Over the last week or so I have been sharing some tips for how to be your most beautiful you this year. But today is a big one...so I thought a full on blog post was in order! First let's do a quick run down of the first 4 things that I think you can practice this year to make 2015 amazing!
#1 Be authentic:
There is only one you and the world really needs to see and experience those things about you that really make you YOU. Don't be afraid of them...own those special things about yourself.
#2 Be honest:
Here I am referring to being honest with yourself. Of course, it is important to be honest with others too; but so many people tell themselves negative lies about themselves. These lies weigh us down and hold us back. They keep us from reaching our full potential! For example: "I am not talented enough" or "I am not skinny enough" or "I am not smart enough"...or maybe just "I am not enough". Those things are lies! They are not your truth unless you allow them to become so. So be honest with yourself, be true to yourself and cut away the lies that hold you back and weigh you down.
#3 Be confident:
There are few things in the world that are more beautiful than a confident woman. I have a friend that swears that a nice matching bra and panty set is foundational to her confidence. Personally, I like to be wearing a great pair of shoes...oh and have a good hair day! Each of us have different things that give us a shot of confidence. In fact, a special beauty or boudoir photography session with me might be just the thing to give you a little extra boost in your step!
#4 Be Positive:
This is related to the lies from #2. Instead of those lies you tell yourself; practice being positive to yourself. Look in the mirror and find something beautiful about you and then say it out loud! It might feel odd, it might be HARD...but I think you will be surprised at the effect a little extra positivity has on your outlook and your life.
That brings us to tip number 5...BE GENEROUS.
Nothing improves your outlook like helping someone else out. And there are so many ways to be generous...with your talents, with your time, with your money...even with your words. So go out of your way to give as many heartfelt and genuine compliments as possible over the next couple of days. I would love to hear about the impact that effort has on you!
In the spirit of being generous I am going to be giving away one free beauty makeover and photography session package. This is an amazing deal, and there is only one available! It will include 45 minutes of photography time, professional hair and makeup styling and an adorable little black book with 10 images in it. The only catch...you must be willing to sign a model release so I can do a blog post about you! This can be a beauty session, glamour session or boudoir session. As always, that is totally up to the you...my client.
