It’s hard to express love when you feel self-conscious. An inner monologue of doubt and second guessing really does a number on you.
Self-doubt and self-consciousness keep you from showing up, from saying the thing, from booking the gig, from going pursuing the opportunity.
With Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, Hallmark Day, whatever, around the corner, love and expressions of love are on the brain. Along with how to celebrate safely and still in style.
However you’re celebrating, dress up a little this weekend. Even if your dog is the only one who sees you and you’re the only one who appreciates it.
One of secrets to mastering personal style is that we’re all ultimately getting dressed to please ourselves. That anyone else loves or admires what we’re wearing is a bonus.
So, if you want to go all out, then go all out! I love this for you!!
Or if you’re more inclined towards old sweats day after day, try wearing something 5% fancier than you did last weekend. (More details here.)
No need to overthink.
It doesn’t have to take extra time. It doesn’t have to take extra effort. All it takes is a little bit of thought.
Expressions of love are hard when you feel self-conscious so ditch the self-consciousness. We need the love you have to give in the world.
And if you’re struggling ditching the self-consciousness, reach out for personal style coaching. It’s the fastest way I know to ground into how extraordinary you are and bring that confidence into your life on a daily basis.
Here’s to love inside and out.
