I. Am. Beautiful.

“You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

We live in a culture where we are imposed with two contradicting messages: if you don’t say you’re beautiful you are insecure and if you say you are, then well, you are cocky.

I have a different message for those reading my blog…

Be cocky!

Say you’re beautiful.

Say you’re sexy.

You are your biggest fan!

Finding confidence in yourself does not bring others down, as a matter of fact, when done right, it does the exact opposite.

“There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.” – Marianne Williamson

Just because you find yourself beautiful doesn’t mean everyone will, but the only person’s opinion you have to live with is your own. When you shine through in confidence, others find inspiration to also live fully themselves.

“The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off.” – Robert Hand

Let me assure you, I have been in both sides. Living in a head of insecure lies is not nearly as enticing as living with this cocky son of a bitch.

As the saying goes, you do you. There is nothing more beautiful, sexy, interesting, or important than the youest of yous.

“I believe with all my heart that the cliches are true, that we are our own best friends and best company, and that if you’re not right for yourself, it’s impossible to be right for anyone.” – Rachel Machacek


About ashleekarin

Every Sunday I tried to post updates since I succeed in camping the doorstep of the world during a 110 day road trip around the USA; The Roadside Bears blog was then brought head first into the internet world (changed to ashleekarin.wordpress.com). Included are the details of our adventures and how we are doing, as well as tips on how we made a road trip around the USA happen. It’s important to pursue your dreams to the end, even if you end up with nothing. After all, you only have one life to live; go big or go home. Join me vicariously through this blog – AshleeKarin.wordpress.com – and experience the adventure of my life. Viewer discretion is advised, as you will most likely witness a very hungry person freezing as they sleep in their car. I will always be planning the next great adventure – so don’t miss out, subscribe to the blog today! XoxO (big kiss little hug little kiss big hug ), Ashlee Karin
