How will you be beautiful today?
What I am about to share with you has taken me time too.
But I want you to know it is possible to be fulfilled in life and be happy in your body in who you ARE!
I have embraced my perfect imperfections will you embrace yours too?
When I work with my clients they are surprised to learn how they can banish their negative and self-defeating behaviors.
A simple act of stopping really stopping and looking in the mirror as your own best friend.
Giving yourself permission to shine without validation from anyone else!
Makes a real difference.
Strange to accept but true, what we see as our flaws, what we use as reason to hold us back may be the very reason why we are loved.
How many times today, this week, or in the last few days have you walked by or stood in front of your mirror any mirror and the reflection was not what you hoped to see?
To what lengths did you go to, to avoid the mirror altogether? Or work towards presenting yourself how you think the world wants to see you?
If you find yourself comparing your body, your hair, your complexion, or any of your features to celebrities, models in magazines, your sister, or your family and friends, it is time for a change.
The thing that makes you, me, and every person in the world beautiful cannot be measured by comparing yourself to airbrushed supermodels.
The thing about each of us, and what we all share in common, is that we are all imperfect.
I don’t just mean imperfect physically, but being imperfect is simply part of being a unique human.
Remember there is no one out there that is quite like you.
Imagine how your life would change if you embraced your imperfections.
In fact, your imperfections are what make you YOU!
What Do You Love Most About Others?
Stop for a moment and take a look at the people in your life. The real people, not the celebs whose job it is to “look” perfect. Consider what you like most about your cherished friends and family.
It’s not their hair.
It’s not their makeup.
It’s not their body.
And even if you love their sense of style, it’s not their wardrobe.
Even if you appreciate a person’s hair, makeup, body, and wardrobe, what you like about them are the specific things that make them unique.
You love the way their smile goes all the way up to their eyes.
You love the way their laughter fills a room.
You love their quirky sense of humor.
You love their ability to listen, their optimism, unique perspective and their warmth, their energy, and the way they make you feel, like you are the only person in the room when they are talking to you.
You love their unique beauty!
Is Really What Is On The Inside That Counts?
If the things you love most about others have nothing to do with whether or not their body or features are “perfect”, then you are placing too much time and energy on your reflection in the mirror.
Consider This: Even when you find someone to be physically attractive, if they are selfish, mean, or arrogant, you will begin to see them as unattractive from the inside out.
On the flip side, have you ever meet someone who you didn’t really notice at first, but after getting to know who they are on the inside, they become the most beautiful person you know?
So why is it that we don’t take the time to accept ourselves in that way?
Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life
What would happen if, every time you looked in the mirror, you focused on what makes you, You? You gave yourself the same level of attention and admiration you give to others?
Your eyes, your curves, the way your hair frames your face. Your sense of humor, your caring nature, or your ability to listen, your passion, your determination?
If it seems like the notion of appreciating your uniqueness is impossible, know that it is possible!
The second you invest more time focusing on the positives in all areas of your life is the exact same second your life will drastically change for the better!
Appreciating our unique traits, our external and our internal beauty does not mean living every moment that way. It means realizing this moment is a new opportunity to be who you want to be, and making the effort to seize it.
Next time you’re feeling stressed, or unhappy, or uncertain, remember this you are beautiful! You can do whatever you put your mind too!
Before you go, I would love to hear your thoughts and please do share.
With Love Wajeeha
P.s Just a thought to leave you with....
"The source of love is deep in us and we can help others realize a lot of happiness. One word, one action, one thought can reduce another person's suffering and bring that person joy"
