I have a pair of magic jeans. These jeans fit me just right whether I’m up or down a few pounds on the scale. Think “Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants” jeans (pardon if that is not a cool reference). I wear these jeans whenever I need to feel good about myself because I’m feeling bad about myself…know what I mean? It’s that feeling when you wake up in the morning and nothing feels right, or good, or great. That means it’s magic jeans time. They give me that little boost I need to feel even an eenie bit better about myself.
So, here’s what I want you to do. Go dig through your closet and find that one thing that anytime you put it on, it makes you feel that eenie bit better. Maybe you have a pair of jeans too; or a t-shirt that brings out your eye colour; or a black hoodie; or Lululemon pants; or a dress; or a pair of earrings; or a ring; whatever it is take it out and hold it up in front of you. Take a good look at and then tell it: “You are my magic ___________, your job is to make me feel a little bit better about myself when I put you on.”
Okay…did you do it? Good.
Now, I want you to put it on. Do you feel a little bit better? Remember, sometimes it’s only that eenie bit. Did you at least smile because this is a bit silly? That’s good too!
Okay, now I want you remember that you didn’t change one bit because of what you put on. You were already great. You were already beautiful. You were already special. A piece of clothing or an accessory can maybe enhance you but you are awesome…just as you are.
