Happy Monday! We are having such a lovely weekend in Arizona, the weather is so incredible plus I got to break out my spring dresses which made me extra happy! A Zara store opened near my house so I stopped by a couple weekends ago and found so many great pieces that were on super sale. Unfortunately I couldn’t find my exact jacket but I will keep an eye out for you! Also you might want to check your local Zara, sometimes they carry things in store and not online. I found some similar styles at ASOS. My polka dot dress was also on sale but I found some very similar ones from Zara (here, here and here)
This year one of my resolutions was to connect with all of you on a deeper level. I want to know you better and vice versa. During my middle school and high school years I dealt with extreme lack of confidence. I was painfully shy. I had a group of friends which I loved dearly and I thought it was fine. In those friendships there were a lot of fights (physical and emotional) and because I was so stressed out I stopped eating. I would eat maybe a meal a day, the stress of those relationships literally made me sick. With all these hard feelings and harsh words as you can imagine my confidence was slim to none. My saving grace was when my boyfriend came into the picture. He was so incredible and treated me like a princess. All he did was build me up, I stopped talking to these friends and my life got drastically better. This topic is hard to talk about because having self confidence is easier said then done.
Honestly it takes time and a positive attitude. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think some really horrible things about myself but who is that helping? Correct the harsh words into positive ones. This takes time. Say “I am beautiful” in the mirror everyday until you whole heartily believe it.
“Low self-confidence isn’t a life sentence. Self-confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered–just like any other skill. Once you master it, everything in your life will change for the better.” –Barrie Davenport
Be kind to yourself.
