Topic: Beauty Is In ________
Friday March 05, 2010
The word beauty is defined in a dictionary as: the inherent quality in an object of pleasing the eye, ear, or mind; a particular grace or excellence; a fine specimen. Instead of filling in with “the eye of the beholder,” I would say, “your hands” (meaning, you have the power and the right to make it happen). How so? A dear woman, who I call my friend, Tonya Zavasta, totally changed her lifestyle by eating raw vegan food and doing hot yoga (Bikram yoga). She reversed aging and also allowed herself to become beautiful. Please check out her website, www.beautifulonraw.com and check out her before and after photos, as well as, of other people who have become ‘living beauties.’ She has written numerous books, sells exceptional natural beauty products (that she uses herself) and travels the world teaching women (and men) to find their way to the beauty they all have within ourselves and most importantly by way of our lifestyle choices. You need to take charge! No one can rely on others to make their lives the way they want to be. You can get Botox, cellulite removal, plastic surgery, take pills, potions, supplements, etc but will you be able to achieve the truly inherent beauty that comes from the inside out. I would so NO! When you view before and after pictures of those who used natural means to give them the health and the look of a supermodel, you say, “I want that!” Yes! You can have every part of it, as long as you are willing to make the effort and changes that are necessary. I have said this before, and I will say it again; take the first step (whatever that is for you) and go slowly and gradually so that you do not give up on it after a short time. From my own personal example, I’ve been a vegan for 20 years (now raw, as well) and I am still so passionate about it (even more so because I what to share the wealth of knowledge I have with others and reach out to the world with this information)! I am also never bored with the food I eat and I feel and know that it is important to eat a variety of foods and not the same things every day (that is definitely one of the reasons I know that people are more likely to stop eating a certain way because it gets boring to eat the same, lets say, 3 things, day in day out).
