Finding Beauty

I don't know if my readers know that I was a free lance make up artist in film, TV and Bridal and skin specialist for Biotherm.

I have always looked way younger than my years. The number one cause of aging is stress. I all of a sudden noticed my eyes, dark circles and tiny wrinkles, it was like I drastically aged in two months.

I decided to start with my good friend who worked in the industry of fakeness. My friend worked in the world of fakeness but really believes in everything else first.

"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse, "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child Love's you for a long, long time, not just to play with you, but Really Love's you, then you become REAL." "Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit "Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful,"When you are Real you don't mind being hurt"



We all know the saying.
I decided to write this blog today due to some small insignificant events that happened last year and are still trickling into my current life. This relates to owning ones shit.
