Do you want to know what’s the most important key for how to be confident? This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Miss USA pageant (invitation by my beautiful girlfriend Farah). It was my first pageant so I didn’t know what to expect and I honestly was more excited that the Backstreet Boys were going to be performing. But as great as the BSB were (yup, I’m back to my teen years) I couldn’t believe the amount of preparation these beautiful women have put in for this event.
Ironically enough, this video was filmed before I went to the Miss USA pageant but the theme and final question of the night was “Confidence and Beauty,”
In fact, their last and final question of the night was, “Define confidently beautiful.”
I was so excited to see the contestants answers because confidence is a struggle for a lot of my dear ladies so I love hearing how other women define it, because I have a very specific belief about it (which I share in today’s video.)
Want to know how the final three contestants answered?
“I know that very well. I use that on Instagram all the time. But being confidently beautiful means knowing who you are, loving yourself for who you are, loving yourself no matter what your flaws are because your flaws are what makes your beautiful.”
“Confidently beautiful is someone who’s not just beautiful on the outside. It’s someone who cares for everybody. Whether the homeless, the helpless, making other people feel loved and important, humbling yourself is what’s important and I think that is the type of beauty that will last a lifetime.”
Miss District of Columbia:
“To me, confidently beautiful means understanding that it’s not always about your appearance. It’s not always about who you’re around and how they feel you look, where they feel you come from or your economic background. Serving in the military has taught me that being confidently beautiful is about being able to earn respect from people regardless of what you look like. As a woman in the military, people associate beauty with weakness, and they learn very quickly that I’m extremely strong and although I’m small, I’m powerful. Confidently beautiful is being myself and being very happy with who I’ve become.”
All great answers right! Well… as beautiful as these ladies answered, I just have one thing I would’ve added that I feel is actually the MOST important key to being confidently beautiful. In fact, without this key, confidence couldn’t really exist. SERIOUSLY.
