Do you know who you really are?
If I had to guess, I’d say you were a bit of a shambles these days.
Out of whack, off kilter, and totally lost.
Your low self -esteem chases off every possible date within a thousand miles.
Your anxiety makes getting out of bed a life threatening impossibility sometimes.
You pick at your face, agonize over your fat rolls, and constantly sabotage your diet with doughnuts.
You spend your time bingeing on Netflix, avoiding your credit card bills, and wondering what the heck is wrong with me? while scrolling Instagram (which makes you feel totally rotten about your sorry, unglamorous life).
Truth is, before we can discover what’s wrong, we must must must find out who we are first.
Creating your Beauty Mindset
Often, the real trouble is that we’ve completely lost touch with who we are — let alone what’s wrong and what we need.
I’ve got some serious questions for you.
So you can clear the cobwebs. Shake off the dust. Do some mental house cleaning.
This is going to be so juicy.
In order to get to the heart of the situation (the heart of us), we have to take the time.
I’m gonna repeat:
We have to take the time.
This is the business of rejuvenation. Cultivating power. Energy. Strength through total self awareness.
You get me? What I’m sayin’, honey, is that this is not for wimpy biscuits.
This is for my babies who know they have purpose. Who see the picture is way bigger than they are.
Who are scared to death, but know they have an obligation to bring their light into this life without fear and hesitation.
There are no right or wrong answers. No need for judgement. The goal is to know yourself – when you know yourself, you can know anything. Do anything. Be anything.
Stand by me, now.
How to Find Who You Really Are by Creating a Beautiful Mindset
This is what you are going to do:
*Take the time. Block it out, pencil it in.
*Phone off. TV off. Distractions off.
*Brew up some herbal tea. Something delicious and delightful.
*Get into a safe and loving space that is warm and full of good vibes. Your bed, a rocking chair, a tree house.
*Light a candle. Set an intention: To let go. To move forward. To love and accept your past. To embrace the process of life. To change. Whatever feels right for you.
* Repeat some affirmations. This process might be painful or scary. It may dig up old demons or harsh truths. Prepare yourself. Be kind to yourself. I love and accept myself in this moment. I am worthy. My truth is my power. I am overcoming my limitations right now.
*Read the questions through. Think on them. Let them settle in. Feel them. Then answer. Openly. Honestly. With brute force and fearless love. Have no mercy on the page.
*What you do with your answers is totally up to you. Listen to your intuition. You will know what path is right. Store them away. Put them in a time capsule. Burn them. Tear them up. Bury them. Keep them in a journal and reread them often. Share them.
If you’re ready.
Find Yourself in These Questions
5. What are your 5 favorite ways to spend your time? How do you feel when you do these things? What stops you from doing them more frequently? What feelings come up for you? Do you feel a sense of guilt, worry, or shame when you “indulge” in these pastimes?
7. What do you spend most of your time doing? Are you efficient with your time? Do you waste time? Do you procrastinate? What is your relationship to time (not enough, goes too fast, always bored, etc)?
10. Consider your number one worry. Write a letter to yourself, as if you were your own friend. Speak to yourself exactly the way you would a bestie who was struggling with your exact issue(s). What would you say? What sort of comforting message would you have? What kind of encouragement could you offer?
Well done, honey. You’re looking at your heart, you know.
What do you see?
What is it telling you?
Be blessed, my love. Your journey has begun.
Tell me. Are you frying burgers instead of doing make-up on film sets, like you’ve always dreamed of? Did you have a life changing, brain seizing, perception shattering epiphany in the middle of a presentation at work (that subsequently went off-the-wall wrong?) I want to know.
