High Five for Friday!

Friday is about to become my favorite day, and here's why.

Lauren over at Lauren Elizabeth hosts the High Five Fridays link up every Friday and I'm excited to participate!

Here's how it works: You pick your five favorite things that happened during the week and share them. That's it!

I love this because it puts the focus on the good things that happen in our lives, and challenges me to look at the positives even if I've had the worst week ever.

So without further ado, my High Five for the week:

The Beginner's Guide to Skiing {Without Dying}.

Last week was spring break in Texas and I spent this time with my friend Meagan and her family in the beautiful Colorado Rockies. It was my first time to Colorado, and especially my first time skiing. However; I survived, and I do believe that makes me an expert on skiing. Therefore, I consider it my civil duty to impart my advanced knowledge to help beginners -- of which I no longer am -- become more confident in their skiing ability. To fulfill this duty, I have compiled a list of my top 10 lessons learned about skiing. You're welcome.

My whole life I have struggled with feelings of inadequacy, comparing myself to others and falling into depression when I couldn’t measure up.

My whole life I have based my self-worth and value on how many friends I had, how many things I was good at, how many boys would flirt with me.

My whole life I have poured every effort into trying to please everyone around me because I was convinced that happiness was directly related to the number of people who love you.

My whole life I have believed that I am just not good enough.

My name is Kayla Holiday, and I struggle deeply with insecurity.
