Makeup-less Monday!

I have to do this today because I am going out of town for a week and will not be available to update. This week's makeup-less Monday is brought to you by the beautiful Crystal. She wrote something to go with her picture, and I just had to include it. It really brought tears to my eyes.

I came across "Makeup less Mondays" on facebook, and it intrigued me. I loved the concept of it! Being a larger person by others standards has always been hard.  When I was younger, I used to wear a lot of makeup to try and disguise my larger shape.  I felt that if people saw my beautiful face, heavy with makeup, that they wouldn’t see my ugly fat body.

As I got older, I was more comfortable not wearing much makeup or none at all.  I learnt to love myself as a "WHOLE".  I remember the first day I began to love myself without makeup. I was getting dressed in the morning and I just glanced in the mirror, I didn’t see a disgusting fat girl, what I saw was a beautiful young woman with so much potential.  In fact, I didn’t even notice any flaws in my body, I just saw me!

I truly believe that if people look at themselves in the mirror without any negativity they would be astonished with the natural beauty they see, however, as I learnt you have to truly know yourself, love yourself from the inside out.  Forget what the media says is beautiful, because in my eyes, everyone including myself is absolutely exquisite!
