The Glow Up; Realizing The Best Version of You

The glow up is a positive personal transformation, and you’re not limited to just one – you can have as many as you can stand in a lifetime. A glow up usually involves significant changes in your appearance, the way you present yourself and your sense of style. It even warrants a growth in your confidence and maturity.

As the idealization of a glow-up is triggers the most beautiful part of you in the process, putting a plan to action will bring about a journey that will both challenge and strengthen you. The key part of this journey; consistency.

Consistency has the potential to be the most challenging part of desired change, which coincides with discipline. It is a call to accountability, and there are no shortcuts through discipline and consistency. The joy in its essence is that the longer you stay in practice, the easier it will become. My suggestions would be to start with the mental, trust in the spiritual to guide and lead you, and compliment immediate gratification with the physical – keeping you focused, trusting the process.

“The greatest gift of a glow up is that it can touch everyone around you. Let your transformation be an example of positivity, strength, and resilience.”

THE MENTAL GLOW UP

Life and death are in the power of the tongue, a proverb that needs to other context. What you say are your unconscious desires out loud and they have the power to influence the trajectory of your life, as your subconscious thoughts become your reality. This the cornerstone of nearly every book centered around manifestation and the law of attraction. The more you engage into the practice of affirming positive thoughts, the more you will see your reality shift in a positive way. This context context of the law of attraction, suggesting that focused thoughts influence your reality, should be the primary focus in training and feeding positivity into your mind.. Your subconscious will naturally align to attract the very belief of your thoughts.

The best way I have found in training the mind to naturally make space for positive thoughts are through words of affirmation. Words of affirmation can help to build your self-esteem and intentionally align your thoughts, ultimately aligning you to attract your desired outcome.

THE SPIRITUAL GLOW UP

Faith and Trust. Faith is assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Trust requires your entire being to have an absolute knowing that what is meant for you will never pass you by. Faith is inseparable from trust, and requires the understanding that we do not dictate the timing, we simply have to trust the process and know that everything happens in divine timing.

Understanding that the depth of your faith will fluctuate; fear and doubt will riddle your mind, and comfort will challenge your consistency. Trust the process. Remain present and stay grounded in the understanding that success is a journey’s to a destination. Through this process you will unlock depths of yourself you didn’t know existed, and find yourself becoming stronger than you had ever known to be. You will grow; even when your growth feels immeasurable, it is occurring, Staying present will allow you to see that. Before you know it, you will celebrating just how far you’ve come.

“Don’t underestimate the power of consistency. By practicing simple disciplines daily, you lay the groundwork for lifelong success in every aspect of your life.
― Linsey Mills

THE PHYSICAL

The first thought to come to mind when mentioning a glow-up are the changes that complement the physical: eating a balanced diet with more fruits and vegetables, a killer workout plan that tightens the body in all the right places, getting more rest, dressing better, a change in hair or in your personal style and above all – drinking more water because the skin should be skinning!

Each of these are great and the most physically rewarding because they are tangible progressions that are easier to measure.  Some elements of a physical glow-up will have its challenges, but again when you strengthen the mind and reaffirm your purpose and goals, you can achieve anything. It will not come easy, but it will be worth it. Your future self will thank you for the consistent efforts of today. When it gets hard, remind yourself to do it anyway. The time will pass regardless.

Your Glow Up will be an incredible journey of your personal transformation that knows no limits. Don’t rush it, because all good things take time. Decide who you are, who you aspire to be write it down and become her. As you continue to write the chapters in the book of your life, dream big with brilliance and intention. Watch the beauty unfold in your life a day at a time, before you know it you will be unrecognizable.
