Ah yes..there’s nothing more comfortable than an old pair of jeans (preferably ripped), a T-shirt and flip-flops, standard issue for me. But, of course, some may argue sweatpants may be more comfortable. Lingerie is another item that’s comfortable, and gives you a feeling of being pretty, sexy and confident. Who knew a bit of lace and silk could make a person feel so good?
Being comfortable means many things to many people. For instance, relaxing at home with a cup of coffee and wearing your favourite pair of slippers, can be comfortable. Or, taking off shoes after walking for hours (especially in heels) is definitely comfortable. I suppose it’s all relative. Being comfortable makes us feel at ease, relaxed, happy and confident.
What about being comfortable in one’s skin, embracing your true self physically and mentally. I like to think of myself as a confident woman, taking life in stride, and yet, I have a vulnerable side, more so than I realized. That said, I have really stepped out of my comfort zone, as of late, having the nothing ventured, nothing gained, or YOLO attitude. Putting yourself out there is difficult, but being confident and putting yourself out there can make you feel comfortable. If you don’t take risks, you’ll always wonder, right? Reminding myself that this is not a dress rehearsal.
I often think of moments when I should have had the confidence to try something different, throwing my fears out the window. But I didn’t. Perhaps stopping myself because of rejection, not being good or pretty enough? Confidence is sexy. Straight up!
To be comfortable in your skin can be hard to do. We tend to go down the path of uncertainty, self-doubt and worry too much about what other people think. I’m guilty of this and trying hard to say forget about it! Instead, embrace your individuality, have fun, face your fears and do what makes you happy. Recognize your best qualities and remember that “confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can wear ” Bam! So if it feels good, wear it, and you’ll be able to rock everything else in your life too!
