I firmly believe that when you are generally and genuinely happy, you glow. Even when you are worn out. And when your joy resonates like that, it affects your surroundings including the people you encounter. Often times I can't help but smile when I see a complete stranger playing with their kids at the mall or just strolling by oneself with a happy face on, and almost as often do I feel dragged down by a sullen face among the crowd. Like it or not, it is that easy to affect other people without necessarily making contact with them. My daily goal every day is to be the reason someone smiles everyday, the trigger for one to think that happiness is a state of mind and thus it is not very difficult to feel happy. Some people tell me that they like how every time they see me I am always with a smile or grin on my face and how it is so easy to make me laugh. I like to know that my being happy makes other people happy too.
Happiness correlates directly to confidence. When one is happy one is confident, and when one is confident one is happy. One of my secrets to achieving both every single day is to translate my thoughts and mood through my outfits. I dress most comfortably and desirably, I get my hair and appropriate make up done, I make enough time to do all those so that I do not leave anything behind and let myself out the house feeling like oh I should've done this, I should've done that. The other day this meant throwing beige-lavender-yellow-brown together and producing this look, which I felt great with. I like my blouses oversized, so thank you Floe for such a perfect fitting one.
