Pillow Talk: Insecurities

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Believe it or not, there is a part of me that is insecure.  I'm also quite shy.  Some may disagree, as I tend to talk the head off of a fly, but it's true.  The cool thing is that I'm not afraid to admit it, but on the contrary it still exists.

So let's talk about insecurities:

As a child, I was a bit reckless lol.  As a result, I ended up with a busted lip, after a small accident. The doctors proclaimed that my lips would be normal after surgery. But I have a small "bump", where the operation was performed.  I was teased a bit and in fact created the habit of biting or hiding my lip when close to someone.  It may seem minor, but it's one of my insecurities.

Recently, while getting lost in New York, my Uber driver and I were talking about my passions and goals.  Upon our discussion, I was inspired to find a way to embrace my insecurities.  I know, I know, how could a 18 minute ride, become so inspirational?

Here's how:

No matter who you are, there is something about yourself that you may not like, or that you feel that you aren't confident about.  Usually, we try and hide our "flaws".  We vocally talk about how we embrace them, but don't necessarily show it.

With that being said, I was inspired to embrace my insecurities by projecting my beauty in a way that will influence me to remove my mask of embarrassment.  But how?


Tune in tomorrow, as we discuss a challenging way to fully embrace our insecurities, confidently!
