Sometimes, well most of the time if you are typically British, it feels kind of awkward to stand up and say nice things about yourself. In fact even thinking good thoughts about yourself can feel a tad tricky.
We can feel bad about “showing off”, remember being told not to be boastful, nobody likes a showoff etc? But think about it, being yourself saying the truth about what you know and what you’ve done isn’t showing off at all. It is just part of you.
You have to lose this “show off” tag and think of this as just good old self respect. Be prepared to wave your flag, stand up for yourself, pop your head above the parapet and say “This is me!!”.
So grab your flag, be it Scottish, English, American, Australian, French or whatever. Make it your own special personally designed fabulously wonderful flag. Even design and draw out a flag all for yourself, something really “you”.
Now imagine waving it and saying “woohoo world this is me!”.
Go on, fly your flag. Don’t wait for someone else to pick it up for you. Unfurl that fabric and wave it about.
