There is no better topic for me to revive my blog on than to share my latest experience as a participant in the Best Kept Self’s #BestKeptSelfie #StoptheMadness campaign.
Created to help combat negative self-talk, Best Kept Self’s Shauna Mackenzie says, “Our biggest goals with the campaign is to get women to understand the severity of speaking negatively about themselves. We at Best Kept Self believe that the secret to doing it all and having a life you love, is believing in your self-worth. Bottom Line: Love yourself enough to live a life of joy.”
Check out this moving video from the Best Kept Self’s Stop the Madness campaign:
I was honored to be a part of the campaign and loved the exercise of thinking about what I really loved about myself, and what made me, me. I felt so gorgeous and confident by the time I took the photo! I recommend giving yourself a break and a moment to think about all of the positive qualities you have. In this day and age it’s easy to feel inferior scrolling through Instagram photos of your favorite celebrity in the Caribbean, or simply logging on to your favorite website and seeing that weight loss ad. We are being bombarded with more fake “needs” than we’ve ever been, and the only thing you really need to “fix” those things is to love yourself, and that’s truly priceless.
