“Nat, I’m so pretty!” I texted him with a giggle as I looked at my reflection in the mirror. It was a random message, but I felt this sudden urge to share my excitement with someone, and Nat was the first person who came to mind. He’s always been my go-to person to share things with. In fact, he’s the only person who knows everything about what’s happening in my life right now. Almost immediately, he replied, “Yes! I know,” followed by another text “Show me.” I couldn’t help but smile at his response.
Okay, before you jump to the conclusion, let’s take a step back and figure out why I’m feeling so damn good about myself. To be honest, this wasn’t something I felt often. Usually, I’m my own biggest critic and constantly nitpick at my flaws. Maybe it was because of the new dress I’m wearing or the fact that my hair’s finally behaving that’s making me feel so damn good—or maybe it’s just the simple act of telling someone how I feel about myself and having them agree. Either way, it’s got me feeling all kinds of confident. Well, we are going to talk about it today.
When you feel good, you look good, and vice versa.
Have you ever experienced a boost in confidence after taking care of your physical well-being? It certainly did wonders for me. Recently, I realized that I was so focused on perfecting my skincare routine that I had neglected my hair care, but after splurging on some new products and giving my hair the attention it deserved, I began to notice the difference. My hair started to look smoother and healthier, and every time I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I couldn’t help but feel more confident.
It’s important to note that feeling good about yourself doesn’t mean conforming to society’s beauty standards. It’s all about taking care of yourself and feeling comfortable in your own skin. When we prioritize our physical well-being, it positively affects our emotional and psychological well-being. It’s a holistic approach to self-care that is all interconnected. As the saying goes, “When you feel good, you look good, and vice versa.” So, take some time out for yourself and prioritize your physical well-being. Your confidence will thank you for it!
As we age, our body needs extra attention.
As we age, our bodies require more attention than ever before. This rings especially true when it comes to maintaining our physical appearance. For those who, like me, care deeply about their skin, hygiene, and overall appearance, it can become more expensive to maintain our looks as we get older. However, I believe that investing in yourself is always worth it, regardless of the cost. I’m scared of getting older, but I strive to age gracefully. So, I don’t mind spending money to achieve that.
Never be afraid to invest in yourself. Indulge in that face mask, buy those high-quality beauty products, try out a new hairstyle, and keep up with your hygiene routine. When you prioritize your physical self-care, you’ll be amazed at the positive impact it has on your confidence and overall well-being.
I upgrade myself every single day.
As I said, I’m my own biggest critic. I think it’s very important to look good, be in a good manner, uphold strong moral values, and know how to behave in different places and around different people. I never allow myself to feel comfortable with where I am; I am always seeking new knowledge and skills to upgrade myself. The more knowledgeable I become, the more confident I feel.
In the past, I liked to wear revealing clothing that showed too much of my skin and sometimes acted inappropriately without even realising it. However, I have since upgraded my appearance and behaviour to be more classy and elegant. I’ve educated myself on etiquette and even enrolled in a class that taught me how to dress and behave elegantly, practice proper table manners, and present myself with grace under all circumstances. I want to keep being a high-value woman, and to that end, I will continue to educate myself and adopt a self-respecting way of living.
As I told Nat recently, “I will behave like a real princess,” and I intend to stick to that. This etiquette knowledge has transformed me into a completely different person and has positively impacted all aspects of my life, including the types of people I choose to surround myself with. Manners are the most important quality in someone. In this matter, I am extremely picky about whom I want to hang out with.
