Lessons From My Five Year Old Friend

Life Lessons, confidence, compliments, 5 year old, Jessicurl

Hi Curlies,

This blog post isn’t going to be about hair so much, but it is going to be about something else I seem to talk about a lot, and that’s confidence and life lessons.

Look, I of all people know that confidence is often difficult to come by, ESPECIALLY when it comes to our hair (see, I fit hair in here). Sometimes we have to fake it ‘till we make it, but my goal for ALL of us is that we do, eventually, make it. “Make it to what, Jess?”, you might ask. Why make it to the super-confident woman represented in the Jessicurl logo, silly! :) My goal for all of us is to feel like THIS as much as possible.

Switching gears a little, I want to share with you one of my personal philosophies. That is, “If you’re thinking something good about someone, it doesn’t do you any good to keep it to yourself.” It’s just TRUE, people. :) I especially think this applies to women and our ability to genuinely compliment each other.

If I think someone is beautiful, I tell her. If I think someone’s eyes are stunning, I tell her! What good does it do for me to think silently inside my head, right? I want ALL of us to be confident enough in ourselves to be able to genuinely compliment each other AND to be able to accept the compliments we get. (Oohhh that’s rough to do, I know. :) )

Ok, so where am I going with all of this? Check out this picture my five year old friend Sasha made me last week. If you can’t read her writing, let me translate. It says, “I love Jess. You are great as me. Love Sasha.”

OMG, right??!?! This kid is FIVE and somehow has already figured out the balance between confidence and compliments. :) I LOVE IT. (I also love that she drew me in pants with one green and one blue leg. I see a new trend coming on…) If you hadn’t guessed, this picture now has the prime spot on my fridge. :)

So, that’s it for today, curlies. I can’t do much better than five year old Sasha did with that picture so I’ll stop here. :) Go drop a compliment on someone, be ready to receive life lessons from unforeseen places and I’ll see you back here soon. :)
