Dare to Live Confidently

Danyelle Gibson-Grant

Life is a beautiful gift; a gift we should never take for granted. As such, we should live our lives as women to the greatest extent possible.

Living our lives in the most confident way we can, in a way that values who we truly are, places us in a position to live fully confident. When you own your confidence you dare to live a bigger life!  You dare yourself to do bigger and greater things and you learn more about yourself in that process.  You begin to recognize that you are capable of so much more.     You begin to recognize and understand strengths in yourself that you didn’t know you had!

Old fears and old ways of doing things begin to dissipate as you do all of this by taking one step.  By making that one decision that “I  WILL”….that I will despite the fear, step out and be true to myself.  Step out and own my worth.  Step out and walk into my confidence.           Just imagine the joy that you will feel in doing things you’ve always want to do.  To achieve successes, you’ve always desired to achieve.  To live life in a full, purposeful and meaningful way.  Now, you will begin to expect and receive good things in your life.

How you think about life and what you desire is the first step.  Making a decision to live fully confident in obtaining what you desire out of your life is the next step.

Take a moment to really THINK about living a life you love.  Traveling where you desire to travel, living in the home of your dreams, providing for your family in the way you’ve always wanted to. Think about all wonderful new people who will be brought into your life because of the new confidence you are exhibiting.  Think of all the people whose life you are now touching because you decided to live and walk in your confidence. That’s powerful!

Getting Real with Coco Chanel and Hair


“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life” ~ Coco Chanel

While the statement is simple and profound, it may seem superficial but is very complex in its purpose, meaning, and depth of understanding.

Coco Chanel knew the power of a good haircut, and what it’s like to reinvent yourself through style.  She was a confident, beautiful woman who wouldn’t let others drag her down or impose their thoughts and views on her.  She lived life on her own terms, her way.

This quote says it all about how to live your life in an inspiring way that is unique to you.  Maybe what Coco Chanel is trying to say is that women need to shake things up a bit, be daring and banish that fear of scissors. 

Self-confidence is attractive. 

Think about the time when you go to the hairdresser and the feeling it gives you when you walk out of there with a gorgeous new look.  If any of you have cut your hair from long to short in one appointment, how does that feel when you walk out?  What words come to mind when you think about it?

Uplifting, shocking, transformative inside and out, fresh, a new beginning, sexy, confidence, courageous, lighter, freeing, healthy, beautiful, stylish, sleek, chic, powerful, authentic you, and fun?!

People who see you are amazed at the difference because in order to transform your hair into something completely different, you need to transform yourself from within, first.  It’s about changing your attitude or perspective.  You have made a conscious decision to embrace change, to go against the norm, clean up the old with something new and it’s time to get your groove back girl!  Especially if you are just healing from a breakup, this is the best time to do it because it’s going to help give you that bounce in your step and fall in love with you all over again, because you’re worth it. 

Make it a game changer by gaining a new perspective on life.

Worst case scenario is that you don’t like it.  The good news is that it’s just hair, and it grows back so not to worry girls.  Best case scenario is that you love it and it makes you shine from the inside out because there’s nothing more liberating than a woman who has the freedom of choice.

A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life is no word of a lie, but instead words to live by. 

Thanks, Coco.

Rio Olympics Inspiration!

I’ve been sooooo inspired by watching the Rio Olympics!! To see the hard work and dedication of so many talent athletes has me in awe!  I am so throughly inspired and encouraged to continue to follow “my dreams and my desires” to achieve success and the ‘gold medal’ in my life. Watching Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Katie Ledecky, Simone Manual and Lilly King has been awesome!  Seeing all of that gets me thinking….What are your dreams and desires for your life?  Are you going for your own individual life gold medal? How are you progressing to accomplish your life goals?
