We all know the feeling.

Your hair is styled, and you have on your perfect amount of makeup. You slip on your favorite outfit and jewelry. You're ready to take on the world! That feeling is called confidence.

Confidence can be described as "a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities." I'll tell you what, as a new mom with a busy career, I was not feeling that way. My self care had fallen to the back burner while I was trying to balance my responsibilities as wife, mom and real estate agent. With small exceptions, I was rocking the messy bun and yoga pants whenever I didn't have appointments. I knew something had to change.

Right before the virus hit Palm Coast, I reached out to my friend Diana Costa, owner of The Glam Squad. I explained what was going on and told her I needed a pick me up. She had previously styled my hair and did my makeup on our wedding day, one of the most confident days of my life! I knew she would be able to help me out.

We scheduled an appointment, and, in two short hours, I went from a messy, exhausted mama to a confident, excited-about-the-day boss babe. The atmosphere was upbeat and positive, as it is in many of our local salons, which just added to me leaving feeling great!

I am grateful for local mama-run businesses where we can go to get those pick-me-ups.

Confidence can come from a lot of different places. It doesn't just come from the outside, it comes from within.

It can sometimes be amplified by a simple trip to the nail or hair salon or even a call to your best girlfriend. Lately, I have enjoyed exercising with friends, taking extra time to smile and laugh with Elijah, and go on dates with Brady. There's no better feeling than when my boys look at me with love in their eyes!
