So I showed up curious and a bit skeptical—is anyone really all that. Two hours later, I am so pleased my daughters read her, listen to her podcasts and take in her. She is a wonderfully flawed, intelligent, loving spirit and about as “authentic” as someone can be as they speak to a few thousand people.
One topic she touched on—and she talks about it a lot-- is how marketers consistently make girls and women feel they aren’t enough…I hate that reality. Your butt isn’t round enough, hair isn’t shiny enough, stomach isn’t flat enough, blah blah blah. And about beauty and what really makes someone beautiful—makes them magnetic.
She spoke about how filling yourself/surrounding yourself with the things that light you up. Making sure your joy is a part of your day. That you are present to notice the beauty that surrounds you in the people you love, the things you love, the places you love--you fill up with joy. And that joy at lights your face—lights up your being and how you are with others—you exude beauty.
I kept thinking about that sense of being beauty-filled as I finished this piece these last few days. And I thought of the things that make me light up—creating art, spending time with my family, sitting in my backyard and watching nature, beating my guy at chess or at least laughing together as we trash talk each other…and this painting became even more beauty-filled.
Wishing you your beauty-filled space in this day. Namaste.
