This week’s post is the first part of a 3 week series on Balanced Beauty…..
You may not have ever thought about how “Beauty” effects your everyday Life so this series will be kind of like an introduction to the concept. There are areas in our Life where we, as women, need Balanced Beauty.
In talking about the physical realm of Beauty, we’re going to focus on you as a physical being. There are lots of ways we could discuss physical beauty in landscaping, architecture, music – but for the sake of this post we’re going to be focusing on you- with your physical body.
There’s a quote that I absolutely love…..
This is SOOOO true! And something that should really be focused on more – but come from an empowering place for each individual woman. When I read this quote- it really struck me at a deep level- like, every single woman has something beautiful about her. Maybe it’s her eyes or her hair or her amazing, glowing skin. Or maybe it’s the way she can pull off glasses that make her look ultra smart and ultra sophisticated. Maybe the lady in front of you in Starbucks is pulling off a color that you never even dare to try on-but she is rocking that Taupe like nobody’s business… that’s still an element of Beauty.
I often people watch when I’m in public places and I’ve found myself thinking of this quote more and more and challenging myself to find the physical quality that each woman radiates and makes her unique.
“That lady with the scowl on her face… Man, she has really pretty eyes.”
“That girl who just cut me off in the parking lot…. she has such pretty hair and I love her sideways braid! ”
“The woman (who just caught me staring at her) she has like the perfect cupid’s bow on her upper lip”
These are just thoughts that have run through my mind since first coming across the quote above.
A Lookin Good Girl Challenge:
1)Think about your own physical feature that makes you the stunning woman that you are. When you look in the mirror what do you see that makes you proud? That physical aspect of you that makes you go “DaaDamn- yea Francois I got it going on”.
2)While in a public place look around at the women you see and find their physical feature that stands out as beautiful.
Everyone woman has something beautiful about her … so find it! If you can, give the Lady a compliment on it , if you can’t, to yourself…silently Bless her Beauty.
How would it change your perspective of yourself and other woman, if you showed up everyday completely tapped into the fact your a Beautiful Woman?
What do you think would happen if women went around silently blessing each other’s Beauty. Hmmmmm?
Those are some questions to think about.
And make sure to check back in the next coming weeks for the other two areas you could benefit from Balanced Beauty in your every day life.
