Society and the media often brainwash us into believing what the word beautiful means.We are constantly bombared with these “beautiful ” images that have been airbrushed or photoshopped.Young female children are given Barbie dolls to play with that have body proportions that are not even real and lets not forget that long blonde hair.
Celebrities are also known for their addition of surgery ,nail ,hair and eyelash extensions.All these are added to make one beautiful and us women see that as the definition of beautiful.The media is also filled with several weightloss products that can offer one a quick fix to look beautiful.
Growing up as a chubby child into a teenager,I had this image in my head that if someone was thin that made them beautiful.I recall at the age of 10 going to Weighless not of choice but I was forced to by my mum.I was not very confident growing up and didnt see the beautiful me that was always there.As I grew older I learned various life lessons that have now brought me to where I am right now.
I have learnt that …..I am BEAUTIFUL and one of a kind.I am not defined by my physical appearances.I have realised that beauty comes in all shapes,sizes and colours.Over the last 4 years ,I have come into my own taken control of my life.Taking control means I have decided to be healthier by making wiser food choices and limiting things which are not good for me in my diet.Being stronger means I am working on my self confidence taking note of all the lessons and blessings life has given me.Speed is not how fast I walk or run but instead how much quicker I am to grasp concepts and ideas and implement these.Last but not least is fitter…..well I am more aware of my physical activity and keep track of my step counter on my phone.I have a long way to go but every journey must start somewhere.
Indeed I have always been a BEAUTIFUL soul but now I know it and feel.Each day I make choices and decisions to make my life better.I have learnt that a beautiful exterior does not always mean that the inside is beautiful.All my decisions are my own and not those my mum forced on me as a chubby 10 year old.
We are all constantly changing and adapting our lives and our lifestyle.But never forget you are Beautiful and now you are making better choices for a better lifestyle.There are no quick fix methods or products to make one beautiful.Beauty comes from within and not out of a makeup bag or a plastic surgeon.
Hey Beautiful….yes you reading this post…I think you are amazing ….utterly gorgeous and a beautiful soul….make better choices for a healthier and strong you ….BUT nevet forget just how BEAUTIFUL you are….
