Challenge 5: <3 love that reflection part 1
What's happening my lovely fudgies?! <3
I have had a great response to my first article for Drop of Pink (havent seen it yet? http://www.dropofpink.com/2012/03/20/3-tricks-to-feel-beautiful-every-time-you-look-in-the-mirror/)
So I decided to go more in depth into each of my three tips: Let's start with the 2nd little trick I gave: «Spot 3 things you like about yourself; it can be the most crazy, bizarre attributes, but if you think about, getting a compliment from someone always boosts our confidence a little, no matter how random.So just focus on those three things while you’re getting ready, and that huge pimple or those horrible under eye circles will magically recede from your vision.
This is a trick I learnt during my treatment (Thanks Falin!) and I must say it is probably the most effective one.
Explination: Our eyes aren't actually the ones «seeing things»; they only capt the information and send it to our brain, and that tricky little bastard can do whatever he wants with those images. If you start looking for those good things, you'll skate by those minor imperfections. By choosing what your brain focuses on before that bitchy, whiny voice comes and tells you what part of your body you hate that day, YOU ARE in control of your sight, and therefor, your self-esteem. :)
challenge: Before leaving the house, find your reflection in a mirror, windom, your cat's eyes, whatever :P Look for 3 things you like about yourself, and NOT 100000 things you hate (dont lie, I know you do). Like I said in the quote, it can be litterally anything, and even things that not everyone might like, but you do because they make you different (BONUS POINTS RIGHT THERE)
So as you go through the day, if you ever happen to stumble upon your reflection, know where to look and stay focused :)
Tip: Studies show that by doing something 21 days in a row, it becomes a habit. Send yourself a reminder or write in your agenda if you need to.
Aiigghhht, Hope you all enjoy,
