Hello!And welcome back to the blog of Amber and my ramblings that I know you all love secretly 🤣
So, as you’ve guessed, today’s post is going to be about the little things in life, the things that are small but have a big impact on your confidence and your emotions.
Well, I’m not the most confident person in life. I find eye-contact and personal questions awkward and embarrassing as I seem to struggle to find the words to say what I’m thinking or feeling without worrying about people judging me. Now, this post was inspired by Maggie @ Dreaming Of Guatemala and her incredible blog posts that inspire me every day that I’m not the only one 😂
A lil’ story to share with y’all…
Lately, I’ve been noticing my appearance a lot more, feeling a lot self-conscious about how I’m acting and how I’m looking (damn that pimple that will never go away… 😂) So, I’ve been focusing on my hair, as it’s something I don’t really invest a lot of time in / take a lot of notice of *same ponytail everyday*
A couple of days ago, I was plaiting my high ponytail and suddenly I found myself twisting it into a bun and I looked up and it looked really nice. It was one of the few hairstyles that actually look nice on me. I framed my face with some hair on the side that I’m growing (my forehead looks big otherwise 😂)
Anyways, let’s get to the point. So, when I got to school, lots of people said ‘Wow, Amber, you really suit that braided bun!’ or ‘I love your hair, it looks great!’ And I felt soo good. I felt on top of the moon, like I was a force to be reckoned with. I felt confident, beautiful and great! I don’t feel like that very often. And I realised how easy it is to make someone’s day. How easy it is to bring a smile to someone’s face, to make them realise how beautiful they truly are, inside and out, to make them feel confident and beautiful. Because we are all beautiful. Just some people like to flaunt it more than others.
So, from now on, instead of worrying people will think I’m judging them when I say ‘Ooo, I love your shoes!’ I’m going to tell people, tell them when I like their hair, when I like their make-up, because people need to know. Ir’s self-motivating and sometimes it can get you through the day just knowing that somebody out there likes you.
So, interesting subject there. A bit of food for thought for y’all.
