For so many women beauty is what we see in magazines and on TV, we don’t focus on inner beauty or our own uniqueness. Don’t roll your eyes and tell me “I know that already” Well do you?
How many times do you go into your bathroom and look at yourself and compare yourself to those women on TV or in magazines? How many times do you pick yourself apart? I need to lose weight, I have my frizzy hair, my butt needs to be smaller so on and so forth.
What about taking a good long look at yourself and see the things you do like about yourself? Do you like your smile? Do you like the way your legs look in a skirt? Does your face light up when you smile? Notice the things you love about yourself! Only when you can honestly say you love you, that is the time you will show others your confidence and your inner beauty. You will walk with an air of pride because you love you!
Stop listening to the negative thoughts in your head:
I am a failure
I don’t deserve….
I wish I had…
This will never work out….
These thoughts only bring you down! Find that powerful woman warrior inside of yourself the one that tells you:
You are beautiful
You are successful
You do deserve this or that
It will work out
Think of the negative thoughts as a knarled old tree. Darkness surrounding it, no animals around, the way the branches are leaning towards the ground and the bark is falling off it.
Then think of the positive thoughts as that giant oak tree, standing there magnificent, tall and proud. The sun is shining behind the tree, the birds are singing and building their homes and the branches are rising to the sun to meet the day!
Which do you want to be?
Do you remember the old saying “I am woman hear me roar!” We as women need to stand up and be proud of ourselves, our bodies, our homes, our careers, our choice to stay home with the kids, or our choice to work outside the home. There is enough negative thoughts around us each day, don’t let your own thoughts be another thing to tear you down.
We, as women, tend to give out all our positive energy to our families and friends and all we are left with is the negative energy. Many times we don’t even realize it till we are sick or tired or wondering where to go next.
When you have negative thoughts go write them down on a piece of paper, walk over to the sink and with a lighter or match and light the paper while saying “I release all negative thoughts and energy. I will only allow positive thoughts to rule inside of me”.
So be proud of who you are, no matter what imperfections you may have. Would you want to live in a world were everyone looked the same, acted the same? I know I wouldn’t.
