How to love yourself if you don’t

  The same principle as for becoming more confident applies: Fake it until you make it.
What would someone who loves themselves do?

What would someone who loves themselves do?

Make this question you mantra: "What would someone who loves themselves do?" Any decision you are facing, big or small, ask this question and do what first comes to your mind. For example when you decide what to wear to school or work, ask "what would someone who loves themselves wear?" Listen to the answer that pops up in your head and then do it. That way you tell your subconscious mind that you love yourself. Because you act exactly like somebody who already does, according to your question and suggestion. The more often you do it, the faster it will eventuate. I interpreted this amazing practice developed by Teal Swan - tealswan.com

Black is not the answer

Black clothes can look elegant and sophisticated. But try not to use them as an every day security blanket.  
black makes you invisible

Black is not the answer to everything. (In fact, that's 42). Yes, it can make you look a tiny bit thinner. What it definitely does though, is making you look invisible. We've had enough of it. No more hiding.   Start mellow, try something violet. Dark, dark red. Brown. Forest green. It will not add volume (it's nearly black, right?) but it will make you feel good and it will make other people aware of you.

Seriously. Wearing colour can be your bungee jump. Do it and I guarantee you an adrenaline rush of excitement. Look at the people around you and see how they react to you differently. It will make you more approachable. Interesting. It can change your mood, your state of mind, your perspective. If you can't help it but wear black, at least wear something sexy, figure hugging. No more hiding. Turn it around, turn heads.   pics created via polyvore.com
