This week’s Powerful Beauty spotlight guest is Gina Rafkind. Gina is the brains behind the wonderous website Veda Sun *and* she’s an aromatherapy guru to boot! Her aromatherapy knowledge shines brightly in the creation of her face and body care products. I can’t wait to try some of her products out!!
Powerful Beauty ~ to embrace our bodies as we age and not to defy our age. We need to embrace and accept the changes our bodies go through. It does not mean we give up – it means we become aware that change happens. With this new awareness, we can then take care of our bodies with gratitude and mindfulness, knowing that our true beauty comes from within. We nurture ourselves in a healthy way and not in an attached way such as longing for the way we once looked. But now we embrace every stage, and moment, of life and find joy in the fact that we are maturing; developing into rich, ripe and wisdom filled beings! With this attitude and flow, your inner radiance will shine through displaying your Powerful Beauty.
Today I turned 32. Yep. It’s Bionic’s birthday. To be honest, I’ve always lived by Gina’s description above… 30 didn’t bother me, and 32 doesn’t either. I enjoy my changes- watching my curves develop in my twenties, spotting those first teensy gray hairs, and the little crinkles by my eyes that show I’m happy in life. I’m even proud of my scars- shows my toughness (hee!).
I try to stress this outlook to my family. There’s WAY too much to ponder, pontificate, love and laugh at in life to spend precious time worrying about age. I guess it comes down to the fact that life’s too short. Trite, yes. But true.
What do *you* think of Gina’s version of Powerful Beauty?
