There is a negative inner voice that says things like:
“you’re too old”
“you don’t deserve to be the centre of attention”
“you’re not pretty enough” “you’re too _________!”
Where does this voice come from? Throughout our lives we internalise things that we’ve heard. You might be repeating something in your head that a boy said to you in grade five – something that was so painful at the time that it’s been burned into your memory.
But think about it. You’ve heard it a thousand times because you’ve let it replay in your head. It actually only happened once! And who cares what he thinks now?!?!
If that same 10-year-old boy was standing in front of you right now, would you even give him the time of day?
Give him the hand and move on. Recognize the multiplier effect of saying negative things in your own head.
YOU are in control of your own thoughts.
Instead, the next time you look in the mirror, find something about yourself that you love. Start repeating THAT over and over.
Next day: repeat.
I hope you will join me over the month of June on my Facebook page for 30 Days of Gorgeous.
I will be featuring a different woman each day who you might relate to and definitely be inspired by.
These are REAL Calgary women between the ages of 34 and 60.
Before I photographed them, they said things to me like:
“I am not photogenic”
“I've struggled for years to accept
“I just need to feel better about me”
But they still showed up.
They pushed themselves out of their comfort zones and were blown away by their own beauty.
There were many happy tears, lots of laughs and many of them had a mindset shift.
As they looked at photos of themselves, they started to say things like:
“I can’t stop looking at myself – I’m
“I’ve never seen myself like that
“I love them all”
The point of my campaign in June is to start to shift the mindset of women who feel like they aren’t “enough”.
I believe every woman is beautiful – at every stage of her life.
All 30 of these women are gorgeous, inspiring and REAL.
I loved meeting them and I know you will too, so please follow along on Facebook with me!
Like and follow my page to ensure you receive notifications and don’t miss a day.
There will be some exciting announcements that I’ll be making on Facebook during the month of June and you will want to know about them (hint, hint)!
Join my community of women who want to lift each other up and feel beautiful. It's called:
Don't Hate Me Cos I'm Beautiful
It's all about turning off that internal voice that tells you that you're not 'enough'.
