You Are What You Think

A friend came to visit today whom I haven’t seen in over ten years. I was surprised to see that she had lost a considerable amount of weight and although I doubt she had lipoplasty done, I had to wonder. Perhaps it was all the stress she had to endure because of her rocky relationship with a boyfriend...

Which brings me to the topic of this post. When you stress out about anything in your life, it shows in your face whether you realize it or not. Believe me when I say that you are what you think about. If you think you are beautiful, well then, you will be beautiful (but don’t get a big head!) If you are constantly worried or feel insecure about the way you look, well, people can tell.

Wendy of Creation Thoughts has some great advice:

“...If you go shopping for clothes and you see an unpleasant image in the dressing room mirror and your mind begins its litany of negativity, "I'm so fat, oh my god, I can't believe they let a beast like me walk around in public, I'm never going to be beautiful, I should just wear a tent for god's sake!" -- stop yourself, close your eyes and call up an image of yourself looking radiant, healthy, beautiful, and fit. Recite your affirmation ("I am healthy, strong, lean, and sexy") with full faith that it is becoming your reality, moment by moment.”
