Model and Founder of Beauty Has No Size tells the truth behind the camera
When I got home from my photo shoot today, I took a quick glance in the mirror. I saw the smokey eye shadow, fake eye lashes, and dark plumb lipstick from my photo shoot earlier that morning. As I stood in front of the mirror, I remembered back to this amazing weekend I just had. Speaking on Friday night to a group of young women, wearing pajamas, playing amazing games and taking goofy pictures. Then on Saturday spending time with amazing friends at a conference, starting a drum circle, and laughing till our stomachs hurt. Yet when I looked in the mirror at my makeup, I realized something. I felt more beautiful this weekend hanging out with young people, playing in a drum circle, wearing little makeup, and running around barefoot...then I did on set today at my photo shoot wearing all this makeup. Then it struck me..feeling beautiful has nothing to do with the makeup we have on, clothes we wear, or how we look in a picture. It has everything to do with the freedom that explodes from our hearts, the light that shines from our souls, and the joy that illuminates from our eyes. Makeup, fashion, and pictures are cool. And you can have all those things and still not feel beautiful. But true beauty, freedom, and joy come from knowing who you were born to be..and living that out. Photo shoots don't make me beautiful, freedom DOES.
