In the past week I've had a few exciting things to share with all of you and the support and love everyone has shown me is truly so heartwarming. I remember a time where I used to be embarrassed to tell things about myself or even nervous to tell people who weren't bloggers about my space.
I'm a firm believer that lifting other people up helps lift your own personal spirits too. I love sharing in my friends' success and do that sort of ugly cry happy tear thing because I live for hearing about great things happening to good people.
I think a few years ago I would have hesitated to tell people about a career promotion, that I opened an Etsy shop, or did something amazing at work. I have come to realize that it's okay to be proud of yourself. How else can we make the world a better place if we don't give each other a high five for doing great things? There is far too much negativity in the world to not share when the big, awesome things happen.
I work hard. I dream big. I spend hours thinking about how I can create a better life for my family, myself and my make my future brighter, bolder and more adventurous. I deserve the right to be proud of anything I accomplish and that goes for anyone else out there doing the same thing. Hard work shouldn't go unnoticed so if you're a working professional, a stay at home mom, a student, a blogger or someone trying to make a name for yourself in this world--YOU should be PROUD of what you do, each and every day.
Self confidence is one of the most attractive characteristics you can own. Believe in yourself, and others will believe with you. Let's spend more time being good to ourselves so that we can help others be great too.
Go ahead and high five, fist bump or toot your own horn today--it's okay to be proud of yourself...always.
Dream big...go get 'em...and celebrate.
*PS- Sorry to anyone who's comments I can't get to on my blog yesterday. Apparently Disqus was working on and off throughout the day, and I can't see the one's who didn't comment through Disqus. I hope the problem doesn't continue today. XO!
