I’m excited. I hope you guys are too. Because tomorrow morning we kick off the 28 Days to a MORE Confident You post series. You can scoff if you like. It may sound like the most self help’ie of self-help style things. But I assure you, it’s not. It is, but it’s not. This will be practical things you can do every single day that will improve your confidence. Baby steps until one day we will finish the 28 days and you will have a new level of confidence FOR YOU. It won’t be about turning you into someone else, it’ll be about you, being a more confident version of yourself.

Every morning from now until the 28th you will have a morning post {6am Australian Eastern Standard Time} with a daily challenge to improve your confidence. I hope you’ll do the challenge and share your successes and your failures with us. You can share your experience in the comments section of each post. You can blog about it {there’s a button below}, share on Twitter or Instagram using the #ConfidentYou hashtag OR on our Facebook wall. However, you want to join in is just fine by me. We’ll have ourselves a little Confident You community.

Before we get started though, let me explain why this post series, why now. When I started really getting into the plus-size outfit photos, women would comment about my confidence. Say they wished they had it or some version of it. They would say they wished they knew HOW to have it. I heard it a lot. It wasn’t that I ignored it, I just didn’t really know what to do with that. Then in a conversation with Rach, I joked, that one day I’d make a boot camp program and whip her butt into shape! Confidence wise. Add one weekend at the ProBlogger training event and hey presto here we are.

It has occurred to me that I’m not really qualified to write this. I’m not a professional or trained in the areas of behaviour. I’m just me. A real estate brat who accidentally fell into the world online and loved it so badly she taught herself the ropes. The one thing I have done is to become a more confident version of myself. Through experience and through the experience of those around me who knew better. So I AM the person. I may not be able to make you THE MOST confident person out there. I certainly won’t cure you of those crises of confidence moments every single day but I do know that you’ll become a more confident version of you.

So, this is for you Rach.

And everyone out there who feels like their confidence is in the toilet. Or on the floor. Or maybe even just at waist height and could use a little lift. I know I say it a lot, but let’s DO this thing. See you all bright and early in the morning. Hands up who’s excited!?
