Beauty From Within
I love playing with makeup, discovering new fashion, and let me just tell you that I LOVE BEING A GIRL! I’ve gotten comments over the years like, “Why do you wear high heels with jeans?” “You look so much better without so much makeup.” “You seem like all you care about is your appearance.” 😑 I’ve gotten love, hate, and everything in between. I’ve been hurt by comments and had to brush them off. Why is it so hard just being yourself? I happen to like who I am and having fun with all these girly things! This is my opinion. Let me repeat that…OPINION.
Growing up, I learned real quick to put up my guard with girls. For some reason, girls in school are so mean to each other! I just wanted to wear pink terry cloth shoes cuz they were comfy and i love pink, but apparently that wasn’t “on trend” and some girl said, “ummmm…WHAT are you wearing?” It hurt my feelings! I noticed that the best way to avoid that hurt feeling was to be catty first. So instead of goin on with my bad self, I wanted to say, “Ummmm…sweetheart what are YOU wearing?” *SMH* However, that’s not very nice and I did not want to allow mean people to change the person I was.
It really breaks my heart that girls are dealing with this type of bullying every day. Why can’t we build each other up instead of allowing jealousy or our own insecurities to rule us? Why is this so difficult for females? I believe it’s because hurt people hurt people. It’s time to put aside the hate and just love each other! Lets lift one another up! Some people love makeup and being girly. Some love to be natural and more conservative with their appearance. Some are a little edgy and hipster. There’s all kinds of kinds like the Miranda Lambert song says. 👸
I love to give my personal fashion and makeup tips, but hey, if it’s not your thing it’s not your thing! BE YOU!!!! Whatever that is, ROCK IT! Wear an excessive amount of makeup, sky high heels, and ripped jeans…or don’t! But no matter what, know that you are BEAUTIFUL. Not because of the clothes or makeup, but because of the person you are inside. You don’t NEED any of it. It’s just simply fun playin around with being a girl! Love people, love God, love yourself. Your heart and soul is what makes you truly beautiful. Do not allow society to change that sweet spirit, ladies. Somebody is mean to you? Brush it off and pray for them. 😉 Be the change! I’d rather be the sugar than salt. Cuz nobody wants salt in their sweet tea! 😘
Remember, you are sugar and spice and everything NICE! Now have an amazing Sunday evening!
