My Gal!! Hi! Let me just start this off by telling ya you’re asking the chick who shivers in her boots at the thought of having to order a coffee at Starbucks. I am terrified about 99% of the time. But a thing that I’ve started to learn with life that I find a lot of comfort in is that everyone is terrified 99% of the time. No one is as confident as they are acting like they are. We’re all just little kids wishing our parents would check under our bed for monsters. 

I read this quote once and it sent me into a frenzy of thoughts:

“Confidence isn’t walking into a room with your nose in the air and thinking you are better than everyone else. It’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone else in the first place”

Confidence isn’t some secret formula that you seek out and swallow before bed every night. Confidence is a quiet and humble change in character that we mold and shape into existence by starting to actually like who we are. When you look at yourself in the mirror and are able to say, ‘Yeah I’m cool with me,’ that’s going to come out in every other facet of your life. 

You don’t have to walk with your shoulders back and have a really firm handshake for people to think you’re confident. Heck, you don’t even have to look like you know what you’re doing half the time, as long as you laugh along with the mess of life and give yourself credit for carrying your own bones, you’re doing great. 

Yours Truly,
