This one right here is for my ladies because as I was scrolling down my timeline the other day, all I could think to myself was, 'I hope these ladies truly have confidence and don't feel compelled to do something crazy everyday'.
Confidence is something that we as women have really struggled with, but I can honestly say, there are a lot of positive images out there that weren't necessarily there as I was growing up. When I was a teen it seemed to be a few standards of beauty, and if you fell out of those categories, you weren't necessarily considered pretty. These days, you can turn on your TV or scroll down your timeline and see a girl that looks like you (size, color, nationality, look) and she is just as fabulous as ever. But at the same time, you can scroll down your timeline and see a girl/woman that doesn't look like you, that looks rather knifed up (tons of plastic surgery... unrealistic), and then you can find yourself self guessing if you should walk around confident or if you should make some changes to yourself. Now, I will be the FIRST to say, if there is something about yourself that you don't like, go ahead and change it. I don't think there is anything wrong with plastic surgery. BUT as a woman that hasn't gone under the knife, I also think it's important to educate yourself and change what you can with hard work and discipline. I could go on and on about this topic, but that's not what this post is about... Maybe I'll talk about it another time...
But for those ladies struggling with confidence, I'd like to tell you why you should wear confidence every single day...
#1 You're a WOMAN, which makes you a goddess, which makes you super powerful!
Ladies... lets not forget that when God made the first woman, he made her to be a compliment to her husband... She was kinda like a gift to her husband as far as I'm concerned. So you are worthy QUEEN!!! Believe that. Life comes from us! That's enough to believe you are absolutely amazing!
#2 If you don't believe in yourself, or see your beauty, why should anyone else
Having confidence starts with you! It's all about what you think about yourself, what's the narrative you're telling yourself every single day! If you think that you look amazing, trust me, others will fall in line. You may have to fake it a little bit in the beginning, but then, you'll start believing it, and so will everyone else!
#3 You deserve to feel good about yourself every day
You deserve it! So wear it, and wear it proudly.
#4 No one likes to be around a person that's not confident (unless they're a sick individual... but that's another blog for another day)
Think about it, would you want to go to a party where every one was somber and ragging on themselves and whining like a baby? Or would you want to go to the party that was popping, that everyone was at, that everyone looked fabulous and you could feel amazing energy in the air? Yeah, I think that's a no brainer! If your energy sucks, you in turn suck, and no one wants to be around a sucky person! Just keeping it real with you...
#5 Being confident is attractive
Let me tell you. This is the key right here ladies. CONFIDENCE! Ask any man, they love to be around a confident woman. The woman all made up with the baddest body in the room has NOTHING on the girl with minimal everything that knows she is fabulous. That girl, will be the girl all the real men flock to and the one they view as the sexiest. So I tell you this not to say don't wear makeup and take some pride in yourself... ABSOLUTELY NOT!! (Get your butt to 718 Hoboken to take that confidence to the next level because you will leave looking fly... shameless plug). But I say all of this to say, don't wear the makeup and the fly clothes and go to the gym for somebody else. Go for YOU!!! And if you don't want to do all of that, don't! But walk fearlessly, believing that you are the baddest in the room and the best you can be and you will!
WEAR YOUR CONFIDENCE LADIES! AND WEAR IT PROUDLY!!!
