Hi everyone and happy Monday. Today is a brand new day, a brand new week, and a brand new month. So this is a great time for a fresh start and setting new goals and challenges.
I wanted to set a new little challenge for both myself and for you guys for this month. The challenge is called ‘The Self Appreciation Challenge’.
I often hear from my clients, and sometimes models, variations of the following phrase: ‘Oh it must be really hard work for you to get rid of my pimples/dark circles around my eyes/to make me look half decent’ etc etc. Yet, what I see is, beautiful eyes, beautiful lips, beautiful skin, super long eyelashes. Why do we always focus on the one thing that might not be ‘perfect’, when we have so many other amazing features?
A lot of people have the perception that beautiful means that everything must look completely flawless and perfect. But, I ask you to define flawless or perfect? What one person thinks is perfect, another does not. And the truth is, it’s actually our imperfections that make us beautiful, what makes us interesting, what makes us unique. So now to the challenge.
How it works:
Each Monday in the month of June, I’m going to ask you to tell me something that you like about yourself. Each week there will be a different theme. This weeks theme is:
Week 1: SOMETHING THAT YOU LIKE ABOUT YOUR BODY
I’ll get the ball rolling. I quite like my eyes. I like their colour, which is green, but they also have some flecks of gold in there too. So I love how wearing a complimentary colour like purple eyeshadow really brings out the colour and makes them sparkle.
I’d really love to hear from you guys now. Tell us all something that you like about yourself. Post a picture if you want to also. Don’t be shy. It can be anything at all, your lips, your legs, your ears, your knees, whatever you like. And every single one of you has something beautiful. This is also hard for me to do, but we can do this together and support each other.
This is’nt exclusive to the ladies either, guys are also more than welcome to comment. Everyone needs a bit of self-appreciation every now and then. So let’s do this together and be good to ourselves this month. Because we’re amazing. 🙂
