Motivational Monday

Hi dolls!

Another start of the week, another motivation boost post! :)

For this weeks quote I chose something that's really close to my heart. Because I have been in situations in which I have needed to overcome my insecurities and shyness. I might not appear as the shyest person, but in past I was extremely shy (teenage years), I was very insecure. But when I started studying in high school I somehow slowly overcame my insecurities and I have been building up my confidence since then. Though, even right now I don't think that I am as confident as I could be.
For example, I remember I had a really big crush on my current boyfriend, before we were dating (he actually had a crush on me as well! :D ). I remember how much I wanted to talk to him and make him notice me. I am very talkative with strangers or with people whose opinion isn't that important to me, you could even call me a social butterfly in those situations, but when I like somebody I want to hide under my shell and hope that they would notice me. But I guess that's not how it works, right?

So you might ask what happened? I gathered all my strengths and just started slowly chatting with him, at first I tried to be casual and ask about homework or university related stuff (we are studying together), then we appeared to be in the same party, so I snatched him up and we had the greatest convo ever, we found out we have a lot in common. Anyways now he is my boyfriend for over a year now.

But of course, love is not the only place where I have to put my brave face on.  Job interviews, public presentations ( not the small ones, but with more than 50 people), new unexpected situations that bring me out of my comfort zone and so much more.
So, even though, I am scared, I want hide in my shell- at the end of the day I know it will be worth it! 

Have a superb week!
Maddie

  10. Lovely post. I am shy, but when I force myself out of my shell, the payoff is always worthwhile! It gets easier even if you have to force it at first.

  16. Tieši tā! Reizēm mēs apmulstam vai sakautrējamies būt paši, bet ir situācijas kur mēs rīkojamies instinktīvi nemaz nedomājot par visiem niekiem kas mums liktu sabremzēt.

  17. pilnībā piekrītu, šīs situācijas arī palīdz uzlabot pašabziņu, un pēc kāda laika varbūt vispār vairs nebūs problēmu!
