A cup of Espresso with Sabrina Carpenter

What really defines you?

In her latest song, Sabrina refers to herself as espresso, the idea of her that keeps people awake at night – like how espresso would.  

“The song is kind of about seeing femininity as your super power, and embracing the confidence”, she tells Vogue.

Not everyone  is as confident and attractive as Sabrina Carpenter.  What if we are struggling to see our own super power and embracing ourselves?

Stop chasing for validation from others

When we place our value on  things or other people’s validation, we stand on shifting sand. Situations are always shifting, relationship, status, job titles, friendships, physical appearance,  etc change. That can make us feel that we are not enough, special, or important.

I used to struggle with this issues and would try to completely detach myself from wanting validation from others as I have no control over them.

While it’s easy to say that we should not be defined by these things, it’s very hard to believe it. So I’m slowly learning  to place lesser emphasis on them.

Believe in just one good thing

I’ve been struggling to find confidence from within and to love myself. I’m attuned to think that good things will eventually come to an end as I don’t deserve them.

It was a vicious cycle of not loving myself, expecting bad things to happen and when they do happen, not loving myself enough to know how to break free from it.

As time went on, I tried to focus on one good thing of the day. Just one. And slowly, I felt happier and counted my blessings more.

Perhaps that’s the meaning of Sabrina’s metaphor of an Espresso – to focus on the good things that makes us excited about life!
