We buy into notions and narratives of what beauty looks like often losing our own definition of beauty. I am entering a beautiful awakening and so grateful for my self-awareness journey. I am embracing my natural curly hair and loving it. For me true beauty comes naturally from within personally I have no desire to look like anyone else but my true self. I would like to thank Gareth from Inch Hairdressing in Paddington Brisbane, you are amazing.
We often lose our sense of self by comparing ourselves to unrealistic superficial photos of perfection. So often criticizing, condemning and thinking negatively of ourselves feeling like we are not good enough as we are. Today whilst having my hair cut I visualised cutting away every notion, belief and rule about what beauty should look like instead focusing on my own definition of beauty. I am not going to sugar coat the truth I was so nervous. At the same time “wow” I felt so free living by my own rules and doing so fearlessly.
Feeling good about yourself is all about being honest with yourself and what you truly want out of life. For me I want to express my truest expression of my soul without comparison. Most importantly to love myself unconditionally and embrace the whole me as I am.
Discover your own definition of beauty and what beauty means to you. Forget about social media images and worldly narratives instead think about what makes you feel good from within.
