Why is this word so scary to most people, why do the rest never think twice about the word?
Confidence is one of those things that you either have it or well you just don’t. But if you don’t have it don’t fear you can get it.
Growing up in my loving supportive family I was one of those that never thought twice about confidence I had it and that was all I needed to know.
In my day job I work as an Instructor at a local junior college and Confidence is something that we struggle with on the daily. A very sad fact to me but a fact nonetheless.
Why is it that the majority of those that I work with Instructing struggle with something that came so easy for me? Well I truly believe that not all are as blessed as I am to have such a loving and supportive family… really every member of my family and close network of friends believes in me and supports my dreams my goals and every ambition that I could ever conjure up. Not all out there today are as fortunate.
I never thought I couldn’t do something because my mom always told me that I could do anything that I set my mind to. She always taught me to be strong, independent, and positive always because there is always someone out there that is worse off than yourself, I was taught to never feel sorry for myself and to work hard for my dreams and goals.
The people who I deal with on a daily basis has not been taught these values and have not been supported, they were never told they can do it, they were perhaps put down instead of built up, they were not taught to be strong and independent and there I see the problem!
We must teach our young girls that they can be anything they want to be, to be strong independent women! We must teach them to love themselves and to be comfortable in their own skin.
Body image is such a strong issue in today’s culture Hollywood, magazines and the media have put a certain size and body type as the only one that can be beautiful and in reality every size and body type can be beautiful!
I love Ruby Ribbon because even on the worse days when I feel bloated and not beautiful I step into a ruby ribbon cami and my confidence quickly comes back! The cami hugs me all day long making me feel secure which adds to the confidence level!
It doesn’t matter if you are a size 2 or a size 22 you are beautiful and you beYOUtiful when you are yourself that exudes a particular type of beauty because you are authentically YOU remember that everyone else is taken, and God made you special just the way he wanted you to be!
