Nude-Faced Women Are Definitely Amazing Lovers.

Nude-Faced Women Are Definitely Amazing Lovers.

It’s been a few months since former supermodel Tyra Banks posed for People Magazine “nude-faced.” She was praised for being brave enough to smile on the cover of a magazine without makeup on her face. She is very brave. This post is a tribute to her and to women like my wife who know how to light up a room with or without makeup. I respect these women because…

1. They’re confident.

Confidence is sexy, and it persuades people. Rock a day with no makeup like it’s the new thing, and don’t be surprised if others follow along.

2. They create more “wow” moments.

We all love a good transformation scene, when a lovable girl gets dressed up and captivates an entire room. We saw it in The Princess Diaries, A Walk to Remember, A Cinderella Story, and other classic movies. These breathtaking moments are made possible by girls who don’t go to the grocery store dressed like they’re going to prom.

3. They’re more kissable.

If you’re looking for five words to kill romance, try, “Don’t mess up my makeup.” On a similar note, my wife is a big fan of lipstick, which looks great on her but not so much on me. Sometimes, this spoils opportunities for a romantic kiss.

4. They’re not afraid to sweat.

I love it when girls join in a game of volleyball or soccer — the whole experience is way more fun. Similar to the kissing argument, it makes me sad to see a girl opt-out because she’s afraid to sweat off her makeup. Go for it!

5. They don’t monopolize the bathroom.

When we first got married, my wife and I lived in a tiny apartment with one, single-sink bathroom. Getting ready was a lot simpler on days when she didn’t wear makeup.

6. They put less pressure on my appearance.

Hey, don’t judge me! It’s nice to have a day when I can dress casually and relax without feeling like a total slob.

7. They’re not afraid to be authentic.

Attraction is certainly important in a relationship, and we all have occasions when we want to put our best foot forward. But equally crucial to a healthy relationship is intimacy, feeling like you truly know a person. I find it refreshing to share life with a woman who’s comfortable in her own skin.

8. They save money.

I didn’t put this one first because I didn’t want to sound naggy, but I’m perpetually shocked by how expensive makeup is. If you can make mascara last longer by giving it the day off now and then, you won’t hear me complaining.

9. They’re free to be more spontaneous.

When a fun opportunity presents itself like last-minute concert tickets, sometimes you have to hop in the car and go for it. Memories like these never happen if you refuse to leave the house without an hour to get ready.

10. They know the value of inner beauty.

Not all beauty is obvious. Many precious forms are hidden in qualities such as kindness, bravery, and perseverance. It’s hard not to be attracted to a girl who knows there’s more to beauty than a moment in a mirror.

11. They help others feel accepted.

Life can feel like one big competition as people constantly vie for power and popularity. It’s so relaxing and inspiring to be around someone who’s brave enough to drop the act and just be herself.

12. They have more inner peace.

Some people run themselves ragged trying to impress others through their appearance, and according to Australian Instagram star Essena O’Neil, it can be exhausting. “Without realizing, I’ve spent majority of my teenage life being addicted to social media, social approval, social status and my physical appearance…I was surrounded by all this wealth and all this fame and all this power and yet they were all miserable, and I had never been more miserable.” Props to the girls who reject the game and save some energy for more meaningful pursuits.

13. They demonstrate maturity.

Life’s not perfect. Some days you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world, and others you’ll just want to crawl back into bed. When life throws a curve ball, it’s the people with the right priorities who have the chance to shine. I deeply respect women who can conquer a day without makeup and who practice, as Michele Cushatt beautifully puts it, “making peace with an imperfect life.”

The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

    Why You Need a Vision

    Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

    How to Create Your Life Vision

    Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

    What Do You Want?

    The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

    It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

    Some tips to guide you:

    • Remember to ask why you want certain things
    • Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want.
    • Give yourself permission to dream.
    • Be creative. Consider ideas that you never thought possible.
    • Focus on your wishes, not what others expect of you.

    Some questions to start your exploration:

    • What really matters to you in life? Not what should matter, what does matter.
    • What would you like to have more of in your life?
    • Set aside money for a moment; what do you want in your career?
    • What are your secret passions and dreams?
    • What would bring more joy and happiness into your life?
    • What do you want your relationships to be like?
    • What qualities would you like to develop?
    • What are your values? What issues do you care about?
    • What are your talents? What’s special about you?
    • What would you most like to accomplish?
    • What would legacy would you like to leave behind?

    It may be helpful to write your thoughts down in a journal or creative vision board if you’re the creative type. Add your own questions, and ask others what they want out of life. Relax and make this exercise fun. You may want to set your answers aside for a while and come back to them later to see if any have changed or if you have anything to add.

    What Would Your Best Life Look Like?

    Describe your ideal life in detail. Allow yourself to dream and imagine, and create a vivid picture. If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel. If you find it difficult to envision your life 20 or 30 years from now, start with five years—even a few years into the future will give you a place to start. What you see may surprise you. Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

    A few prompts to get you started:

    • What will you have accomplished already?
    • How will you feel about yourself?
    • What kind of people are in your life? How do you feel about them?
    • What does your ideal day look like?
    • Where are you? Where do you live? Think specifics, what city, state, or country, type of community, house or an apartment, style and atmosphere.
    • What would you be doing?
    • Are you with another person, a group of people, or are you by yourself?
    • How are you dressed?
    • What’s your state of mind? Happy or sad? Contented or frustrated?
    • What does your physical body look like? How do you feel about that?
    • Does your best life make you smile and make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, dig deeper, dream bigger.

    It’s important to focus on the result, or at least a way-point in your life. Don’t think about the process for getting there yet—that’s the next stepGive yourself permission to revisit this vision every day, even if only for a few minutes. Keep your vision alive and in the front of your mind.

    Plan Backwards

    It may sound counter-intuitive to plan backwards rather than forwards, but when you’re planning your life from the end result, it’s often more useful to consider the last step and work your way back to the first. This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

    • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?
    • What’s the most important choice you would’ve had to make?
    • What would you have needed to learn along the way?
    • What important actions would you have had to take?
    • What beliefs would you have needed to change?
    • What habits or behaviors would you have had to cultivate?
    • What type of support would you have had to enlist?
    • How long will it have taken you to realize your best life?
    • What steps or milestones would you have needed to reach along the way?

    Now it’s time to think about your first step, and the next step after that. Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

    It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
