A Tiger’s Heart Wrapped In A Woman’s Hide

By Katelin J. Wright, President of Be Non Human

Playa Vista, CA. – Every once in a great while someone and/or something crosses your path & impacts your life inadvertently. This week I had the pleasure of stumbling upon Jenica’s beautiful & courageous triumph. I was so moved by her raw transparency that I couldn’t help but send her a private message via FB requesting her permission to share her story. Thankfully, she was beyond gracious & allowed me (a perfect stranger) the honor of highlighting her story in this weeks blog.   Continue reading A Tiger’s Heart Wrapped In A Woman’s Hide

TRUE BEAUTY

By Katelin J. Wright, President of Be Non Human

Playa Vista, CA. – 99% of women HATE their bodies. We’re too fat, too thin, too dark, under-eye circles, wrinkles, fat ankles, funky toes, weird nose, bad teeth, ect., ect., ect…

We live in a society that has created an extremely deceitful illusion of what “PERFECTION/TRUE BEAUTY” is. According to society, in order to “be someone” you have to be “Beautiful”. Meaning, unless you have long blonde hair, mesmerizing violet blue eyes, double D firm breasts, a 32’ waistline, 36’ hips, voluptuously pouty lips, a small upturned nose, & a flawless sun-kissed complexion you’re neither “perfect” nor “beautiful”. This extremely skewed illusion has created an inferno of self-hatred.

In my opinion, TRUE BEAUTY is defined by what lies in the depths of one’s heart. Moreover, beauty is the essence of YOU. You are an original, a one and only, a creation of God. There is absolutely no one else in the world like you. When you focus on being your truest & most authentic self, there is absolutely NO competition.
