Wear the Hat!
Updated: Nov 19, 2020
This is a fun, yet important post about feeling ok and confident to be YOU! I have often struggled with feeling pretty or feeling like I look in-shape enough. I have lost pounds and gained pounds and am a work in progress to create the healthy balance I am seeking. I just keep working on it and do not beat myself up when I eat a brownie or have a hot cocoa. So far this year, with a goal of losing 50 pounds, I have lost 23 and will keep at it.
One accessory I have always wanted, but never had the confidence to wear, was a hat. I have a lot of hats- baseball hats, ski hats, engineer hats and rancher hats- but I have never worn most of them in public.
This fall, I decided to get the confidence up enough to wear my rancher hat. I live in an area where there is not a lot of rancher hat wearing, so undoubtedly it would likely bring attention to myself, which is something I prefer not to do. On the other hand, I really like the hat. Having my doubts, I asked my husband, and without hesitation, he said with a big smile, "Wear the hat." Without knowing it, he gave me a huge boost of confidence, and I wore the hat. Wearing the hat sparked a happiness, a confidence, an acceptance of myself that I had not felt in quite awhile. I struggle to feel good about me sometimes and it was so encouraging to feel beautiful inside and out!
Now my moment was a hat, what is your moment? What can you encourage yourself to do today that you have not done before but have always wanted to?
