Hey YOU. Yes YOU! That’s who I want to see. In unadulterated beauty. In unfiltered goodness. In genuine purity. In elegant simplicity. In silent eloquence. In boisterous merriment. In reticent pensiveness. In raging boldness. In out-of-the-box madness. In irrepressible humor. In unquenchable curiosity. In all-that-you-truly-are form.
I want to see YOU draped in nothing but your authenticity. Yes, the real you. Not the dolled up, heavily made up you. Not the multiple-diet, pound-shaven you. Not the embellished, propped-up brand you. Not the insatiably hungry-for-likes you. Not the superficial, insta-you. Not anyone else attempting to be you.
Why? It’s the only language that I know, in my head and in my heart. Authenticity. In my world, everything is just as it is. Real and deep to the core. Yes, wrinkles, spider veins, and more. I say what I mean and I mean what I say. I do what I do because that’s my personal choice. I carve out my day in a way that honors my soul and casts my light on whom I want to behold.
So, if you’d like for us to live happily in our shared world, this would be a great start. I’ll be myself and you’ll be yourself. It’s as simple as that. Be-YOU-tiful! That’s all you ever have to be! ❤️
This is my love message to my nieces and all the young girls in my life. And yes, this is also a sweet reminder for all gorgeous women out there who know that their real beauty and worth lie in who they are deep within. To all of you ladies, Stay Be-YOU-tiful! ❤️
