    Confidence Is Not.

    Everyone is attracted to confidence. However, I believe that confidence is often misunderstood. My theory on confidence is developed from a lifetime of sport participation and a coaching career. Here is in my opinion what true, useful confidence is not: 1. Confidence is...

    Claimin' It

    Took a while for me to get to the point of claiming this trait. I always knew it was in me. I'm just a confident girl with a purpose in her soul and I'm so happy to have it. In truth, it was always there, but for a long time I couldn't see it. I'm just so happy that now I'm able...

    Human Rel. W/ A Predator

    I was coerced into talking to this guy once. He seemed like a kind, intelligent man as well as attractive (from an old photo, rolmao) until I met the dude. He was the biggest dork I have ever met in my life but there was something attractive about him that caught my eye. He was...

    The Line

    There is a line that I walk and it's a fine one. It's the line between being cocky and having self confidence in who I am and have become. There is a huge difference between the two.

    I Have Major Confidence!

    I am brave. I am strong. I am smart. I am a well-intentioned person. I lisp when I make the "s" sound a little bit but that's me - I used to hate it, now I own it. My hair curls - I used to hate that, and now I own it, too! I have curves. I do well in school. I pay no attention...

    Trying to be more so.

    I want to be more confident and brave when I talk to people. To not feel scared or worried as to what will be thought of me. I have made a little progress, but still have a long journey ahead of me. I can feel at times that it is nothing but a dream and it all is futile. I...

    I Love Being Me And Sharing Myself With The World.

    For years I had a very low self-esteem and was even suicidal. I starved myself to get my own approval but could not get thin enough. I worked hard to acheive great things but none of my achievements helped me love myself. They only set me up to have to do something greater the...

    it's to stand up for who you are and not who others want you to be.

    I might wear makeup and spend a significant

    amount of time fine tuning my appearance, but I don't think confidence is all about looks. I am happy with who I am as a person and proud of the amount of things I've achieved in my short life.

    Loosing My Fears And Finding Myself

    For as long as I can remember, I doubted myself. My worth, intelligence, my beauty. I had lived in poverty, loved in stupidity and allowed those around me to bring me down. Then it changed. Like a slap in the face! I am what I make of me! It is my choice to be a success or...

    It's Pretty Natural.

    I think I've been blessed with natural confidence. Of course, in the beginning, it didn't really show. As I was growing up, I was new to the world so I was obviously naturally precautious and nervous about most things. But now I'm older, I'm finding my place, I have a cool hobby...

    It's Not In You Yet

    I don't think you can be born with confidence. I think you gain it. Confidence is sooo sexy and I'm really happy to have gotten to the point of believing in me.

    I like when a chubby woman is proud of her size and isn't afraid to show it off. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and there is nothing more beautiful than a confident woman.
