    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...

    Strength, Acceptance.

    I'm not confident in that "Look at me I'm a confident independent woman, and now get out of my way!" sort of confident.  No, no, it's different. I chose to add this to my experiences because for the first time ever, I feel okay about my life. I like my body. I like my...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    What is confidence? I think I have plenty,

    until I see what it means to exude confidence. It is portrayed in every step… even if it leads others down the wrong path. It is spoken in every word… in phrases that are not our own but valued as such for being delivered through our own breath. In this sense, confidence...

    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.

    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.
