Confidence. Part 1.
In an age where life is more often based off of trends and the necessity to fit in, I find it somewhat of a struggle to sincerely find myself. This past few years have been somewhat of a roller coaster for me. I would honestly even go as far as to say that I have been down more than I have been up. I don’t want this year to be a continuation. I want to have far more positive moments than negative ones. I think one of the reasons I was having so many negative moments is because I was not confident in myself and my ability to create my own happiness. So this year, I’m going to increase my confidence. Whatever it takes.
Often times we worry about being too this, or too that, especially as women. Everything we do is often to please someone other than ourselves. We compete with everyone except ourselves. We try to impress women, men, our parents, our family, our friends. We try to prove this and that person wrong. We try to be better than her, him, our coworkers, our classmates, our peers. My question is, Why? Why do we do that to ourselves? Why is it so important for us to build ourselves up to outdo someone or something else. Everything doesn’t have to be a competition. Happiness should NEVER be a competition. We should strive to be happy because happiness is the ultimate goal in life. Everything we do, we do because we think it will lead us to something that will make us happy.
If happiness is our goal, let’s think about how we can be happy. Now, I can’t tell you what will make you happy. I can’t tell you what you need to do to be happy. That’s not my place. What I can do is tell you how I plan to find my happiness. I can encourage you to explore your lives and discover where your happiness lies.
It’s taken me a while to realize how my happiness lies within. I’ve been aware of the power that I have over my own happiness but recently, I have discovered just how important it is for me to be in control of my journey 2 happiness. Stay tuned for my journey into my confident skin.
