12 Things Only Women Who Don’t Put on Makeup All the Time Understand

12 Things Only Women Who Don’t Put on Makeup All the Time Understand

We live at a time when the media celebrate mere external beauty and popularity. To keep up with the trends of fashion and constant societal demands, people try to alter and tailor their lives by hiding what is underneath and exposing people to another false image – one that is masked with makeup. But where are your self-confidence, kindness, and goodness? Here are some things people who do not wear makeup understand.

1. They appreciate themselves for who they are

They are realistic and true to themselves. When they are with people, they don’t have to be worried that they are being stared at for looking like a comic heroine. They can relax and enjoy being appreciated for their natural selves.

2. They can save time

It takes time to apply make-up and try to look out of the ordinary. All that time can be spent doing something worthwhile, perhaps being punctual and reading an exciting book.

3. They don’t need to satisfy anyone

They understand that people’s tastes differ. They don’t try to adjust their standards to meet these tastes and look cheap. Rather, they validate their self-worth by looking pleasant and appealing primarily to themselves.

4. They can save money

Let’s be realistic with ourselves. Beauty products cost money, and most of the time there is no guarantee of a return on investment for the amount you put into it. People who do not use makeup can save money and time doing and trying to pursue other worthy endeavors.

5. They become more appealing in other ways

At face value, perhaps, people will be attracted to you for your appearance. But this is never lasting. What is sustaining are such immaculate qualities like kindness, warmth, and affection. These amazing qualities do not need to be beautified by makeup, but by age and by appreciation of not only yourself, but also the world around you.

6. They can build sustaining relationships

People who do not wear makeup can be who they are and command attention. Whoever is attracted to them is concerned about what is underneath their skin and is comfortable with their total appearance. These kinds of relationships are built to last, since they are not built upon a selfish foundation.

7. They have self-confidence

They do appreciate what they have in their bodies and their inner selves. They do not lack or try to hide flaws or inferiority. They have dealt with that already and are confident of what they showcase to the world.

8. They can deal with life’s changes

Whether we like it or not, we will all be victims of time and age. People who don’t wear makeup refuse to run from this fact. Rather, they can deal with life’s changes and instabilities.

9. They define their own happiness

They know what happiness means. They can relate to the simplicity and amazing details of life rather than the sophistication and luxury that makeup offers. They don’t have to cover anything, especially their glad smile.

10. They do not worry about skin damage

They don’t have to fear or worry about the highly allergenic and harmful ingredients that are contained in many makeup products.

11. They do not need to follow the pack

They think independently. They do not need to be victims of what the media propagates, particularly, that you need makeup products to be complete. They are already complete and comfortable with who they are.

12. They attract people to know more about their thoughts

Because they have focused on building other aspects of their lives rather than just their facial appearances, other people are more interested in what they have to offer. They are not stared at, but listened to for their inner power and inner beauty.

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

The Need for Change

Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

    Signs It’s Time to Redefine

    “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

    So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

    In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

    “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

    The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

    When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

      Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

      And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
