Do you sometimes feel like you live in a fishbowl? Especially as a parent of young kids, your every move feeling scrutinized by glaring eyes in the grocery store. Or your teenager’s every post on social media a reflection of how you parent?
For many of us, the peanut gallery just adds insult to injury. We don’t need the added pressure of the critics or the perfect family on social media to feel like we’re not living up to the expectations we have of ourselves. One person who lives with these feelings heightened to the nth degree is our friend and America’s beloved “DJ Tanner,” Candace Cameron Bure.
In spite of living in the fishbowl of Hollywood, Candace lives, loves, and leads with a confidence so many admire. In this episode, she graciously invites us behind the picture frame of her own family. With candor, Candace describes how she filters out the noise of the critics and who she allows to have access to her heart.
Based on her new book, Staying Stylish: Cultivating a Confident Look, Style, and Attitude, Candace talks about how she cultivates confidence. However, as you’ll learn, this didn’t happen overnight. Candace details for us:
- What she learned living “in the invisible” as a stay-at-home mom for 10 years while her kids were little
- How she decides who can have access to her heart
- Why it’s important for moms and wives to feel good about themselves (and their style) and how to do it
- How she and her husband, Val, navigate raising three teenagers in a social media driven world
- The single biggest factor for her in maintaining confidence as a wife, mom, and actor
