I get a lot of messages from you guys on my Instagram and Facebook and YouTube channel asking me how I am so happy, confident, and full of joy. And I've heard your stories and your experiences and the things that you struggle with.
And above all, far more important than all of the fashion and beauty content I share, I want to spread love and joy and inspire you to live with confidence. That's exactly why I made this blog and all of my social media pages! I wanted to share what makes me happy to inspire you to do what makes YOU happy!
So in this post I want to share with you the reasons I am confident and give you some motivation on how to live a life you love, while loving YOURSELF! LET'S DO THIS!
Reason #1: God made me and designed me (my personality, my strengths, my weaknesses, my body) and that gives me confidence to accept myself and love myself because He doesn't make mistakes! He is perfect and good and has a plan for each of us.
Reason #2: I am the only ME on the planet. You are the only YOU on the planet. Well, even in the entire universe! We are each unique and special. And that is beautiful in itself. You are art. One of a kind. A masterpiece to be treated with kindness and respect.
Reason #3: I am strong. I know that I can make it through anything life throws at me because I have the power to hold on and hope and persevere when I face challenges. You have that same power inside of you. You can choose to have that same mentality every day - to never give up. If you have that mindset, what is there to be afraid of? You know you can make it through anything. Promise yourself that you will never give up on yourself. That strength will make you confident in any situation.
Reason #4: I accept that I am not perfect. It's difficult to be confident when you are still caught up in the fact that you have flaws. Well, guess what...we ALL have flaws. That's what being human is. We are not perfect beings and we make mistakes. Once you accept that and are OKAY with being imperfect, you can start to love yourself as a whole - for the successes and the failures.
Reason #5: I work hard every day to be better. I am on my own path and I am constantly open to learning more about the world and about myself. Remember that you always have another chance to be better and love more. Be confident in the fact that you are on a path moving forward. You are progressing and growing each day into a better you!
*Another important thing to keep in mind: Being confident is very different from being conceited. Being confident goes hand in hand with being humble. I found this quote online that I LOVE -
"Confidence isn't walking into a room and thinking you're better than everyone else...it's walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone in the first place." -anonymous
Comment below a reason that you love yourself. I love you and believe in you!! We are going to do some amazing things in this world.
