How I look is important to me. I recognize that my appearance is what people see first when they look at me. Of more value, though, is what I see in the mirror. My appearance matters to me.

When I spend less time on my appearance, I experience less pride in myself. There is a connection between my physical appearance and my internal psyche. How I view my physical self is intimately connected to how I view my internal self.

A relevant aspect of my physical appearance is the time I take to look attractive.
Although life takes over sometimes, I consistently make every effort to care for my appearance. I recognize that tending to my grooming is a positive daily practice.

Just like brushing my hair and washing my face, the condition of my body and the clothing I wear matter. Making the effort to tone my body keeps me healthy and feeling proud of myself. Investing time to select clothing that enhances my appearance increases feelings of self-worth.

I want to live my life with dignity and self-respect. So I take pride in my appearance. I want to feel “presentable” not only to others but to myself first.

Today, I renew my vow to make consistent efforts to keep my appearance fresh and attractive. I allow time to take care of myself because I enjoy feeling pride in my appearance.
