The focus of this week’s post is all about Balanced Beauty in the Emotional Realm.
Specifically, how you feel about Beauty and what the little voice in your head says most of the time. In last week’s post I challenged readers to start paying attention to the physical aspects of Beauty; both for themselves and others. And I’m wondering what the results were. What surfaced when you were presented with the challenge to look at the part of yourself that you really Love? Did you find a part of your physical Beauty that you really Love????? There could be a wide spectrum of responses and feelings and this week I want to draw your attention to how you feel about your Beauty.
If you could take 2 minutes and inventory your self talk around how you look- what would the results be?
Is 95% of what you say to yourself Positive, semi-positive or down right Negative? When you look in the mirror what is your initial reaction? Do you start in on how your nose is to0 big, your pores are too big, your forehead is too big?? What is your first response when you see yourself?
I would love for this post to be kind of like a wake-up call or at least a mini-reminder to check your self talk around Beauty.
How much energy are you spending every day focusing on a perceived negative aspect of your self? Think about it… if you look in the mirror 10 times today and every single time your mind goes into some variation of “I’m ugly”.. that’s A LOT of TIME and ENERGY that’s gonna create crappy feelings. And pardon the boldness of the next message, but; that’s A LOT of WASTED TIME & ENERGY that’s going into creating crappy feelings. You could be using your time and energy in a much better way.
This week’s challenges:
1) Tune in to your initial response to looking in the mirror. What comes up for you in the way of emotions and feelings? Is it something positive?? Awesome, you get a gold star. Take some of that positive Mojo into the world and pass it around. Is your self talk negative? That’s alright… move on to part 2
2) Ask yourself; “Is it beneficial for my self-esteem and confidence to continue this negative self-talk? “Are these mean things I say to myself actual even true? Hone in on one area that you find you keep harping on in regards to your Beauty and make a choice to stop the insanity of being a meany to yourself.
Your Emotional Balanced Beauty is totally up to you! It’s called Free-Will and you get to decide how you wanna feel about your self! True story.
I’m going to leave you with a song by this guy named Bruno Mars… maybe you’ve heard of him? Anyway, I LOVE (love, love, love) this song!!!! So….I want you to imagine how your day would be if you looked into the mirror and felt this way about yourself. Heck, go ahead and sing it to yourself!
Last week Francois Nars reminded us that; “Every woman has something beautiful about her”.
This week Mr. Mars reminds us that; “Pretty girl, pretty girl, pretty girl, you should be smiling….A girl like you should never look so blue”
And it’s true.. but it’s up to you to make the choice to see yourself as Beautiful AND feel that way!
