So...me being a girl and all...I have dealt with body image issues...what girl doesn't at some point? If you don't more power to you...but if you say you've never been affected by that...I say think harder...

I stumbled upon the show "How to Look Good Naked" on Lifetime this week. I can't speak for the whole series, but as I watched this particular episode, I was encouraged by the mental and emotional transformation of these sisters.

Confidence is so important! So, since we ladies tend to focus on our flaws...here's my challenge: Let's list our 3 favorite physical attributes...notice I said physical...don't list that you are compassionate, I'm glad you are, but not the focus here...and don't just say something like your earlobe...Let's encourage one another...We are beautiful whether we feel like it or not...though it's probably not easy to compliment yourself, you can think of 3 things right?...I'm sure there are more...but we'll do this in baby steps...but if you have more you wanna list...go for it!

My list:

1) My eyes (yes, that's why there are about 6 songs on my playlist that mention green eyes)
2) My height
3) My lips

So, what are your 3?

6 remarks:

interesting post. I have seen commercials for that show. I love your three...I'm still thinking up mine. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog!

Yes, definitely your eyes...they're beautiful! I don't really know what mine would be...I'll think about it and get back to you on this one.

hmmmm...

...and you said I couldn't say "I have a great personality?"...yeah, ok...

ok...thanks for the encouragement...but make sure you do come back to put your 3...the easiest would be to list them while you're here... :)

Ok, I'm back...

1. My smile. People say I have a nice smile.
2. My hair...not necessarily how it behaves, but the color. I like being a red-head...I'm embracing my red-headedness :)
3. My boobs...they're not too small, but not too big...

ok, there's my 3

1. My Eyes (I like how they pop and everyone tells me I have pretty eyes so therefore I have to believe them :) )
2. My Lips!!! (they are BIG)
3. My Hair, because it normally is easy to fix, and if it looks bad THAT IS WHY GOD INVENTED HATS!!! :)

I think another way of encouragement would be to have others say what your best features are...or that could turn bad...I have been thinking about this all day and can't really come up with a 3....there's so many...I kid, I kid...Do you have ever have a few days that you just feel yuck and ugly? Well, I do and I'm there today...but if I wasn't there, I would say...
(1.) My smile (this one is cheesy but I'm looking at a picture and that seems ok)
(2.) My hair (it's thick and I like it...I catch one of those gray critters every now and then)
(3.) My eyes (they are brown like chocolate...and I love me some chocolate)
