(...) My boyfriends somehow got frightened by my look and the relationships did not last.
It was only when I personally decided that I was beautiful, that I stopped wearing the wigs. For many years I wore scarves. Going bald was still too much to handle.
It was a funny thing. When I was a teenager I was considered one of these stunning beach babe models with the big boobs and the super long thick blond hair with blue eyes etc etc..People looked and I got attention when I was young. I actually did not like it very much and wanted to just be able to blend in.
Now that I am bald, I somehow still get attention! Haha...and I still do not blend in!
Anyway, as the years passed, I got married to this amazing man, who loves ME for who I am!And me being bald or having hair makes no difference to him. He loves ME! This definitely boosted my self-confidence.
Another thing that really boosted my morale and ability to accept myself for being so different than the norm., was the attitude of my daughter; Iwana (who happens to also be my photographer on this shoot). She ALWAYS stood up for me, when people made fun of me and she always has told me that I am beautiful. This really warmed my heart and made me look at myself much more positive.
My husband and Iwana have always told me that I look amazing and cute and that I am beautiful just as I am. I realised that when I feel at ease about my body, then my attention is no longer on my body and my attention goes outwards to all the beauty in the world around me and the people and the living things in it and the things we do with one another. I am now at ease with being bald. I am that beauty within! I am unique. I truly feel that caring to make this world a more beautiful place, has at the same time, made me more beautiful too, by being able to put my attention off of myself and onto helping others.
I am happy and I am a super lucky Gal! I have a hubby who is one in a million and 2 wonderful daughters who are just so unique, amazing, talented and there are none like them in the entire universe. I love them to bits. I always considered myself very RICH. Not in material things, but because I am so happy and my life in fulfilled. Having hair or no hair makes no difference to one’s happiness (...)
