As promised in yesterday’s post, I wanted to dedicate today’s post to this quote:
“Self confidence is the rock solid foundation to a skyscraper of happiness”
It’s focused on something I know for a fact we ALL struggle with – self-confidence, body image, confidence. Everything about the movement falls in line with my whole “balanced” philosophy, too. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot more lately, very much along the lines of what my sister blogged about the other day.
And boy do I need to take a page from my own book today, especially around balance and confidence – as the quote I pulled from the Operation Beautiful book points out – self confidence is so deeply tied to happiness in life, it’s a shame when any of us let situations get the best of us, temporarily stealing our self confidence right out from under us.
And, like one of my favorite friends pointed out on her blog recently (tied to a very different subject entirely but totally applicable to anyone going through a difficult situation, big or small), sometimes what makes all the difference in the world, is simply a change in language, and therefore, in perception of that situation. Had never thought of it that way, funny how even just small changes can make all the difference in the world, huh?
With that – I’m off to re-build my skyscraper of happiness. Anyone care to join me?
