@wwwlindadurbessoncom: What makes you a warrior is not the amount of battles you’ve won, but the ones you’ve lost. We don’t gain strength from our victories, but from the losses that have eventually made us overcome our own limits! Stay blessed! #GOodNight #lindadurbesson #onlinecoach #brushingmyteeth #personaltrainer #abs #tired #sorefromheavydeadlift

8 Ways to Build Self Confidence

psych-facts:

onlinecounsellingcollege:

1. Dress Sharply: Although there’s more to us than the way we look dress and look, it can greatly affect the way we feel. When we think we don’t look good we often feel less confident. That changes how we act and interact with other people.

2. Increase your pace of walking: People who walk quickly usually look more confident. They have places to go; they have people to see; and their life is interesting and fast paced.
3. Good Posture:
Slumped shoulders are a signal of lack of self confidence. But if you always stand up straight, and you look straight ahead up, then you look more powerful and confident.

Typically, people who exercise, start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. Exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change.

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.

I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.

It is a choice.
It is simple, not easy.
It will be difficult but I will be patient.

I will practice self care and acceptance.
I will learn to be gentle with myself.
I will give my body what it needs.
I will not make excuses,
And I will not hide.

I choose to recover.
This year,
I am choosing me.

You can look in the mirror and find a million things wrong with yourself. Or you can look in the mirror and think “I feel good, I have health and I’m so blessed. I don’t need to be perfect. I’m doing just fine”.

she’s not perfect;
no
but when we’re lying down
on our bed
and she fits my limbs
so easily
when she’s dragging her lips
on my neck
even in her sleep
i guess i’m allowed to boast
that she’s pretty
damn close
