Will you show me yours??
Why do we hide our broken bits?
Why not celebrate them and actually alter our perception around them? And why the hell do we give ourselves such a hard time for what we see as our imperfections, or our faults? These are the parts of ourselves that make us real life WARRIORS. Never has there been a time in history where life was perfect, so why do we compare ourselves and our present moment to this false ‘shiny and perfect’ reality? Really… it is a fantasy, NOT a reality and one that makes us all feel pretty shitty when we are stuck there. You with me?
In the crazy world of social media (which was all love and hate simultaneously), there is a storm brewing. No longer do we want to aim to show up as one of our false perceptions of who we think we are, but rather let’s create a movement to be more REAL. God damn it, how did we get so lost and forget how beautiful we are, just as we are? Ladies, put your feet on the ground and breathe. And in that moment of stillness, realise that you are not perfect and you are not meant to be. Instead you are perfectly imperfect, so can we let go of the bullshit that only leads to unhappiness already? YES!
After realising how many faces we all put on, dependant on the situation – Franny and I recently vowed that we wanted to celebrate the real. And more often. The raw. The messy. The imperfect. The vulnerabilities. And just be us. And we hope that you will want to join in. When we show up as open and vulnerable we relinquish the idea of perfection that often unconsciously creates isolation and feelings of ‘I am not good enough’ within our fellow feminines.
