Make Your Resolution a Revolution
It is already the middle of January and if you are anything like me that New Year's Resolution already came and left in these short few days. We started off strong and fizzled off somewhere in this deep freeze.
Most of focus on diet and exercise so intensely that it seems too impossible to even continue after 2 weeks. However, what if we would broaden our resolution to simply loving ourselves more? That sounds a hell of a lot less scary.
"Loving yourself is the greatest revolution."
Imagine if we can make our normally-failed-resolution a revolution! What a success that would be!
What makes you happy? What makes you feel good? What do you want?... like?... need?
Focus on you. Start small and work your way into full fledge loving you. Rome wasn't a built in a day. Neither will full blown self love.
If you just ain't feeling your hair... make time and go get it done. Buy a new lipstick shade. Go get a massage or facial. Make time to take care of your outer appearance no matter what shape or size you are.
If you want to lose a few pounds, go slow. If pop isn't making you feel so awesome, cut that out. Cut back on the carbs. Don't go running into this diet thing and cut out every single thing that's "bad" for you. It'll drive you nuts and really only make you want the stuff ten times more.
Take a vacation. Rest. Enjoy life. (Lying on a beach helps.) Do things that make you happy. Pick up a new hobby you have always wanted to try. Whatever it is you want to do. DO IT (with love).
When you start to focus on you and what you want and need out of your life everything else will follow. Loving yourself will make you feel great on the inside and it will only exude on the outside. You will have a little more pep in your step and more motivation to reach toward goals you have set for yourself whether it be losing that 10 pounds or finally asking for that raise.
Loving yourself is never going to be a "fad diet". Loving yourself is lifelong. You just have to start.
It is time for your revolution. And for crying out loud... for one resolution to finally stick.
Here at LIVE SALON we have made a promise to you to always empower you to be the best you can be.
So get out there! Love your damn self.
