“You don’t find your worth in someone. You find your worth within yourself and then you find someone who is worthy of you. Remember that.”
I love slam poetry. One of my favorites is a poem called “Congratulations! It’s a Girl!” by Sabrina Benaim. The link will be listed below and you should definitely check it out!
I have noticed more and more these past few weeks the self-confidence I have gained, and I feel like it came out of no were! I’ve just been feeling myself more and more recently. In my uniform, in my workout clothes, whether I dressed cute or bummy. I’ve also been doing more shopping… I need to chill! I have been more into sneakers that I typically wouldn’t have really cared about, I am totally loving heels which is so weird because I have never been a heels kinda girl, and I am OBSESSED with jewelry. Mostly earrings because I wear the same necklace 24/7 and I typically wear the same set of bracelets, although I did get super cute new watch! AND, I love buying new underwear! I was shopping at Victoria Secret yesterday buying (more) new underwear when I saw a bin of bras on sale for $14. I have never bought a bra from VS before becasue they’re so expensive and I’m super cheap. But I got measured and found a SUPER cute pink and marron lacy bra in my size, so of course I had to get it. I wore it today and even though it was (obviously) under my shirt and nobody even knew about it except me, I was totally feeling sexy. And I was wearing yoga pants and a t-shirt. It feels good to feel good in something cute. Whether it be for yourself or someone else. (Also realized I picked up underwear that match the bra pretty well so that’s a double score). But anyway, it’s such a good feeling to be feeling myself more and more, especially since it’s something I have lacked for a very long time. I have been more into getting all dressed up and lookin cute and just having a good time! And I am so excited for the next few weeks and all the fun exciting plans I have that require getting all dolled up!
And this is sort of weird thing for me to talk/write about because it makes me a little bit uncomfortable. I have always lacked self-confidence for most of my life and it’s been a big insecurity of mine. To finally be at a place in my life where I am starting to break down those barriers is a wonderful feeling. It’s such a powerful feeling to find that confidence through yourself and not through the validation of others, whether that be a significant other, a friends, or even a family member. I still have a long way to go! I am not where I want to be but I am so thankful I am not where I used to be.
