This is a graphic image that I created with makeup and NO ONE was harmed. The truth is however, that many of our children, indeed many of US are walking around either looking OR feeling like this daily! It makes me SO SAD!!
Makeup is such a powerful tool. I can barely even look at this image!
In turn, cosmetics can hide a lot of things but they CANNOT conceal our internal pain. Makeup cannot conceal the ugliness within people that makes them want to hurt others.
Some pains, cannot be erased. I believe that sticks and stones may break our bones but WORDS will crush our spirits.
How can we, as adults, change the way to treat others? How can we become more compassionate? More loving? More FEELING?
Can we show our children, can we model for them what it means to be a person of kindness? Our kids are watching us!
How often do our posts and comments on social media, show our children that we are sometimes NO BETTER than the bully at school., pushing around the little guy?
My hope for today is that we can all choose to shine a light on this broken world. That we will speak words of positivity and love into the hearts of everyone who is connected to us!
One act of kindness, ONE smile, ONE message to a hurting person can change the world for them! Be the one that takes the hand of the drowning man and pulls him to shore!
LOVE and PEACE to all today!!!
It has been a WHILE since I blogged and I have to tell you, these wacky makeup trends are getting to be TOO MUCH!! Right?!
BUT...let's remember that just because someone posted an image on Instagram that went viral, does NOT mean that you should try this at home! Or at the very least, if you DO decide to try it...STAY HOME!! :D
Let's get real for a sec...
I was able to take the squiggle brow and lip trend and work it to my own creative advantage...and even contributed my own take on the trend. I am an artist and I respect creativity but NOSE HAIR EXTENSIONS?? No. Just NO!!
And, what if you accidentally inhale a chunk of hair??
Doesn't it make your wheels turn guys? Like, what could I come up with that would go THIS viral?? I feel like we are ALL doing this now. Just sitting in front of our cosmetics, taking deep breathes and trying to harness our inner Instagoddesses!
On the upside, I was going to trim my nose hairs today and I guess I don't need to anymore! :D
