You’ve heard it before and now it’s time to make it happen. Going through the one life you have to just end it with nothing but regret is a waste of a wonderful life. We’re started The Indie Chicks to inspire you to achieve the life you’ve always dreamed of. But there’s more to life than work, love, sex and friendships; there’s looking in the mirror and being proud of the person you are. Because without it, none of the other things would be possible. But let’s tackle one thing at a time: does hunting down the Perfect You have anything to do with your love life? Does ‘love yourself’ have anything to do with the rest of your life?
It has everything to do with it.
1. You don’t like your body
Every time you walk by the mirror, you hate what you see. You stop time to pinpoint the growing muffin top and the depth of each cellulite dimple. You see dry, flaky skin and dark circles under your eyes. You scream hatred as you try fitting into your old jeans. How are you supposed to feel good in bed with someone you’re trying to turn on if you can’t turn yourself on to begin with? The sex sucks. And if you don’t think it sucks, then you have no idea how good it can be.
The only way to do it is to get up and go. Throw out junk food and sign up at the gym – it’s an investment worthy of your hard work. When you say the gym is too expensive, consider the money you’ve wasted on fast food, movie tickets, and fat pants for bloated days. It’s never too late to start and you’ll feel progress within minutes (and see it in a few short weeks). Once you get on a roll, your lover (or one night stand) won’t know what hit him. Hello sex kitten.
2. You’re jealous of other girls
When you get down on yourself for everything you don’t have (or have too much of) your instinct is to compare yourself to other women. Ask yourself this: does being envious and negative get you any closer to being like them? Being jealous and lame towards other girls is one of the most unattractive qualities a woman can have. The more you accuse a guy of being into another girl, the more he’ll think he is.
Instead of bitching about another girl, study her (like in 12 Things to Do in 2012) Creepy? A little. Effective? Abso-fuckin-lutely. Study what it is about her that you wish you had. And unless you’re envious of her race (or something completely unchangeable) know that the goal is within reach. Analyze it and do it.. and strive to be better.
Ugh, she’s so happy all the time. She’s so nice, it’s disgustingly addictive. Why is everyone obsessed with being around her jolly ass?
Because, happiness is contagious. People will choose to be around it 364 days a year, and opt for Ms. Pessimistic the one (or few) times they’re having a shitty day.
Ugh she’s so skinny and her make up is always super done. I’m totally jelly of her tight butt. Guys can’t take their eyes off of her!
You’re probably saying this as you stuff your face with ice cream and pizza. Get your fat ass up and get moving. Open up a credit card and splurge on some make up- get a pro to teach you the basics at any local mall.
