i (bethany) was stopped by several people this last week about what we're doing.
and how it's changing them.
how neat is that!?
they said that they have decided to also do the fast themselves. and i was just amazed.
this is good stuff.
i love women. and i love women empowering other women.
when we drop the comparisons we realize that we can actually stand beside each other, cheer each other on.
and just be a bunch of badasses together.
we all have ugly days. bad hair days.
she has curly hair.
i want straight hair.
she has perfect skin and i hate her.
blah blah blah.
let's just work with what we've been given shall we!?
search the depths of our own souls.
be kind and caring women.
and face the world without make up for a huge slap in the face, fun 40 days. wink!
i adore all these women sharing on this blog.
it takes guts to share each week.
and show a photo of yourself without makeup. it's really tough some weeks.
as you've read/seen.
would you ever do a fast like this?
would you let me share it on my blog?
i'm thinking this will be a thing that i try to do each, i don't know, year or so! and, i don't have to do it each time! ha! so i could just facilitate your fasts on my blog. if you're interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
enjoy reading week four!
and thank you for reading!
This week has been a crazy one. Both babies sick, really sick. Thankfully my parents were able to take him off of work to come and watch them for the week since the babies couldn't go to daycare. No sleep and no make up meant I was feeling more exposed than I had the previous weeks.
I had someone ask me why I was even doing a makeup fast when I didn't wear that much anyway. It made me mad. It's not about the amount applied, but the amount of acceptance I need of myself.
