Wedded Wednesday: The self confidence edition






It's been a while since I've done a wedded wednesday post trying to get back in the habit cause I really miss the marriage reflection that comes with wedded wednesday posts.

Anyway today I'd like to discuss self confidence. See before I met Mr. A I was severely lacking in this department. Mr. A brought out the very best in me and continues to do so. Not a day goes by that he doesn't build me up. He tells me I'm beautiful every morning before we leave for work. I love that my husband builds my confidence in myself and gives me the strength to go out and face the world.

Let's face it the world can be pretty tough. We're constantly bombarded with images of airbrushed celebrities and told we're supposed to look like this on a daily basis. Umm sorry world I have flaws.

I like to think I do the same sort of confidence building for my husband I tell him he's awesome at what he does, I always mention how good he looks when he's been hitting the gym extra hard, I compliment on how well he handles our finances, and of course tell him what a hottie he is.. sigh those deep blue eyes get me everytime:)

I hope we never lose this special part of our marriage and that we're always each other's #1 supporters. It means the world to me to know that even if the world thinks nothing of me there is someone who thinks I'm his perfect 10!

It's so great that God has blessed us with great husbands. I felt the same way you did. I was teased and taunted all my life because I was different from others. When I started dating my husband, he changed my whole outlook of myself and what others thought about me. To him I was beautiful and that meant alot. Now it doesn't matter what others think.

I love this post and always blame (haha) Declan for why I feel so confident in my own skin (when often times I shouldnt!), because he is just so darn good to me in the compliment arena...!

You're a lucky lady :)

You are so blessed that Mr. A is so wonderful in this area! Mine does the same for me and I just wish husbands could understand how just one little compliment can turn the entire day completely around for their wife. We hang on their words.

Love this post! We sure are blessed! Isn't it amazing to know even if we think we look like trash, we are gorgeous in the eyes of our husbands!

I so agree with where you're coming from on this! And "airbrushed celebrities" is definitely the truth! I get SO tired of that... I love it that hubby calls me "pretty girl" on almost a daily basis and he so quick to try and boost my self confidence, but also reminds me all the time that my confidence has to come from my relationship with the Lord. *sigh* He's such a good hubby... :)
