Hello Everyone,

I hope you all had a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving!  Even though I wasn’t with family, I truly felt loved and very blessed for the relationships I’ve created in this new city.  This has to be the fourth year I haven’t been home and each year I am able to get through because of the people around me. I even tried something new… I cooked my own mini dinner (And it was pretty good)!

With the Holiday season here, there is so much to be thankful for (and that I am).  But lately, I’ve felt my confidence dwindling from me.  I wanted to have a check in with my readers and ask for your help! What are some things you do to help yourself get past your insecurities?  I’ve always admired those who were confident and comfortable in their own skin, but I’m sure even those people have their days.  I’m loving who I am and who I’m becoming as a person and as an artist, but why do I still look at all of the flaws I have?  

Throughout my day, I repeat these words to myself:

“You are confident and you are beautiful. you deserve to be here. you are you! Love you! Be You!”

What else can a girl do to truly be in the moment and not in her head?  Isn’t that what being an artists is all about?  Let me know what you think. I’d love to hear from you on how you get through your days.  This is a positive space!  Let’s share!  

Con·fi·dence (Noun) - a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities

Dancingly yours,
