You Are

You are capable of greatness, if you set your mind on the right path. You are unique, and believe it. You are talented, not always in the same areas as others, but you have abilities that sometimes not everyone has, be proud of it. Sometimes it is difficult to be confident, I know it is for me, but take it one step at a time, and don’t be too hard on yourself. As this challenge comes to an end, I’m reflecting on all the things I wrote and I can’t believe I was able to do it! If I can write that much, so can you! Please, do not lose hope when you have nothing to write about. You know, we all need a moment of silence in our lives. It’s best to post something you’ll be proud of, than something you’ll regret. If you have nothing to post, how about sharing a video you found that meant something to you? Remember, You are in control and You are the only person who can share about who You are with others. Why not come up with your own small challenge? You’ll be surprised at the results 🙂

Daily Prompt: You confident thing

The daily post asks: You sexy thing: Tell us about your best confidence outfit. Don’t leave out the shoes or the perfect accessories.

 

When I read the question, I giggled like a kid. It just caught me off-guard. Usually the daily post will have a different word usage.

For many years, I wished I had the confidence I had when I was little. But, not anymore! My outfits do not contribute to my confidence. I honestly can feel ‘sexy’ or ‘hot’ or whatever you want to call it, wearing sweats and a bunnyhug (I have friends from Saskatchewan). One could have the sexiest outfit in the entire universe – providing aliens wear clothes – and still have low self-esteem. I feel good in anything; dresses, heels, flats, sweaters, jackets, raincoats, etcetera.  There should not be just the one outfit that makes you feel good, because there isn’t one for every moment in your life. Keep it that way, do not let clothing define your confidence, but shine through it and make others see your soul before the outfit.

This is me throwing a performance for my grandparents when I was a kid.

Countless Power – A to Z Challenge

Today’s A to Z challenge letter is ‘C’

Countless Power

“Cannot” is a word we frequently use, sometimes when we shouldn’t. There are times we fail to see our “Countless power,” and I’m not talking about magical powers or a variety of sorcery. I’m talking about the ability to see our capabilities as human beings and as ourselves; it is a tool that we can use to heal the rough patches we must face. Realistically speaking, we will be led through unwanted roads, where we will need to rely on our inner power to escape. As it pertains to all of us, there is no way to predict such circumstances; however, why are we so fearful and non-confident?

We mustn’t be, we are warriors fighting for our happiness, and everyday we write our own melodies and stroll through our self-made routes. It’s time we  believed in ourselves, not because life is too short, but because we were born to be confident in your own skin and personality. It is not our fault for the anxiety inflicted in you by evildoers, but it is our duty to ensure we seek our freedom. We have countless reasons to move forward, and countless “gadgets” inside of us. For example, the gift of laughter; there is always something that makes us laugh, and it is true that laughter is the best medicine. Self-doubt only ignites unworthy and unloving feelings, and we must remember that just by fact we want to do good in this world, is enough reason to believe that we are good.

Struggles is what makes us stronger, and we cannot avoid it.You shouldn’t use the word ‘cannot’ so often, but you should still use it. Why? Because you learn from it, and it gives you a chance to explore new adventures, only as long as you’re not hurting yourself and others. Say, “I cannot” and add “but I will try”. You never know what doors will open, unless you take one step forward and try. You can live to laugh, and love to live, the roads can be everlasting.

Daily Prompt: The Great Pretender

You can read the daily prompt, right HERE.

They ask: Are you full of confidence or have you ever suffered from Imposter Syndrome? Tell us all about it. (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/prompt-the-great-pretender/)

I confess! I am confident most of the time, like today for example. I’m confident I’ll be tired, because my brain woke me up earlier than usual and did not let me go back to sleep. Consequently, I am confident I’ll be upset at my brain for the rest of the day – perhaps, forever. When I look into the mirror, I am confident, I look good, but not in a conceited way. But, then I look again and change my mind – the outfit wasn’t my best choice, my face looks different – what if I get wrinkles this year? I’m only 26. Thereupon, I get over it, I snap out of it. I remind myself that many people have no clothes to wear, so many people have illnesses, and here I am giving myself unnecessary heartache due to my sudden lack of confidence. I just can’t go there. I refuse to.

I am confident I will pick the right tea for tonight. I am not confident I’ll feel like eating chicken tomorrow. I am confident I won’t waste food and only buy what I need. I am grateful I can choose what I’m going to eat, and can satisfy my cravings. I am confident one day, if I’m to regain some sort of power, I will make sure those who can’t, can eat what they couldn’t.

I have my dream job, I am happy, I know I can do better each day, and I am confident I will succeed. Yes, of course sometimes when I fail, I tell myself I have failed in life; that I should bury myself under my bed sheets, and rock back and forth until an angel comes to my rescue. And then the angel will become flesh and we’ll marry and live in eternal happiness. I’m confident that won’t happen in its entirety (you know which part that is).

But, I am confident I will regain my confidence when I lack of it. Nobody is a failure, and nobody should think that of themselves. It doesn’t mean I won’t at some point, but we are all dealt different cards in life and therefore, have different strategies that we use to face our reality.

I am confident this prompt question SHOULD be asked to ourselves when we feel we have failed. I am thankful they asked it. I’m confident they have initiated a change towards goodness amongst other writers. I am confident they have inspired.

Listen to yourself, and not others. As long as you’re not hurting others or yourself, you’re free to fly into the world as you please, and with confidence.
