Artificial Beauty

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Can you believe what the media and movies and music do to our brains everyday? Here are constant reminders of whats beautiful and how we should look and what clothes we should wear that look good? I found myself thinking at almost every commercial man I wish I looked like that or I remember the day I looked like this. Its this internal war going on inside me that tells me I should look one way to be accepted by society or I should dress this way to be liked better. You know what I did next? I shut off that stupid TV and looked around me. My children dont love me for my looks. To them I am the most beautiful mother in the world. My husband adores me no matter what I look like. That doesn't mean I let myself go and wear sweats and a t shirt 24/7 but they appreciate me for my internal beauty radiating through me and not that artificial starving myself attraction. All that matters is that I am healthy for them. That I teach my children healthy live long lasting habits. That my husband shares a long and amazing life with me. There is so much pressure about having this one specific shape and size and its just draining. Sure obesity is a problem but being paper thin is not the solution or the end goal. I look at the super models sure they look good all dolled up but whats really under neath but a plain, starved, low self esteem girl. The first step of loosing weight is loving yourself and your body. Because we are all beautiful because we are all God's children,
