“The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence.”
Are you a confident person? I can be, depending on the subject. This editorial of Zendaya by Mario Testino for Vogue July 2017 had me thinking about confidence. She was able to confidently stride into Disney offices when she was 16 years old and demand that her character be both athletic and intelligent. In addition, she wanted the show to portray a family of color. I love that she knew her values and her own worth and was able to convey that to her company.
I can be confident in my skills and my tastes. For instance, I like to (half) joke with my husband that my style and taste in design are better than his style. While I like to make fun of him in this arena, I really do have a better eye for colors, patterns, and putting designs together. However, I am less confident with my body. I’ve always been a sloucher and sink into myself. I also don’t love taking pictures of myself, but have been getting better at that through the years. After all, confidence is also something I want my kids to cultivate and practice as well. How do you improve your confidence?
Have a lovely week!
