What makes you feel beautiful?
Is it a must-have lipstick, a go-to hairstyle or that perfect little black dress? Or is it something less tangible, like a positive state of mind, an uplifting emotion or a great mood?
If you’re like me, it’s probably a delicate balance of many different things, but after three decades of experience in the beauty industry, one thing that’s always certain to make me feel beautiful is exploring new ways to appreciate beauty – within myself, in the people around me and in the world.
Here are three affirmations that have always helped inspire me to feel beautiful – mind, body and soul!
I discover more of my natural beauty every day
Explore the ideas and activities that enhance what makes you naturally beautiful, inside and out. Whether it’s taking good care of your skin, exercising and eating healthful foods, focusing on positive affirmations, or trying new looks and trends, find your favorite ways to feel balanced and beautiful and make them a part of your life every single day.
I think beautiful thoughts and radiate beautiful energy
No matter what you look like or what you’re wearing, no matter where you are or who you’re with, no matter the environment or circumstances you’re in, always try to keep your thoughts and feelings focused within a beautiful, positive mindset. It can be challenging, especially in a sometimes seemingly ugly world, but when you think beautifully and feel beautiful, it will inspire beautiful thoughts and feelings in those around you.
I choose to see beauty first
Always look for the beauty in everything you see and experience, and stop paying so much attention to what you perceive as imperfections. When you look at your reflection in the mirror, focus on your uniquely beautiful features instead of wasting energy fretting about flaws. The same goes for your life – find the beauty in your everyday life and stop worrying about how your unique journey compares to the lives of other people.
