Have you claimed your beauty? Do you own it? Share it? Embrace it? Or…are you one in the millions who are constantly doubting, berating, criticizing, loathing and downright not honoring the gift of beauty we are all born with?
This is a topic that shines mostly in our younger population, but it begins with our elders. For if the elders do not claim their beauty, their worth, the wrinkles which define the amazing journey they have walked or the grey hair that simply shows one’s life lived well…then how can our younger generation accept themselves for who they are?
You are their teachers and they need to hear from you in positive light!
My life began with my beauty not being defined, honored or celebrated. There was always something ‘just not right’ in others eyes. It was a dress, hairstyle or contacts instead of glasses that would make me just right. My worth was measured in appearance. If you think no one’s paying attention to your hatred, you are wrong. They pay close attention.
It all begins with each other. We are all mirrors to another.
We must STOP body hatred, criticizing each other and more importantly ourselves. We need to see, honor and love the beauty within our own body, our own journey and our own portrait.
Today, claim beauty.
