Beauty from the Inside Out

This past Memorial Day weekend, I enjoyed a day lounging by the pool with my husband and friends.  It was unbelievably relaxing, but pesky thoughts kept popping into my head…

…do my thighs look big? are my arms toned enough? does my tummy look pudgy?

These negative thoughts had the ability to really make me feel insecure and take away my joy in spending time outside in my bathing suit with my friends.

Luckily, I have been focusing a lot of time and energy on this exact topic–body image for women–and I had a few reframing exercises I could silently do to allow myself to stop thinking about what my body looked like and instead be present with the people I love.

So, I want to ask you–do you ever catch yourself zoning out of the present moment and thinking these kind of negative thoughts?

Sadly, if we are honest with ourselves we’ve all done this whether we voice it to a friend or just in our own head.  And I want to change that because we as women deserve to live our lives without comparing ourselves to models or celebrities, without hating on our bodies, and without feeling insecure about the way we look.  We are each beautiful in different ways, and now is the time to embrace that.

Body image is not something I have not talked about before.  And despite being a sensitive, taboo subject, I really believe this topic is vital to discuss openly and extensively.  To help you begin to reframe the way you think about your body, I have created a 3-part video series dedicated to this topic.  So, if you are tired of not loving every ounce of your body, then I invite you to watch this video and see for yourself what can be done to bring more confidence to you and the women you love…

Thank you as always for watching!  I hope this video is as meaningful to you as it was to me to create it.  Stay tuned for another video in this series next week!

Yours in Style,

    Hey Megan,
    This is so perfect. I have struggled with my self-image my whole life and unfortunately, I feel I have passed this on to my youngest daughter. Neither of us will accept a compliment. I look forward to practicing this tip with her all week.
    Thank you.
