So that’s exactly what I did this morning. I was excited about my website here atwww.AricaAngelo.com and I was feeling so pumped about it that I looked in the mirror and flexed my muscles. Yes! I kid you not, I literally looked in the mirror and flexed my muscles thinking.. “YOU GO GIRL!!!” I embraced the moment, the pride was there, the excitement and the self love, the full package was all there, so I embraced it!
It felt so good in that moment to just look in the mirror, flex my muscles and allow myself to feel very proud of myself in that moment. I kind of chuckled after and said to myself “Arica you’re a nut”, but boy do I think I’m a precious nut! Really I’m so over those moments arising and yet feeling the need to busy myself and move past them. Screw it, if the moment arises I’m taking it. Heck if someone else wants to celebrate me as well, well then I’m joining that party as well.
We can get so comfortable putting ourselves down, look at where we’re blowing it and where we fall short, forgetting and losing sight as to where we’re really kicking ass in life. I find myself downplaying myself at times, or showing where I’m screwing up and while I have my areas of screw ups, these should not be my focal points. The celebration, the party is where I’m thriving.
Grant it, when life is tough and the parties are far few and between, when that sudden urge pops up, you better grab it and grab it quick. So I did and I’m so glad that I took the time to do it. You know that’s attractive? Someone who is comfortable celebrating them-self is very sexy. One evening I was speaking to a married gentleman and while attempting to affirm him, I made the comment “Listen, coming from an attractive woman like myself…”, he was a bit shocked. He said “you know it’s so refreshing that you just called yourself an attractive woman.” I agreed and told him I wish more women would get comfortable in their skin and acknowledge their appeal.
It’s okay to celebrate yourself and I give you the permission to acknowledge to others that you’re attractive. Go ahead and give it a try and while you’re at it, Flex Your Muscles!!
