The Beauty Message Challenge is about seeing ourselves as beautiful exactly as we are by recognizing what makes us beautiful on the inside and out. Here is a question I have been pondering in regards to the process. If I make a poster with a picture of myself that says I am beautiful, which picture should I use – the one that I look really hot with lots of makeup and fake eyelashes or one of the many photos that I want to push the delete button after seeing because I think I look bad.
This process is about building self confidence which to me means being able to see myself as beautiful always. So do I use the photo I do not like and work to see myself as beautiful no matter what? I want to say yes but it is so much easier to believe in/ to see myself as beautiful in the “hot” photo. I would love to hear from others on what they are doing to see and believe in their beauty.
