I just read this article in the Wall Street Journal (The High Price of Beauty – WSJ) and it is quite amazing what we will spend to look good! And then there is all the maintenance of facial work that comes into play, not to mention plastic surgery.
Do you really believe you have to do this? Do you really want to fit in so badly? What happened to individuality and seeing beauty everywhere?
I assert that once we get an attitude adjustment, we can let go of all the “have to’s” in our daily regimens. It is acceptance and being present to the moment that lets you see everything is perfect. It is the pressure and the pace of keeping up that is moving you to take these radical actions to fit in. When you can fit in this very moment and you are totally perfect.
So instead of crossing off a fast pace lifestyle to do list, how about stop and ask yourself what do I notice right now? It’s where you put your attention that gets the attention. You notice flaws, then you fix flaws; you notice beauty and you get beauty. Yes it’s that simple.
