What a great way to start the week. I checked my email this morning, and saw this!
I know because I've been in a few pageants that people naturally assume that I always thought of myself as being "beautiful". I can now say confidently as a woman in my 30s, I finally know what that word means. It's not just about physical beauty, but it's also about celebrating your strength, triumphs and failures. It's about being the best you regardless of what anyone else thinks.
I'm so happy that I am on a path of self-love. I finally value my worth and removed people and situations that were negative and not worth my time. That's why I stress not only health, but wellness. Wellness to me means making a choice, a decision to take responsibility for the quality of your life. It's being able to function at the best levels of your life - regardless of any physical disabilities you may have. Wellness is not just about physical health, but mental and social health too.
Celebrate your inner beauty by getting your picture up in Times Square! You have to act fast because I believe it ends on August 1st. Here is the link if you're interested.
