Finns inget sexigare än självförtroende

Finns inget sexigare än självförtroende

Fashion

Det finns två saker jag tänder på hos folk rent generellt. Det är självförtoende och genuinitet. Förstå mig inte fel. Ytlighet kan vara kul det med, så länge det görs med en stor dos självdistans. När jag säger ”tänder på” så syftar jag inte på det sexuella, även om det såklart är en rejäl turn on även även i sänghalmen. Jag syftar på vänner, kollegor, affärskontakter, mina favorittanter på ICA Nära i Lund, älskare, men i princip vem som helst. Jag är en udda fågel. Jag älskar att kolla på folk vare sig jag sitter på ett fik och ser dem passera eller går på stan. Jag analyserar och observerar. Inget går mig förbi. De säger att opposites attract, men i mitt fall dras jag nog till lika udda fåglar som mig själv. Om jag ser någon intressant person på stan så känner jag att ”fan vad den här personen är cool och chansen att jag någonsin går förbi personen igen är minimal (åtminstone i Malmö där jag inte har samma igenkänningsfaktor som hemma i Sthlm)” så jag går helt sonika fram till personen, säger ”shit vad du är cool, vill du fika nån gång?” och ger dem mitt visitkort. Det är faktiskt ungefär så jag träffat flera av mina närmsta och äldsta vänner om än i olika situationer. Har dock inte hittat alla mina vänner på gatan! 😉

Jag träffar så otroligt många människor konstant vilket har gjort mig kräsen. Jag har inte tid (ingen har det, man lever x antal dagar, sedan är man död, punkt) att umgås med slentrianmässiga kontakter som inte ger mig något i utbyte. Jag vill umgås med människor som tillför mitt liv något och som även jag kan tillföra något åt. Således har jag just nu en handfull handplockade vänner (det här funkar åt båda hållen, har inte tvingat någon att vara min vän) som förgyller mitt liv något oerhört. De som inte ryms i näven tillför även de något. Genom att vara starka personer gör de även mig stark. Självförtroende smittar av sig och fan vad det är sexigt!

För att snacka mode vill jag återigen slå ett slag för H&M. Jag älskar H&M. Innan den här plåtningen hade jag idétorka, men gick in på H&M, hittade en härlig tröja och vips så var jag glad för ynka 149 spänn. Lättköpt glädje måhända, men långvarig sådan. Att sedan allt annat jag har på mig också är från H&M var en slump. Det bevisar bara hur mångsidigt H&M är. Du kan verkligen klä upp dig eller klä ner dig genom hela spektrat från kostymer till streetmode. H&M är en sjukt vass aktör och även om den finns i lågprissegmentet med många konkurrenter finns det ingen som når upp till samma nivå. Om någon vill nörda ner sig i hur en grymt bra företagsstruktur är uppbyggd kan man läsa på om H&M. Det har jag gjort. De har full koll på vad som säljer i Haparanda, men inte i Halmstad och inom ett dygn har kläderna bytt plats. H&M har självförtroende som fan de med. Man kan ha självförtroende utan en massa yttre attribut. Genom att vara sig själv är man oemotståndlig, åtminstone för mig.

    It’s so important to be true to ourselves, but also get along with others. Self confidence is so attractive in a person, to see them be unequivocally themselves is refreshing in a world where people can try be something they’re not to fit into a certain mouldy that society has dictated we should be part of. stay true to you Thomas!

    I also really admire your self confidence! I’m a people watcher too, but wouldn’t be brave enough to go up to anyone!!

    Okay, were we separated at birth? Because in the first few paragraphs you pretty much described me – twins! Social butterfly but I like to keep to myself. Someone once said that’s an introverted extrovert (or was it extroverted introvert? Eh, either one). I think I confuse people slightly, but hey, sometimes that’s the fun in it 😉 Also, I agree you look quite fab. H&M is my favorite place to shop, especially on a budget, and that Looney Tunes top is super cute (although, I’ll agree Disney is even better). Love this post!

    LOL! Thomas your posts always crack me up. You and I would get along so well with those ”that’s what she said” jokes. HA! Anyways, I really loved this post and couldn’t agree more with you — there is nothing more than authenticity in a person that is more attractive! This is why I love you because you always keep it real. Thank you for always sharing such interesting and insightful posts with us. You’re such a big inspiration! xo, sharon

    This Daffy Duck sweater is too cute and I love the back of it. And totally agree, self confidence is the best accessory as they say so rock it. Nothing is more admirable than someone who owns it and struts it. Amen! xoxo, Christine

    Thomas, I LOVE this post! It truly is a pleasure reading what you’ve got to say, honestly. You make me laugh, nod in agreement with many of the things you share, as well as cause me to think (in a good way! haha). I think confidence is truly something to admire because not many of us have it, so when we see someone who embodies this quality (obviously in a healthy dose!) it really is quite awesome. Plus, being around such people can bring out the best in you because those who are truly confident don’t mind complimenting and encouraging you, too! Like, for example, you have no problem going up to someone and sharing a compliment. I’m the same way. I really strive to encourage and build up others I come in contact with, in whichever way I can, there’s always something nice we can say to someone and it would make their day, some their entire day! I’ve told you this before, but I’m going to say it again, you need to have your own graphic tee collection, seriously! You always wear such fun and interesting graphics and it’s become somewhat of your signature, too! I love this all black look, which has some edgy undertones, but the graphic adds a bit of quirkiness to it; I LOVE it! Thanks so much for sharing; I hope you’re having the BEST day so far!

    XO,

      Jalisa, you seriously are the sweetest ever! I totally should think about starting my own business of selling graphic tees as I know I’d at least have one customer buying them 🙂
      Have a great day as well!
      Love,
      Thomas

    I love reading your posts! So open, honest and personal!! Confidence, charisma, love for life … its all sexy! I believe that in order to be yourself, you have to feel comfortable within you own skin, and feel comfortable with your surroundings and life as a whole. Confidence can come and go so easily! You are fortunate to see so many people every day, not everyone lives in a city. There’s just something so fun to living in a city and interacting with people on the daily. Its my favorite thing ever! Thanks for sharing!! xo, Adelina

      Aww Adelina, thanks for your kind words! 🙂 But don’t think of the city as the only place where you can meet and interact with people in. You can do it equally well at your local supermarket, although I must admit the clientel might not be as exciting… Haha.

    I agree with this times a million! When people are confident it weirdly attracts me to them too. With fashion especially! When anyone acts like they own their look, I am sold.
    I adore your oversized sweatshirt & distressed jeans- super on trend without being over the top about it.
    Also, you are a great writer and seem so genuine! Love to have found you through insta xoxo
