30 Days Of Beauty: Week 2

“I pull you from your tower, take away your pain. Show you all the beauty you possess, if you only let yourself believe.”

~ Sarah McLachlan

Week 2 of 30 Days Of Beauty has been much easier than Week 1. Not only is it getting easier for me to list reasons why I’m beautiful, but now I look for beauty in myself in every situation, every experience, every thought I have.

My mind has been opened up to beauty, and now I see it everywhere.

It really is true; what you think about, you bring about. You get more of what you focus on. And the more I focus on the things that make me beautiful, the more beautiful I become.

I can’t believe I didn’t realise this until now, but each #imbeautifulbecause tweet is an affirmation. An affirmation of our own beauty, our own self-worth, and each affirmation opens us up to the magical, powerful, wonderful women that we really are.

I know there are women out there who have been following 30 Days Of Beauty, but haven’t been sharing their own beauty with the world. Maybe you’re one of these precious women, unsure of your beauty, unsure of your worth, unsure of yourself.

Maybe you’re worried that you won’t find any beauty in yourself, or that you will run out of reasons to feel beautiful before the 30 Days is up. I can tell you that your fears and worries are unfounded, just as mine were.

Give yourself a chance to see your own beauty.

Let your light shine.

My tweets for this week were:

April 9th: #imbeautifulbecause I am courageous. #LoveIsLouder than my fears.

April 10th: #Imbeautifulbecause I never stop believing in my dreams.

April 11th: #imbeautifulbecause I’m learning to let my light shine. I won’t hide in the shadows anymore.

April 12th: #imbeautifulbecause I count blessings, not burdens.

April 13th: #imbeautifulbecause I’m working hard to make my soul purpose my sole focus.

April 14th: I embrace my imperfections with love, and see them as a part of my own AWESOMENESS #imbeautifulbecause

April 15th: #imbeautifulbecause I am getting SO good at remembering that how others act is their choice, and how I act/react is completely up to me 🙂

My favourite #imbeautifulbecause tweets for this week were:

@amandakloeppel  #imbeautifulbecause I am learning that its not what I wear that defines me, but who I am on the inside.

@decodingdress #imbeautifulbecause I know I’m beautiful — I don’t need any external standard to tell me so.

@ClaireLaraine #imbeautifulbecause choices are mine and the answers lie within me.

@SparklinTraci #imbeautifulbecause I see the beauty around me and in me… ♡

@frangepanni #imbeautifulbecause – just because. No reason needed, no reason given. We are all beautiful because we are 😀

@MollyyyAnnn #imbeautifulbecause i can find the good in others, accept and not judge, and love imperfections

@ChelseaKouns #imbeautifulbecause I’m unique. I want to stand out, not fit in. And I won’t let anything change that. I’m petite and I rock it out. ;]

@sherryahovey #imbeautifulbecause God made me beautiful and my scars make me unique.

@kay_ruth #imbeautifulbecause I’m not perfect…and, have no desire to be…:)

@marisalehmann #imbeautifulbecause I have so many people cheering for me and encouraging me on, telling me that I will get through this. #yourebeautiful

  2. Jen, your gifts of beauty inspire me to reflect–both in inner awareness and outward to the greater beauty of the Universe–and to quietly contemplate the myriad ways of expressing and experiencing beauty in the tiny moments of each day. Like you, I am blessed to traverse these #imbeautifulbecause feelings so lovingly written.
