The Beezus Diaries: How to Embrace Your Masterpiece

{By Bianca Wohleking}

Not all are called to be artists in the specific sense of the term.

Yet, as Genesis has it, all men and women are entrusted with the task of crafting their own life. In a certain sense, they are to make it a work of art, a masterpiece.

Every genuine artistic intuition goes beyond what the senses perceive and, reaching beneath reality’s surface, strives to interpret its hidden mystery. The intuition itself springs from the depths of the human soul, where the desire to give meaning to one’s own life is joined by the fleeting vision of beauty and of the mysterious unity of things.

All artists experience the unbridgeable gap which lies between the work of their hands, however successful it may be, and the dazzling perfection of the beauty glimpsed in the ardour of the creative moment: what they manage to express in their painting, their sculpting, their creating is no more than a glimmer of the splendour which flared for a moment before the eyes of their spirit.

John Paul II

The words above are from St. John Paul II, “Letter to Artists” he wrote in 1999. I want this be recognized for each post I write this year. My new years resolution for this series is to hold the art of fashion to the highest standards, where it should be.

We have the freedom to express ourselves and our unique individuality through what we wear. January is a month where we can re-evaluate where we stand and where we want to stand.

The new years resolution I want every one of you to make is to be unafraid to take risks and try new things. If you find something beautiful and are attracted to how it’s worn, the color, the fit, the flare: embrace it.

Break free of your negative limitations and find your niche.

Not only will this effect your confidence in how you dress but by being the best version of yourself, you are embracing the happiness God is calling you to have! The joy we can embrace by being His. Coming up this year I’m looking forward to all kinds of posts on make-up,hair, local boutiques, interviews, and bringing light to some especially fashionable women. If you have anything specific you’d like me to cover leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you!

Here are a few things that I will be embracing for January.

I’ve always admired how hats change an entire look. Also, I want to become better at mixing my neutrals. A lot of simple things with high impact.

So my January challenge for you will be to make the changes you admire.

Embrace your masterpiece.
