Day 18: Celebrate your favorite feature. Take a picture and post it on a social media site. Embrace what makes you YOU.
The Blurb: What’s your favorite physical feature?
It’s probably a much harder question than what you dislike about you body, which is exactly what we’re trying to avoid talking about today. Why do we put such a heavy emphasis on the aspects we want to change? Why doesn’t anyone say instead, “I have the best arms,” or “Seriously, I should be a foot model.” Most of our conversations about our body image revolve around the things we want to change.
Today we are going to embrace something that you LOVE about yourself.
Suggestions: Do you have the straightest, whitest teeth? How about your ankles- do they have a perfect curve? Do you love your junk in the trunk? How about your smile? Your ears? Maybe you have amazing legs. How about your freckles? Think about what makes you feel proud!
Once you decide, take a picture showcasing this feature. You can even have a friend or significant other take a few fun shots. Then just post the pic on your favorite social media site to participate for the day.
Keeping It Real: I’m fan of the hilarious Tina Fey (In fact, I just did a sketch impersonating her when I was in charge of moderating THE AMAZING Delicious Reads Book Club I go to for our discussion of “Bossypants.” I’ll post the video of my monologue sometime soon!) Tina Fey has some amazing things to say about beauty in her book. Here’s a funny excerpt:
I hope you have fun with this focus today!
