I have mentioned in the past that I suffer from a bit of anxiety. Some days are better than others, but I try to just take it as it comes. Unfortunately, one of the feelings that comes along with my anxiety is insecurity.
I hate to say it, but I’m more than a little bit of the jealous type. I know my boyfriend loves me and thinks I’m beautiful, but sometimes my brain tricks me into thinking otherwise.
I don’t know exactly how this idea came to me, but I really like it.
I have a perfume that I wear, which happens to be my favorite. It is also Eric’s favorite. In fact, he goes crazy over the smell when I wear it. I should mention that I only wear it every once in a while, like when we’re going out somewhere nice. And when I do, I often get compliments. The perfume is “Viva La Juicy” by Juicy. In one word, it makes me feel confident when I wear it.
Today I thought that if wearing perfume makes me feel confident and sexy, why not put some on when I’m feeling a little down?
Unfortunately this afternoon I was feeling a little blue, and we had plans to go out tonight-this was the perfect opportunity to test my idea. I went upstairs to our bedroom and grabbed the little bottle of perfume. I aimed it at the inside of my wrist and gave the bottle a gentle push with my finger. Immediately I could smell the incredible aroma.
When I went back downstairs, I gave Eric a hug, intentionally pushing myself tight into him. He noticed the perfume and said “You smell beautiful.”
A confidence boost for sure 🙂
