How often have we wished that our hair looks like someone else, or our body looked like the model in the magazine? The reality is that none of that is who we are. It is just what we look like. We are not our body, we are our deepest truth inside our hearts. And that is where we want our light to really shine from.
So it is mind over matter: take your body confidence to that next level. Define yourself by your own standards. That is what matters.
This post is a contributed post. That means that ariel did not write the entire post.
The human body really is a wonderful thing. It has the ability to grow, heal and adapt. The problem is that with the society we live in, it can be hard to feel appreciative of our bodies.
And this is because there are so many things out there telling us how we should look and how we should act. This can really have an impact on the body confidence you do have, and it can also make you feel like nothing you do will ever make you feel better.
Your Body is Incredible!
Your body is designed to function. Think of all the ways that your body has been good to you, for example, it gives you the ability to work out, to change your weight completely and more.
It also gives you the chance to move around with hardly any effort, so take the time to think about how wonderful your body really is. Your body is way more than what you see it as.
Perfection is Boring
Perfection is boring, and it’s also impossible. It’s time to get real, and that means knowing that the models in magazines look at themselves negatively sometimes.
Being happy doesn’t automatically come from having a great body because nothing is perfect and if it were then you would not have any ounce of personality. It’s important to embrace your imperfections and it also helps to look at yourself in the mirror every single day.
You need to be grateful for the body that you have because it is a powerful being and this can really help your brain to see you for who you really are.
If you are not happy with certain aspects of your appearance then consider changing this, but don’t rush into making decisions and don’t let your low confidence make those decisions for you either.
For example, if you want to change your smile, consider visiting websterdentalarts.com to see if they can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Don’t Wish You Were Someone Else
We are all unique so it helps to fall in love with yourself rather than in the idea of being someone else. Comparing your body is the best way for you to hinder your body confidence.
Remember that you don’t know what is around the corner and you also don’t know what other people are thinking either. After all, they could be wishing that they had your hair, or even your legs.
This is one of the best ways for you to really make the most out of the body you have right now.
For me, as an artist, wearing clothes is yet another form of a blank canvas. How do I feel today? What color is talking to me today? What makes me feel so flowy and lovely? And when I step into my clothes I am feeling confident and ready to see the world.
And I am always amazed at how many people stop me to remark on my clothes. So go out there, be brave, bold and beautiful. You are so very worth it.
Another way for you to boost your body confidence would be for you to wear clothes that make you feel good. Don’t be afraid to go out there and spend, and don’t worry about how you are going to look in a certain piece of clothing.
Try and do everything you can to wear clothes you love, and not clothes that you think look good on other people.
Sometimes when we were young, we wanted to look like someone else, or be someone else. Until finally we realize, there is no one more amazing than ourselves. When we get to that place, our path opens to our own truth and we we see what we need to know.
Trying to emulate another takes away from our capacity to go forward on our own path. So do pick out the clothes that make you feel shiny and beautiful. And do not give time or thought to what others think about your choices. That belongs to them, it has nothing to do with you. It is just merely their opinion.
So do not let your body image define anything less than the beauty you are. It is mind over matter. Because we are so very worth it!
What do you think about this? Are you willing to let go of judgment and see your very own beauty? I so hope you are! Please do let me know your thoughts!
We are not society’s thoughts, we are our own. And we rock!
