Thanks for stopping by to learn more about ‘Truly Herself’. I am Laura Connolly, the Founder and Producer of World Wise Beauty, a blog dedicated to cultivating wellness wisdom for life’s beautiful journey and an event/conference platform Rise of Wise presents.
No matter where you go–there you are! In every culture, we can spot the woman who is authentic, self-assured, and comfortable in her own skin. As the French like to say, we all have a certain “je ne sais quoi”–-a distinctive quality that makes each of us unique and beautiful. Being comfortable in your own skin is about the loving relationship you have with yourself in whatever “packaging” you’re in. In an image-obsessed society focused on perfection, I believe the greatest wisdom we can come to, is to realize there is no greater cosmetic for beauty than being comfortable in our own skin. How do we do this? I believe we need to spend more time nurturing our nature through honoring our own unique sense of well-being.
I grew up with two sick parents, and achieving a healthy lifestyle was always very important to me. Watching my mother navigate a serious auto-immune condition and then later advanced cancer, I came to realize that respecting our “bio-individual nature” was extremely important to living life well. We all have our own biology, chemistry, and genetic profile. To stay well or heal from illness we have to know ourselves well. Health and wellness is not about the latest fad diet or exercise regimen that everyone is doing. Living life well is about cultivating wellness wisdom for our unique nature. Developing a healthy mindset, lifestyle, and loving relationship with ourselves is the path and foundation for happiness, wellness and longevity. To be comfortable in your own skin is an inner-knowing that no-one can live your life as well as you. It is your personal journey and it can be a beautiful one when you nurture, honor and care for yourself.
No matter where you are on your journey, I promise you will find meaningful, worthwhile inspiration, wisdom, and tools to help you cultivate wellness wisdom at WWB. I can promise this because I’m on the journey with you and have a passion for seeking and sharing wisdom. My goal is to let this website be a valuable resource, conduit and hub for women who strive to be comfortable in their own skin and love the beautiful on-going journey of becoming the best version of themselves. We are all one of a kind and like beautiful flowers in a garden, we can bloom, grow, and flourish with every season when we take time to nurture our nature.
Now for the really important question. What makes us wise? I believe it is experiencing life, reflecting on what we have learned, and coming to a humble understanding that perhaps every day we are still learning. “Ancora Imparo!”
