Update: check out the official website for National Self-Confidence day!
Do you remember how you spent National Self-Confidence Day last year? That’s a trick question. We just invented National Self-Confidence Day this year. It’s happening on March 26th. It’s going to be awesome. Everyone’s invited. You’re definitely invited.
You probably have lots of questions. Well, we make expressive socks and underwear to fill you with colorful confidence. Over the years, we’ve been lucky to witness firsthand the kind of transformative power self-confidence can have on people. Feeling comfortable in your own skin, believing in yourself, is something to celebrate! That’s why we started this long-overdue holiday.
How do you get involved with National Self-Confidence Day?
First, be confident in yourself. This holiday is all about spreading confidence to everyone, but let’s start with you. Everyone has at least one thing that should inspire self-confidence. What are you good at? What do you like to do for fun? What makes you proud? These are great places to start. Maybe you’re an amazing mom. Maybe you hiked to the top of a really steep hill last weekend. Maybe you’re so smart you swept an entire category in Jeopardy! The list goes on and on. Whatever your reason, it’s reason enough to look in the mirror and say, “I believe in you.”
Confidence is contagious. Let’s spread it to as many people as possible. There are so many ways to do that. Call or text a friend and let them know you believe in them. You never know when someone needs to hear something just like that and how big of an effect it can have on their confidence.
We have lots of fun and inspiring activities planned throughout the day.
We want you to send us #selfieconfidence photos! Take a picture of yourself and tell us a bit about what self-confidence means to you. Be sure to post it online with the hashtag #selfieconfidence because we’ll be sharing our favorites all day long on our website.
Show us your #selfieconfidence!
The Sock It to Me team will also be on the ground in our hometown of Portland, Oregon, spreading confidence one personal interaction at a time. We’ll be sharing stuff throughout the day, with stories and ideas about what self-confidence means to people on an individual level.
Self-confidence is so important in so many ways. It lurks in the background for every decision we ever make. But here’s the thing: it’s not that some people are born with the gift of self-confidence while others are cursed to doubt themselves at every turn. It’s a skill. Even if you’re not a natural at it, you can get better. And we’re here to help however we can. March 26th, the first-ever National Self-Confidence Day, is one more step on that journey.
