For 2015 and for always, you need to change.
But I’m not talking about changing your weight or your love of chocolate – I’m talking about your love of yourself. So often, we fill ourselves with self-deprecating thoughts. I’m not pretty. I’m not that smart. I’m just not that great. And I’m definitely not beautiful.
First things first: you are beautiful. And this is an operation to prove it. Introducing: Operation Beautiful. Where we celebrate the beauty in each and every one of us. Now let’s hop to it – these girlies are fan-freakin-tastic.
I feel most beautiful when…I’m being myself, which is laid back, casual, but still trendy! Wearing no make-up, and rocking my big hair!
My favorite physical features is my…Hair, as of late! It’s wild, red, and curly. It sets me apart from other people.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is…The compassion that I have for others.
I’m happiest when…I can make someone else happy.
I feel most beautiful when…I’m living a healthy lifestyle. When I get a proper amount of sleep, eat a balanced diet, get my daily dose of exercise, and when I smile a lot.
My favorite physical features are my…Eyes. I love how blue they are, so blue that strangers have no issue complimenting me on how blue they are. There’s something about being able to look in a mirror without trying to live up to society’s standard of beauty, and seeing my eyes glowing with natural beauty.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is…My mental strength. I’ve had to overcome a lot of adversity already in my life, and I’m always able to fight and come back stronger. I make an effort to put on a smile even on the toughest days.
I’m happiest when…I feel at peace with everything going on in my life. When my goals are being achieved, when I’m surrounded by people who love me and positive energy, and when my actions match my thoughts and feelings.
I feel most beautiful when..I’m ballroom dancing with my teammates and friends
My favorite physical feature is my…Hair. After years of trying to hide my natural hair, I’ve finally embraced the curls!
Something non-physical that I love about myself is…My ability to juggle a lot of different things in my life. I love being involved in a wide range of projects and activities. It makes me feel accomplished and happy!
I’m happiest when..I’m with my friends. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, I love being around them because they’re all such wonderful people!
