We cant ALL be beautiful…

It really annoys me how women’t magazines and self-help books are always trying to get me to believe I’m beautiful. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Every woman is beautiful! No matter whether you’re fat, thin, tall, short, wear glasses, have funny looking arms all you have to do to be beautiful is believe it. Now look in the mirror and repeat 10 times “I am beautiful”. Do that every morning for 21 days (the amount of time it takes to form a habit) and… taa daaa! You too shall be beautiful!

Sorry, but NO. It doesn’t work like that. Believing my hair is blonde will not make it so. Believing I’m a musician won’t magically improve my singing voice. So why should believing I’m beautiful magically make it so? There are millions of people in the world… it’s simply not possible for every single one of them to be beautiful. What they should be telling us to do is be okay with not being beautiful.  Concentrate on the good, yes, but don’t ignore the bad. Pretending I don’t have a big bum won’t make it any smaller, but learning to be ok with it might make me feel better. This is my new goal. Who knows, maybe it will even work…
