I have always been pretty comfortable in my own skin. In exactly 16 days I will celebrate my birthday. As with every birthday, I’m uber excited. As the years go by, I also realize that the older I get, the more comfortable I am in my own skin. Allow me to share some steps to being comfortable in your skin.
BEING COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN
Spend Time With You
By nature, I’m an introvert so I tend to spend a lot of time by myself. I always get asked if I get bored. I honestly don’t 🙂 Even if you’re an extrovert, having quality “you time”, just you and your thoughts, goes a long way in being comfortable with YOU.
Be Confident In Your Abilities
We are each born with unique gifts and talents. They were given to us to use and share with the world. Sometimes it’s easy to doubt our abilities, even if they are clear to others. Trust me, I’ve done it. Once you’ve become confident in your own abilities, the sky is the limit.
DON’T COMPARE! Yes, I repeated it. 🙂 If you’re active on social media, it’s hard to miss what everyone else is doing. Everywhere you look, someone is going somewhere amazing or doing something fabulous. Don’t allow yourself to be sidetracked but what other people are doing. Be genuinely happy for others, but keep your eyes focused on your goals, and unplug sometimes if you must 😉
By nature, I’m a “smiler” and I love making other people smile. Have you ever looked in the mirror and just smiled? You should try it.
Since I’m pretty much always showing teeth, I try to keep them as white as possible. I’ve been using Colgate since I was a child, so I was intrigued about the Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste. Unlike most whitening toothpastes, Optic White® Express contains twice times the professionally recommended ingredient hydrogen peroxide, than Optic White Sparkling Mint Toothpaste. This helps to whiten your teeth faster, in 3 days(*) to be exact, just by brushing.
I was able to find the Colgate Optic White® Express at my local Walmart on an end cap display like the one above. The Optic White Express is currently available in 3oz & 4.5oz. The 1.45oz travel size will hit select stores on March 14th.
Since I already know I’ll be cheesing, I can’t wait to see what my smile looks like by my birthday.
*For best results, use as directed for 4 weeks.
