Enjoying Unscripted Beauty in Every Day Life
“I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” #AVEENO #UnScriptedBeauty
When you are a parent to either real children or fur babies, I feel like that is when I really started to understand life. When I was younger, it was all about me, and my now husband. Where would we go, what would we do, and where would we eat. The world revolved around us, and it wasn’t until I was 21 that I discovered there is just so much unscripted beauty in this world.
Everywhere I look whether it be in my yard, garden, or while my children play; I now have a better appreciation and understanding for life, and the rich, raw, beauty it encompasses in EVERY aspect.This past weekend, I took my camera into my yard to take some wildlife pictures, as my kids played and ran around. I literally took time to stop and smell the flowers and observe nature hard a work.
Nature is exploding with unscripted beauty, but then again so are my kids. Just the other day my 5 year old graduated Kindergarten, and my 8 year old passed to 3rd grade. They both looked so darn cute with her new dresses, shoes, and hair styles. The smile that they each possessed as they walked up to get their awards/diploma melted my heart.
I didn’t force them to smile, bribe them, or take a million photo to find the right one. I snapped one picture as they sat on the church stairs and it was just perfect. It was an unscripted beauty moment that we will all treasure forever….the first of hopefully many more accomplishments and achievements for them each.
Did you know a recent AVEENO survey found most parents say that “unscripted” moments are more beautiful than those that are perfectly planned. At the end of the day, it’s sharing candid, unscripted moments that build authentic relationships. As a mom to three, I couldn’t agree more! I find observing my kids playing or spending time together is just so beautiful and candid.
