Today’s Affirmation: “My Body Is Beautiful and I LOVE it”
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is a very common phrase that rings truth. Beauty comes in ALL shapes, sizes, and colors. Oftentimes, we can be overly focus on outer beauty, rather than inner beauty. Whether the focus is on oneself or another person, usually it is not uplifting. Especially, if it is about ourselves we can be our worst critic.
At times, I’m guilty of my inner critic because, I’m very self- conscious about my body. Specially, when I’m at the beach, I usually like to keep some parts covered. My friends would look at me like I’m “crazy”. They’ll say to me ” why are you covering up? you look fine.” Most people wouldn’t guess that I’m self-conscious do to my small frame. But it’s true, it’s all mental— how I perceive myself. However, I must admit that I have grown tremendously in this area. Appreciating my body and embracing my beauty (inside & outer) is an act of SELF-LOVE.
Though average person may not meet the criteria of popular beauty standards that are measured by society expectations. You have to remember that YOU are BEAUTIFUL! The more you LOVE yourself and appreciate your body, you will make better and healthier choices that will enhance your BEAUTY!
