The Grammy winner, who wrote the book "More than Pretty,” tells us has she struggled for years to feel good enough in her career and life. But now, She explains that she feels being "pretty" means shining from the inside out, owning who you are, feeling comfortable in your own skin, and not needing validation from others affirming that you are pretty or good enough. She also notes, "Your pretty has to have a purpose and it has to have power."
She also shares that she had to work hard to not care about what others thought about her physical appearance and to celebrate herself no matter her size or her number of likes on social media.
So how can someone unlock their own inner beauty and potential? Erica suggests the following:
Own your emotions - whether they are good or bad. "Don't fake it just to make it," she says.
Realize your norms will change - She notes that changing as we age is a good thing and someone in their 40s should not be the same person they were in 20s.
Affirm yourself - Erica says this should take place every day. She suggests telling yourself you can conquer the day, pass every hurdle, and succeed at life's daily tests. She feels speaking to yourself in the mirror every day is "essential."
