I'm not Conceited. I'm Convinced!

A friend of mine told me the other day that what she really liked about my was how funny I am and how confident I am about myself.

This is funny because I tend to look at myself in the mirror and LAUGH sometimes. But that's neither here nor there, so moving right along to the story at hand....

But the reason she says this is because we're friends and when we are together, well... I tend to express to her how absolutely HAWT I am. I mean, I do that with all of my friends. I do it even more with my family. It's like a competition with my family and me.


Quite frankly, I think I win that one, hands down.

Just as I do with the who's the best looking sibling and who's the favorite child.

I. win. period.

So anywho, she's one of those wives that would freak out if her husband turned his head in the direction of another female. One that goes crazy if he gets a call from a female co-worker.

I told her that I've never been like that. I told her that I have no concern of my husband looking at other chicks because I am WAY hotter than any of those chicks he works with. My way of thinking is that I'm a boatload of beauty. And I like to think that there are few people in the world who can compete.

Sounding a little shallow? Okay, so I'm really not all that confident deep inside. I mean, there might actually be one or two chicks out there that can give me a run for my money. But, thanks to my dad, I was brought up with WAY too much confidence in myself and it isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I'm NOT Conceited. I'm Convinced.

That's the model that my dad always taught me to live by.

So yes, I do think that I am all that and YES I will raise my daughter and sons with the same kind of confidence that I was raised with. That way, no one can ever break you down if you believe that you are truly fabulous.... as do I!

Go' head on mama!! Tell 'em! I love it. There is nothing more beautiful/sexy/amazing in a person than confidence and its sooo important these days with so many messages out there trying to tell us what and who we all should be. When you know your worth, you are truly unstoppable. Kudos to your dad for instilling that logic early on... and for that lesson to come from a daddy... priceless!

Um, hello and hell yes! I firmly believe that people who feel beautiful do beautiful things, they shine from within and illuminate those around them! Your dad knew what he was doing! Bravo!
