There are few things more beautiful on a person than confidence. Women who wear it radiate strength, passion and conviction. It contributes more to a look than a designer label or the perfect diamond. When a woman knows who she is, why she is, and what she’s supposed to do, she may be dressed in thrift store specials and be absolutely gorgeous.
A confident woman is not afraid to be herself. Whether she is plain, simple, and beautiful or flamboyant and fabulous, the key is that she knows who she is. She understands her purpose and her gifts. She knows that there are certain things only she can contribute to this world, at this time, in this place.
She knows her style. It doesn’t matter whether she prefers zebra stripes and pink fur, or to be cloaked in grays and subtle greens. Whether she likes volleyball or Victorian teas. Shopping or hiking. Or all of the above. What is most important is that she is herself.
That means stretching and stepping out. So if you’re supposed to be on the front lines, be there. Don’t step back. If you are blessed with supportive skills, be the best supporter you can be. Expand your skills. Celebrate the talents and experiences God has blessed you with.
