This weekend has turned out to be really busy despite the fact that I didn’t have any plans set up until last minute. I’ve decided to dress more confidently this month and wear clothes that will probably bring me more attention and compliments. I usually dress pretty modestly and comfortably in jeans, a t-shirt, and tennis shoes, but I’ve decided to switch things up a little.
On Thursday I wore flip flops/sandals and capris, with a nice top and jacket. I got a compliment on the jacket.
On Friday I wore shorts and a nice top with a big sparkly heart on it, and got a compliment on the shirt.
Saturday I wore a nice flowery top when I went out to breakfast with some friends, got a compliment, and I got asked to prom that morning too. 🙂
On Sunday(today) I wore a Marvel “I Need A Hero” shirt for WonderCon which I got some compliments on from superheros and Star Wars characters. I thought it’d be cool to dress up but didn’t decide to go until the day before so didn’t have time to prepare for that. I did ask many people for pictures though, something I would have been too shy to ask before. Everyone was really nice and happy to take pictures with me. It was awesome. 🙂
Right now I’m making gradual switches but eventually I want to try wearing some dresses and skirts to school and see how it feels when people note the difference. It’s not something I’m all that comfortable wearing to school and I think I’ll get a lot of attention from friends wanting to encourage me to keep wearing clothes like that, but it’ll be something to put me out of my comfort zone.
I was also thinking of doing some other things that will boost confidence, like exercising more, eating healthier, practicing positive self talk, and compiling a group of things (emails, comments, photos, cards) that make me feel happy and proud to be me. It should be a good month for building self-confidence!
