My New Best Friends

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I decided that since yesterday I decided to get rid of my old frenemies, Excuses, I needed to replace them with some new friends. (And by the way I had to kick one of the excuses butt’s today when it came around in the grocery store and said it would be ok to get a bag of mini snickers because I worked out all week.) SO I decided to embrace some new pals called Mirrors.

For a long time mirrors and I have not gotten along at all. I think if my bathroom mirror had a mind it would say, “What the heck is wrong with this chick???” Every morning when I get up and go into the restroom, my first thought when I look in the mirror is “ugggghhhh...”. And then I spend a few minutes beating myself up while I get ready.

I think a simple thing that will make a big difference is to change my morning mantra every morning when I look in the mirror or just when I see a mirror in general. From now on I am going to smile at mirrors and I am going to say, “Damn, I’m sexy!” Maybe if I am in public I won’t say it out loud because that could be weird, but I will say it in my head.

Ok, laugh if you want to, but I just tried it and it actually felt kinda good. Maybe I giggled afterwards adn don't fully believe it right this minute, but doing it daily maybe it will start to feel natural. It's way better than “No guy is gonna be attracted to THIS.” and “You are SUCH a failure.” I love mirrors from now on. My new friends. They will always tell me how great I look and what a good job I am doing!
