Confidence. Do you have it?! YES, you do "Confidence portrays so much beauty and strenghth, yet somehow always seems just out of reach to achieve." Why is it so hard to believe that you deserve it or maybe you just fail to see what you have to be confident about.

I believe that we each have something unique that you shouldn't ignore, be proud of the things you can take ownership over. It may be in you ability to dance, sing, cook, or make someone laugh and it even simply showing love and compassion to those that are important to you in everyday life, your street smarts, or your book smarts. It could be absolutley anything.

Do not forget your strengths by focusin on weaknesses, because yes, we all have those to, but the challenge is to not let those weaknesses define who you are. Your STRENGTHS define who you are.

YOU are stronger than you think, you might doubt that, but you have the power to change everything. You have the power to decide first thing in the morning when you wake up,
only you have the power to make your life into something positive and uplifting.

Be confident in everything you can do! You must trust yourself and the changes YOU can make. It may be with family members and friends, personal relationships, and especially yourself.
We all start somewhere. I know I did. I know I couldn't keep just half living my life, things weren't going to change if I didn't think positive and feel confident about my strengths and ability I have. Everyone has something to share with others. You have to DECIDE NOW to be the best person you can be and be confident about it. Through that decision will lead to a healthier and happier you.
