Responsible. Beautiful. Driven. These are all words I've heard others use to describe me and many other of my first-born, type A personality friends.
...But there's also this other side of me- she's playful, mischievous, she cries all morning without knowing exactly why, she’s in a constant battle between her perfectionist and the wild dreamer who never knows what the f*!# she wants... she’s dark and moody, she wants to be seen and acknowledged and embraced- while at the same time wanting space and solitude and freedom. She’s a beautiful contradiction- and she’s just as much a part of me as the pink sparkly one I tend to show on my Instagram feed...
Why do we only let our 'pretty' sides out for the world to see? The world needs to see all the sides of you- the 'good' and the 'bad', and everything in between. You are so beautiful because you're YOU, not because you wear make-up, always say the right thing, and seem to have your life together.
Is there a side of you that's hiding? What does she want to say?! This shirt said it all for me today: WELL BEHAVED WOMEN RARELY MAKE HISTORY. So let's stop blending, stop behaving, and start being the fullest expression of ourselves- whatever that may be!
