A great affirmation for the new school year.
Usually we see self confidence as creating an image or story of yourself consistently in your head to make yourself feel good. Then we struggle because we are constantly trying to keep that image almost like a mask. Sometimes this mask can let us down.
Quiet confidence is just accepting yourself, who you really are. You may experience vulnerability and uncertainty but once you overcome that you’ll be able to live without that image in your head and you’ll accept you you truly are.
Think of the feeling that the sun gives you. Awareness is that clarity feeling and compassion is the warmth.
