The evolution of my thoughts over the course of a week without makeup👇🏼 Disclaimer: this was not a self imposed ban - I left my makeup bag in Sydney last weekend. I also still had mascara. There is also no filter on this photo, obv.🙅🏻♀️
➖“I hope (insert name of people I met with) doesn’t think I haven’t made an effort or that I don’t care.”
➖“I’ve just cried for 20mins and now don’t have concealer to make myself look like I haven’t been crying for 20mins. (I then proceeded to scour the whole apartment on the off chance I had some old foundation hiding somewhere - just like I do looking for chocolate.)
➖“There’s gotta be something here I can use as foundation!”
➖“When is someone going to tell me I look tired or unwell?”
➖“I’m so glad I had my eyebrows done last week so I don’t look completely unkept.”
➖“I better wash/exfoliate my face and treat it extra nice so it looks fresh”
➖“My skin is actually not that bad.”
➖“Wow, I got ready pretty quick this morning.”
➖“You know what, I kinda like my freckles.”
In what has been the most wonderful silver lining this week, I remembered to love my bare bare skin and embrace every pore of it.
Also, I could see that no amount of makeup can make you look as beautiful as you look with a full heart and smile on your face. 😁 So invest some time this weekend to filling up your heart, and less to covering yourself up.
Give it a shot, see what happens... 😘
Choose pleasure as your driving force, not pressure.
The amount of work we do is the same.
Choose to be delighted by what you create, the process, the intricacies, the natural ebbs and flows.
Choose joy. 👌🏼 #risesisterrise
