SHIFT #6: Being nothing but ME and loving it.
This is something that I am ALWAYS working on and over the years it's gotten much easier. But guess what? I'm human and comparison has a funny way of sneaking in. Ladies you know what I mean. You look at other women and think why don't I have that? Or I wish I was like her. Or she's better at that than me. I bet she doesn't struggle with ___ like me.
Plus being in a career where women are told to cake on makeup, cut and color their hair, only where certain colors in order to make you "prettier" on camera.
Top that off with being told you're not good enough, pretty enough, you're just average, stupid, dumb, etc. for years in relationships, it takes a toll.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE ME. I've worked DAMN hard to get to where I am. And I have great things going for me! But that doesn't mean that I don't have my weak moments...
In those moments I can feel myself get sad, jealous, envious and I even start to doubt myself. If it gets bad enough I even start to pick myself apart like I used to do everyday in the past (Man, was I miserable.) Ladies, WHY do we do that to ourselves?!
This shift is going to be focused on being nothing but myself!
I've picked apart myself for having flat,"mousey" blonde hair, but NOW I am THANKFUL for being a natural blonde (some women would kill for that) and more importantly I'm thankful for the long hair I do have. My skin my not be perfect, freckles and all. But I'd like to think that each imperfection stands for a great adventure I've had in my life. Times where I've tilted my head up and soaked in the sun. The list goes on and on... I encourage each of you to give it a shot. Let's stop the comparison and love ourselves for the unique individuals that we are! "Comparison is the thief of joy." And I'm choosing JOY. Be YOU. Embrace YOU. Love YOU. Cause there's only one YOU. And that's pretty badass. ****
17 days until launch day.
