Did you connect with that video? Yeah, me too.
That’s why I’ve taken a plunge.
See, motherhood is amazing. I LOVE that I get to be a mom. My baby girl brings me so much joy.
And I love that I get to be a writer. My books and these articles are so important to me, and I love sharing them with all of you.
But I’m not going to lie, it’s become easier than ever to ignore my own needs. Most of my endeavors are pretty isolating. I’m a mom and a wife, but I’m also a woman with goals and dreams and aspirations. I’m also a person who struggles with depression and anxiety and who has taken the backseat to other things going on around me because my brain says I’m “just not that important”.
My brain likes to lie to me.
But I’m learning to stop listening to my brain and start listening to the truth.
And the truth is that all of us are divine, and we have a responsibility to let that divinity shine.
I think every woman has been fed the lie at some point in her life that she is not beautiful. It’s not true, but she eats it up again and again. And as that lie clogs her spiritual arteries, her glow diminishes. She feels unconfident and unloveable, and I’m sick of seeing this pattern. I’m sick of living this pattern.
Makeup is such a trivial thing.
We use this paint to hide our perceived imperfections. But what if we didn’t have to use it that way? What if we didn’t have to feel like we were making a statement every time we left our house with a bare face?
I was rushed and didn’t have time to get ready.
I know I’m supposed to trust that I’m pretty and don’t need makeup, so here I am.
No, I’m not sick. And no, I’m not lazy. (Well okay, maybe I’m a little lazy.)
I’ve got enough on my plate without making myself presentable for the rest of the world.
It’s like we’re making excuses that nobody is really asking for. Honestly, nobody else cares what you look like, not consciously anyway. (Though I can share a telling story on that topic.) The point is, you care how you look, because how you look affects how you feel, which in turn affects how you act. Don’t tell me you’re not more confident in your interactions when you feel gorgeous.
So, what if we could somehow enhance every bit of beauty that is already on our face, and shine a light on it in less than ten minutes each morning?
