How to Feel Beautiful About Yourself

It is easier said than done, and it always is. The thing about being able to feel beautiful about yourself, is that you have to be able to have the confidence to actually do it. You have to be able to feel like you are, not that you're supposed to be, or that you used to be.

When we were teenagers, we tried new things every time. New clothes, new hair, and even new stuff. We experimented almost everything back then, a few were just more daring than others. I even had a ritual of "unpacking" my closet and try new looks with my old clothes. I'm quite proud to say that I still do that until now.

Sometimes we can be too hard on ourselves, and we actually label the word "boring" upon ourselves. Why is that? Seriously, when was the last time you ever tried a new outfit that's completely different than the rest of your closet? If you eyes look away even for just a second to think, that means it must be quite a long time ago. This also holds true to myself, sometimes I get too caught up in things and forget to take care of myself.

I remember Neil Patrick Harris, the star of the hit comedy series How I Met Your Mother, once said that people get attracted to individuals who are different. In my opinion, this "difference" can come in many ways. Look is the one most people aim for, but there is something beneath that can make greater impact.

How about confidence? Sounds familiar, probably because we've been hearing it since we were younger than toddlers. Having just the right amount of confidence is the key. It's the golden egg of beauty, in exaggeration. Have too much and you're a snob, have too little and you'll be easily jealous on others. When we have a healthy self esteem of ourselves, of how we look, how we talk, how we walk, people tend to notice the small things, and create a larger image in their own head that you are a confident person.

When people already conclude in their minds that you are confident, they will instinctively follow your lead, they believe what you say, they admire what you do, what you wear, and everything else. That's why we admire celebrities, we believe in motivational speakers, and we trust our doctors. They have confidence in what they do. They admire themselves in a healthy way. They feel beautiful, therefore they look beautiful.

We can all start by making small changes. Just some really small changes. How about straightening your back when you walk? After you've done that just fine, try to speak more clearly, be crisper in your words. If you're able to do both, you can start changing the way you look. When was the last time you have totally different hairstyle? Men might want to try something neat, and women might want to try having brave short hair. If that shirt looks bad on you, don't force yourself to wear it, try something else that you'll be comfortable in. The more comfortable you are with the way you look on the mirror, the better confidence you will have.

Have fun being new!
