Mirror, Mirror, in the Trash
“Thoughts on Valuing Your Inner Beauty”
The book is a collection of questions and answers from over 100 women, ranging from 11 to 83 years of age. The thoughts about self-esteem, body image, spirituality, sexuality and relationships are powerful and insightful.
The book is designed to be used in a book group, workshop, and retreat or as a guided journal for self-reflection. This will be a great gift for the women and teen girls in your life!
THOUGHTS FROM THE COACH
After years of leading workshops and classes on some of the issues that teen girls and women face, it is clear to me that we are all unique and beautiful in our own way. The hard part is for us to believe in our worth. Perhaps you were raised by parents that did not freely give affection and praise. Maybe you had too many unhealthy relationships to count, and this has done a number on your self-esteem. For some it might be the struggle of aging gracefully or not feeling as positive and energetic any more.
Whatever the reason, we all need encouragement and reminders. The purpose of the website, the classes and the book is to remind you of your incredible potential. We are barraged daily by images of women that are unattainable without plastic surgery and a lot of touching up. We are told more and more often that we “can have it all”, and then feel guilty when we “cannot manage it all”.
My Soul Works is a place for women to share their stories, work on life’s every day challenges and learn to love yourself. If you want to know more, send me an email or give me a call. I welcome the opportunity to be your coach, your teacher or your support along this journey!
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Pay Attention! It is not only in our cars that we are distracted by a phone call or a text coming in. Often we are walking with our phone out in front of us or sitting in a coffee shop glued to a screen. Take a day to put the phone away except when absolutely necessary. Look around you, notice the change of seasons, the beauty in nature. Hold the door open for the person behind you, give up your place in line when you have a full cart and the person behind you has two items, and smile at someone who looks like they could use it. We are all in this together and most of us would not think twice to do any of these things, if, and that should be a big IF, we notice!
