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! Women and men around the world have different ideals of beauty. Yet, 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 are 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 that? I believe it is through honoring and caring for our mind, body and spirit.
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 “bio-individuality” was extremely important to wellness, healing, and treatments. Health and Wellness was not just about lifestyle but also about being well-informed, making individual choices for our own bodies, and weighing all the options available to us. I spent years exploring the connection between mind, body and spirit and firmly believe that taking care of all three is the key to good health, well- being and longevity.
Coupling my expertise in media, conferences and events, with a passion for wellness culture, I now directly serve women who share my passion for living life well and strive to be comfortable in their own skin. 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 everyday we are still learning. Ancora Imparo!
