Start By Loving Yourself


START BY LOVING YOURSELF


At LASHOUT we are all about empowering women, giving them back their confidence and helping them feel beautiful, strong and capable. And although that may sound cliché – we really do not care. Because it is the honest truth: is there anything more aspiring than a woman who is proud and who has complete confidence in who she is?

Building confidence, and more so, self-confidence can be such a complex process. For some people It is a process that comes more naturally and for others not so much. No matter which one you are it is one of those things that does not happen overnight. It takes consistency, daily action, a lot of tears and thoughtful planning. But when you master it the benefit will outweigh the painful process tenfold. We thought we would give three tips on how women can take small daily actions to boost and grow their self-confidence:

• TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
“Make yourself a priority every once in a while. It is not selfish. It is necessary.”

When you look in the mirror and you feel good about yourself and how you feel in your own body – no matter what that is - you will be content. Learn to fall in love with yourself – that is not selfish, it is a confidence boost. We are allowed to want to take care of ourselves, and to work on the things that we have the need to change. Change is the only constant – and you can only grow when you move out of your comfort zone.

Do that thing that makes you feel beautiful: get that facial you wanted, wear that outfit that makes you feel sexy, spoil yourself with that manicure, strut your favourite pair of shoes, kiss your loved ones with your red lipstick and flutter your long lashes at everyone. Because if you are happy with yourself and feel taken care of – you will simply SHINE and GLOW with confidence.

• BE YOUR OWN CHEERLEADER
“Don’t look back, you are not going that way. You were born to be real – not perfect.”

There is nothing as important as being your own number one fan. Because if you don’t do it – who else will? We are so often our own biggest critics and the only way to change that and grow your self-confidence is to just simply STOP. Be sure to boost yourself on a daily basis. Speak words of success and life over yourself. Give yourself compliments and remind yourself of your best attributes. Have grace when you make mistakes and use it as an opportunity to grow.

When you feel like you are failing at this, get a tangible method that can help you facilitate this process: keep a thankfulness journal, stand in front of the mirror and compliment yourself out loud, leave sticky notes all over your home with positive quotes and challenge yourself daily to break the habit and chain. Heck – get a few pom poms and cheer out loud for every victory you have. Cause when we celebrate every small victory the build-up to the big success is so much more worth it.

• ACCEPT WHO YOU ARE
“She accepted who she was – and the game changed.”

At LASHOUT we are all about embracing who you truly are, and just loving yourself for it. We were created to be different, to stand out and to not fit the mold. Women are beautiful, powerful, sensual, fierce, smart, loving and caring and so special.

Self-confidence comes first from acceptance and self love.

Embrace your natural beauty, and your inner strength and work every day towards becoming the best version of yourself.
