We can't avoid it. One of the reasons this feels so big and so heavy is because you're faced with it every day.

Today on Confidently She, I want to encourage you around this thought: food is designed to be enjoyed and help you express who you are and what you're feeling!

When you feel like you're behind in life
The audio quality is poor, but the content is FIRE!! In this episode, I'm talking about timelines..... turning 30, staying relevant as a woman, and all this pressure we feel as women to get things done in a certain amount of time and to hit certain milestones before we reach a certain age. Cultural timelines of expiration dates on your career, relationships, when you can have certain things in order to be "impressive'. Because it's not just our bodies that have these as women. Why do we have these ridiculous timelines on how quickly everything in our life needs to happen? What fundamental belief does a timeline point to? Listen to this episode to hear me unravel allll of this.   Connect with me on IG @rebekahbuege   >>> Take the FREE Body Confidence Quiz here: https://rebekah-buege-creative.mykajabi.com/body-confidence-quiz   >>> Learn more about Confidently She Premium (or register for our upcoming round) here: https://rebekah-buege-creative.mykajabi.com/confidently-she    >>> Want to chat about 1:1 body confidence coaching?

When it feels like you ARE what your body looks like
Why do we think of ourselves as a body? Our brains are trained to think certain things about ourselves because of today's culture. Feeling like you ARE what your body looks like. Feeling like you ARE the appearance of your body. That is your identity. That is who you are. In this episode, we're going to talk about why we feel this way as women. What to do about it. And what's actually true. This is one of my favorite topics because this is what helped me shift the quickest and gave me the most light bulb moment.    >>> Take the FREE Body Confidence Quiz here: https://rebekah-buege-creative.mykajabi.com/body-confidence-quiz   >>> Learn more about Confidently She Premium (or register for our upcoming round) here: https://rebekah-buege-creative.mykajabi.com/confidently-she    >>> Want to chat about 1:1 body confidence coaching?

When love languages can help you love your body
Today we're talking about love languages. And how to apply your love language to your relationship with your body. If you don't know what your love language is...where have you been?? You need to know which one(s) is yours (btw this is another great way to get to know yourself 😉 ). Once you know your love language or languages, ask yourself this....How have you been giving and/or withholding this from your body? Listen to hear how I use my love languages to practice self-love and to better love my body. Find me on IG @rebekahbuege  Download the Body Confidence Playbook at rebekahbuege.com

When you don't know yourself as well as you thought you did
In this episode, we're talking about practical ways to meet yourself. Specifically, getting to know your body. Now, I know what you're probably thinking....."Rebekah how would I not have met myself? I've been alive for x number of years. This is a weird topic...?" I hear you and if it were me six years ago, I probably would be saying the same thing. But trustttttt me, you have to know yourself in order to love yourself. Once you know who you are, you're going to LOVE YOURSELF!

When every generation has different body ideals
I'm excited about this episode because we're talking about generational ideas of body image. As women, we're very self-focused. We tend to think that the way we want to look, is the way everyone wants to look. We also tend to compare ourselves to the current beauty/body "standard". But when you look at what the beauty/body standard was throughout the years, it's ever-changing. It's not like women have held themselves to the same standards for the past 200 years and we're all working towards the same goal. No! Depending on the decade that you grew up in, or went to college in, that's going to influence what you think your body should look like. So think about the expectations that you're holding yourself to and what "standard" does it line up with? Let's deconstruct these generational body type expectations, and be more intentional about where your expectations for your body come from.   Find me on IG @rebekahbuege Download the Body Confidence Playbook at rebekahbuege.com

When you resist "girly" things criticized by culture
There's a lot of good stuff in this episode. Culture criticizes things women like to do, drink, say, or how we generally act. It's so normalized, you might be surprised to hear the examples covered during this episode. I'm sharing a few personal examples of how I pretended to like things so I would come off more attractive (yikes). The purpose of this episode is to challenge why you resist certain things you like that are considered "girly" and why "girly" things are bad (spoiler: they aren't) growing in confidence comes from exploring who you are, what you like, and being honest with yourself about what you find. This is a MUST listen for anyone struggling to let themselves be free. Enjoy!

When you want to feel confident in your body
This episode talks about how to actually start feeling confident in your body. Beauty standards have everyone confused on what's actually beautiful, what you need to do to be confident, and how to exist as a woman. In my work with clients, I developed an 8 step program to go from self conscious to self confident in the exact same body. This episode covers step one.

When the haters gonna hate
Anyone getting attention also gets hate. Haters are jealous of the attention you're getting. They feel threatened by you doing something and instead of choosing to be inspired, they choose hate. That says a lot about them - and very little about you, my queen. However, there's a difference between haters and actual feedback. Listen in on my approach to thinking about haters, who to listen to, and how to stay grounded in who you are in this super important episode!

When you're single and have a lot to offer
Single? Disappointed with your dates? Not ready to settle for another guy expecting praise for doing the bare minimum? Yahhh - I'm right there with you, love. Here's the thing, as you grow in confidence, your compatibility pool gets smaller. You're only attracted to people who are also confident and secure. Your criteria changes. Which is great, because you avoid the toxic relationships and stress of being mistreated. But it means you're single longer. Here's the truth: you can have a complete, fulfilling life without a romantic partner. When you focus on what you bring to the table and expanding who you are, you're not going to let people sit at your table who only show up with an appetite. You also won't be starving for any kind of "food" someone's willing to offer. Listen for how to think about dating, relationships, and life as a confident, equipped Queen.

Foundations: Having a Queen Mindset
The best way to develop a mindset of confidence is to emulate a figure who already has it. I couldn't think of a better way than to embody the energy of a Queen. Like, a legit Queen. It's not arrogant to see yourself as a Queen when you understand what that actually means. In this Foundations episode, I'm explaining why I chose this term and what it means when put into practice. Do you expect people to bow down to you in the street? Of course not...but I want you to be at a place where if it happened you wouldn't be uncomfortable or all that shocked. Seeing yourself as a Queen reminds you there's really no competition because you already got the crown, you just need to uphold it and enjoy it. Remember who you are, and listen to this episode. Welcome to the Foundations series of Confidently She. These episodes are designed to give you an inside look at my approach to body anxiety and femininity. Confidently She is the perspective you're missing to own your self worth, build solid self trust, and develop body confidence. So you can enjoy your incredible life (let's just be honest). This is only the beginning - check out all the tools and trainings at www.confidentlyshepodcast.com. Here's the thing, with all the voices telling you you're not enough (or too much) I'm here to point out the fact you have all the raw materials you need - and show you how to trust your intuition to turn them into a masterpiece life, unique to you.

Foundations: Qualities of Feminine Confidence
What's the difference between feminine confidence and masculine confidence? Isn't confidence just...confidence? No, it's not. Based on the context, you can respond from a place of masculine confidence or feminine confidence. In order to know how you want to respond, you have to understand the difference between these two things. Most of what we see in culture is masculine confidence traits, and of those traits - the ones we associate with confidence are unhealthy, boarder line toxic. Things like being forceful, controlling, doing "whatever it takes" to produce a certain outcome. That is predatory behavior, it's actually not confidence. Confidence is a grounded trust in yourself to handle situations as they change. It's actually not being in control (as much as we might think it is) listen for the full context of what confidence is and how masculine and feminine energies show up in a confident way.

Foundations: The Femininity Masterclass
Okay - here it is. I'm laying out my definition of femininity and what it looks like to be a confident, feminine woman. The easy way to act confident is to mimic what you see others doing. That's how we learn. But when you're in a male dominated industry or business function (or just living in a patriarchal culture) that tends to look like conforming to masculine confidence traits. That happened to me for years when I first started in corporate sales. I copied everything the most successful reps did (those happened to be men on my team) and it put me in my masculine energy. I had to actively seek out the women who were doing well and see what habits they employed and how I could create that in my approach. This works outside the business world, too. We often see "confident women" acting the exact same as men, which doesn't attract the masculine. So what do we do? Listen to the episode. I have the answer.
