There are times in our life when we feel at our best. The times we feel beautiful, the times we feel confident, overjoyed and happy. When these times happen, depends totally on our life journey and sometimes the choices we make. But at some point we may be able to witness and experience one, two or all of them.
How we feel can determine our actions and choices, and so it is worth noting some of the times in your life where you have felt your best as well as acknowledging the times in your life where things haven’t gone to plan. With that in mind, here are some of the times when we feel at our best and why.
On your wedding day
Your wedding day. Whether you have already had it, are about to, or dream of it happening one day, it is going to be the day that you feel incredible. There is just so much surrounding that special day for you. The wedding dress, for starters, is going to have you feeling incredible. It is the dress that made you feel special in the shop, or when you tried it on, it is the dress that you are going to walk down the aisle to your partner in. Not only that but the effort with your hair, your makeup perhaps, your overall look, this is a day that you will feel at your best and perhaps your most beautiful.
When you are pregnant
Some people love being pregnant, others don’t. But for some, you get that managing pregnancy glow that just makes you look and feel incredible. You feel empowered, because your body is doing something amazing, and you feel lucky and grateful for the journey you are about to embark on. When you’re pregnant your body gets a surge of hormones which can improve the condition of your hair, your nails and your skin, so while it can be tough being pregnant you can look and feel at your best at the same time.
Having just given birth
You may think that giving birth isn’t going to be a pretty sight, and you are right in thinking that. It is the most liberating journey you go on, and whether that is by giving birth naturally, with help or via a Caesarean section, after the baby is born and you are handed them for the first time you will feel incredible. There is a sudden surge of hormones that are pumped around your body at that moment, perhaps adrenaline, or endorphins, but you will feel happy, content, accomplished, and those firs pictures you will also be extremely proud of yourself and your family. It is certainly a special time for anyone.
Just feeling happy in your own skin
It doesn’t have to be a special occasion to make you feel your best. Sometimes the stars can align and you just feel it. Picture the scene, you are looking your best having found some amazing women’s dresses online. Your skin is looking great. You feel energised, you feel happy. Your mental health is the best it has been. You are sleeping great, you have the best people around you and you are loving life. This is a time in your life to celebrate and acknowledge that you feel your best.
Accomplishing a personal goal
Finally, accomplishing a personal goal can have you looking and feeling at your best and this is going to be different for everyone. It might be that you reach a milestone in your career. Perhaps a promotion you have worked tirelessly for or a speech you have just nailed. Maybe it is a fitness journey you are on and the goal is something to be proud of, accomplishing a run in a specific time or competing in some way. Once you complete something you have been working towards the feelings are just off the scale. You feel proud and there is no feeling quite like it. This is definitely a time in your life to celebrate. Setting goals is something that many of us do each day, but do we actually celebrate achieving even the small victories? Sometimes it is the steps that you take along the way that you need to celebrate as you can still be feeling your absolute best during this time.
Let’s hope that this has given you something to think about when it comes to the times in your life where you have felt your best.
