A question for you: when you get dressed or shop for clothes, is your main goal to show off your best assets or hide the ones you don’t love as much?
If you said you like to hide the assets you don’t love as much, you’re definitely not alone.
Here’s what happens when you get dressed with the perspective of hiding your body – from the get-go your energy for the process starts at a low, negative and deflating space.
Your focus shifts, and instead of operating from a place of creativity and self-love, you’re already busy critiquing and being judgmental. Not a good place to start from, am I right?
What if . . . you began getting dressed every day by admiring the parts of your body you love the most?
Imagine yourself happily focused on the many ways you can highlight and show off your body.
For instance, if you look smokin’ in emerald green, grab that gorgeous jewel-toned necklace from your jewelry box and put it on. Or if you know that those brand new heels show off your toned calves, be sure to wear them to work today.
Did you notice the shift? All of a sudden, your energy is brighter and you’re coming from a proud, loving and abundant place instead of focused on what doesn’t work. Feels better, doesn’t it?
Because this particular topic is so close to my heart, I want to offer you a challenge. Are you up for it?
