The subject that hits below the belt always. We all struggle with things and that’s A okay, owning and loving the skin we are in is a journey within itself. But when you know what you’re capable of bringing to the table and you recognize that without others having to tell you, the real magic begins.
Let’s not get this confused with arrogance/ being cocky. Have you ever got undressed and just stared at yourself? Appreciating every part of your being? If you haven’t done this lately . . . Do it. There’s something so refreshing about accepting your body for what it is. This is something you have the power to change.
I dare you. Get out the shower, and get in front of the mirror and embrace you. You’d be surprised how your thoughts may shift towards what you think of yourself. After lather up in some baby oil or whatever you prefer and get it going. Feel good about you.
Ever look at yourself and say I be playing myself? I’ve said this before, don’t trip it’s cool. Remember that image you love so much? Naked. Always remember that temple is yours, you own it and even with flaws ... you’re a work in progress and a work of art baby.
We are more than our body, but body image is something millions of people struggle with on a daily basis. It effects our overall confidence when we don’t check ourselves and be proud of even our short comings. For me, my boobs were my downfall. I hated having itty bittys growing up like A cup? Ugh. I don’t look like a woman, I feel like a little boy. Maybe I should go get my boobs done.
Small things like this could change our interactions with not just ourselves but, with others. Then we grow up things start to bloom and we realize or maybe even someone tells you, you’re perfect just the way you are before you notice it.
Confidence begins with us, no one else.
I hope that if you struggle with lack of confidence in any area of your life you realize this one thing “You have everything you need right within you” - God
So for the next month I challenge you and myself to find 1 or 2 things that you feel not so confident with and make it a point to work at it. Let’s work baby!!
As always lots of love and bub,
