The Pressure to be Perfect
It's tough knowing what's real and what's not when magazine covers and music videos are photoshopped (yes, music videos), Instagram pics are photoshopped, and so many women are getting surgery. How are we to know what kind of beauty can be naturally achieved when everything around us is so deceiving?
I wanted to revisit this post because I found an amazing video that broadcast what this post is really saying! Cassey Ho from Blogilates posted a picture of her to her facebook fan page a couple of weeks ago.

If you could change anything about you, would you?
If you said "yes" its time to reevaluate the love you have for yourself.
When I was younger I wanted to look like everyone but myself. I tried all the fad diets, all the beauty products I could find. I even found myself tearing up because I felt I wasn't beautiful or pretty enough. I didn't like my skin tone because I felt I was supposed to be lighter. I didn't like my hair because it wasn't straight and bouncy enough. I didn't like my body because it wasn't skinny enough. Have you ever felt like that? Nothing in today's society tells you, you are enough! Its so sad that because of the worlds perception of beauty, we go around thinking that who God made us to be was not perfect. But as I aged I learned to accept who I am. Trust me it took me a long time and still I'm facing this very issue. But I've learned through reading the bible that God made me perfect. He made me in the image of him...and well isn't God pretty perfect? So I think to myself If God made me perfect in his image then who is the media to tell me that I'm not good enough!
God has designed each and everyone of us different. We are unique individuals!
You have a beauty all your own! Isn't that amazing to know that God created you with different characteristics that makes you perfectly unique! God created and designed you in a way that DELIGHTS HIM! I don't know about you but I would rather have God's realistic Standards of Beauty than the medias unrealistic Stands of Beauty any day!
