Days of Beauty: Your Beauty Style
One thing about beauty is that it isn't necessarily the same for each of us. I will see and/or experience something and think it is pure beauty because it speaks to a deep place in me. You may see, hear or experience the same thing and not have it hit you the same way.
I think folded stacks of laundry are beauty! You may think it looks cluttery. But, that's the thing about beauty, it has its own voice of sorts that speaks to us and moves us in different ways. It is personal, unique and personalized.
Am I making sense here? It's like this - when I serve tacos at my house, I know exactly what to have on hand to fix that. But, what I serve with tacos may not be exactly the same ingredients as what you would serve in your home. So, when I say we're having tacos for dinner - my family knows exactly what to expect and they love it because it is what we have every time I say tacos. Same at your house, most likely.
Isn't beauty kind of like that? We have taco expectations and our own fashion sense. I'll call this our beauty-style. My beauty style is homey, cozy, natural and creative. Your beauty style might be different - we both still call it beauty because it is truly beauty to each of us in its own ways.
We've all heard the saying, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," right? That's exactly what I'm getting at here. And, I love that beauty fits each of us because we see it through our own eyes and our own beauty style. A lens, if you will, that fits us.
What says beauty to you?
