Today, my confidence is at an all time high!
I am wearing leggings and a short dress. I have already been told a few times that I am looking cute today. Why is this significant? Well, it’s my first time in my adult life wearing them in public. You see, for years, I have been of the opinion, “…just because it stretches, doesn’t mean it has to”.
So far, this week I have made it to the gym daily and feeling very comfortable in my clothes. I am able to once again wear some of my old outfits and items that I bought but was afraid to wear.
I am adjusting to a new mindset when it comes to my self-image. Often I have seen women who I believe were too overweight to wear certain outfits, yet they do it with confidence. This always perplexed me. Over time, I learned to admire their self -esteem to pull it off. Now, I realize that it was my own self-image that distorted my view. Because I lacked the courage and confidence, I wanted others to do the same (subconsciously of course).
Low self-esteem and a distorted view of self can be so destructive in ones life. It impacts your family, relationships, career, and overall happiness.
As I continue to CREATE AN AMAZING LIFE for myself, I am much more aware of this. I am enjoying my day in leggings and look forward to boldly going in fashion where I haven’t gone before! What about you?
