We all have those days. The days we feel like everyone is watching our every move. We feel like they are judging our outfit, hair, shoes….you name it.
But honestly I think what’s being “judged” is the way we are acting. When you feel like crap, don’t you think the world sees that something is off?
This morning as I was driving my oldest in to school, he turned to me and said he was nervous about going in. I of course asked why (fearing I wasn’t told about a test or something). But instead he told me that he was nervous his peers wouldn’t like his new haircut.
me: Do YOU like your new haircut?
him: Yes, I like it a lot.
me: Then why do you think others won’t?
him: I think because it is so different. It’s nothing like my old hair and I don’t want people to think I did something crazy.
me: Do YOU think you did something crazy?
me: Then what does it matter? You like it, you know I think you look awesome. Just own it bud. Walk confidently.
me: Seriously. When you step out of this car, walk right over to your line and tell yourself “dang, I look good!” When you are confident it shows.
He steps out of the car, looks back. I told him…..”dang dude, you look good!” He smiled, pulled his shoulders back and walked right over to his line. He looked as confident as you can. I saw him smile as a couple people came up to him telling him they liked his hair.
This is a reminder. As much for me, than anyone else. Feel confident momma. You look dang good, you work hard and you need to be to be happy with you!
