wonderfully made: amber from stages of gold

The Wonderfully Made series is back! Amber from Stages of Gold is here today to share with you, and I couldn't be more excited! She writes such an honest and inspiring blog.

Hey there! I'm Amber, a 20-something aspiring to be the best version of me that I possibly can. Stages of Gold is where I chronicle my highs, lows, and goals and (hopefully) help others work towards being the best version of themselves too! Feel free to stop by, explore, and share your thoughts with me! 

My Optimism: I can usually find the silver lining in anything. Optimism and faith really will get you a long ways when times get tough. I believe I have my grandmothers strength in that sense, and she was one of the strongest women I have ever met.

My Drive: When I set my mind to do something, it is definitely going to get done. I have a real "go-getter" attitude, and I love pursuing my passions. I know I have a vivid vision of what my future will look like, and I won't stop until I get everything I know God has set for me to have. Faith without works is dead, and I'm definitely willing to put in the work!

My Hair: My hair is big part of my personality. I love that it's big enough to block people out of pictures, and it definitely makes a statement when I come into a room. My hair says that I'm not afraid to stand out in a crowd...and I'm definitely not hard to spot in the crowd either! 

What confidence means to me: Being confident is trusting that just by being you, you are walking in your divine purpose. It goes far beyond your physical appearance. It's looking in the mirror and going "look at you, you were designed this way so that you can be great, you were made perfectly." It's also having the courage to recognize when you need to improve, and never allowing yourself to plateau. I feel the most confident when I'm doing things that better me, like working out or studying something new.

Thanks for sharing, Amber! Be sure to check out her sweet blog and connect with her elsewhere :)
