I met Libby Horsman at a recent business conference for women and I was very impressed with her enthusiasm about her own personal development, her support for all the great businesses at the conference and her plans to write a book about her story. We’ve been corresponding ever since and I love her down-to-earth style, so I asked her to write a blog for you.
Libby works as beauty consultant, and she also writes blogs. She is currently working on her first book The Angel Who Grew Her Wings, her personal story of change and transformation, which she is planning to launch in the summer of 2015. You can check out Libby’s own blog here.
Hello, My Name is Libby
Do you ever feel like you are someone else and you do not feel like yourself?
I know exactly how you are feeling and what its like to feel like you have lost your real identity and not sure who you are anymore. The real you is there within you it is just hidden within you, trying to come out so that everyone can see what an amazing woman you are.
People expect you to act a certain way which will confuse us and it makes us become someone we are not, which just makes us feel rubbish and unsure of who we are. Just Imagine yourself standing on a crossroads. You feel like you can’t move because you are unsure of how you should act, or who you should be.
Take a deep breath and take a step forward, remember there is only one of you and no one else is like you. You are a unique individual and if you were like everyone else the world would be a boring place.
On the outside people think you are a confident woman, as you go about your daily life you always have a smile on your face, as you don’t want people to know that anything is wrong, though on the inside it is a very different story. Even when you feel rubbish and lacking in confidence, just keep on smiling, it confuses people as they will think you are alright. I found smiling can instantly make you feel happier and better and make your day feel brighter.
I used to do so much for other people that I forgot to think about myself. You are allowed to do things for other people, just not all the time and it is ok to say no instead of always saying yes.
Make time for yourself and slow down, take some time out and be yourself, go and get your self pampered, do something you love doing like shopping, swimming, going for a walk or even read a book you keep meaning to read.
