Are you up for a Challenge?

Sometimes I am spot-on with life timing, and then sometimes I get to things a little too late. But then I realized that it's never too late to start spreading more beauty messages! So let's hear it for the Beauty Message Challenge!!!


[From their website]

What is the CHALLENGE? Tell yourself beauty messages three times a day for 10 days so that you build self confidence and experience more joy in who you are! By taking the challenge you will see how telling yourself the truth about your strengths and accomplishments changes your day.

WHAT IS A BEAUTY MESSAGE? It is an affirming statement about something you are proud of or love about yourself. It can be a simple or detailed statement that when read positively changes the outlook on yourself and your day. For example: “ I walk into work everyday with a smile on my face to lift others spirits. My care for others is beautiful and so am I.”

WHAT DO I GAIN? Seeing yourself as beautiful for who you are is a self-confidence building exercise. We often speak of the problems of low self-esteem but here are the benefits of self-confidence:

  • Go Power: Believing in yourself and knowing your strengths will help you move towards your goals even when obstacles and challenges come up.
  • Positive Outlook: Feeling good about who you are spills over into how you see your life. People who feel good about themselves easily see the good in their life.
  • Social Ease: Self-confidence leads to more freedom to share ideas and connect with people without fear of rejection.
  • Physical Health: Confident people experience less stress and worry. Stress is a leading factor in numerous health problems.
This has been going on the entire month of September and there is fantastic material available on their website, facebook, and twitter feeds!

So are you up for the challenge? Can you commit to telling yourself you are beautiful for 10 days?? Let's start right now, and practice by leaving a comment about a beauty message for yourself!
