If I were 弗里达 卡洛, I would have painted myself without a unibrow. Or at least have become aware I needed a pair of tweezers.
Would we remember 弗里达 卡洛 today if she hadn’敢于保持自然的眉毛，并在其上唇上留一点胡须吗？
But from what Iâ€™ve read, 弗里达 was too smart to leave her fame and reputation to chance.
她违背了当下的惯例，扬起眉毛和上唇 自然 为了脱颖而出。当然，这些只是整体风格中的一些要素，使她难以忘怀。关于她的一切—从她的外表到她的绘画再到她的个人生活— 工作ed together to create a powerful message.
您 can do the same thing, and thereâ€™s no eyebrow pencil required.
When 弗里达 was in her teens, she was riding a bus 那 collided with a trolley car. She broke her spinal column and pelvis, and shattered her right leg. She suffered severe pain for the rest of her life, and was in and out of the hospital for surgeries from then on.
As writers, we bring our life experience to our keyboards. Our best 工作 comes from tapping into our emotional lives and sharing some of it when we talk to our readers.
弗里达 painted her pain, her joys, and her frustrations. She would have made a fascinating blogger.

弗里达 â€™s paintings could have easily been eclipsed by her famous husbandâ€™s. Diego Rivera was a beloved muralist whose projects appeared around the world. 卡洛 and Rivera had a tumultuous marriage 那 was marked by deep respect for each others’ 工作.
For all the raw, honest emotion she shared through her paintbrush, there was one aspect of 弗里达 â€™s life she consistently lied about. According to her official birth certificate, she was born in 1907. But according to 弗里达 , she was born in 1910.
Apparently, it was in solidarity to her native Mexico. The Mexican Revolution began in 1910 and signaled the birth of a new government. 弗里达 shaved three years off so she could say she was born at the same time.
I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own 真实ity. ~Frida 卡洛
您 donâ€™t need a unibrow, 粉红色的头发，或者态度不好。但是，如果您想让我们记住您，则必须分享您独特的声音。
Maybe you feel powerless and broken, like 弗里达 might have after her life-changing accident. 您 might think 大家 around you 是 more talented. It might 看到m like the odds are against you.
