A Moment of Reflection…

I look at this photo and see someone who is continuing to grow and evolve. As I was writing some affirmations this morning, I thought about some of the things I’ve dealt with and recall always being someone who was afraid to be happy.  Facing rejection, depression, grief, and so many other things, I was afraid of grabbing hold to joy and happiness only for the bottom to drop once again.  As I’m learning to live in the present and enjoy life, I’m seeing the wonderful things that life has to offer. 

Sometimes we’re so busy looking for what’s next, we don’t even realize the burdens we left behind and growth that has taken place. The growth I’ve experienced is serving as fuel for me to continue pushing. Pushing towards greater self-love, self-compassion, and blissful moments.

If you find yourself stuck and afraid to move forward, afraid of taking chances that provide you with the happiness that you deserve, remember that no one else can do it for you. Remember that we’re only given one life. Allow your past and present to serve as fuel to drive you forward into becoming the best YOU that you desire to be. Not for anyone else, but yourself. Whatever life may be throwing at you in this moment, still know that loving and caring for yourself is key. So, do what is necessary for you in order to experience all the best that life has for you.

Pandemic Self-Care Products

This pandemic has left so many of us restless and in need of a bit of TLC. Well, let me introduce you to some products.

1. Anyone say Foot Massager??!!

This device is a stress reliever, providing over 44 rotation nodes, designed to assist with pain, blood circulation and sleep. Enjoy this while watching a movie, reading a book, or while even working from home.

2. Clear Skin Anyone?

Now, this is one of my FAVORITE self-care products. Whether you haven’t been to an esthetician in a while or you need an at-home treatment in between appointments, this one is for you. As someone that has oily skin and large pores, it helps to unclog my pores and eliminate blackheads. It even comes with a kit for extractions.

3. Home Spa Experience

After a stressful day, a hot bath with a good book or some music is a great way to wrap up my day. This bathroom caddy AND pillow allows you to bring your favorite items into the tub with you (I.e. book, ipad, wine, etc). The fully body pillow provides great support to your neck and back. This can be a great self-care present for yourself or a loved one.

Imperfect Journey. Beautiful Discovery

The path to embracing and accepting myself has been challenging, but one that I would not change.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Questioning everything about myself: my looks, my value, my purpose, I was forcing myself to live by a set of unrealistic standards in order to compensate for what I felt I lacked or didn’t have. I pushed myself to obtain certain things, hoping that I could eventually create this ‘perfect’ life for myself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, perfection is just an illusion and life is full of uncertainties, but, even in those uncertainties come beautiful moments. Who would’ve thunk it? lol ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Realizing that I can’t control the outcome to circumstances (I still have some issues with that. Judge ya’ mama. LOL), I’m slowly learning to let go and I’m finally enjoying the process of learning who I am.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I’m still growing and learning new things, I hope that you can partake in this self-care/self-love journey with me. It’s not for the faint at heart, but if you don’t learn how to take care of yourself and truly love yourself, then you’re robbing yourself of so much!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, here’s to an Imperfect Journey. Beautiful Discovery.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m looking forward to continuing to heal, grow and bloom with you all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How it All Started

Imperfectly Beautiful was birthed out of my own struggles of dealing with perfectionism, low self-worth, and co-dependency. From being highly self-critical, feeling the need to control situations in order to soothe my own anxiety, carrying about everyone’s needs before my own, I got to a point where I realized I needed to begin taking care of me. I’m now on a life long journey of learning to care for me first, and i STILL have a lot of work to do. I’ve always had this perception of what my path in life should look like, constantly ‘checking the boxes’ as an indication that ‘I’ve made it.’ But life twists/turns and highs/lows have led me to understand that this journey is imperfect. While it’s been imperfect, I’ve seen the beauty in my growth and me stretching and developing in ways I’d never thought would take place.

This business is to encourage women that look like me. We often carry the weight of the world on their shoulders, carrying for everyone else first and worrying about themselves last..or even at all. I wanted to create a business and provide content, products, and resources to help walk you through your own unique, imperfect, beautiful journey of self-care.

So, here’s to an Imperfect Journey. Beautiful Discovery

I look forward to connecting and growing with you all.
