Self-Confidence Over 40-Something and Not Being Afraid to Go For It

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Invisalign®.  As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed on my blog are all mine.

It’s tough for busy moms to carve time out for themselves. Between work, school, and after-school activities, not to mention the whole what’s for dinner dilemma, I don’t often find myself with much down time but I know how important it is to take care of myself.

If I’m feeling good about myself and not overloaded it definitely helps boost my confidence. Whether taking time out to exercise or get a massage or maybe even just take a hot bubble bath, it helps me to recharge. Now that I’m in my 40s I also try to encourage myself to do new things and take on new challenges. Since turning 40 I’ve traveled to Kenya to one of the world’s largest slums on behalf of Every Girl Counts, I’ve joined a great business networking group called Femfessionals and serve on the local board, and I traveled to Beverly Hills and attended a Variety Magazine/Honda event honoring powerful women in Hollywood. I’ve changed jobs and I’ve learned to say no. In essence, I am finding that being 40-something can rock!

Have you heard of Invisalign? It’s a great discreet solution to straightening your teeth and an alternative to metal braces that may make you self conscious about your smile. I wore old school braces for years during my awkward middle school and high school years and I would have smiled so much more confidently had Invisalign been an option!
