Just another beautiful day I get to be inspired!
Sometimes we all need a little help with our self-esteem. Having a group of supportive friends in your quest to live a remarkable life can really assist in living the life you once thought wasn’t possible.
Throughout my life, other women have been the ones that have loved me when I couldn’t love myself. This is my way of paying the love forward while helping a group of amazing children I wasn’t able to help after my miscarriage. Mision Mexico under the care of Pam and Alan Skuse has helped over 250 children. Therefore 25% of profits from the afternoon tea will go to making those children smile.
Looking forward to this wonderful event! Hope to see as many of you there as possible.
We all know someone with amazing self-esteem and elegance. She is the women that walks into a room and all people notice her and she doesn’t do it by tweaking or wearing a skimpy dress or being loud and obnoxious. She is the one who is dressed so that it flatters her figure (no matter what her figure is) and has a beautiful, kind demeanor.
That woman is generally not me! I now have much better self-esteem than I ever did in my 20’s. I am sure something happens as a women approaches 40. Ok that is a few year off for me but I am turning 37 in about 6 weeks. As I get older I have become far more comfortable in my own skin – even if it is fairly well tattooed.
Though I now feel an intense desire to become more elegant, in my own eccentric and hippy manner.
My self-esteem doesn’t come from other people, though the people I confide in and socialise with certain help in not damaging my self-esteem.
Self-esteem is an inside job a vast majority of the time. When you get sick and tired of being sick and tired you want to change from the status quo. Over the years I read books, changed my interests (generally to whatever someone else told me was good) and even tried to be a blond for a while but these did not help my self-esteem at all.
Note to self: You look so much better as a natural brunette than you ever did as a blond!
Over the years I have developed some personal strategies that I employ to ensure my self-esteem stays relatively high. I don’t always achieve them as it’s progress not perfection that one should be aiming for.
1. Dress and Bearing:
4. Speaking and Manners:
My favourite self-esteem strategy without fail is to stop comparing!
5. STOP COMPARING
There are many different ways of increasing and maintaining your self-esteem, these are just some of the ones I use. Whilst I also said this was an inner job, surrounding yourself with other women and men that are working towards better self-esteem or who already have high self-esteem!
If none of these tips helps you feel better please seek professional help. Don’t be ashamed, many people seek professional help every day for any number of things. Self help though a professional is no different to taking your car to a mechanic if you know nothing about engines! Sometimes we all need a little help.
Oh and don’t forget to smile! It could brighten someone else’s day!
