This morning we have a guest post from Jackie of the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance.
Fashion to the Front!
For many women, dealing with a serious illness like mesothelioma cancer or breast cancer means doing the rounds of treatment, of being in and out of doctor’s offices and of endless worry and fretting. Many women find their real strength during battles like this one, and if you are someone who has started to lose sight of the end of the battle, there are some important tools that you need to take up. Beauty and fashion are things that can shore you up when you are down, and if you are looking for sources of inspiration, see what they can do for you!
First, remember that you are beautiful. No matter how much treatment takes out of you, or how tired you are, you are beautiful just by dint of being yourself. There will never be another person like you, and there will never be something like you again. You are beautiful simply because of your own unique qualities. If you are invested in making sure that other people see that beauty, however, you will find that you need to dress the part! No one and nothing will ever take your natural beauty away from you, but if you want to be fashionable, that is another story.
Remember that fashion is another thing that is all about you. Fashion gives you a tool for setting yourself apart from the rest of the herd, and if you want to show off what a creative mind you have, show it off through fashion. Take a moment and consider what your options are for this type of enterprise. What kind of fashion maven are you? For some people, fashion means bright patterns, gorgeous fabrics and a free-flowing style. For other people, fashion is all about the stark lines and the simple colors. When you want to be truly fashionable, you need to find a style that truly suits you, and that will allow you to show off how you look. Take a moment to consider what your prime attributes are going to be and to figure out how to express yourself.
Start by looking at fashion and seeing what you like and don’t like. Magazines try to tell you that there is only one fashion ideal at any given time. The truth of the matter is that there are many, many ways that women can be fashionable. While your clothing is not going to be everyone’s favorite, the only thing that matters is that it should be your favorite. While you may love the up to the minute styles and fashions, you might also prefer to wear a more “vintage” look. Why not look into international styles to find out what is really you? Take a moment to think about how you can move forward towards a gorgeous you!
It is time for you to find the real beauty that rests inside you, no matter what kind of effect you want to create. This is something that is sure to shore up your spirits and to keep you riding high!
Kindness is the best accessory,
