Confidence: A No Show

November 9, 2015

Lately, I’ve wanted confidence in an IV up my arm. Why am I so hesitant with every decision, every idea I have? These doubts just keep on piling.

This may not be a good idea.

I first made this draft last year. I had no clue where I was going with it- and really, it sounds like it would have been a bucket of negativity- but what struck me was how much my confidence has grown. It was fickle and tiny and hid away in fear every other day. Now, just a year in, my confidence has branched out, strong and definitely stable.

The end of last year was quite a roller coaster, but I pulled through. By the time January rolled in, I had realized an important hack. I’m not sure where I read it but I bet it was Tumblr. I imbibed it and lived by it since then.

It’s impossible to tell the difference between genuine confidence and faking it.

Which really just means picking up this simple habit.

Here’s Bucky’s stellar lesson. Repeat after him.

Yes, this post marks my return to book blogging. I missed this community and oh man, READING! I’m carving out some much needed reading time and requesting life for some downtime. (The Raven King is lying in my Kindle, glaring at me.) But till then, let me leave you with some more sparkly confidence.
