How Much of the Real You Do People See?

Hello Strong Enough Girls,

Here at SEG, we’re fans of authentic living, so, we want to share a fun quiz we found on Oprah.com to help you reflect on how authentically you are living life. What does it mean to live an authentic life? Merriam Webster defines authentic as “not false or imitation: real, actual; true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character.” Are you ready for the quiz?

No Shame in Black Beauty…presenting Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong’o has captivated the world, through her screen performance in 12 Years a Slave, personal story of perseverance and success, and her inner and outer beauty. This morning, I came across this article in which she shares a powerful message on self-love and real beauty. I recommend it as a good, short read.

“…I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be.” – Lupita

Just Be.
