As I finished my much needed relaxing bath tonight I went ahead and took off my makeup with these delicious smelling face wipes I purchased for super cheap at Ross. I couldn’t help but look in the mirror and ask myself if I was happy with who I was, who I am becoming, and who I want to be.
Do you ever ask yourself those questions? I mean we wear all this make up to make ourselves look beautiful and to hide all our imperfections, but what about the inside? What does that look like? Our heart? Am I genuine to others? To myself? Do I treat people right? Do I use people? Do I preach what I say?
Questions like these are ones I ask myself daily and although I might seem like I have it all together, most of the time I am just a hot mess pretending to make it through the day because life is a struggle and we do the best we can.
Tomorrow something happens to me and I want to be known as the girl that never gave up. The girl who fought hard for what she believed in and when she fell down 100 times she got back up a million. The girl who loved everyone and treated everyone with respect and kindness. The mother that did everything she had to do to make her daughter happy and to give her the best life possible, but the mother that taught her daughter to never settle for less, to always fight for her happiness, and to never take shit from a man or anyone.
At this very moment I can say that I am working hard every single day to be better and to do better. I wear make up to look beautiful for myself, but I also want the world to know that I too am beautiful without it and its okay to have imperfections. No one is perfect, but only you can work towards that life you want to live and the impact you want to make on others.
So tonight sit down, take off that mask we wear to hide our imperfections, and write down the things that scare you, the things you want to accomplish, the things you preach, and the impact you want to leave behind.
If you take that mask off right now, will you be happy with who you see?
