We made it to Wednesday, Babes!
Does anyone else feel a sense of accomplishment once they reach Wednesday? It makes me feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders! *waves goodbye to Monday + Tuesday* Today, I am starting a new segment I’m calling #WorthyWednesday. The comparison game is the real deal in today’s society. We ask ourselves, why don’t I look like her? Drive a nice car like her? Have fancy clothes? When did we start glamorizing “perfection” over realness?
Positive thinking and self-empowerment are two areas of my life that I am working on growing Today, I wanted to talk about feeling great in your own skin! For me personally, I enjoy working out and getting a good sweat in. It makes me feel like I’m shedding the day’s stresses and keeps me feeling healthy. As crazy as it sounds, I also credit working out for saving my acne prone skin! Sweating out all those toxins! I also enjoy eating a balanced diet. I’m all about my healthy meals that way I can enjoy my indulgent ones. They aren’t lying when they say it’s all about the balance.
There are also several things I do to keep up my appearance that make ME feel great. People will ask why I spend my money on hair, lash extensions, and manicures, but since when do we owe anyone an explanation for what makes us happy? I’m a firm believer in doing you, boo boo! Want to wear your hair in a bun every day? Go for it! Want to wear hair extensions and curl it every day? That’s fine! We should ALL do whatever it is that brings us joy and makes us feel good, regardless of what anyone else thinks! This is me giving you affirmation that YOU can do whatever makes you feel good, while waving bye to the haters! I encourage you to make yourself happy first. And I seriously mean that. How can you expect to make others in your life happy if you aren’t happy with yourself? You won’t always do what everyone agrees with, but that’s what makes you, YOU and unique! Own what you got and what you want! When you exude confidence, others will see it!
I also wanted to touch on cosmetic procedures. Do you get facials or cosmetic treatments that just make you feel like a queen? Let me know! I have met so many women who are becoming more willing to discuss their aesthetic appreciation with no shame because we truly have NOTHING to be ashamed of. Why is it anyone’s place to judge if you want a little botox or juvaderm? If this is something that makes someone else feel beautiful, why do we tear them down or judge? I’m a huge advocate for cosmetic procedures. Sure they aren’t medically necessary, but anything that makes you feel beautiful is perfectly fine in my book! I am always an open door when it comes to cosmetic procedures! I would love to answer any questions you may have or just provide you with information in my little safe space here on the internet!
This week, I’m heading out to Aqua MedSpa in Webster, Texas for some pampering of my own, and I am taking y’all along with me! Interested to know what kind of pampering? Be sure to follow me on Instagram to find out and catch up on all the fun!
