We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. – Maya Angelo –
I’ve learned that men and women alike appear more concerned than ever with attractiveness and perceived physical imperfections. They are concerned because they feel and believe that gorgeous people get preferential treatment. Have you ever felt that way? Well, let me tell you, that’s a “not so pretty” fact of life. We’ve all seen it played out before; in school, at work, church, grocery store, etc. And, the whole world plays a part in it. It’s really attributed to something called the “halo” effect, where people choose one characteristic about a person, (positive or negative), blow it up and create bias toward that direction.
But, what you should know is that one characteristic does not define your character or your beauty. Just remember that beauty, intelligence and other positive characteristics, go hand in hand. Yes, they all play a part in making up who you are. Don’t let you appearance become an obsession. Your beauty encompasses your inner and outer parts. Just know that once you start obsessing with beauty, there’s no stopping. Next, it’ll be your body features, body image, then dieting, and it will never stop. So balance your life by shining the light on all of your characteristics.
Use your dominate character strengths and improve on your weaker ones. They’re all a part of you and should balance you. Don’t run from what needs work… do the work.
I want you to know that Avon is a long-standing brand with a deep beauty legacy. The woman-to-woman, (and some men) approach to selling is vital to it’s products, because women (and some men) get to talk to other women (and some men) who understand the needs and insecurities that you go through. And, can find and suggest just the right products for you.
From campaign to campaign and brochure to brochure, you’ll certainly find women who look like you and share the same issues as you… well, of course you can, because Avon is so relatable… right!
So get in there and get started on the deals this campaign. Shop my AVON eStore! It’s easy and online. Your order goes directly to your own address. Fragrance, body scrub, it’s all there for you. If you need me to order a sample of something, I will… just for you.
