How do you stay positive and confident?
Confidence is something that I work at every single day. It does not come naturally and it does not come easily. Even when I know things about myself to be true. I know that I am loved and I know that I am enough and that I am great — I don't always feel that way. Sometimes I have to work myself up into feeling that way. It takes a lot of practice and it's a very personal journey. It's something that I have to find within myself and pull out of myself every single day.
