Hey Gorgeous Ones!
As I sit here with another one of my fabulous headaches...I thought I'd catch up on my You Tube watching, and I came across this video & just had to share. This beautiful girl below is Trisha. Someone I've been watching/following for a while now, and I wrote this post about her, when I first discovered her. She's inspired me since the moment I found her & I think we could all learn a thing or two from her. Most importantly...her confidence & her ability to be the epitome of "herself"...in a world that's constantly trying to change you. I celebrate...to the tenth degree...anyone who lives their life for them alone (without hurting anyone of course), and who...when looking in the mirror...is so proud of the person staring back at them. Props is an understatement...I give them a standing ovation! With Summer here, and all of us trying to look our absolute best & be "bikini perfect"...just make sure that the measure of perfection...is judged by you alone. Never compare yourself to anyone else. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be your absolute best. I think we all should live up to our fullest potentials...in every aspect of our lives, so long as you are trying to be the best version of YOU. Not what society or the world thinks you should be. If your body interferes with your life & activities, meaning...if your weight limits you from living your best life...then yes...it might be time to make a change, but if not, and you're 100% happy in your skin...then hey...STANDING OVATION & eat an extra slice of pizza for me! Ha Ha. You, and only you...should be the judge of that. The world is so full of "ugly"...and not at all what I mean is the size of your jeans! "Pretty Is As Pretty Does" & skinny does not always equal...pretty. You are not a size. You are not a weight. You are not an age. You are not a trophy. You are not a doll. You are not stupid. You are not an image. You are not an advertisement demographic. YOU ARE A WOMAN...and YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
What I wrote to her...
"YOU ARE STUNNING & deserve a standing ovation for this one, T! This "mean" epidemic NEEDS to stop & I couldn't be more proud of you for bearing not only your body...but your soul. My Mama always said, "Pretty is as pretty does", and you my dear...are beautiful. If you can't say anything to improve the silence...please, please...don't say a word. We are all in this world together, fighting our own battles, and we all need to stick together & help each other through it all. BE YOU & BE PROUD! XO"
Have a beautiful night, Gorgeous Ones!
As you look in the mirror tonight...smile at the beautiful reflection staring back at you.
She's as beautiful as it gets!
LOVE THE SKIN YOU'RE IN!
