What is Pretty Is? My momma always told me "pretty is as pretty does." Every. Day. I mean it, every day of my teenage years she told me this before I left for basketball practice. And at first and because I was a typical teenager, I rolled my eyes and went on about my merry, little teenager life. But as I grew older, as I grew into a woman, a wife, a mother, a friend, it has come to mean so much to me. It has become my life's motto, and now, my life's work.
See Pretty Is As Pretty Does is so much more than a phrase. It means that being pretty on the outside means nothing if you aren't pretty on the inside. It means being pretty is so much more than beautiful lipstick, perfect curls, flawless skin. It means so much more than having gorgeous legs, the perfect butt, perky boobs. It is so much more than having all of your shit together, than creating the ideal family, than having the perfect job.
I believe that "Pretty Is As Pretty Does" means being confident. I definitely don't have all my shit together. Ask my kids. But I can fake it til I make it, and that's what I do a lot of the time. I questions myself about everything - "am I too fat, am I too distracted, am I too lazy, do I really have what it takes to run this business and make money?" Fuck. I have no idea, but I will fake it til I make it. I am CONFIDENT about that. I am confident that if I believe in myself, and give myself the opportunity to fail AND to win, that I can at least answer those questions. And that's all that matters.
So... long story short, I have changed the name of my business to reflect on the outside what I am feeling on the inside, and to help you find what Pretty Is means to you. Each month I will get personal with you about my struggles as a woman and I am asking that you get personal with me, too. Tell me what you are struggling with - let's fix that shit together.
I have started Woman Power Wednesdays in the VIP group. (If you aren't part of that, why the hell not? Click HERE.) We will together proclaim what we are! This week, I AM SCARED! I hope you guys like my new ideas!
