coming to ya on this beautiful monday post @purebarrelkn during golden hour with a new addition on my face 😊
this past thursday i had a scary skin cancer biopsy that i’m still recovering from & there’s a 99% chance i’ll be having mohs surgery to remove the spot under my eye. i should be totally fine besides looking a lil cray in the process and while i’m healing. me and bandaids are going to become besties 😂
there’s a lot i could say as i’m still processing it all and the reality that my face is going to be looking different for the next lil while and who really knows what it’ll look like totally healed? i’m hoping for the best, but keeping my expectations realistic 😊
i’d be lying if i didn’t admit to struggling with it all especially since i do hair & makeup for a living and appearance matters.
this has all been eye opening and humbling and i’m more than ready to just be back to “normal” but i’m also realizing how much weight i put on “beauty” and appearing a certain way to others. i’ve got a lot of growing and learning to do and i’m trying to dig deep instead of my default which is to run and hide (kinda hard to do that with a bandaid on your face 😂). more than ever i’m learning that beauty must come from within and that makeup and hair and the way we look can be a fun and amazing way to express ourselves but it should never define who we are. here’s to learning a lot and growing a lot and realizing where my true worth comes from ❤️
