Beauty Comes From
The Heart And Spirit
I always wanted to shave my head but lacked the courage.
After going through a difficult time in my life in many different ways I decided that it was my time to live my life have a fresh start and be free.
Free of what other people wants me to do with my own life, freedom of what some assume beauty is.
More importantly, I discovered that the way we look outside is not always a reflection of self-love and acceptance or who we really are.
Worrying about the hair, the nails, the fashion, the make up says that we are not okay with who we are.
It says that we are not good enough in our own eyes if we don't do all this things and buy all this products for our entire life.
What about those women that have cancer and are bold not because they want but because they have no choice since their hair is falling off?
Are they less? Are they not beautiful anymore? Are not they valuable any more? Aren't they sexy anymore? Of course they are !
Women we have the power of choice. If we choose to lift up our eyes and hearts to the beauty of life around us we will discover that we are part of nature, part of beauty.
We are women and we are valuable and lovable! I went to shave my head in a local Barber shop in Coronado, California USA.
The owner asked me what I wanted I told him. He said: Are you sure? Do you want your head like this, pointing out a bald old gentleman on the barber seat, Yes I said.
He waited a few minutes, then he called a lady from the back. He said to her: " She wants to be bald" Do you really ? she asked me. Yes, I repeated myself, amused.
Then the owner said in loud voice so everyone in the shop heard : " She wants to be bald", " Everybody heard that? Right?" Everybody said" "yes".
WE all laughed. Then I got on the seat and the lady shaved my hair. When she had left about 1/2 inch of hair, she asked again: " All shaved?"
Yes, I said triumphantly and giggling.
