I feel FREE and I challenge you to do the same

Happy New Year Everyone!! 2010 was just not my year and I hope 2011 has some better things in store for me.
Yesterday I went to the gym for the first time in a while and I decided to be FREE and go without make-up. I know this may sound odd to some of you, but I am self conscious about my skin due to the acne scars on my face, that when I go to the gym I usually apply some foundation and a hint of blush.

This was a big step for me, it felt so good to go outside without makeup AND no one stared at me, made comments or funny faces..LOL Sometimes I think that will happen if I go out without a little makeup because I got made fun of quite a bit as teenager for my acne. It may sound silly after all these years, but in the back of my head, that is what I think.

I challenge you to all do the same thing and post a picture on your blog, with the title: I'm FREE!

I think it will be empowering to see us all up with the confidence to post a picture of ourselves in our naked face.

So to start of 2011 on positive note, I dare you to be free and confident!

Post a picture and be free with me! It is such an amazing feeling and I will continue to wear no makeup, every time I go to the gym and maybe even more

What do you think about this challenge? If you decide to do it post a link in the comment section and I will create a section on my blog, with a link to your blog post, so everyone can see our naked faces and it can empower more people to give it a try and be free like us! It will help to remind us that we are all beautiful, with or without makeup


For some inspiration, there is a post on MUG to get you going>>>HERE<<<<<
