Do You Embrace Yourself?

thumbs up hug

Loving one’s body, and mind — employing self-love is embracing one’s self. 

With that said; as modern people, we are often bombarded from every side by the media. It hits us with messages that say we are not enough — not tall enough, or thin enough, not light enough, or tan or bronzed or black enough. The message sometimes is we’re not young, hip, or smart enough either.

Then if that’s not the case,  we may wind up receiving the same  message, but in reverse. We are too much. We are much too loud, too big –we’re obese, or we’re too old or too boisterous. It can even be suggested that we are much too under — or over — qualified. Wow! All of these mixed messages can weigh heavily on a person’s mind, whether or not they know it.

To tell you the truth, all of these mixed messages are the anti-thesis of embracing ourselves. Click here to find out why

Don’t wanna look Old? If you fall into this category, if you happen to be someone who doesn’t want to look old before you get –say ninety-nine, then have I got something for you to check out. Written by Charla Krupp, the book  How Not To Look Old is chock full of fast and effortless ways to look 10 years younger, 10 pounds lighter, and 10 times better — exactly what it says on the cover. Roughly about 254 pages, this guide begins with how to age gracefully. Not.

Actually, the author speaks candidly about how aging can stick in one’s throat, like my  grandma’s dry turkey. It can be hard to swallow. The author speaks of how women can discover things that seemingly pop up overnight — like age spots, crow’s feet, chin hair, sagging bazooms, and bunions! Witch But don’t be alarmed. I’m speaking to those of us who don’t wanna look old before our time. The book’s author says we can do something about those things and others. She also states we can look great doing so.
So there I was, reading about the author’s proposed plan of attack on aging, and becoming more interested by the minute. Click here to see why…
