Emerging from your cocoon

Hey everyone! For my next post (which is not technically my post) we have a guest blogger who is here to share something very important with all of you. Jackie Clark, a very commited woman fighting against mesothelioma cancer has decided to contact me and the blog in order to spread her views on 'ways to make a woman feel beautiful even with cancer', as she likes to say, with a larger audience.
Here is a very passionate and moving article on this very common issue and ways to prevent cancer from taking over your life. Enjoy!

Emerging from your cocoon
by Jackie Clark

"One of the best things that a person can feel is that they are beautiful, but if you have been dealing with doctors and a diagnosis of breast cancer, mesothelioma cancer, or any of the other health problems related to women, you will find that it may have been some time since you felt really lovely. You may feel embarrassed about wanting to be beautiful, but there is no reason to feel like this at all. The truth of the matter is that beauty allows you to feel powerful and it is time to get that beauty back.

Think of it this way: beauty is a manifestation of good health and good conditions. If you are ready to show the world that you are feeling strong and in control again, consider what taking the time to become strong and beautiful might be like. You will be showing that you are again in good shape, both to the world and to yourself.

Don’t hesitate-- get started today. For example, think about what your options are when it comes the clothes you want to wear. Look at your style and think about the fun of going out and choosing the best clothes that will without a doubt suit you. Do you want a brand new leather jacket or are you a vintage sundress type of woman? What kind of clothes are going to showcase the qualities that you want introduced to the world?

Take a friend with you when you go shopping. You may be feeling a little nervous about how far and how fast you can go; you may find that your body shape has changed or that your tastes have shifted. Having a friend come along on this jaunt with you helps you stay focused and positive. Consider what they like and what their tastes are and ask them to help you find things that suit you as you are. This is a great way to move forward towards the kind of look you want.

What about your hair? Various cancer treatments tend to make your hair fall out or thin for that matter. Don’t let this side effect discourage you. There are so many options that you can choose from. Have fun with wigs, scarves, and hats! Each day try a new look; see what you like best or what looks best on you. If you had dark hair try a red wig. Maybe a Rihanna red or a softer red if you aren’t ready for a big change. Remember a cancer diagnosis shouldn’t define you. Instead define cancer and play with scarves or hats. There are so many options don’t be afraid to try something new. As crazy as this seems you might even take the bold approach and go bald! Bald can be beautiful and make up can help!

Think about getting a full effect by putting on some makeup. Use blush to give you full, healthy cheeks, and use concealer to get of dark circles. The face that you make out of makeup is just as much your face as the one that you were born with. You are spending time and effort to make it, and you are the only one who does it quite like you do.

It’s time to come out of the cocoon and to embrace the person that you are. That person is beautiful, so choose the clothes that complement her tastes and her needs. There are some fantastic clothes out there that are just waiting for you, so make your selections today."

Hi. Love this blog. Would you mind if I showed how to make these string-wrapped bricks on my blog?
I think they are so neat and would be fun to use as decor. I just started to blog yesterday and need some crafts that are simple to start off with.

Thank you.
