About a month ago, I was pretty down in the dumps. I was getting ready to move, which involved sorting through all of my clothes. I really enjoy my clothes. Having a personal style is important to me, and nothing boosts my confidence like a truly stunning outfit. But of course I have days when it seems like none of my clothes fit, and I look in the mirror and want to hide under my covers, not face the world. I was having just such a day. I was packing, and wishing I had an entirely different wardrobe, or a different body. I was basically telling myself all the mean things that I would never stand around and let anyone else tell me. And that was when I got the idea to make a curvy girl confidence booster playlist.
Since then, I have been steadily curating my playlist to include basically every confidence-boosting song I can think of. At first, I thought it was sort of a hokey idea. I was treating the project like it was a joke, like I was only making the list to satisfy my sociological curiosity about the messages in pop music. But then I started listening to the playlist, and the transformation was amazing. It is crazy how powerful the messages in music can be! Now I listen to this playlist regularly when I am getting ready in the morning. It really puts me in a state of mind where I feel like I can take on the world.
So, because my confidence playlist has been so helpful for me, I decided to share my playlist with you. It is super cheesey, you have been warned. But in a way, I think the over-the-top songs are the most effective at making me feel wonderful.
Now, of course, this is a work in progress. I am trying to make this playlist as diverse as possible, in terms of song style, artists, and messages. But, it is limited by who I am and the music I know. If you have some confidence-boosting toons I should add, let me know!
Lets go! We got this! We are smart, fun women with rockin’ bodies!
