I am beautiful to the most important person in the world…ME!!! It’s nice to hear people tell you how beautiful you are, but at the end of the day, does that really matter? Why is it that we live for the approval of others? Look in that mirror every single day and tell yourself you are beautiful. Who the heck cares if no one else tells you that. The most important person just looked at you in the mirror and told you.
I did say that I would not give you any advice on my blog, that I would just let you know what I do and hope it will inspire you. Ok so as you know from my “You are Beautiful” segments, I am a big time advocate of looking in the mirror As I just stated in the first paragraph, look in the mirror every single day. I stand by that and believe in that 100%. My only advice to you is to not be like me with the whole mirror thing. I go a bit overboard. Ok ok…a lot overboard. When I used to work in an office, I had a mirror at my desk and would look in it I can’t even count how many times. My co-workers would walk by and see that I was looking in the mirror and laugh. Now that I am no longer working in an office environment and now work from home, I thought my obsession with looking in the mirror constantly ended until yesterday when my friend stopped by and saw that I had a mirror stuck between the pillows where I sit. I mean the mirror literally sits next to me. My friend and I laughed so hard. Even I was like, “Seriously Natasha!”
I can’t believe I just admitted that. The first step is to acknowledge the problem… haha.
Anyway…I found this quote by Tyra Banks that says:
“Girls of all kinds can be beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing and all in between. It’s not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box…Think outside of the box…Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you.” Tyra Banks
I agree with that message. The only thing I would change is that I would remove the word “can” to “are”. One more thing, the quote should not be limited to just girls. As we learned from my “You are Beautiful Part 6” blog, men have the same insecurities as women about their looks. So the phrase will now say that “Ladies and Gents of all kinds are beautiful…”
