I am asked often how I stay confident and optimistic most of the time.  The truth is that in my over 50 life, I have many ups and downs.  I often feel as though negativity is chasing my confidence around a vicious circle hoping to overcome it.

I get rattled by things like…negative comments on social media; harsh criticisms by people I love; a walk by a mirror which reveals an unflattering choice; reliving regrets of the past; comparing myself to other women;  feeling small in my professions; or fears of the future.  Mind games…I know.  

My faith plays a huge role in the ability to pick back up and begin again.  Also, my faith has taught me to live life one day at a time; understand life is short; dress with a hopeful spirit; and to not allow anyone or anything to rob my joy.
Sometimes, I have to disconnect from life and plug back in again after a healing time.

But, so far, thank goodness,  I am eventually able to out run the negativity.

Then the circle of confidence goes on! 

(I found this funky necklace in my favorite local re-sale shop, THE GARMENT EXCHANGE.  I always find something fun there!)

So, how to do you react when something or someone takes a shot at your confidence?  How quickly are you able to keep on keeping on?

Keep Smiling!
