Life experiences can affect a person's well-being, perspective, and outlook on life. Stress and traumatic experiences can have negative impacts on physical and mental health. People under stress tend to have a different viewpoint of things, and their thoughts, attitude, and behavior are also affected. Life events can at times make people have trouble coping and bouncing back from these situations. Sometimes older people who have gone through many life events can have a tendancy to withdraw.
In the case of Phoebe, a seventy-six-year old woman, her decision to move from Vermont after having lived there for forty-nine years was a major change for her. Relocating was something that made a huge impact in her life that she described it as devastating, to the point that she got ill from it. After her recuperation, she was dealt another hard blow when she lost her son.
All these stressful events, coupled with Phoebe's age took a toll on her appearance. After watching many makeover videos, Phoebe made the decision to visit Christopher Jon Hopkins, also known as the Makeover Guy. She was impressed at the transformation other women had undergone under Christopher's skilled hands, and she felt that she needed a makeover herself.
At the beginning of the video, Phoebe is shown before the makeover. As the video progresses, a very different Phoebe is shown without the eyeglasses, wearing lighter colored clothes, and sporting a new hairstyle and hair color, and looking much happier. The physical transformation has such a positive effect on Phoebe that the happiness on her face is evident. In fact, Phoebe herself said she feels rejuvenated. Her attitude towards life has also changed. She herself acknowledged the positivity she was feeling, expressing her happiness at finally enjoying the present.
Phoebe's statement about living day by day in what she calls her new life shows how positive her attitude has become towards life. Her makeover has boosted her self-confidence and has changed her perception of life in general. It is amazing how a total makeover can lift one's spirits and be a person's confidence booster.
