Are You Improving Your Image?

Have you recently been considering your personality and how you present yourself to others? Perhaps you have been unhappy with remarks about you that you have overheard at work or in the presence of friends and acquaintances? Or, it might just be that family members you trust have been frank with you, explaining that, while they love you, they don't necessarily like you very much. Have you given any thought to the fact that perhaps you have just gotten used to being a rather negative person, even not caring too much about your personal appearance? If you have decided to make some big changes to improve your image, from making a frank self-evaluation to even getting a breast lift, here are some ideas that might help you to make some big changes in your life that will more than likely improve your image, hopefully making you a happier individual.

A Frank Self-Evaluation - Think of the reasons that you don't present yourself well. Do you carry a heavy burden from sad or even bad past experiences? Perhaps you were bullied while a young girl at school and that left what you thought of as a permanent scar. Maybe you were even mistreated by a parent or by your husband. Whatever happened in the past, consider seeing a professional counselor to help you to get past that difficult time. More than likely your ecclesiastic leader will be able to counsel you or at least give you the name of a counselor. Look in the mirror. Do you like what you see? Besides a frowny-face, do you also see frumpy clothes that exhibit an I-don't-care attitude? Do you see a slouchy posture, a pot belly and maybe even saggy breasts?

Make The Big Change - Of course, seeing a counselor or to another trusted individual to get past disappointments and hurts is very important. However, there are other things you can do to improve your image. Confide with a friend and ask her to go shopping with you for new clothes and maybe even a hair and makeup makeover. Have you thought of having a tummy tuck or a breast lift for those saggy or too-large breasts? You've probably heard of breast augmentation, but you may not realize that breast surgery doesn't have to be that intense. A surgeon can do a simple procedure which will be done either in a hospital or as an outpatient. The surgeon will explain exactly what the process will be, how much pain you'll have and what your recovery time will be. Also, plan to meet with the doctor who will do your anesthesia.

Consider keeping a journal as you make changes in your life. Give yourself time to achieve the image you want.
