The Best Accessory

The Best Accessory
Recently I seem to be receiving a large amount of compliments. I don't mean from random young men. Old ladies have stopped me in the grocery store to tell me that I look nice, co-workers are telling me that whatever I'm doing differently is working, friends are suddenly complimenting my style, and people in the check-out lines are giving me extra coupons to return to their stores. The funny thing is, for the longest time I couldn't seem to figure out just what was causing all of the nice comments. My hairdresser helped me go blonder for the summer but that was about a month ago, and I did recently loose some weight, but I've been at my current weight for about three months now. So why all of the sudden compliments now?

Then the little light bulb went off, and I sat smiling at my realization. I think people are starting to notice my newest accessory, my Confidence. I never had many issues when it came to self-esteem, but in the last few years I have felt myself turning in much more, and becoming much more of a shy, timid person. I was judging myself harder then anyone ever had. I have always been a positive person, and I believe strongly that you get what you give. If you put positive energy out into the world, you will get positive energy back in return. It seems however that for awhile, I was sending all of my positive energy out and wasn't keeping much for myself.Somewhere along the way, I learned to keep a bit behind for myself and seem to finally have this positive energy thing perfectly balanced. I've haven't felt this good in years, and while I attribute a lot of it to my wonderful Neurologist, I think a good bit of credit can also go to my new healthy thinking. When you are feeling your best, you start looking your best as well, and apparently people start to notice. I don't plan on going anywhere without my newest accessory. I feel good, and I look good, and I can't wait to step out into the world each day, and show it all off a bit.
