There’s a video made by Dove going around the internet showing that most women are their own worst beauty critics. Here it is:

This reminded me of an activity we sometimes do in camp. The girls sit in a circle and they are handed a box. They are supposed to pass the box around the circle and each girl has to describe what she sees inside it. The trick is, there is a mirror inside. As each girl opens the box and sees the mirror, she suddenly has nothing to say. How should she describe herself?

The first step to achieving your dreams is believing in yourself. If you don’t believe that you are capable and talented, then how are you going to make those dreams happen? So take a moment to sit down and write a list of all the good things about yourself. What do others like about you? What are you good at? What is your best quality? Hold onto this list and take it out whenever you need a boost of confidence.

Comment below! What words would you describe yourself with?
