Leggings? Really!

leggings

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?
