Last week I talked a little bit about why I have insecurities and how I love my lips. This week I’d like to focus on my hair.
But first, let me tell you a little about #MyBeautyIs. I feel like so often we get so focused on the things we don’t like about ourselves. I watch the young girls around me who watch their moms talk about their weight, their double chin, and their other problem areas and these girls who are as young as 7 have also told me about their body that they don’t like.
Well, ladies, it’s time to change. Even if you don’t have children, these young girls are watching you, listening to you complain, and taking on these roles. Is this really where we want them to go as they head into their teenage years? For me, it is not.
So today I’d like to make mention of my hair. It is thick, grows quickly, and since moving out of my house, I’ve had a lot of pride in my hair. My mother cut my hair a few times and I’ll tell you right now, it was some of the most embarrassing hair cuts I’ve ever had. I mean, good for her for taking on that challenge, but as if I wasn’t already really unique, then you add in my crazy bowl hair cut … ah. Things were bad back in the day.
But now I love my girly hair. And to be honest, I’ve never even colored it at all because I love its color so much.
So tell me, what do you love about yourself? And make sure to hashtag it with #MyBeautyIs. I want to see your pictures and how much you love yourself!
