Redefining Beauty

Written by Corinna Wood, Posted in Corinna's Corner, Self Love

Flowers Do Not Diminish One Another's Beauty

woman with flowersWhat makes a meadow full of spring wildflowers so captivating and beautiful? Not the appearance of one, but the abundance of many flowers with different colors, shapes, fragrances, sizes, and stages of development.

The beauty of one flower--say a curvy, purple violet, does not diminish the beauty of another--perhaps a bright, golden sunburst of a dandelion

 

If you appreciate my beauty, or intelligence, that need not diminish yours! Thick or thin; black or white; busty or hippy or leggy, we are each our own unique, lovely flower.  Competition between women is a construct of patriarchal culture which keeps us separated from one another.

Women of all shapes, sizes, colors, and flavors each have our unique expressions of beauty and style to share with the world and one another.  When we look at each other in this way, we discover that we are all reflections of the divine!
