After reading a bIog today it made me sad to realize the warped view we have of ourselves and the agony it put us through. We are NOT ugly, fat, old, young, stupid or dumb. We are individuals with differences. What makes a beautiful person beautiful? The media make us believe we are ugly if we do not fit a mold someone created as the perfect person.
Look at all works of art; what one believes to be a worthless piece of trash others pay millions for it believing it is a priceless work of art. My husband and I went to the Museum awhile back and I fell in love with the installations of Juan Munoz being displayed. I felt such emotion towards his art to the extent to write to the artist expressing my passion for his work and attempting to interview him to see his perspective on what he saw, felt, what he was thinking while creating the art work. He passed away and I never did have the opportunity. My husband’s perspective on the installations was “hmmm it is OK, nothing great”
My point being we do not fit in a mold, what is beautiful to one might not be beautiful to others. We are all beautiful and special in our own ways. I hope we have the opportunity to know that what we are doing here at sparkpeople is for ourselves not to fit into someone’s mold of beauty and perfection.
Sparkpeople provide us with an incredible opportunity, to be anonymous, pursuing a goal for ourselves not someone else. It is stated all over the website that this is a change in our attitude and perspective of ourselves, it is a life changing opportunity for us to do something we want and feel right about us.
Upward and Onward we go.
