2021 Bold Beautiful Perfect: Christy
“Inner beauty is the ability to handle whatever the universe throws at you with grace and dignity”
Tell us about yourself, Christy!
On October 25, 2020, the life I had known for 33 years vanished in an instant. First, my husband Michael of 33 years died of a massive heart attack. All of the unspoken conversations – the “should have, could have” – was gone. Two days later, Hurricane Zeta landed destroyed my roof and my office. After 26 years, I was no longer a business owner. I went into full survival mode – head down don’t make eye contact. I wanted to disappear. Slowly I came out of the darkness and the healing began.
How did you come to understand your inner beauty?
Inner beauty is not the same as physical beauty. Inner beauty is the ability to handle whatever the universe throws at you with grace and dignity. Inner beauty radiates from the inside to outside. It says I am strong, I am a warrior, and I survived. All is well with my soul!
