Confidence 3


No matter what a woman looks like, if she’s confident, she’s sexy”

― Paris Hilton


My husband and I just recently returned from a trip to South-Africa. While killing time waiting for our transfer from Washington back home to Ottawa, we started reminiscing about our trip. We had wonderful memories of barbeques with friends and family, hikes in beautiful spots with amazing views and family gatherings with “snoek” and prawns on the grill. However, we seemed to easily forget that this country has its fair share of political unrest and violence. How we remembered our trip depended pretty much on what color of shades we decided to wear when looking back at our vacation.

Then it hit me. Is that not how we often look at ourselves? Can you choose how you see yourself and refocus on the positives instead of the negatives and “by design” create confidence?

When patients come to see me at the cosmetic practice, I often ask them to identify the three things that bother them most when looking in the mirror. While these concerns are very real for a lot of women, I do think it is worthwhile to ask too what are the one, or two or three things you really like about yourself. And if you find it difficult, ask a friend or your spouse or maybe your mom. We all have beautiful attributes that we often ignore when focusing on the things that we are trying to change.

Give yourself a little love and recognize that you are beautiful too.

Here are 5 quick tips to become more confident

♥ Say “STOP” to your inner critic- that little voice inside your head that is telling you that you are not good enough or pretty enough or smart enough. Say stop and refocus on the positives

♥ Take a 1 min self-appreciation break and ask yourself what are 3 things you can appreciate about yourself. Are you perhaps thoughtful and caring, a great cook or can make people laugh?

♥ Write down 3 things you like about your body- nice calves, a strong healthy body, maybe beautiful nails or a smile that lights up a room?

♥ Go for good enough and replace perfectionism. How many perfect men and women do you really know? I know none. And you?

♥ Stop comparing your life, yourself, and how you look. Because you can never win. There will always be someone smarter, wittier, prettier, slimmer etc. Rather compare yourself with yourself and focus on your own achievements and how far you have come

Confidence is all about you and can only be found inside yourself!
