“Beauty is when you can appreciate yourself. When you love yourself, that’s when you’re most beautiful.”- Zoe Kravitz
I feel like many, MANY of my posts have to do with growing your confidence. The reason why is because I have personally struggled with it to the extreme and I know how much your confidence can effect your life.
In one of my posts I wrote not to long ago I talked about how you should just rock what you have physically. That if you think you look beautiful then no one else’s opinions matter. That the way you look is unique and you should embrace it to the max. After all no one else in the world looks like you..so show those lovely features you have off. Screw whether the media or people tell you it’s not beautiful..you make it beautiful by just showing your confidence in it. And by showing your confidence people will start noticing that and come your way.
Today I wanted to take this a little farther than your physical appearance though. Love the things that have nothing to do with what you look like. Because in all honesty looks only get you so far and as you get older they will fade. So it’s very important to love yourself besides your outside appearance.
I want you to think about what makes you, you. What is different about you that you love about yourself? This can be as random or as strange as you want it to be. Here is a weird example of myself. I like things crunchy. I remember as a little girl my mom would make spaghetti and I’d have my dad heat it up in the microwave multiple times to give it that crunch. He would always find it weird or even tell me I couldn’t eat it like that, but regardless he would still do it anyway for me. As strange as that example is I love that about myself because I’m still like that today and it’s a weird quirk I’ve always had about myself.
I also want you all to think about your personality. What do you love about it? I personally love that I love to help motivate others. If someone is down or feeling like they can’t do something I love being able to show them a little of what I see in them. And tell them all the special traits about them. For you maybe you’re funny. Or maybe like me you make yourself laugh. And to be honest that’s all that matters. If you can crack up at your own lame jokes I feel like that’s a very confident trait.
If you can’t think of anything you are confident in yourself with go out and try something. Go pick up a hobby for example. You may never know you could find your calling by trying something new. While you grow confident by doing it. And if you don’t like it you can always find something else to do and find confidence in.
My challenge for all of you reading this is discover the beauty that is you. Inside and out you are beautifully, and wonderfully made. From the top of your head to your toes. There is no one else in the world that can be you except you so go out and show yourself off. Show off your amazing smile. Slow off your bubbly personality. Show off your crazy guitar skills. Show off your writing that you’re meant to share with the world. Whatever makes you, you let it shine out for all to see.
Talk to you all tomorrow,
