Topic: The Eyes Are The ________
Monday March 07, 2010
I am continuing with the fill in the blank topics and relaying them to health. This is another one, most of us have heard or read somewhere. The usual ending is “windows to the soul.” I agree with it, but I would also say this, “beauty you behold for yourself and share with others.” What I mean is, when you look at yourself in the mirror, you see your eyes and that connects you with your own self-love and self-worth. There are those who don’t have any feelings for themselves (i.e. know who they are inside and simply LOVE THE SELF!) that are strong enough to know for sure that they are good, valuable and worthwhile. Once you have this, it radiates out to the world and they can feel it coming from you, even without you saying anything. It shows on your face, in your body language (how you carry yourself). You are proud and you walk around with your head held high (but not with your nose up in a snooty/obnoxious way), good posture and sweet gestures. This is not always inborn/inbred, because some of us grow up feeling worthless, helpless, etc. because we are told that ‘you will not amount to anything in life’ or ‘are not good enough.’ Like a baby first learning to walk, sometimes we have to learn/re-learn who we are and the value that we have. Whether you are a woman or a man, treat yourself right! Be good to yourself! It is not about being selfish, it is about valuing yourself and taking the time to do what you enjoy and be around people who feel the same way. Find a support group/person who you can talk to and share the love with (as well as, yourself, and I am not talking about an intimate relationship, rather a close and loving friendship where you can share your time together and value each other). Something else you can do, is to create positive affirmations that you repeat daily to give yourself value, goodness and worth. Say these while looking in the mirror for a stronger connection. Also, you can write them down and post them somewhere that you will notice (such as the bathroom mirror and perhaps laminate it because it would get wet from showering). I am worthwhile! I am valuable! I am good! At the end of saying things like these I mentioned, say “And so it is!” To make it be the truth.
