The eSSSence of Amy Ferris
Style: Oh, definitely pearls & hippie chic. Very little make-up (as in none - mascara, lipstick) and (secret!) Vichy moisturizer & eye cream (the best I’ve ever used! and cheap, really truly.) Substance: My women friends. They fill me, inspire me, encourage me. Soul: Righting (writing) my life. My fervent wish - deepest prayer - is that all women & girls (and, yes, men & boys) awaken to their greatness and speak their truth. Speak their soul. Not someone else’s version of what that truth should be or looks like. We all have varying degrees of fear and doubt and worry and guilt and shame hidden, tucked inside us, and that if we share it, say it, and yes, honor it - we will forgive ourselves, heal ourselves and forgive and help heal others. We do not need permission to love ourselves fully.
“You can go through life and make new friends every year - every month practically - but there was never any substitute for those friendships of childhood that survive into adult years. Those are the ones in which we are bound to one another with hoops of steel.”—Alexander McCall Smith (via kari-shma)
