Good Morning friends,
I have now officially started my Etiquette training course and also started reading my Debretts Handbook.
One of the first things I am learning is about being confident. When you are confident in your own skin you can adapt to any situation.
Since having my son my life changed dramatically I went from working full time to full time mum. My whole style changed (comfy baggy clothes were now my go-to). My little one is now nearly two and I realised that I felt as though I had lost my identity slightly. My confidence had been wiped and I no longer felt confident in my own skin.
It was time for a change and having always loved the ladylike style and manner I knew I had found the thing I needed to raise me back up. It’s not all about being serious I want to have fun in the process but confidence is my first step. So here are some of the pointers I am being given to practice…
1: Posture and Poise – Stand up straight with shoulders back and the ability to adapt to any situation without showing nerves.
2: Gratitude – Always be grateful and show it by sending thank you notes or sending flowers. Even if someone hasn’t done anything, just because.
3: Comfort Zone – Get out of your comfort zone by trying and doing new things.
4: Elevator Pitch – A sort of script introducing yourself in a confident manner. Write it down and learn it.
5: Conversation – Work on Body Language And Verbal communications.
6: Clothing – Classic styles, Stain removal and garment care.
I have a huge amount to learn. This is just the start. Being a more confident person allows you to carry yourself better giving that air of elegance that is noticeable and desired.
Thanks for reading, see you next time.
Love Charlotte x
