Crop Top Confidence

#66: Crop Top Confidence

I own 7 crop tops. If you would have told me a few years ago that after three babies I would feel more at home in a crop top than just about any other piece of clothing, I would have thought you were insane. But it’s true.

I own 7 crop tops. If you would have told me a few years ago that after three babies I would feel more at home in a crop top than just about any other piece of clothing, I would have thought you were insane.

But it’s true. And it comes back to the work I’ve done in thinking about my future self and working to create that reality right now (rather than waiting). This is why today’s episode is all about confidence! Here’s the main topics discussed:

  • You can’t wait until you feel confident
  • Growing up, body image, and spaghetti straps
  • Exploring the question of “how do I want to feel”
  • Wading into wearing crop tops
  • How wearing crop tops actually makes me feel
  • What my confidence is tied to (it’s not just body image related)
  • I don’t have it all figured out yet!
  • Getting curious

A few highlights from this episode:

[3:08] – Confidence does not come before you do something scary, it comes after.

[3:15] – So much of confidence is self-trust that you can do hard things and not die, and it will be okay.

[7:45] – I had this realization that I wasn’t just going to suddenly wake up one day and be confident about wearing a crop top. That wasn’t just going to happen. I had to wear them. I had to try, right?

[8:55] – Turns out I freaking love a crop top.

[9:05] – I never would have known that it actually made me feel confident, and not the opposite, had I not tried it and just gotten curious and started experimenting with something as seemingly silly as crop tops. And I’m so glad that I did.
