We often hear people saying things like “Be Confident!” but what does that really mean? to be confident means that we trust in someone of something. To be self-confidence means that we trust ourselves and our abilities. It means that we love ourselves, even if we are different from others. Each person is born unique and special. From the color of our skin, to the texture of our hair, to each individual fingerprint, and all the amazing talents we each possess, we are all perfect and we are all enough. Our uniqueness makes the world a colorful and beautiful place. Because we are each born unique and special, the worlds needs us exactly as we are. It is important that we recognize our own beauty and share it with the world because, without it, the world would be a sad and dull place. Take some time this week to appreciate all the things that make you, you. Make a list of your unique qualities and recognize the beauty of each. Never forget that your voice and your life matters!
