The Song Ed Sheeran Wrote for Hilary Duff

Hey everyone, Rose here.  What better way to start out the week, than with a music video??

So, if you haven’t noticed – I like Buzzfeed.  A lot.  One of the things I like the most, are the videos.

Well, I stumbled across this one in an amazing article the other day, and I just had to share it.

Growing up, Hilary Duff was one of my inspirations.  She was for tons of girls my age, and with good reason!  She was sassy, confident, kind, generous, and a true good girl.  She was clumsy, but laughed about it.  She was dorky, but owned it.  She gave girls like me the licence to be themselves – flaws and all.

To this day, I can’t think of a better role model for young girls and young women than her.  If I ever had a daughter, I would encourage her to look up to the icon.

Hilary, in all her awesomeness, took several years off from showbiz, to make and spend time with her family.  She got married, had a little boy, and sadly ended up separating from her husband (which breaks my heart).

She’s put out a new album since then, but this single came out as well, and it’s amazing.

I had no idea she hung out with Ed Sheeran – seriously, who doesn’t he hang out with??  He’s friends with like, everyone, and I’m not really surprised, cuz he seems awesome too.

Anyway, apparently he wrote this song for her, and she then made a video of herself singing it on her front porch – how amazing is that?!? 😀

To honor one of my long-held role-models, I’m sharing her video today.  So much love goes out to her, and while my heart breaks for her, I can’t help but love her even more.

So, what do you think of this video?  Does it sound like something Ed Sheeran wrote?  Do you like Hilary too?  Don’t worry, I won’t get offended if you didn’t like it, or don’t like her – not everyone does.

I’m curious to hear what you think though, so let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for visiting, and please, share this post if you enjoyed it!

I Am Also Not “That” Girl

Perfection.  Flaws.  Thin.  Fat.  Beautiful.  Ugly.

These are all terms that tend to circle around in my head when I see magazines, or watch movies, or read articles in mainstream-media.

When I go to the mirror after having these words circling my head, I only see bad.  My “flaws” stand out and scream at me.  Voices whisper how I must be disappointing to my husband, because I’m obviously not good enough.  How I must secretly be the “ugly” friend of my various circles, and I don’t know it.

The past few years, God has been working with me on a daily basis, to change the way I think.  To re-wire my brain, and re-focus my spirit.

This video really hit home with me – I Am Not “That” Girl.  It’s not exactly how I feel, point for point, but it’s close enough to stir emotions.

I know I’m not the only one who feels this way – obviously, people are talking about it more and more.  So, for any other person out there who feels like they’re not the idealistic “perfect” person/image/model, I hear ya.  This may help.

What do you think of this video?  Does it inspire any emotions, good or bad?  Please let me know in the comments below.
