Our Bites Of Style Motivational word for the week is confidence
Now do you have confidence? Boy I sure hope so, but at times it can be hard to muster up enough confidence to get the job done.
Confidence: Full trust, belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities; self-confidence;self-reliance; assurance: trustworthiness
Hebrews 10: 35-36 says ,” Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.”
From time to time we all have a few confidence issues, but we shouldn’t let that get in our way.. We were all creative to do great and wonderful things. I encourage each of you to have confidence to do something new and amazing this week.
Here are a few tips to help you gain back your confidence
Recognize your insecurities. What does that voice in the back of your mind say? What makes you uncomfortable or ashamed of yourself? This could be anything from acne to regrets, friends at school or a past traumatic or negative experience. Whatever is making you feel unworthy, ashamed, or inferior, identify it, give it a name, and write it down.
Bounce back from your mistakes. Remember that no one is perfect. Even the most confident people have insecurities. At some point in any of our lives, we may feel we lack something. That is reality. Learn that life is full of bumps down the road. And that often these insecure feelings come and go.
Identify your successes. Everyone is good at something, so discover the things at which you excel, then focus on your talents. Give yourself permission to take pride in them.
Now what does this all have to do with fashion? Well confidence is the best thing you can wear. It doesn’t matter the price of a garment, but how confident you are when you wear the clothing.
Now here’s a collection that inspires lot’s of confidence. The Badgley Mischka 2013 collection was inspired by the 1935 film version of A Midsummer Night Dream, but I see tons of Gatsby inspired looks in this wonderful collection. This enchanted collection is truly fit for a fairytale queen, and reminds me that spring is still here. Enjoy the last days of spring while you can because summer will be here soon.
Here are some of my favorite looks
