I am excited to introduce the next post in the #YourBeautifulSeries, these amazing women sharing with us, their journeys and discovery of their own Beauty. Please read, share and comment. Tandy said I do to her love, this past weekend, and we would like to wish the happy couple an amazing fulfilling life together.
Living a life of purpose by Tandy Williams
Over the years, I have found that my definition of what I consider to be beautiful has changed. When I was younger I thought it was a yellow-boned beautiful face with a beautiful body and that a beautiful personality was just the cherry on that cake. Then it became about the dark mysterious beauty. What I considered beautiful was based on what I was told was beautiful.
Learning with Age
Somehow as I got older though I realized that I would find myself drawn to confidence. A confident woman would make me want to be her friend to find out what secrets she knows to life that I didn’t know. I would want her as a friend and a mentor. Eventually, over the years, I found out that a lot of these confident women were just faking it in the hope of one day making it and that they were just as insecure as I was or possibly even worse off.
Lessons Learnt about beauty
Now I believe that beauty is to be a soul that loves themselves enough to follow their own unique path. It’s not a look or a behavior but a way of being. When someone insists on following their own unique path that’s 100% aligned to who they really are, they become of service to the rest of us as they inspire and guide and I think that is really HOT! And this is not just confined to human beings. Any living thing/being that is living its purpose at 100% without being bothered by others is beautiful. Whether it’s a flower, a bird or a human being of any sex. Their connection to GOD and all that is beautiful.
We have a duty to connect to that light and allow that beauty to shine through us in order to inspire others to also live a beautiful life of purpose. I imagine a beautiful world where no one conforms to any standards laid down by the beauty industry or society as a whole and everyone gets to be the unique weirdos that they were born to be. It all stems from self-love. We need to love ourselves enough to believe that in our purest state of ourselves….we are beautiful.
I recently lost a large amount of weight, people assume it’s because I wanted to be skinny because that’s what society tells us we want. Personally, I wanted to live up to my full potential; not just spiritually, intellectually or emotionally but physically too. I was never going to be in my optimal state if I weighed 112kgs. So I started to make some changes. What drove me was a distinction I had created for myself “I am alive, active and connected to my body.” Now nothing holds me back. God’s light shines through me and I am beautiful inside and out. I glow and sparkle because I am living my own unique life and I attract others that are doing the same.
“Your beauty is timeless. Your light is endless. Believe this, sweet one, and shine from the inside out! With love, your Angels.”
