One quick way to keep your self confidence up

Self-Confidence. It’s critical to being able to stave off the naysayers. It’s critical to maintaining momentum in those moments of self-doubt. And, we all have them ~ even the most centered of people. So what ways can you sue to keep your self confidence up?

One way to bolster and keep your self confidence high is to embrace how you have helped and supported others in your work and in your life. When you are having a difficult time keeping your vibration up; when you feel like you are not able to give enough or are having a hard time creating momentum for growth, it’s important to appreciate how you have helped serve others. Enter Your Love Box! Tweet: How to keep your confidence high with this one thing @laurapclark


A Love Box ~ is a form of gratitude ~ in reverse. It shows you how you how grateful people are for having you in their lives. It shows you that you are already a strong, compassionate individual and live in full support of others while pursuing your own passions.

In the box, you put love notes from friends, clients, family and colleagues. On particularly challenging days that you are having trouble seeing your self value, have allowed your vibration to lower or are unable to listen to the wisdom of your own soul (and yes this can happen!), this box will give you the confidence and love you desire. It is most helpful when you are dealing with difficult people or when you’ve heard a lot of “No’s” coming from others.

Love Boxes are a way to keep your self confidence high. You can purchase a beautiful one! But, I believe that the best Love Boxes are those that you make on your own being guided by the principles of Sacred Soul Collage® making. This is because the box is created and infused with the energy of your own soul’s wisdom. And your own soul does know the truth. It knows you are a self confident, capable person able to meet the demands in life by following your own desires.

Have you ever made A Love Box or kept your “thank you notes’ in a special place?

  1. Laura, thank you for this post. I have kept the notes, cards, etc. in a folder. Maybe it is time to create a special receptacle for them.

  2. 🙂 Try it, Lilia!!! And let me know what you think ~ if a beautiful receptacle is a more honorable place than a folder ~ I bet you will!!!

  3. I have a basket that I keep all my ‘love notes’ in. it helps to look them over when I’m having a bad day. Thanks for the reminder to re-visit my box more regularly.

  4. Baskets! That’s a great idea ~ I’m reminded that my mom had one hanging next to her desk for her favorite notes from all of us kids ~ very much the same idea 🙂

  5. OMGoddess – I have a LOVE BOX! I call them memory boxes and they are not decorated but they fill me with so much joy when I take a some time to look through them. Great idea Laura!

  6. Lisa! I have memory boxes too~ from periods in my life ~ my parents! I love that. This particular Love Box ~ with love notes about YOU are so inspiring!! Try creating one on your own ~ you’ll be amazed how much more energy it holds for these notes ~ a sacred “GODDESS” receptacle if you will 😉 and when I see you next I’ll share the secret to infusing it with everything you need that i’m sharing with my Sacred Soul Collage today!!!!

  7. I keep notes and cards in a box, have for years. I also have a wonderful little chest that I use for mementos from my business – flyers I’ve made, my business cards, etc. It creates a nice memory box that shows me how much I have grown. Thanks again! Blessings!

  8. YaY Donna! I have a box too for personal things and had a box last year for ‘love cards’ in business ~ creating one personally infuses your own wonderful energy in it ~ have you ever tried that?!

  9. It’s so nice to create a special way to honor the good we bring into the world. Too much is focused on what is wrong and what needs fixing! And your box is super sweet Laura!

  10. Thanks Bonnie! I’m really in-joying mine!

  11. Oh I too love this!!! Now my folder seems or lacking. What a great idea. I do want to make one of these soon. Thanks.

    Comment by Cindy — January 28, 2015 @ 8:03 am

  12. Cindy~ i had a folder too ~ and once I did this, it was so much more respectful to have a beautiful home for them! I hope you’ll try it!

    Comment by Laura Clark — January 29, 2015 @ 9:15 pm

  13. Love this idea, Laura. Not only will it be fun to make but it will also be something to cherish and pick me up on days when I feel stuck or worried I am not on the right path. Thanks for this creative idea, makes the artist in me want to play now 🙂

  14. Awesome Minette ~ my artist in me is a very very quiet being and yes, doing this process did make me want to play!

  15. Oh my goodness, Laura!! I love your Love Box!! I do have a special box that I keep special notes of appreciation from my clients, friends and family — but it’s not as beautiful as yours and it hasn’t been honored with the perfect name like the LOVE BOX. Thank you so much for inspiring me to bring this important practice to a new level!! xxoo

  16. Stacey ~ no doubt your box is a very special place too. Add into yours something that brings that energy to it ~ it’s a great start!

    Comment by Laura Clark — January 29, 2015 @ 9:17 pm

  17. Sometimes a box, sometimes a bowl, sometimes a folder or a drawer. I appreciate feedback that re-connects me to my ‘why’ — it’s strengthens both my gratitude and my motivation. Mwuah!

    Comment by Andrea — January 28, 2015 @ 7:15 pm

  18. Excellent Andrea!!!!

    Comment by Laura Clark — January 29, 2015 @ 9:18 pm

  19. This is such a great idea. I’m not good at saving things. Years of moving I guess. So if I had a special place like this I’d know where to put them. My next project, maybe I’ll get my daughters to make one too.

    Comment by Jane Lovas — January 28, 2015 @ 8:08 pm

  20. IT’s a fun project to do with daughters or friends!!!!

    Comment by Laura Clark — January 29, 2015 @ 9:18 pm

  21. What a beautiful idea! I absolutely love it. I am not good at keeping such things. But if I had a place to put them, I would be more likely to pay attention. We all need that confidence boost sometimes. Thanks Laura!

    Comment by Sarah Schwab — January 29, 2015 @ 3:05 pm

  22. Sarah~ it’s really wonderful to have this special place! I’m even taking screen shots and printing them off of love given to me over the internet-waves! I encourage you to try and let me know how it goes!

    Comment by Laura Clark — January 29, 2015 @ 9:20 pm

  23. I have been telling myself for 3 years now I would create something to reflect with… Maybe this was a great reminder that my time is now!

  24. Little Signs from the Universe when followed create massive results, Kelly!!! 🙂

    Comment by Laura Clark — February 15, 2015 @ 2:44 pm

  25. What a great idea. It’s important to keep these positive things near especially if you have a difficult time with negativity.
    I keep notes from my husband and children in memory box.
    I do think it will be fun for me to keep and decorate a love box. Thanks for the idea.

    Comment by Sara — February 14, 2015 @ 9:01 pm

  26. You’re Welcome, Sara! Share it with me when you have created one ~ I’d love to see it 🙂

    Comment by Laura Clark — February 15, 2015 @ 2:43 pm

  27. I love it Laura! What a lovely way to gain confidence for our self, while also providing a bolster to supporting others. A great way to develop and hold on to good feelings. And, what more is there to life than feeling good? 🙂
