"I grew up in a family where we weren't allowed to talk about beauty or put emphasis on physical appearance..." ~Pam Grier
I originally had a long drawn out post about this quote and picture but of course Blogger being the hater that it is erased my post...or maybe it was the Blog god's way of saying that I was "doing too much and to try again" LOL! Either way, let me keep this short and sweet. Often times we put way too much emphasis on what's beautiful or what's not, what's in and what's out, whats acceptable and what's taboo, etc etc. We get so caught up in the journey that we forget the most important part of it. What are you LEARNING from your journey? I'm sure we all agree that Grier is stunning and that she did not for one second think that she was unattractive. Beauty simply wasn't a priority or a foucs. It was secondary. I've had some fab (and some not so fab) hair styles through out my trials but the most important aspect has not been how cute of a style I achieved. My greatest take away from this has been fully understanding who I was, who I am, and who I am destined to become. I adore all three of those individuals but I am extremely excited to meet the latter. So while I still take care of and enjoy my physical appearance I'm more so focused on my inner beauty. Make sense?
