One of the things that I pride myself on when it comes to this blog is being genuine and authentic. I am open and honest, and willing to share personal experiences from my life in the hopes of helping you. So, here I go again.
In about a month and a half, I will turn 24 years old. Though I’ve never been too serious about New Years’ Resolutions, this year I’m making a birthday resolution. I resolve to be more confident by the time my birthday rolls around at the end of August. Depending on your own experience with confidence, this may sound easy or difficult. For me, it will definitely be a challenge. I have always struggled with self-doubt and lacked faith in myself and my abilities. Until now, I thought I was okay being the quiet girl, but I’ve realized that my lack of confidence is holding me back. Enough is enough. I can’t keep writing about making every moment count, and enjoying every day, if I’m not doing it myself.
Of course, gaining confidence is an ongoing process, and I don’t expect to “complete” this goal in a month and a half. Instead, I’m hoping for noticeable progress. I am challenging myself to make significant changes, and I’ll admit that it’s a little scary. But, I want to be the best version of myself, and I know that this is what I need to do. So, with the help of some guide maps, and the support of loved ones, here I go.
I’m sharing this with all of you because I want to be living proof that change is possible. I want to show you that you can take on a challenge, even if you’ve been standing in your own way. I’m not sure how much of this journey I’ll be sharing with the blogosphere, but if all goes well, I’ll have one less wish to make as I blow out my candles on August 29th.
