SHOP THE LOOK
This outfit is a little sassy all while being quite wearable. It’s jeans. A hat. A sweater. Heels. When you break it down it’s quite simple, but the details are what make it sassy and I love it! From the floppy hat to these nude heels, I’ll just go ahead and say this look helped me feel sassy.
So let’s talk about feeling sassy or confident or whatever you want to call it! We all have our own tips and tricks. Some girls crank up the music. Others have a good-luck lipstick or perfume!
I’ll be honest. There have been times I flat-out don’t feel confident. I know it probably appears all fashion bloggers are borderline TOO confident. I mean should anyone ever have this many selfies or photos of themselves in clothing? LOL! Trust me, I’m still trying to get used to all this. 🙂
Remember: What you see isn’t always real.
Making comparisons is a damaging and an inaccurate measure of success.
We’ve all been there at one point or another. Remember those middle school days? Or high school days? Oh, the need to fit in, to be the cool kid. We’ve all been victims of occasional bouts of self-doubt, even the most successful, charismatic, confident one’s have their moments of insecurity. Self-confidence can be a very delicate and complex thing. A few are born with it; others learn it early on and the rest of us have to learn to build it on our own.
Confidence is a state of mind.
In reality it simply means having faith in yourself.
Our confidence plays an important role in our ability to achieve success and happiness. It affects our mental thought patterns, the way we speak, the way we act, and the decisions we make in all areas of our lives – career, money, relationships, and even our health. Confident people take more action, perform better, and are more likely to attain their goals. In addition, confident people also know how to take more enjoyment from their accomplishments are happier in general.
Lucky for us, confidence can be built and strengthened until it becomes natural, just as any other habit. It simply takes a little time, some effort, and a bit of attention. Recently, I’ve been using a little trick to get me through these negative thoughts and it’s worked! When I begin to self-doubt, I think to myself, “No one is worried about me as much as I am worrying about me.” Think about that for a minute. Maybe. Just maybe it’s our own worries that hold us back, not other people’s assumptions.
Build me up, Buttercup. I know it sounds a bit cheesy, but supporting yourself verbally can do a lot to increase confidence. Maybe don’t say to yourself out loud while standing in line at the grocery store. You’re sure to get some crazy looks. But the next time you’re nervous, anxious or self-doubting, look into the mirror and tell yourself (out loud) that you are bold, beautiful and brilliant. Make this a regular habit and you will find yourself feeling much more secure. I promise.
Always remember to fully embrace what defines you.
Make it a great week!
