Why Beauty Full?

My Vision, My Heart

Beauty Full Writing is a writing consultation service that guides professional women as they complete real-world, academic, or creative writing projects. I feel very strongly that any professional identity must first begin with an exploration of beauty from our personal stories. Only then can our work live out the authenticity, passion, and creativity that our hearts so desire. Dr. Meg Jay, a psychologist from Virginia who specializes in adult development, says that she often helps "her clients build professional identities by crafting stories about themselves that make sense, stories they can take around to job interviews." But some times we have stories that go untold because they bring us shame or guilt. "[T]hese stories are the bits of identity with perhaps the greatest potential for change . . . . ," Jay reminds us, but they "need to be edited and revised over time." While the triumphant stories are important, the painful ones transform our identities. This is what makes them full of beauty. Helping you find beauty in your story can mean many different things: I can help you discover a truth or goodness from the contents of your life story and make it blossom. I can help you organize the parts so they breathe and glimmer. I can offer advice on your style (e.g., how to create a harmonious blend between word choice, sentence structure/length, and your tone of voice). I can help you identify something that feels intangible to you, like a scent, but that you know is there on a sub-conscious level. For example, you need help "unpacking" the use of an odd metaphor or peculiar personal narrative that keeps returning to your memory, or you need guidance about how to integrate personal emotion into your story.
