+ Sometimes, we have a unique twist to our appearance that makes us self-conscious.
Those dark freckles that stand out on people? Ummm… they are called beauty marks for a reason – it’s a unique piece of you that no one has! I recently met a woman with eyes that were 2 different colors. One of them was actually half blue and half brown. Wow ~ I thought she was stunning! Rock out and embrace what makes you different!!
So…… what’s a girl or guy to do?
Be your own kind of beautiful by embracing YOUR size
I have a pal who is a curvy girl- about 5’4” & probably around 200lbs. She can walk into a bar, flaunt her curves with class and flirt with any guy she sets her sights on. She’s so comfortable in her own skin, I am in awe of her confidence and it’s inspiring
Be your own kind of beautiful by making healthy changes to feel good
Sometimes we do need to make a shift to embrace our beautiful. That can be a face cream, a healthier diet, shaving our goatee, coloring our hair or sometimes even something more radical.
I have a friend who had a nose job in college. This surgery transformed her from a self-conscious girl to a confident fire ball. Sometimes, we need a powerful shift in order to step into our true beautiful.
+ Be your own kind of beautiful by noticing what you do appreciate about your appearance
Stop stressing the things that stress you out! Flip the switch and embrace the things you like. And if there’s nothing here…. Find one thing – even a tiny thing.
Offer your mind a positive message about your body and watch your spirit start to glow! Also, it’s important to mention that Comparing, Contrasting and Commenting on other people’s appearance is self-destructive and can also be very hurtful to them (see skinny example above:) and it doesn't do anything to help you :)
Ask yourself right now – what is one thing I like about how I look? That my friends is your own kind of beautiful :) Carry that with you today and allow it to make you feel fabulous… Let me know how it goes.
I saw this poem once and it stuck with me…
All bodies beautiful, Be Yourself – not someone else
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

It really doesn’t matter
