When you look in the mirror, what's your natural reaction?
Are you positive about yourself or are you a little more like this...
Unfortunately, many of us are a bit of a mean girl to ourselves.
And although we know it's not a good thing, every single morning when we get up and look at ourselves in the mirror we list out all of the things we don't like about ourselves - sometimes without even realising we are doing it.
The problem with this is that once we've done this, we've started off our day with self hate and this then sets the tone for how we feel for the rest of the day.
Even worse, over time this can become a habit that feels almost impossible to break.
If you've been following us for a while, then chances are you know that we are all about self love so it won't come as a surprise to you that we are pretty keen to help our Warriors reprogram the habit of negative self talk when looking in the mirror.
So, we came up with a challenge and today, I want to invite YOU to give it a go as well. It starts off with a question - If your mirror could talk back to you when you look into it, what might it say?
We'd be willing to bet that it would have a whole heap of positive things to tell you.
Why, you ask?
Have you ever noticed that the way you think about other people is NEVER as negative as the way you think about yourself? We're willing to bet that you'd never say half of the things that you say to yourself about someone else.
Often it is hardest to see our own beauty but easy to see others'.
So, chances are, there are people around you that think you're completely gorgeous, capable, and inspiring - you just haven't seen it in yourself yet.
That's where your mirror comes in.
We want you to imagine your mirror is your BIGGEST fan and then imagine what it would say to you when you look in it in the morning.
Would it tell you that you're looking incredible today?
Would it compliment your eyes?
Would it tell you how AWESOME you are?
Would it inspire you to go out and change the world?
Once you've thought of something that your mirror might say (you could look up some inspo quotes or sayings if it helps), we challenge you to write those words on your mirror and snap a selfie.
Post this to your socials with the hashtag #IfMirrorsCouldTalk and be sure to tag us as well @countrygirlmanagement. Then, nominate someone else to do the challenge who needs to love what they see in the mirror too.
