I have a friend whose daughter ends notes she has written to herself with the closing ‘Love’ and her name. I’ve always thought it a wonderful way to boost one’s self-esteem. Jennifer’s Mantra Mirror seems to be another great way to remind ourselves we too deserve our love.
To make her mantra mirror, Jennifer assembled the following:
- mirror with a wooden frame
- 150-grit sandpaper
- masking tape
- small paintbrush
- acrylic paint
- paper plate
- satin polyurethane spray varnish
- dry-erase marker or lipstick (!)
Basically, Jennifer sanded, masked, primed, painted and sealed her old mirror to perfection. Then, with the help of the dry-erase, she added alternating phrases to the bottom of her mirror. Some of her suggestions of mirror-worthy phrases include ‘Living well is the best revenge’, ‘Live abundantly’, and ‘Change starts now’.
