Beauty and personal style; Bloom where you are planted

414136772_dd9b2ec29fThere comes a time when we realize that as a woman we hold the power to be our best self.

…that we can settle in on and embrace who we have become and set aside the angst-imposed beauty-striving in favor of beauty-thriving.

…to bloom where we are planted in life.

As Kevin Kline’s character famously said in the movie My Old Lady, “A perfect flower is nearly old”.

It is the accumulation of our unique qualities that define our personal beauty.  Whether we have short legs or thick ones, low brows or non-existent ones, a wide back or thin lashes or whatever “they” tell us is imperfection, these are the very things that work to our advantage to help define our  personal style.

OUR unique personal style.  Why not set aside the scattered/obsessive, insta-flashing, tweetering and glossy layouts of information out there about how we should c h a n g e ourselves, instead why not BE ourselves?  We alone hold the power and I would like to encourage it.

All this spring I am going to be writing on this topic.  Some of what I am thinking about is how body proportions are trendy & how to embrace our own, how facial bone structure contributes to how our skin ages & how to be OK with the results and what goes too far in the world of skin rejuvenation.

Let start a dialog, OK?  Please leave a comment.

Gorgeous roses at the end of their life.  Their color is intensified and their shape is perfected.
