Beautiful, Courageous You

Beauty & Courage are written on our hearts…

Many people have asked why I chose a crumpled piece of paper as my design for Beautiful, Courageous You…
the crumpled note being pinned to the wall represents a return to believing the truth about yourself, and consequently a return to happiness. Crumpling of the note is symbolic of what we do with our self belief as life wears us down. As atoddler the words of beauty and courage are written on our hearts we believe we are the centre of the universe, our beauty is affirmed by doting adults and we are fearless (except the odd monster under the bed tends to be a bit scary). My little 2 year old little girl believes without doubt she is pretty and perfect in every way, no fear of being too fat or too thin, no fear of what other people think etc… she is free to be a beautiful, courageous little girl. Over the years what we believe about ourselves, becomes distorted and fashioned by the influences around us, and this is when we ‘crumple the note’, so to speak, and throw it in the waste paper basket. We gradually lose our 2yo perspective of how amazing, “fearfully and wonderfully made” we truly are.
