While I do enjoy wearing makeup, especially on those fun occasions when I get extra glammed up for photo shoots and stage shows, I tend to dress super casual in my daily life — black tank tops and jeans mostly — and I wear little to no makeup. I’m enjoying natural me more and more. I suppose it’s part of my arrival into feeling whole.
It’s strange when I see photos of younger me and realize how out of touch I was then with my own presence — my own shine. I often felt dim inside. Insecure in some ways yet confident in others. I didn’t know how to enjoy the shine of my own light mainly because I crowded my life with social engagements and the noise of external sources.
Healing and growth has helped me to fully enjoy my own light and recognize my natural need for quiet time.
Aging is an interesting thing. I’d never want to go back to being younger me except for desiring to tell her, “You are enough and you are worthy.” So, I’m saying it now in my morning affirmation ritual.
I am enough.
I am worthy.
And hopefully in 20 years when I see photos of myself at this stage in my journey I will know I was the most whole, worthy me I could be because I no longer let the noise of the outside world tell me otherwise having fully cleared an inner channel of self-loving wholeness and worthiness.
That’s what I hope for everyone. Wholeness. Worthiness. So, I’m saying it to you.
You are enough.
You are worthy.
We all are…just as we are.
Let’s love ourselves so much with self-awareness that we couldn’t possibly pour fragmented unworthiness into our naturally bright shining children.
They are worthy just as they are.
