|I am beautiful!|
The truth is, beauty is an attitude. It isn't about being a certain size, or looking a certain way. Beauty isn't about what people see on the outside. It's about what we project from the inside. What we project shapes what they see.
Taking care of ourselves gives us that attitude, and makes us feel good inside. This goes for the big stuff like annual health exams, to the everyday personal care things that help us put our best forward. Our nutrition and exercise are key components of that along with getting adequate sleep and hydration.
When we feel good we project the attitude of beauty, and that's what people see. If you're feeling like a frump down in the dumps, take a few minutes every day to focus on you. Take care of your needs; pack your lunch, take your vitamins, go for a walk, put lotion on your hands and massage those gnarly cuticles, put your blush on and a swipe of gloss on those lips (not you - guys), sip a cup of herbal tea...what ever you need. Make an effort to bring out your attitude of beauty, you might just like what you see!
