ANNOUNCING THE WINNER OF SELF PORTRAIT CONTEST.......CONGRATULATIONS TO BOOKIE SCHWARTZ, AGE 15, FROM FRIENDS SEMINARY! TITLE: SILHOUETTE
In our SELF PORTRAIT GROUPS we learn how magazines use photoshop to manipulate people's photos to make them look "perfect and flawless", leaving the viewer or reader with a false sense of what beauty is and so called, media defined perfection! Our students walk away knowing that no magazine can fool them again! ... And who is to determine the definition of beauty when all they focus is on the aesthetics of a person??? True beauty comes from within!!
Contentment - Count the blessings around you and focus on the glass half full. Hopeful - Never ever give up! Keep positive and believe!!
Optimism - Think good thoughts and your life will shift to great things. This should be your daily exercise. Get away from feeling like the victim.
Positive Expectations and Beliefs - Yes, You DO DESERVE everything beautiful life has to offer!
Enthusiasm - The same energy you place in negativity (thought or behavior), start shifting that same enthusiasm to anything positive.
Passion - Find it. You have it. Focus on it, do something with it and of course, share it. What's your passion? You can achieve feelings of Joy/Knowledge/Empowerment/Freedom/Love and Appreciation!!!!
Today's message: Swim upstream and be empowered!
