For too long, limiting beliefs defined beauty. Society painted a picture for women based on physical appearance… and age. Terms such as “youthful”, “energetic” or “nubile” were used.
Flip open a magazine… watch a commercial… tune into your evening programming -whether it was subtle or obvious, beauty was defined for us. And, growing up we saw ourselves through the lens of these limiting beliefs. Well, not anymore...
Shakespeare said it best when he wrote…
“What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”
Beauty is timeless, not flawless.
It thrives from the journeys taken… experiences shared… and what’s coming about tomorrow.
With the Positive Aging revolution, we believe ALL women are beautiful, simply because we are women...
Where you see gray hair,
When those pesky limiting beliefs creep in, lean into the Positive Aging revolution and believe that ...
You are beautiful where you are today!
Here Are 5 Tips To Help You Change The Narrative On Aging:
1. Reframe your beauty.
Create your own reality by changing the narrative. When reframing beauty, consider positive alternatives that bring you joy and make you feel empowered.
Identify “beauty” characteristics you see in others and reflect those back to yourself.
Own your age and show off your badges. See yourself by using standards of beauty that you establish!
2. Challenge negative self-talk.
Sometimes it just happens… the negative voices creep in. When this happens, take notice but don’t dwell. Acknowledge what you believe are your imperfections.
Then challenge those imperfections using affirmations - I am funny! I am thoughtful! I am giving! I am beautiful! Defeat those Negative Nellies with positive energy. Give yourself the same pep talk you’d give your best friend!
3. Pamper yourself often.
Pampering yourself is doing something you enjoy. It can be as simple as taking a walk, participating in a hobby, or giving yourself an at-home spa day.
While helping others makes you feel good. It’s never more true than when you help yourself. Practicing self-care builds self-esteem and feelings of self-worth.
Be sure to block time each day for pampering. Engage in activities that make you feel good. When you feel good, you look good. There’s nothing more beautiful than a big cheesy smile!
4. Build relationships with positive-thinkers.
Build relationships with positive-thinkers. Be fearless. Open your mind and soul to the possibility of connecting with people who love themselves.
These positive-energy relationships fill your aura - causing you to see your beauty through their eyes. Once you settle into this mindset, surround yourself! For tough days when the negative self-talk creeps in, lean into your “Positive Thinker” tribe for support!
