Inner Beauty is an asset that we should strive for daily, making sure that our heart and soul are pure in our interactions with ourselves and others. On Monday's Raw Talk Real Conversation we spoke about Trauma: Identifying it, Confronting It and Healing from It.....Starting the Process. When we start the healing process by doing the work to heal from the situations that have harmed us and caused us pain, we remove the toxic energy in our lives and make room for the inner beauty to shine through.
Moving forward once we are healed from the distress that trauma has caused us, we are excited to finally look in the mirror and see the inner beauty that we always knew was there. Now it is time to start on the outer beauty, now that is not to say we haven’t always worked on our outer beauty. Quite the contrary…..a lot of times to cover up the hurt and pain we dress up our outer beauty. We make sure that our hair is always done to perfection sometimes spending hundreds of dollars. Our brows, lashes and nails are always done…..makeup on fleek as the young people say, and we make sure that our appearance is on point. Covering up all the damage and betrayal in our lives.
BUT finally, we can feel good about ourselves to the point that we want our outer beauty to match the joy and happiness that we feel on the inside. We no longer feel like a fraud for dressing up and pampering our outer beauty for the world to see. We are now able to comprehend the statement that Self-Love is POWER! We did the work and now we’re ready to show the masses just how beautiful we are…..inside and out; and we are going to start with pampering ourselves naturally.
Now one thing I have learned about beauty is you can make it your own. Whether that is with the type of hairstyles you like and wear to the type of fashion you like to rock. Beauty is an individual effort and its only request is CONFIDENCE!
Now beauty is not only defined by hair, clothes and makeup, but how you take care of you. Beauty is also hair care/health, skin health (facials, cleaning & moisturizing), mind (meditation) body (exercising, diet, massages) and soul therapy (self-awareness, self-love & yoga) and improving/protecting your energy.
Beauty is all of this and so much more, so let’s not only focus on one or the other because both are equally important. Ladies let’s concentrate during this time of quarantine and self-isolation on getting our Glow Up on in all things BEAUTIFUL and remember Self-Love is POWER!
