So I realize that it is already the 5th but I did this once before and I think it’s an awesome thing to encourage all of you!
Growing up I never thought I was beautiful. I mean I couldn’t take a compliment up until a few years back because I was so insecure with myself. I would literally wear makeup EVERYWHERE I went. The store, school, the gym, I would take so much time to get ready because the thought of anyone seeing the real me was freighting. Then one day I stopped caring so much about what people thought and slowly started to realize that I was beautiful no matter what.
Being comfortable in your own skin is hard and we all have our flaws. Mine as of recently has been terrible acne, but that’s not stopping me from the no makeup march movement! I did this about two years ago. I literally didn’t wear an ounce of makeup for an entire month. By the end of the month I was loving the way I looked without makeup that when i did start wearing it again it was minimal to none and I would only put in effort for special occasions. It taught me to feel beautiful in my own skin!
I realize that this may seem silly to some of you but even if its just one day, a day you would normally wear a full face a makeup, you’ll see how amazing your natural beauty is. So I’m encouraging and challenging you all to embrace your beauty and show the world how amazing you all are!
Be brave, join the movement, and show the world your beauty
I’ve been pondering what to give up for lent all day and I realize I should have come up with this before now but that’s besides the point.
Lately I’ve been making excuses when it comes to the gym. “I went 3 times this week I can skip tonight” or “I’ve had a long day at work I’ll just go tomorrow”. Long story short I’ve blown off the gym too many times within the last month and enough is enough.
If I want to feel better I need to stop with the excuses, working out is important to me and coming up with countless excuses isn’t doing me any good.
So that being said gym excuses are done with and it’s time to start getting back into the swing of things!
Getting back into the swing of things makes me super happy.
Meals are prepped and packed for tomorrow, and drinking my body weight in water because I still feel super dehydrated from my booze fest yesterday.
Long story short I’m never drinking again.
