2019 is going to be the year of self confidence

The other day, I realized something when I was going through all my old photos and my "Snapchat year in review."  I noticed I had 10 times as many photos of my cats than I did of myself. Don't get me wrong, my cats are cute as heck, but why didn't I take more selfies this year? I knew the answer...

I hate the way I look almost every day. My hair is too frizzy, I'm overweight and I hate the way my face looks. I still avoid mirrors as much as I can.

This got me thinking about my confidence. I've had low self esteem since I was a teenager, and It's gotten worse as I've gained weight in college. I compare myself to other women in college, who are beautiful and unlike me. At least that's what I tell myself.

But I want that to change. 2019 will be the year of confidence and positive self-talk.

I want to wake up and be okay with my face without any make up on. 

I want to not worry about how my hair looks every other minute of the day.

I want to not worry about if that shirt makes me look fat.

It will take control to help myself feel better, and I will make it happen. 

For my new years resolution, I want to feel confident about myself. I want to be one of those people who takes cute selfies every day before I go to class.

There's no room for negativity this year. This is the year of confidence.
