Let’s dig deeper?

“Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’ — not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.” –Emma Stone

Unafraid to be herself?

When I read this quote it really struck me. I love Emma Stone. She is so cute and funny, it seemed perfect that she was the one who had said these words. This in fact is the one thing almost everyone agrees is the single thing that is attractive in another human being. Seemingly, not directly based directly on how someone looks. Is confidence REALLY the key?

What about the very fine line between confidence and arrogance? When is it genuine vs. put on? How do we learn these things, then teach them to our kids?

Confidence?

I guess today I’m not writing a blog post as much as I feel I might be researching for a juicy one!

What makes you feel confident?

Is there a time when your confidence was shining through?

How do we gain this?

What are your thoughts??

    I guess I felt confident when I was just on vacation and rode a bike for the first time in 3 years, (I had surgery, then back troubles, etc.) I forgot my underwear! hehe. So ended up getting something in the store that was way too big. It came out over my pants. I looked ridiculous. The old me would have been self conscious everytime my underwear was showing. But I was so grateful to be riding that bike, I loved my middle aged body with all its hot flashes and love handles. I felt like a warrior, a triumphant one. I am just grateful to be! After a lot of medical stuff & depression, this was such a welcome moment. I enjoyed that bike ride way more than anything I had done in my twenties when my body looked so much prettier and I was more fit. I’ve decided to have more of those moments.
