What Is Beauty?

The following questions are found at the following website:

http://jarofspiders.com/veranadine/2007/06/11/cultivating-beauty-part-one/
written by Vera Nadine. I hope you check out her article. It is a fasinating way to look at beauty. Thank you, Vera, for writing it.

Vera's questions and statements are in italics. My answers are not.
"Who are you? What do you see as your positive qualities? How do those equate to your physical body? I want you to complete these sentences:

I am a great writer.

I help others by listening.

I am very talented at connecting with people.

I have always been a good friend.

I am a total success at being me.

Now fill these in with a body part:

My mouth helps me to help others.

These hands are a tool for my success.

My greatness is strengthened by the use of my brain.

I have fantastic legs.

I see my talents reflected in my eyes.

I am grateful that I have a healthy heart.

So, why affirm yourself?
Because a person who is aware of their own talents in an active way is a person who is more confident in those talents. Confidence is beautiful."

Except for the answers to the above questions, all of those words came from Vera Nadine. Isn't she a beautiful person? I have never met Vera except through her words on her website. I challenge you to go to her website which is shown above and read the rest of this wonderful article and then answer the above questions for yourself.

I intend to make a copy of these questions and answers and affirm them to myself each day for the next 30 days to make them a part of my being. Because of these, I will walk in the confidence of who I am, connected to my mind, body and spirit.

I hope you will do the same.

It's a great thing to do, positive affirmations. It will be interesting to see how it changes (if it does) over the 30 days.

This is a great post Patricia, such a beautiful idea.

Leigh, Thank you for visiting. I enjoy reading all of the articles. Mine wasn't exactly on topic. The idea came from Vera Nadine. Be sure to check out her original article.

Jaycee, I have worked with affirmations for years and they do work. My self-esteem went from zero to healthy because of the use of affirmations. I have an article coming up soon on how I used affirmations in the beginning.
