On my mind the last week:
Confidence, and the lack thereof in the female population especially.
Gals, listen up: We all need to embrace ourselves. We are what we are. Everyone can use improvement, sure. But you, yourself- right now? You are freaking awesome. You are a work of art. You are simply amazing.
Why are we letting one little flaw, or one little perceived flaw grab hold of our minds? Why are we obsessing over our looks, or clothes, or home decorating, etc? Why this nitpicking dominating our conversations?
Why do we send negative messages through our thoughts and hearts, repeatedly, so often? And when we aren't, we are wishing and thinking of a body shape or a skill or a trait we don't have?
I don't know why we do it. I do it, but I hope that I'm getting better. I want us all to knock it off and be CONFIDENT. Let's do it together. Let's change today, on this Monday morning. Think positive things about yourself. Don't dwell on negative.
I've been pondering this topic a lot this week, because as I reflect on the friends we have and the new friends we've made, there are many who stand out in my mind- many who we feel connected with- and drawn to. I love the feeling you get when you meet somebody and it's electric. Have you felt that? There's something about this person you just really, really like.
I decided this week that those people are the confident people. They own it. They respect themselves, they don't dwell on the negative or the flawed, and they create a positive feeling wherever they go. I know even these people have bad days. But I'm fairly certain that these people are not obsessing over the little things.
I want to be confident. I want to OWN. So I'm going to be this. I am going to be confident.
(A tiny side note. Tyler is a super confident person. Which is pretty much why he is awesome. On any given day you will find Tyler in a great mood, ready to roll, sending out good vibes, knowing he can take it all on. I dare you all to meet him and not find him irresistible. I DARE YOU!)
