As some of you may know this Blog was originally created 2 years ago by myself Thalea but as a joined platform for myself and my sister Courteney to share things we feel we want share with the world.It may be read by just one person near or far but our main aim is to inspire all those around us. It may be through a travel diary experience, life’s weird and wacky way of teaching us valuable lessons or through fashion and photography anything we really feel passionate about.
We just 2 ordinary girls trying to do extra ordinary things.
Courteney sent me this beautiful piece she wrote and I am so excited to share it with all of you hope you enjoy it!
“Into the Depths of My Soul
One thing I have come to know is that looks are not everything. But rather it’s about the beauty that shines out you from within.
I no longer want to be the girl you know from Instagram or a random facebook friend. There is more to me than what you see or the assumptions you make about me.
I want you to see my soul when you look at me, see past my face, race and just see me for me.
Our generation has become a bunch of pretenders who are Consumed by likes and followers and selfies emphasis on the “self”
More like selfish… What happened to self-worth & self-respect?
Life is short and I know you have heard it all before. But I for one know that life can be long too and there is so much you could do. So many people you could have spoken to when you were looking down at your Phone or an awkward smile you could have given to someone that surely brightened up their day.
I am starting with my inside then working my way out. I am choosing to focus on my soul to improve what really counts.
Do you have WIFI? I bet that sounds familiar but what I’m trying to say is
God made you just the way you are. Why conform and settle to be part of the norm.
I refuse to compete against anyone I am me & you are you for a reason! I was fearfully and wonderfully made and I aim to stay grounded & never be swayed.
Imagine everyone loved everyone the same way God loves you… Let that sink in I bet you wish it was true.
My soul is what goes to heaven not the physical features I may have
So why worry about the outside when your inside is all you truly have.
My soul is lined with the message of Proverbs 30:31- “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is vain; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”
It’s just a start Its far from the end for I agree to end the great pretend.
Peace love and Happiness
