Overcoming Image Issues

Image issues often start with a simple opinion. Sometimes a child’s taunting “your ugly” still rings in a woman’s ears 40 years later. I have counseled girls with obsessions over things about their body that they felt were huge issues. In reality their image issues were minor flaws that were like a juggler vein that … Continue reading Overcoming Image Issues

Perfect Pics and Body Image

Right after taking a class on Photoshop at a Geek Girl Tech Conference this weekend I was challenged with some questions about today’s media: Are they to blame for the fact that so many girls have image issues today? I don’t think so. I agree that technology’s ability to correct figure flaws and imperfections can cause … Continue reading Perfect Pics and Body Image

Image Assessment: Physical Attributes

Women’s Issues

I have heard many sermons about the woman with the issue of blood. Usually the preacher awkwardly explains her 12-year ailment the best he can, and effectively gives an encouraging Word for anyone listening–male or female; but it seems to me that this is a topic for us girls to really dive into.   Proverbs 14:10  … Continue reading Women’s Issues

Encouragement in an Identity Crisis

This could be a story about you. Perhaps your losing your hair, have a major skin problem, are cross-eyed or confined to a wheelchair. This could be a story about a friend or family member, who’s Image Issue is not outwardly apparent to most, but is weighing on your heart because you know about her eating disorder, … Continue reading Encouragement in an Identity Crisis

Aging with Confidence

This Forth of July I hit the big 5-0. People keep telling me that It’s just another number, but it’s a bit of a Confidence Conflict right now and hearing, “it’s no big deal” doesn’t really help.  True that a birthday really only makes us  one day older, but reaching a new decade is difficult. Aging and body-image As … Continue reading Aging with Confidence

When Looking Good is the Last Concern

If you ever want to find out if you have Image Issues, go skiing in extremely cold conditions and see if you care how you look. Last weekend’s fierce winds brought the wind-chill factor down to a negative twenty-five degrees, but that didn’t take into account the wet snow on my exposed cheeks. It was … Continue reading When Looking Good is the Last Concern

Your Strength is the Battlefield for your Confidence

By definition, anything dramatic is theatrical, obvious, exciting, exaggerated, striking. The Dramatic Image Identity has a penchant and passion for the arts, fashion and beauty. Because of this woman’s strength is her eye for detail and gift in creativity, she also does  well in areas of architecture and design. Dramatics are tall women with long, straight features and bold coloring … Continue reading Your Strength is the Battlefield for your Confidence

Deadheading your Closet

By definition, anything natural is normal or ordinary and not made by humans. This defines the Casual Beauty very well, as this girl is most attractive when she keeps her image simple. Many of these girls consider themselves ordinary and boring, but others enjoy their unpretentious, uncomplicated understated authenticity. Naturals appreciate beauty, but seldom get … Continue reading Deadheading your Closet

How Confidence and Beauty Intertwine

When a woman believes she looks beautiful, she feels confident. When a woman is confident, she radiates beauty. It really doesn’t matter which style she is nor how tall, slim or old she is. The color of her eyes, hair or skin do not change the fact, nor does her nationality, upbringing or experiences in … Continue reading How Confidence and Beauty Intertwine
