I adore these words. They speak to my soul and remind me that beauty comes from the heart. Here are three reasons why you should make this quote your new beauty motto.
1. When you look back on your life, you won’t remember all the times you had the perfect winged eyeliner. Instead, you’ll recall the nights you spent in good company, the food that nourished more than your body, and the deep laughs that made your cheeks hurt.
2. In the words of the poet Warsan Shire, “It is not my responsibility to be beautiful. I’m not alive for that purpose. My existence is not about how desirable you find me.” Life is about more than chasing narrow societal standards of beauty. Instead, chase the things that fill you with joy.
3. External beauty will fade. But taut skin and subtle lips are only requirements for contentment if you define them as such. A blissful soul does not fade.

I’ve been a little behind on my posting schedule! I love writing and sharing my life with all of my lovely readers but this past week has been INSANE a.k.a. life of a bride-to-be. Lately I’ve only had about 2 hours a day of personal time and I have to fit everything into that chunk of time(i.e. workouts, laundry, showers, wedding planning, eating, cooking, reading, writing).
Although I’m looking forward to getting back to my regular posting schedule, I just wanted to say that sometimes it’s nice to just… live. To experience each moment, to soak in your environment, and to forget about the digital world.
How often do you disconnect from your online life? Have you ever considered getting rid of your social media accounts? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
I have some super fun posts coming to the blog next week so be sure to stop by!
Sometimes life takes us in unexpected directions and we have to redefine our dreams. But just because things didn’t work out as planned doesn’t mean we’ve failed. The awesome song ‘Closing Time’ puts it best, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end”.
Doesn’t this quotes make you want to show up to a business meeting in a sequin covered dress?! I love how bold Harry Winston’s words make me feel. While my goal every morning is not to put on something that’ll make everyone I pass stare, I can appreciate the idea of just going for it and not giving a damn.
