|as you are...right now|
1. feeling or showing pleasure or contentment
2. having a sense of confidence or satisfaction with (a person, arrangement, or situation)
how many times do we negate our happiness because we do not embrace our own unique beauty? here are a few helpful hints from kitty cavalier, a burlesque dancer and instructor who helps women of all shapes, sizes, and ages embrace the beauty within...
1. Don't try to look pretty
Owning your beauty and looking pretty are two very different things. Looking pretty is what we do when we want other people's approval. When we need external validation to convince us of our beauty. Owning your beauty is a much different game. As women, our beauty is eternal, and never leaves us. The last thing you want to do is ask yourself, "do I look beautiful right now?". You are always beautiful. It is not something that needs to be questioned, it is a simple truth.
2. Own your walk
A woman's walk enters the room long before she enters it herself. Each woman's walk is different and unique, but there is one universal rule: go....slow. No matter what. Even if something catches you off guard, resist the urge to speed up as you walk away. A Femme Vitale is in no hurry, she is always right on time.
3. Play with your beauty
Owning your beauty is a spiritual practice. Allow your body to be the canvas of your soul. Play with your purpose in what you wear, your clothes, your hair, your makeup, your body language. This is not so you can "look good to others". It is to allow the Divine to speak through you. There is not another person on Earth who has beauty like you, nor will there ever be. Don't ever waste the beauty that is uniquely yours.
peace & bliss,
