Baring yourself might seem like the most difficult thing to do. At least in my case. Sometimes we fail to find the beauty within us (not just physically). We sometimes forget the beautiful characters we possess while focusing in the things we want to change.
It’s essential to always find the beauty within you. I recently did a photo shoot. It’s a photo shoot I had always wanted to try out but never thought I’d be able to pull it off.
A no makeup photo shoot.
My uncertainty came from the fact that I’d have zero makeup done and I wasn’t sure how that would come out on camera.
The pictures finally came out and honestly I liked them. I did. But I wasn’t sure what the reactions of people were going to be. Because, THIS IS ME. Like, the real me! Nothing was shielding me. If people see these pictures, they see me.
After a few hours of contemplation I decided I was gonna post the pictures on social media.
This photo shoot thought me a lot of things:
- They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but before any beholder I say “I am beautifully made”.
- The people that love you will love you. So feel free to express your truest self.
- Be selfish. Don’t try to please people with your life. You only life once right?
- Once you have accepted your flaws no one can use them against you!
I’ll be posting more on my social media pages so follow me to see them.
