How I Am Going To Become More Confident In 2018
I am so envious of girls that look so confident and rock anything from fashion posts to creating videos for their content. I have been so worried about what other people think, I have decided that this year I will change that. I want to be able to talk on Instagram lives and show my face on Instagram and my blog more. It is my baby after all and I am so impressed with my little space on the internet that I shouldn’t feel ashamed of having it, but I always get embarrassed when someone I know talks about my blog. Babe, you gotta own it, it has been something you have worked really hard on, so be proud of it. I want to wear clothes that are out of my comfort zone, I think I have mastered the art of dressing in jeans or leggings. I want to be the best version of myself without caring what anyone thinks because this gal is bringing it this year #FakeItTillYouMakeIT.
I have had a lack of confidence for as long as I can remember. At school I was known as the ‘quiet girl’ and only spoke to the people that I felt comfortable around. Although, that has now changed and if you spoke to my friends about what I am like now, they would definitely not say quiet! I still find it difficult to talk in large groups and doing presentations for university was my idea of hell. I am better now from going through that, but there are still areas of my life that I want to get more confident in.
Getting My Own Fashion Style
I have the worst body confidence in the world and I think this reflects in the clothes that I wear. Sticking to mainly leggings and jeans because I am worried about ‘looking fat’ which even writing that makes me cringe so badly- yes I know it sounds ridiculous. I want to get out of my comfort zone and wear that bloomin great mini skirt that I bought last week of BooHoo because it looks fantastic!
Try Videos On Instagram
Although YouTube is way out of my comfort zone at the moment, I think I will start being comfortable with doing regular Instagram stories. I love the idea of connecting with your audience and video is a great way of doing so. I am just going to start ad I know it will take time to get used to it, but the support so far has been incredible, so thankful for that!
Talking To New People
I have been working n this already and trying to talk to new people every day at work because you never know what valuable information you can learn and use in your working and personal aspects of your life. You are never too old to learn new things and use experiences of others to influence your own decision or learn from their mistakes. I like the idea of speaking to new people but I find it hard to start the conversation-probably because I hate small talk- but I am determined to put that aside and try and create connections with different people.
