A perfectly flawed wabi sabi

Okay, so I’ve pretty much turned away from celeb culture media etc… I don’t read magazines , watch T.V -look at what is in. I go with my own style. In these last 5 years where I don’t know/ care to know  who I should be following looks/music/lifestyle wise – what is the best shade of hair colour to have, shoes to wear. I have come to terms with me and my reflection.

When I see a picture of me or me ready to go out . These days I’m impressed with the person smiling back. I go out looking good and feeling good and laughing and connecting with people in a true, authentic way. I’m truly happier these days.  A recent post I published Perfectly flawed  where I   put a pic up of me and my new found acceptance of my flawed teeth. Basically, I took a pic of myself with my new phone to check out how good the camera is and the pic I most liked was the one I was showing my true self.  I see that is what makes me me and I am beautiful.

I see girls trying to cover up their freckles and skin colour. Their eyebrows!  Girls have walking caterpillars plastered on too their faces these days. What the hell? What did I miss? and thank fuck for it.  Their beautiful complexions. Hiding what truly makes them tick and the self hatred is clear and furious and I feel pity. I feel anger that my sisters don’t seem to be waking up quickly enough to the Western disease of ‘ you are not right – never will be.. unless you look… wear …. do…. ‘

I feel free that I am not caught up too much in that whole superficial world  any more and when I start to doubt that I may be deluding myself .I receive  the most incredible feedback from Eve Messenger  who introduces me to a new philosophy.

WABI-SABI

I am not deluded. I am enlightened. This concept of embracing my flaws is one that is alive and already out there. I put myself out there, stayed with it  and found my flow spin out in  a new positive direction. The more I challenge societies expectations of what it is to be a happy me living in my world, the more I have become open to how wonderful and amazing I truly am.

Embrace wabi sabi –  no, not that green stuff you eat with sushi but  just as soul cleansing and refreshing.

Join me in the wabi sabi revolution. Dare to be you!

Before you say she wants attention. Read on.

For years I have hated my teeth and most of my looks. Two days I ago I was messing with my new phone and took a few selfies and my fave pic is the one with me and perfectly flawed teeth. It’s what makes me unique. 3d60478b9136367550be72318081febd

Why didn’t I have this insight and inner confidence years ago? Time to embrace the now. 

What it beauty?  Whatever you choose to find.
