BEAUTY U R Inc. is standing and evolving because of a planted seed of healing, producing hope, confidence, and motivation to move beyond the past and press towards a promising future. I didn't know how, I didn't know what, but I knew I had to get started. By faith, I took steps towards a goal that is now becoming more beautiful than I imagined. I have presented myself ready to my God, and he is lighting my path. As I am consistent with listening and prayer, I gain confidence that my steps are being ordered towards growth and blessing as many people as possible.
First is the decision to heal. Not everyone is ready to heal, and there is not a timer in place to move healing along for us. I reached a point where I knew something needed to change; I could not move forward the right way with the baggage I was carrying inside. I knew I needed healing and was ready to take action to eradicate healing and change in my life. That action for me was returning to my roots in Columbus, OH. Facing the pain concealed as a youth has prepared Ree, the Woman, Mother, and Businesswoman, to flourish and rise. Meditation, tears, prayer, talking, laughing, the silence was all part of my journey to my roots. Coming face to face with what I thought I never could, gave me the courage and broke down the hurt and shame I was feeling. I found relief and strength from no longer hiding what pained me but acknowledging the things that have brought pain. What has brought us pain does not have to take over us. We have the power to take it over and live our truth that all things are possible.
This journey to my roots was necessary for grounding myself to receive a bigger vision. It's not just about me; it's about a community of people who need to get started. Rooted and grounded is how I felt leaving Columbus, OH, after taking trips back and forth for several months to gain healing and progress. Behind every door is an opportunity, and each gateway could potentially lead towards success. I have learned that opportunity and success will remain dormant if we choose not to focus on them. Challenges and obstacles are here, but I choose not to focus on what obstacles and difficulties bring but what my desired outcome brings. Breathing purpose is the lesson through prayer and faith, reminding me I have a greater purpose. It is fantastic to see the revelation and truths magnified in my life, and I know there is no better time than the present.
I can't discuss being rooted and grounded without mentioning my love for skating. Skating is a severe hobby of my roots, so deep that my children even enjoy it like I do, if not more. It's something about the glide, stride, freedom to roll and move. Skating has always given my body and spirit a sense of composure that alleviates all tensions and stress. Skating is one of my first loves, when I remember having so much fun, being free to express myself on my roller skates how I wanted to. Roller skating to the music, allowing it to take me forward, backward, side to side, dancing, enjoying being loose, carefree, and most notably in the present moment.
