Okay, enough with the name calling! You know what I mean, when your looking in the mirror taking inventory of all the things that are wrong. For example, there are times when I think “Girl where’s the beeper, my ass is getting so big”! (then I grab a Starbucks coffee with whip cream and life is all good). Seriously, we all do it as women, we compare ourselves to magazine models, remember when times, and almost anyone younger than ourselves.
We are all beautiful, loving, caring women who are successful in our own right. Yes, we have a few flaws, a few extra pounds (blame kids), and poor diets because our to-do-list is a mile long. But, we are still amazing, sure we need to work on things but we need to do it in a positive way.
So, you have heard about positive thinking and how it works. Right? Thinking positive affects your brain which affects your heart which encourages change. Today pick up a small grease board or cork board and hang it
on or near your bathroom mirror or your most frequent area. If you spend more time in the kitchen place it there. If you’re at your desk most of the day hang it there. The idea is to see the board throughout your day or first thing in
the morning and right before bed. Now each night write a positive message to yourself and read it often. When you
wake up read it out load and remember it as you go about your day. Examples of positive words/phrases are.
· I am Beautiful
· I am Smart
· I am Talented
· I will rock my meeting today
· My smile will light up the room today
Man my Cleavage looks good in this shirt ;o)
· I Rock Baby
· Today I will kick butt
· Hot & Sexy you Know it!
The Idea is to feel good about yourself and your day. Confidence radiates from people who feel good about themselves. These messages should mean something to you and encourage you to be your best. Let’s do this
together and change our internal dialogue and stop focusing on our negatives and bring out our positives. As moms we are always supportive, encouraging and optimistic when our children come to use with uncertainties in their lives. We need to love ourselves as much as we love our children. We need to see the bigger picture, because we can achieve our goals!
Tell us your positive message to yourself, what motivates you?
