage and were willing to share this with us because weight is often a huge issue for many women. It does not define our worth!!! You are beautiful!!! (and a few more of these !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for good measure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
