Brittany Spears Shaved her Head


Brittany Spears shaved her head. Did she show confidence by doing this? Did she show she was goofy by doing this? That is for you to decide.

I am sure there are a variety of opinions about why she shaved her head. Like wise there are a variety of opinions of how people think she looks with her head shaved.

I suppose it was a bold move to shave her head. I also suppose that confidence was involved somewhere in her decision. It also seems to me a whimsical move. Perhaps even one lacking thought.

This leads me to the question what is confidence?

On some level it is a personal choice. It is not actually an absolute thing. The culture and times you live in will affect the definition of confidence. For example back in the 1950’s women were “supposed to” get married, have a family and be a homemaker. The women that choose a different path were considered outcasts. Perhaps some viewed them as confident. Now in 2007 this has changed. There is not a “supposed to” anymore. There are now options. You have a greater choice in what you want to do.

Let me give you the 2007 definition of confidence. The 2007 definition of confidence is to do what you are comfortable doing. You need to make your own choices and decisions.

When people are asked what they would like in their lives it is easier for them to respond with what they do not like in their lives. So let’s make this easy. What do you want to be different in your life? Are you confident to change that? Will you be comfortable living your life if these things do not change? Addressing this will help you in defining confidence for yourself. It will allow you to see yourself in a new light. It will clarify what you want to work on. You will never get the right answer if you ask the wrong question. So ask yourself these questions.

Once you do you will see that you do have the confidence to create the life you want.
