It’s hard to believe it’s already July! How is everyone doing on their summer goals? Do you even have any? There’s so much emphasis put on “summer bodies” when our goal should be to feel our best all year long, not just during 3 months out of the year.

Notice I didn’t say “look our best.” Too often ‘looks’ become so much more important than anything else. Of course making good impressions and feeling a certain pride in our appearance are worthy goals, that’s not what I’m saying. However, confidence and self-worth don’t come from having ‘magazine model’ looks. No one person is perfect, and no body is free of imperfections. Embracing the best of ourselves along with so-called “flaws” will go a long way in boosting self-confidence.

Let’s make the Friday Challenge this week to focus less on outward appearance and more on being comfortable in your own skin. What non-physical traits make you a special and unique individual? Is there something about yourself that you’ve always viewed as a ‘negative’ but could in fact be the reason why you’re so good at your work/schooling/relationships? I can’t wait to hear what thoughts everyone has on the topic next week!

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy being exactly who you are!
