We admire other women and celebrities. We see their beautiful traits (both inner and outer), but we rarely see our own.
Perhaps in “growing up”, we learned to hide our beautiful spirits because it wasn't not appropriate to stand out.
We were not encouraged to be different, individualistic, or independent.
By doubting our worth, we become determined to conceal that which makes us beautiful for fear of becoming vulnerable.
If we ever felt beautiful or heard someone describe us as such, we may feel as Candace Bergen once said:
“It’s rather frightening and threatening to have others ascribe such importance to something you know you’re just renting for a while.”
Is beauty something temporary? I don't think so!
Yes, our bodies age, our hair grays, our bellies expand, wrinkles eventually set in, and we become old…but not un-beautiful
Beauty is like a gift package to me. This package includes our intelligence, know how, taste, behavior, choices in life.
It really comes mostly from a life well-lived and a well-nourished soul. Our beauty, then stands to grow rather than diminish as we age and become more in tune with our inner spirit.
Having glamour portraits taken is a great way to capture one's true beauty and preserve it for decades, and for future generations.
Of course, in this internet age, your images are your digital identity and personal brand.
