Why Tiaras & Tennis Shoes?

Leave a comment

Glad you asked.

None of us are just one way all the time. Some days we love a burger and other days we want the filet mignon—with lobster, of course. Some days, we’re the life of the party and others—not so much. For me, I love beautiful jewelry. The sparklier, the better. But I’m a very casual dresser and usually wear tennis shoes. Fancy jewelry with tennis shoes and T-shirts? Mmm…I don’t think so.

Thus, the title of Tiaras and Tennis Shoes.

Along with this duality comes conflict and struggle. Between right and wrong. Between being good and bad. Between the face we show the world and the face we see in the mirror. Between expectations and desires. Between our insecurities and confidence. The list could go on and on, but I won’t. You get the idea.

I don’t know about you, but life can get confusing at times, don’t you think?

So, how do we come to terms with the contradictions in life and in ourselves? I’m still working on it. But as a Child of God, I have a wonderful source of wisdom to help (you might even call it a secret weapon), God’s Word.

As I was writing this blog I was reminded of the fact God made me and that HE loves me just the way I am, including the fact that I like pretty baubles and tennis shoes. So, I’m going to make an effort to start wearing all my shiny, glittery jewelry even with my tennis shoes!

Tiaras and Tennis Shoes is just my teeny tiny corner of this humongous electronic world where I’ll be musing, pondering, and pontificating about this, that, and whatever else catches my fancy. Not to mention, you’ll be hearing about me, my books, and my writing career from time to time.

Hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better. Tell me about one conflict in your life.
