Beautiful Voices is our ongoing blog series that highlights inspiring, empowering women. Our most recent Beautiful Voice is Sharon Harangozo. See what she says when Annmarie asks her some questions about her own personal beauty.
I am so blessed to share my life with my soul-mate and husband of 14 years. I have sooo many interests/hobbies. Being active, I love yoga, Zumba, dancing, mountain biking and hiking, and also quiet time for self-introspection (gardening, reading, photography, meditation and crystals). I am happiest when in balance with myself and my surroundings. I am an avid learner of everything about health, wellness and spirit. I am especially fascinated by Eden Energy Medicine and hope to study to become a practitioner someday. : ) I love spending time with my family and friends, too. In the future, I see myself expanding with travel to sacred places like Peru and would love to feel grounded by the sand of Hawaii!
Who or what is your biggest inspiration?
My mom (Laura) is my biggest inspiration. She and her husband (Ron) operate a small commercial greenhouse and market garden on the land that she was raised on. The greenhouse is her passion and flourishes with blooming annuals, healthy herbs and veggie plants. They also plant numerous large gardens so that in the summer they can offer “fresh-from-the-garden” veggies for sale. She has a love for growing things and inspires young people from the community to start their own gardens, providing encouragement and sharing her experience and knowledge.
This is changing the way people think and eat. People visit as customers and leave as friends. : ) She radiates love and acceptance to everyone she meets. She believes in getting back to nature and living as cleanly as possible. She has a natural beauty that shines through her sparkling eyes and gentle smile and has a way of interacting so authentically and from the heart. I am so grateful that she's my mom.
If money was no object what would you be doing (would it be exactly what you are already doing?)
I would pursue education in energy medicine (Eden Energy Medicine) to become an energy medicine practitioner! And I would love to partner with my husband in his photography/videography endeavors.
What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
“Be yourself…everyone else is taken.” To be authentic to who I am in my actions, thoughts and words feels light and easy.
Where and when do you feel most at peace?
In nature, whether it is tending to my garden and yard or mountain biking/hiking with my husband, nature restores and replenishes me. Listening to the song of birds, feeling the breeze and sun on my skin, and coming into balance—how does it get any better than this?
How does Annmarie's mission fit into your lifestyle?
For many years I have learned a lot about myself and to be aware of my body and it's needs. I have been on a path to balance and Annemarie's mission of healthy, pure, nourishing skin care is one that I immediately connected with. I am so grateful for her uncompromising commitment to quality! I've shared her products with everyone I know.
What are your words of wisdom to other beauties out there?
Beauty really starts from the inside out from all perspectives. When you love and care for yourself, inner peace and glow is a natural result that can't help but come out into the world and affect the people around you. You are your own best healer…listen to your wisdom. : )
Isn't she beautiful?
