Confidence

Confidence. Guys say that's the sexiest quality in a girl. Girls say that's the sexiest quality in a guy. Employers look for confidence in potential employees. It seems like confidence is the answer to solving most problems. With confidence, anything is achievable.

But self-consciousness can strike at any time. I've been procrastinating writing this blog for two nights because I'm not feeling confident that what I'm writing is what people want to hear. But then I realized - I don't care. I think my ideas are good ones - my friends agree with me and the warrior queen creed. Writing this blog is a learning process - and only in time will I be able to get the confidence in this style of writing. [[Ironic though, that as I write this about confidence, mine is lacking.]]

Warrior Queens are confident - even when underneath it all they are freaking out and having anxiety attacks. Take this week for example - it seems to be a week of anxiety attacks, freak outs, and an all around lack of confidence in myself and my group of friends. But, as Avril says we are "the best damn thing."

When times get less than confident for the Warrior Queens, we have a tendency to write "WQ" on our wrists, hands, etc to remind ourselves that we are strong girls and we can do anything. Anyone can do anything, if you set your mind to it and have confidence. Even if you have nothing, confidence is enough to convince others that you have everything.

Introductions

Hi. I'm Raewyn. I suppose that is the best way to start this blog out - I am excited for it because I am hoping this is the portal to my magazine that I someday hope to start.

As of late, I have been feeling as if I am stuck in a rut. I know that I am not - that things are just normalizing in my life for once but I have always been one to become restless. In an attempt to get out of this rut, I have finally decided to start my blog - after sitting on this name for almost 4 months. I have been nervous about writing my first post, but I realized now is a good as time as any. There is no time like the present - dreams cannot be pushed aside for the everyday mundane things.

Today, my horoscope told me that change is in the air. Like always, I want to be the change I want to see in the world. Instantly, my attitude changed. I have always found this to be the first step in fixing things and being happy with oneself - that determination and attitude change. It's so easy to pick out our flaws and do everything in our power to hide them. However, I truly believe trying to hide them just brings more attention to them and they become more pronounced. Embracing the flaws allows other people to embrace them as well.

I guess I should probably post up my definition of a warrior queen - or the "Warrior Queen Creed" as it is sometimes called. This is my mission statement - the belief that I think every person should live their life by - because only in embracing yourself, are you able to help others. In loving yourself, you can truly love another. Without that, there is nothing but events, words, things...just STUFF. Nothing that I could ever feel is worth it. Of course, this is just how I, and a few of my friends feel.

warrior queen:
be the best of you, in all situations. Be strong and don't let people walk all over you, but be strong enough to let your guard down to those that matter. Embrace heartbreak, it will teach you something about yourself. Don't restrict yourself from doing something that YOU want to do. Listen to what others have to say, but make your own decisions. Never regret anything, because you are doing what you want to do. Don't be ashamed to show your emotion or deal with your problems. don't be afraid to fall in love, even multiple times. Do what's best for you, but do it gracefully and never ever intentionally hurt someone. If they don't belong in your life, gracefully show them the door. Change is necessary, don't drag your feet - greet the day. Do everything with poise and grace. and never ever let anyone make you feel inferior or bad at something. You are the best of you, if they don't like it tough luck. Being a warrior queen is subjective, specific to your situation.


Life is a series of choices - and nothing is ever black and white. Embrace the shades of grey. =]
