“I forgive you because…” 

We’ve all felt the pain of being completely wronged before. Whether it was by a partner, a friend, a family member or even an associate. The sting was all the same. It pierced us with its sharp lies and left us to suffer. Continue reading “I forgive you because…”

What makes a woman beautiful to you?

I think all women are beautiful in their own way, even if they don’t know it. But I believe that once a woman truly accepts her body as it is and carries about herself confidently, she immediately becomes even more beautiful. I once had a friend tell me that once you firmly believe that you are beautiful, everyone will think so too. I believe confidence has the ability to completely outshine any flaws, whether it be stretch marks or acne. Continue reading My Body, My Way: Meet Shazarah

What makes a woman beautiful to you?

  • What makes a woman beautiful to you?

 A lot of women feel the need to meet the superficial standards society has set out for us to be considered beautiful. I don’t agree with that at all. A beautiful woman is a woman who is comfortable in her own skin, despite what society thinks. A woman who is not afraid to show her stretch marks and birth scars because to me those things are battle wounds. A woman battled through weight lost and gain to get those stretch marks. A woman gave birth to another human being to have that scar, so why not embrace it? It’s apart of life and it’s apart of you. Any woman who can embrace her flaws and love her imperfections is a beautiful woman to me.

You’ve been there before.

Waiting patiently for an e-mail or phone call from perspective employers— Only to get a generic “We regret to inform you…” response back. Or constantly checking your text messages to see if the guy you’ve been interested in for some time has replied, but he hasn’t and its been a week since your date.
