Sometimes that’s easier said then done, am I right? But I truly believe you can walk this out everyday when you find your true identity. When you know your place in the world, you don’t feel pressure to compare or question yourself. You walk out life in confidence instead of looking all around to find your answers. When you find inner peace, it seeps out in all you do!
Well how do I find inner peace? Great question! My experience in this has been life changing and is an experience that has marked me forever! And it’s one word, JESUS. He is the prince of peace. He died to know you! I’ll talk more about my experience with Jesus in upcoming blogs. 🙂 He sure did save me from myself!
Beauty is more than just the appearance of how things look, it’s deeper! Beauty is all around us, all the time! For me, I feel like sometimes I get so centered on my needs and my wants I forget to enjoy the little things and find the beauty within. My husband is so good at living in the moment and he’s taught me so much about learning to enjoy life so much more! I naturally am future focused and looking for a plan of action in my day to day. It’s easy to focus on all that’s wrong and want to change it to the way we think things should be or how the world tell us it should be. I believe that beauty is finding joy in what makes you happy. Beauty is what we define it to be. For me beauty is in the imperfections.
As a makeup artist I’m trained to fix flaws. In training we literally are taught to make everyone’s face the perfect oval, they say that’s the ideal face shape. Well who’s they I say? How can they categorize the billions of people on the planet to one ideal face shape!? I say, no way! Embrace our crooked noses and small foreheads. Our blemishes and wide set eyes. We are all beautiful!! I think it’s time we train our eyes to see beauty for what it is, not what media and people say it should be.
I know this can be a heavy topic but take a deep breathe and look in the mirror and say, “I love me! I embrace who I was created to be! I am beautiful! I am capable! I’m worthy! I’m loved by the creator of the universe!”
Now go have an amazing day,
