Hey guys! Today I was going to write a blog post about some of the beauty products that I use on the daily basis but I decided to switch it up and write about something that has taken me a long time to come to terms and that is not only accepting who I am but embracing my beauty. I have spent so much time trying to change both my inner and outer appearance so that I could impress someone who’ve I liked, or tried to fit in with a group of people who I thought were cool, and looking back on all those things now all I really can say is, “Man that was dumb!”
Yes, people are ever changing and yes, I think it is fun to embrace new trends and tryout new things but often I did and sometimes continue to do things so that I can fit a certain standard and now after doing a lot of soul searching in 2014 I think I’m just going to do me.
I love my dark skin, I love my baby dreadlocks, and I love my spaghetti arms and awkward frame and those are not things that I wouldn’t have always admitted. I believe that life is a journey and people are continually growing and learning new things about themselves everyday. I have learned from a lot of the women in the blogging community to just be who you are and embrace what you’ve got and I am so thankful for that!
With all this being said I encourage everyone to embrace who they are (if you don’t already) and share your beauty with the world.
I hope everyone has a happy Thursday!
