“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” – Oscar Wilde

It is very important to always be yourself.

It is equally as important to believe in yourself.

The Problem

I’m consistently see girls who lack self-confidence. I am here to let you know you are beautiful and awesome the way you are. I can’t stress this enough!

You should always embrace who you are by being strong and showing the world what you have to offer. Don’t be afraid to stand out in the crowd and do what’s right or what makes you happy. Don’t participant in activities that feel wrong or make you unhappy. Don’t act like someone you are not and don’t let a friend sway you to do something that’s not you.

If you struggle with confidence, then now is the time to take control and take action in discovering who you are. You may be thinking, “Jae, that is easier said than done”. Well, I am here to tell you by taking a few beginner steps toward believing in yourself, you can conquer your lack of self.

Let’s Begin by Being Yourself

I challenge you to write at least five character traits that make you who you are. It can be a personality trait, a physical feature, your taste in fashion, a sport or activity, a goal, etc. After you write out your list, step back and read it again. Begin to embrace who you are and own it. Be proud of your uniqueness and be positive about what you like.

I would really love for you to share your uniqueness with me. Posting your best qualities can help spark others to think about their own. You can tweet me @ JAE_Blog, email them to me jae@jaetaft.com, or leave them as a comment below. I will be posting mine to twitter and this blog.

Really take the time to think about what makes you and embrace it.

If you take anything from this just challenge I would hope that you understand “You” are who defines who you are, not anyone else.

Just be “You”!

Much Lovemuch love,
Jae

I’m Possible

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I’m possible!”

I really love this quote by Audrey Hepburn. Too often many young women aspiring a dream believe things are impossible because it might seem hard at first.

Sometimes we give up too easy and don’t realize the goal or dream we are striving for is right around the corner.

Always remember, anything is possible if you put your mind too it! You have more power to reach your dreams than you think.

Much Lovemuch love,

You Are Beautiful

“Beauty is being the best possible version of yourself on the inside” – Unknown

This quote is so right on because beauty is truly not all about looks.

You are Beautiful

You don’t have to be the prettiest or most popular girl in school for people to like and respect you. It makes me very sad when I read negative social media post girls write. Many times these posts are about how ugly they are, how fat they are or how some body part is out of proportion…Girls YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

If I could give you one piece of advice it would be to STOP putting yourself down and always remember to be your #1 FAN.

It is so true. You really do need to be more concerned about how beautiful you are on the inside. To me, being beautiful on the inside means:

  • Being genuinely nice to someone.
  • Being strong.
  • Being grateful.
  • Being positve.
  • Standing up for what is right.
  • Helping someone in need.
  • Being loyal and reliable.
  • Being a great friend.
  • Being inspiring.
  • Being caring.
  • Having good morals.
  • Being confident
  • Let’s take a closer look at one trait I believe is very important. That is being confident in your own skin. Confidence can go along way. If someone sees that you are confident good things can happen like, a lead role in a play or video, getting a job that many applied for, or making a spot on a high level team. Building your confidence is possible, but it may take a little work.

    If you have struggled or are struggling with being confident or believing you are beautiful and you want to share your story, send it to me. If you give me permission I will post your story. If you allow me to post your story, my guess is you will help someone just by sharing how you overcame your feelings about yourself or how you are currently dealing with it.

    Much Lovemuch love,
    Jae
