Making my living as a blogger means I pose for photograhs…a lot. Being in front of a photographer is like second nature to me now, but it wasn’t always that way. Back in the day, smiling for the camera was the last thing I wanted to do. You see, I was blessed with a tiny mouth and too many teeth, so I had a bit an over crowding situation going on during my childhood.
A less than perfect smile caused me to have too many self conscious moments. These moments could have been spent enjoying experiences and trying new things, versus simply trying to hid my smile. Thankfully, after I got my teeth straightened when I was older, my self confidence bloomed. I’m certain I wouldn’t have the career that I have today without my self confidence! So, I’m here today, courtesy of Invisalign, to share what that confidence has done for me…
And that confidence has spilled over into other aspects of my life. I no longer fear meeting new people. In fact, I revel in it. I’m a fierce advocate for my children. I have no trouble speaking my mind when I’m passionate about something. And going back to my career, I take fashion risks that I probably wouldn’t take if confidence was an issue.
Take leggings for instance…There was a time when I thought leggings were for unfashionable moms. Fast forward a decade and I’m rockin’ leggings on the regular. Hopefully, I’m not that unfashionable mom I feared becoming. Haha!
