Strong Beautiful Mother: The story behind the t-shirt

Moms are superheros.  They create life.  They raise children.  They are intelligent, strong and beautiful. That alone is enough to create an empowering shirt.  But it goes deeper than that.  Moms come in all forms and support systems.  Being a positive example to a child is an amazing gift that should be celebrated every day of the year.

Recently I have been communicating with Maggie’s Place.  I love what this organization does for our community.  Giving a home to women with children that need a helping hand to get back on their feet.  I created the Strong Beautiful Mother shirt from this inspiration, where $5 from each shirt is donated back to this incredible women’s charity.

I am so grateful that my sister and I were shown the support and love from a strong Mom. Our rock, our “keep everything together” supermom taught us about strength, beauty and living a life filled with JOY.  We learned to laugh until we cry.  We learned to cry, really cry, and that its OK just the same.  I am so grateful for this life where my Mom was MY MOM.

Celebrate the Moms in your life.  EVERY DAY. Soak up any amount of time you have with them.  Say thank you and I love you.  Take nothing for granted.

Inspire: The story behind the t-shirt

Inspiration:  It’s all around us if we are open to seeing it.  As inspiration comes from the world around us, it’s also within us.  Being inspired about who we are, what we have done and being better.

The inspire shirt encompasses all of these aspects.  Inspire yourself.  Inspire others around you.

I am inspired by women who own who they are and a community of creative minds that support each other.  I live for the days of simple joys that overflow into creative inspiration.  Small things can turn into BIG things.

I created the INSPIRE shirt to remind us that we have inspiration: in us and around us.  Find what lights you up!  Seek out new experiences and soak up the journey.  Live an inspired life.

BRAVE ONE: The story behind the t-shirt

Let’s talk about being BRAVE.  Do you ever feel like you cannot go forward and then you wake up the next day, and then the next?  You pushed on.  You forged ahead. You proved yourself wrong in the best possible way.  YOU ARE BRAVE.  You did it, you are GOING to do it, and you are AWESOME!

Facing adversities can make you feel defeated, but the smallest of victories can lead to the greatest successes. Give yourself credit for the days you did the small things that got you to your next day. And celebrate the days those small things lead to big things.

I created the BRAVE ONE shirt as a badge of honor.  Big or small victories deserve to be celebrated.  Wear this shirt to remind yourself of all that you are.  You have done much to get to this point, and you have limitless potential!  Live bold.  Be BRAVE.

EMBRACE EMPOWER: The story behind the t-shirt

Embrace Empower.  Heavy words on their own, powerful together.

Embrace who you are: The amazing, the good and the imperfections. Embrace the less than perfect life. Embrace the JOY of life. Embrace GRATITUDE.

Accepting who you are will EMPOWER yourself to push forward, to overcome.  It may just INSPIRE others to feel empowered themselves and spread positive energy.

I created the Embrace Empower shirt from my own embracing of who I am.  It’s been a journey, and it’s never going to be completed. I am continuing to be the best me and learn to let go of the things that no longer serve me.  I embraced who I am, and it was empowering!  I hope this shirt can be a reminder for you to do the same.

GRATEFUL: The story behind the t-shirt

There is so much talk about living a GRATEFUL life and how it can change your perspective on challenges and imperfections if you do so.  And although it is not always easy, living a life filled with gratitude is powerful.  Accepting what is and finding things to be GRATEFUL for even when it feels like you couldn’t or shouldn’t.  This is where the shift takes place.

Every day I take a moment to find something to be grateful for.  SOMETHING.  ANYTHING.  Even when the day was filled with the worst moments, or somber emotions, I find a nugget of gratitude.  Some days it is one thing and other days it’s a list a mile long that I spew until I can not think of one more thing to be grateful for.

Making the change to focus on the positive, which is a work in progress, will lead to a lighter and happier life.

I created the GRATEFUL shirt to remind us that even on the toughest days, there is something to be GRATEFUL for.

STRONG BEAUTIFUL WOMAN: The story behind the t-shirt

I have shared my inspiration for creating the Strong Beautiful Woman shirt before, but being the first shirt in the line and the forerunner of spreading the Strong Beautiful Woman’s Movement, it bears repeating at a little deeper level.

After doing makeup on many women over the years, I have been so honored and grateful to be a part of special days, events and moments.  Women are powerhouses.  It’s amazing all that we accomplish even on the days when we feel like we have no motivation or lack self-confidence.   Imagine all we could do if we KNEW we were POWERHOUSES!

I know these feelings because I am that woman.  I suffered, and am recovering, as a self-critic with depression and anxiety.  So when women are hesitant for me to see them without makeup or are self-conscious of imperfections, I feel their pain.  Deeply.  So much more than I could express.  I often leave makeup jobs and spend my drive home wondering if I could have done or said more to help that women feel even more AMAZING!

I am inspired by these women.  The Strong Beautiful Woman shirt was not created to be boastful, or conceded.  It was created to INSPIRE and spread a positive message.

I have been told before by a woman that she “wouldn’t wear that shirt because I don’t feel worthy of the message.”  I was floored.  I never wanted someone to feel they COULD NOT wear this shirt because they were not “up to par” to the message.  I replied that this shirt is not about that.  I said, “You put on that shirt and OWN IT! Fake it until you make it. You will come around. You already ARE that women.  It’s time for you to realize it.”

Some days when I wear my shirt I don’t feel like I am strong. Or beautiful.  I call them OVERCOMPENSATION days.  The days where you need a pick me up or a boost.  The days where putting on the shirt makes you walk a little taller and remind yourself that you ARE Strong, Beautiful and Feminine.  You are SO MUCH MORE than you even know you can be!

T-shirt Tuesday! Wendy Nault

Screenshot_20160701-185753

Everyday I am grateful that I have this mom as my mom. She is the core of a Strong Beautiful Woman and an incredible example to my sister and me. My mom is caring, patient and is there as a helping hand for those that need it. She loves fully and enjoys all that life has to offer. My mom has always encouraged us to live our dreams and is right there to help us along the way. Thank you Mom for all you do for me!

A little about Wendy:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: This is my favorite t-shirt because it helps promote my talented daughter’s endeavor.

Tell me a little about yourself: I am a retired 60 something year old, proud and happily married to my husband Michael for 37 years. We have two beautiful daughters and enjoy camping around the U.S. I also donate time to the Pajama Program AZ Chapter (giving children in homes that can not afford a new pair of pajamas a chance to have their own) and Project Linus (making quilts for children in situations that need some comfort).

Strong Beautiful Women Support

I have been so overwhelmed with the support and love of the Strong Beautiful Woman t-shirts.  Each woman joining the forces to remind not only themselves, but others just how STRONG and BEAUTIFUL they are.
