It's Tuesday, which means I'm linking up with Laura for her Confident Twosday party. And this week is extra special, because she asked me to co-host! Whoo!
I've been thinking about confidence, since that's the whole theme of the linkup. I've never considered myself to be a super confident person, but I pretty regularly have people tell me I must be confident to wear whatever bright colors or crazy patterns. That may be a back-handed compliment, but I'll take it. The more I've thought about it, I guess I agree with them. I don't walk around feeling super confident all the time, but I also don't spend very much time worrying about my flaws.
It seems like there's a trend recently towards celebrating different body types, and I think that's good. What I don't like is that it sometimes swings too far, and we get into the "real women have curves" type comments. So I would like to say that yeah, sometimes real women have curves, and sometimes real women have angles, and sometimes we are short or tall or medium, or whatever. I don't buy into the "everyone is perfect" thing. I'm more on the "everyone has their own set of flaws" side of things. We've all got to work with what we've got. So I probably need to lose a few (well, more than a few) pounds, but right now I'm a little bit fat. And that's okay.
And here's a SUPER HELPFUL definition of "self confidence" from Merriam Webster: confidence in oneself. Wow, I never would have guessed that. Isn't there supposed to be a rule that you can't use the word to define itself? Doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of defining things?
Anyway, link up below! And I'd love to hear your thoughts about confidence!
