"As you become more clear about who you really are, you'll be better able to decide what is best for you - the first time around" Oprah

It was storming outside yesterday when I took these pictures. I don't know how I managed to take them in between the 2 huge storms but I pulled it off. Florida really has bi-polar weather. Recently, I was featured on you can Honey Andrade's blog. Click HERE to see it. I loved the question that was asked, and I wanted to post my response to it. Question: "You seem really confident with yourself and you really are the epitome of fearless but are there days/situations when you don't feel so good about yourself? What do you do to overcome that feeling?"

My answer: Believe it or not, as fearless and confident as I am, I am only human and do have some insecurities as well as regrets. As strong and confident as I want to be for my followers, I want them to also understand that they too can overcome any insecurities they have. Anyone who says they aren't insecure in some way are full of it. My past regrets and insecurities are what have made me as strong as I am today. There was a point in my life where I wasn't happy with myself. It took a lot of me time and it wasn't easy. It didn't happen overnight, I knew not to expect fast results. The best way I overcame insecurities is I changed what I wasnt happy with. If i couldnt change what I didn't like, then I changed my view or perception of it. For instance, if you don't like the way your life is headed, then ask yourself what goals, steps, and moves can I make to get where I want to be? Physically, there was aspects of myself I could and could not change. That is when you change your perception of beauty and learn to accept yourself. The definition of beauty is defined differently by every person. What I do to overcome any insecure feelings is remind myself I have so many positive things going for me and I didn't come this far to give up now. I look past insecurities of mine and try not to drown myself in regrets. Be sure to stay optimisstic, learn from every mistake, never doubt yourself. The best advice is your own, always push forward, always focus on the positive rather than the negative, and don't let other people or society define what beauty is for you. You're given a brain, think for yourself, don't let other peoples biased opinions define you as a person. Be sure to be yourself everywhere you go, don't be ashamed of who you are. It's easier to be yourself than anyone else. If you accept yourself, then other people will accept you too, if they don't then they dont need to be around. The way to stay confident is to find a purpose in life, a place where you feel comfortable at and comfortable with yourself. You know yourself better than anyone else, trust you. I never lose sight of my vision. This is how I have become so confident with myself. If you're confident with who you are on the inside, then it automatically shows on the outside. When you know who you are as a person and what you want out of life, confidence comes naturally.
