Have You Ever Temporarily Lost Your Confidence? #Makeovers

Which side looks more confident? Even subtle changes can make a world of difference in your outlook!

Which side looks more confident? Even subtle changes can make a world of difference in your outlook!

You know the tell-tale signs of a dip in self-confidence: slow or poor decision making, feeling of dread and the instinct to retreat from any type of challenge. We ALL experience these feelings every now and then. Sometimes it happens for no apparent reason, but often, it is the result of some exterior event such as loss of a job or divorce/break up. These are real problems that need to be worked through internally. However…you can speed the process and give it a boost from the outside… that’s right, I’m talking “MAKEOVER”~!

I know a lot of people think that makeovers, makeup, fashion, etc. are shallow, but have they considered how important it is to “act as if”? This is probably not a new phrase to you, but it is no less magical upon rediscovery! The best advice I can give someone who is sad for no apparent reason is to “act as if” they are happy. This is not the same as “put on a happy face”, which has the connotation of faking for the benefit of others. “Acting as if” is for your own personal benefit to retrain your brain, to form the new neuropathways you need to function in a more balanced way. Your brain needs repetition to learn new ideas and change the chemicals that rule your emotions.

While much of this is indeed done in thought, it can be sparked by changes on the exterior and certainly reinforces the idea that you are happy. To those naysayers who feel that caring about your skin, appearance, looks is a shallow or vain practice, I would say, “Get a haircut!” After your new ‘do, you will notice SOMETHING. It might be a little bounce in your step or just the fact that you look into the mirror more to check it out. Looking into the mirror is an excellent time to do some reinforcing thinking and self-talk that will keep you well on your road to happiness. I am in no way suggesting you should stare at yourself all day in the mirror or that all women must wear makeup or that all men should not – these are all personal choices and should be respected as such. I am merely suggesting that taking pride in your appearance is not a shallow action. It has real and lasting benefits to boost your self-esteem and should be respected as such. You know your brain is playing a tape constantly forming neuropathways, why not help determine where they go!

Deepak Chopra’s One Minute Shift

Now ask me how it feels to be one of 4,192 people @Deepak_Chopra follows on Twitter! FANTASTIC!

It all started with @Ciaobella50 & @Mountainkat. Bella was asking a question seemingly to God, joked MK, a question posed to Deepak Chopra on Twitter. She had barely formed a sentence when he answered her! She was shocked and amazed when she told me and I’m sure she’s blogging about it. I had to write this before reading her blog so I do not have a skewed view. She went on to tell me that he had DMd her! I was star struck! Not only by my beautiful friend, but by her attention from such a man! What an incredible turn of events!

Bella’s Twitter entries were simply hilarious, as usual, poking fun at herself, how she was “just sitting there having a conversation with Deepak Chopra”. He had advised her to be silent for 2 weeks. “2 weeks!” Bella marveled, “I can’t do that!” I suspect she could, but would miss her terribly! I am not sure whether Deepak meant for her to be silent in real life (irl) or online as in Twitter? Bella, not wanting to know, I suspect, did not ask for clarification. She continues to glow brighter than most! The truth is that all of my friends shine brighter than most whether they are on this list or not. Should they seek out Deepak, it would give him the opportunity to discover them. Perhaps some have followed my example and are following the fake Deepak Chopra. I will link only to the real Deepak because of this now.

A few of my friends @Deepak_Chopra follows on Twitter:

One Minute Shift is not to be missed! Please watch & RT!

Special thanks to @CiaoBella50 since I was following the fake Deepak Chopra previously! I am eternally grateful to my lovely friend!
