Confidence: the tool for positive self-image

Thanks to a friend’s suggestion, we decided to challenge ourselves to try and identify the confident people that stand out in a crowd (we do this on the subway train, during Rush Hour).

On one occasion, a very good person told us that if we were to spend only 30 minutes each day focusing on ourselves it would make for the beauty we feel inside to match the beauty we see outside; we would very much appreciate being alive and appreciate the ones around us.
