Gaining a Whole New Perspective on You and Your Body
Have you ever stood in your room with a pile of clothes at your feet because NOTHING was right?!
New Year’s Eve 2014 I wanted to look good (aka I wanted to feel good going to a party).
When you don’t look good, you don’t feel good. Sound familiar?
I knew other women would be dressed up, I wanted to too. But, I didn’t have anything that fit right, looked dressy enough, or didn’t make me feel like a sack of potatoes.
The more I tried on, the more desperate & anxious I got.
Looking in the mirror, I noticed every wrinkle, roll, flappy arm, soft spot, freckle, mole, gray hair, & dimple (not the cute kind!).
As each attempt at an outfit emphasized parts of my body that I wanted to hide or was just a damn dud, I was near tears & snappy with my husband when he pointed out how late it was getting.
All I could see in the mirror was a body I hated & that spiraled into a tirade of how I’m lazy & inadequate or how I'd let myself go! 🙄
I was desperately trying to find some confidence in the right outfit & in my reflection because I didn’t have it any other way.
How do you think my NYE went???
I’m betting you know some version of this ^^.
Thankfully things are very different for me today.
When I look in the mirror now, I smile. It surprises me too. But, I’ve developed a love for this woman who fought so hard to like herself.
I don’t worry about being judged for how I look. I honestly don’t think anyone cared back then except me & if they did, eff them. 😁
Do I still like to look good?? Hell yes! But, it's FOR me & that’s not where my confidence comes from. A good fit & the right colors on me enhance what I’ve developed on the inside.
I want that for you too. I’ve teamed up with stylist Sarah Liller to help you change how you feel when you look at your reflection.
Join us at our one day virtual retreat where we’ll teach you to:
Quiet that nagging inner voice-it’s been running unchecked for long enough.
Develop an understanding of your body type & what clothes flatter you.
Why the piece you love works for you so you can replicate it.
What styles to avoid.
A new perspective on you & your body - even if you think that’s not possible for you!
Drop the Dread: Embrace Your Reflection in the Mirror
Saturday July 16 10:00AM-3:00PM (PST)
What would change if criticism wasn’t the first response when you look in the mirror? If you could give yourself a break when you start being hard on yourself instead of doubling down and being even more cruel?
Imagine how different things could be if you recognized that the fit of the clothes is the problem, not your body. AND you had tools to work with and dress your body type?!
You can get all of this & more in Drop the Dread. Grab your spot here.
The only thing you’ve got to lose is being shitty to yourself! I really hope you’ll join us.
