Are we choosing to be our own celebrities?

Monday, August 04, 2014

I was watching a T.V gossip show the other day . On the show they were talking about people having plastic surgery to look like celebrities. One woman on the show a popular model with a reality show said' I was lucky, I hit the genetic gene pool, I don't need any surgery to make me beautiful , Now days everyone wants to be a celebrity, but I know what the people want and how to give it to them . So go ahead ! Make your Youtube's . Get your 32 views , if that's what you think will give you fame."As sh e said this she rolled her eyes and pouted.
That got me thinking about something I never considered before .Are celebrities worried that we will not look to them to set the trends anymore? Will companies look to the average Joe or Jane to help push their products from now on ? Are we looking for real people to be our inspiration? Is the standard they hold us up to getting just to high and we cant live up to it ?
First I would love to say to that super model. Honey .. I know a lot people on Youtube have a lot more then 32 hits ! Thousands , Tens of thousands in fact ! Is that making you worried dear ? That we are no longer looking to you with your perfect genes and highly paid photographers and beauty consultants , fashion consultants and P.R people for advice ? Instead we are looking at real women with real life and other jobs besides modeling who happen to want to share their advice . um for Free ! No strings attached .They are just as beautiful , some more so then you . I guess its those perfect genes. Except they are mom's or small business owners.what ever the case may be , and they are doing what you do and doing it VERY well !
For us .. Its a time that we can use this power or fall back in to the trap again. We have to let go of fake perfection that the media wants us to adapt , and start looking for real life heros. I think this is going to be really fun !
Someday I would love to write a blog sharing my favorite REAL PEOPLE on the internet that I turn to for advice ! This site also goes to prove that real people can help real people ! A couple of my favorite Spark people I look to for inspiration and motivation are JEWELS571 and KAREN _IS _HERE ! Thanks Ladies !

    So true Shell, we all keep running behind glamour which in momentary, but it is inner strength and beauty which will hold us in good stead.
