You are Beautiful: Cindy R.

You are Beautiful: Cindy R.

Everyone has their own story to tell, and Cindy sure has a unique one.

From being raised by people who didn’t show they loved her all that much, to being an inspiration to all, Cindy has truly grown and prospered in a fabulous way. 

If you’re looking for a fellow lady to inspire confidence in you and raise you up to be the best version of yourself that you can be, you’ll find it here with Cindy.

Keep reading on to take a look at the life she lived and the person she’s become.

Maggie: I like to get into knowing my photography clients right away! If you don’t mind me asking, can you share with us a bit about your life experiences? You know, tell us all about you and what made you the incredible woman you are today.

Cindy: No, not at all! Of course I’m willing to share. 

Unfortunately, it took a bit for me to accept my unique beauty, just the way I was and am. I had a lot of pain growing up from my father walking out on me. Then, between the ages of 7 and 12, I was molested by the people that were supposed to protect me. Not by strangers. 

It was around that point that I had to make a choice, a choice to either master my pain and use it to help me accomplish my goals, or, allow the paint to master me and continue to tie me down. 

I thankfully chose to use the pain to live and be the best version of myself for myself and for my children. Regardless of what I went through, I still believed that the choice was mine and that I chose correctly. 

M: Thank you for sharing such deep memories, Cindy. You have incredible bravery and courage. 

I believe that bravery and courage are two non-physical features that us women gain over time. Could you tell me about your favorite non-physical feature? What personality trait do you have that you truly admire?

C: I am so proud of my passions to empower everyone across all paths. I want to make every woman understand and know just how beautiful, unique, and special they are! I love to bring true smiles out and I admire that personality trait about myself.

M: With everything you’ve been through and with the way you choose to live your life – making others understand how amazing they are – you must have many more words of wisdom to share with the world. Could you please share some advice to those women out there that struggle to see their own beauty?

C: Absolutely. I think we are not here on this planet for everyone to like us, love us, or understand us. We are here to live, love, and laugh, and shine, and understand that we will only be remembered for two things once we are gone.

One, the problems we caused and two, the problems we solved. 

No one is a mistake, we are all masterpieces! No one will ever be able to do what you can do because we are all unique in our own ways. Love yourself and just watch everyone love you right back!

M: Such great advice, I can’t get enough! How did you get to this point? What made you start seeing, understanding, and proclaiming such wise words?

C: I think I’ve learned to be complete in myself in order to see, understand, and proclaim the things I do. Whatever people do or whatever people don’t do technically has nothing to do with me. It’s all on them. 

This allows me to live, love, and laugh in total confidence. This allows me to love myself first. 

Now, I’m able to love others truly and genuinely. This empowers me to be free from being concerned with other people’s opinions. 

M: Music to my ears. I love to hear the confidence. I love to see you spreading confidence to other women. 

Realistically, all I can ask at this point is what else would you like to say? I’m just genuinely appreciating this conversation and would like to know if anything else is coming to your mind right now, while we’re simply speaking. If so, please don’t hold back.

C: I just want to say we only live once! Time goes by so fast. We should never miss our opportunities to love ourselves and to be free in who we truly are. Your mistakes and your bad choices do not define you! It’s never too late to see you for who you are, and that’s a masterpiece!

Ladies, I like that she calls us all masterpieces. Don’t you? The confidence that Cindy inspires is unreal and unmatched. I quite literally could not get enough.

I say we go out today, tomorrow, and the day after that and try to be more like Cindy. Let’s give it all we got to inspire all the ladies around us and make them feel like it’s never too late to see them for who they are! I think being a part of a movement like this will spread positivity further than we would think. So, let’s stop wasting time and get to it!
