Many people are thinking about the year ahead, making promises to themselves, hoping for change, wanting a better lifestyle and perhaps attaining to be a better version of themselves.
I personally find making ‘new years resolutions’ a waste of time, we often set ourselves, unrealistic, unattainable goals and two weeks in find ourselves rather disappointed and disillusioned.
Instead, I believe we should try to create good habits. It has been said that you can create a habit in 21 days. Continually doing something for 21 days should stick and therefore become lifestyle! So, try changing one thing at a time, maybe change one thing in your life each month, then perhaps at the end of 2013 you can look back with great accomplishment knowing you’ve really achieved something.
This way, changing something 100% rather than a half hearted flop is far more beneficial!
I would also like to encourage you with how you feel about yourself. You are one of a kind, no one else on the face of Earth is like you! So embrace it, own it and be confident in it.
We can often use our clothes as a way to hide, blend in or feel accepted, I want to encourage you to not hide behind the walls you create for yourself, the world will only respect you as much as you respect yourself.
Perhaps this year, you can choose to be a little braver with your style choices and reflect your individuality. You may wear a colour you never dared to before, it may be a chic neck scarf, a bowler hat, that pair of shoes you always say “I could never wear those!” No longer be the one who says “that outfit is only great on her” but be the person in that outfit!
Believe in yourself, educate yourself, have more fun, laugh more, read more… here’s to a new confident you!
