Two very important people in my life right now are encouraging me to face & embrace my physical reality. One says that the world needs more visible stray hairs, shadows in face craters and individual impurities to spread the message that no matter how hard we try.. we'll never escape our natural image. Not in edited photos, pore-minimizing products or even shape wear.
Close your eyes. What does your face look like?
The other has a name for me when I'm without my girl costume, and fresh out of the shower. Shower Beej. Shower Beej is so important because when I step out, it is the most unappealing and vulnerable I feel I can exist. To be seen as beautiful in that light, for my reality, is something I encourage anyone who reads this post to cozy up to. Lovingly refer to your raw character as Shower ________, and attempt to connect to -- and be able to recognize your reality.
