I am thrilled to be partnering with Durango Boots as they sponsored this post. These are my honest insights about life and the role amazing boots can play!
Simple Acres has been an opportunity to grow as a person. Country living has always been in my blood as I reflect on fond memories as a child in the Wyoming mountains hiking with my dad…learning about life, nature and all things great. This year I have been Growing Confidence in the new venture my love and children have begun…exploring in much the same way.
Just as the seasons change, so has our journey been at Simple Acres. Some seasons are easier than others. I am learning new things and also learning to be more confident in the new realms of life I have not yet mastered. Believe me when I say, there is SO MUCH more to learn in this new lifestyle of farming, being a mom of three beautiful vibrant children and a new(er) lifestyle blogger. Mastering balance is a challenge but what makes everything that much more valuable….is the CONFIDENCE that is gained by dreaming, believing and living the life you have always wanted!
5 Ways to Grow Confidence
1. Speak your dreams out loud…soon enough you will BELIEVE them
2. Lean into your God given gifts and utilize them
3. Try new things
4. Never give up and speak words of edification to yourself
5. Value your ability to create the life you choose
In this last year we have been blessed with a home and acreage that allows us to have cattle in our own backyard. I have learned how to vaccinate cattle. I have learned that….hard work outdoors (for me) is an area for growth at times. I have learned how to garden and feed my family with food from our own soil. I have learned the joy of renovating a nearly 100 year old home. I have been blessed to find people actually enjoy reading and following along with my ramblings and creativity. I have learned failure is only a matter of attitude. When your attitude is that failure is not possible….NOTHING is impossible.
There are many things that grow confidence in our inner selves. I want to remind you that the things we do on a daily basis to build confidence on the outside is an amazing part of this journey we call life as well. One thing that I have done for the last few years is wear cowgirl boots. One reason is because….well, who doesn’t love them and think they are such a complement to a girl’s attire? (wink)
We live on acres of dirt and since living here I have needed something comfy and also cute! Durango boots were one of the first boots I bought and…friends to be honest… I fell in love and they are thee most comfortable shoes I own to date! In the last few years I have worn them with shorts, jeans, sweats…and well even my swimsuit in the summer (ha)!
I am so excited to get to partner with Durango boots and share a product that has been a symbol of my inner growth this last year to me! Not only that, but friends, this is a product I stand behind and would tell you with all honesty, is a great boot! If dirt and cows isn’t your thing, they have so many fun styles that are also suitable for my “city-folk” as well (only joking you know I love you XO).
Durango boots give me the spirit of what’s written on their bottoms…I am a Rebel for dreams and making them come true! I am excited to celebrate this first year with you all and I feel encouraged to help you do the same!
What do you want to achieve in this short blink we call life? I want to know! I want to be in your corner encouraging your dreams to come true as well…and when in doubt…pull on some Durango boots! They aren’t boots…THEY ARE AN ATTITUDE! Now lets hit the road running in CONFIDENCE! Dovidenia. XO
