Think about it, you are not a body, you simply live in a body. Just as you are not the earth, you merely live on the earth.
Just grasp that.
Inside, we are a soul, with spirit and bravery and a fire unique to only us that burns within. Sometimes the fire is quenched because of our 'flaws' but truly, our bodies hold within the most important assets of our characters, our dreams, beliefs and the raw, unaltered you.
To all of the young girls and boys who are allowing their distorted self image to overrule their character, do not be afraid. You stand with billions of others who have fallen victim to the illusion that there is something known as perfection.
We always hear of the medias 'perfect body' but let me tell you this does not exist. We all have very different conceptions of beauty and an ugliness inside will most definitely translate to something uglier on the outside.
Beauty is not the face of someone who starves them self to seem beautiful. Beauty happens spontaneously, like the wonder on the faces who have the courage to dream, the sparkling eyes that are opened to the limitless possibilities that they have, the books bundled in her arms as she walks, focusing her mind on a new story.
I'm afraid of what may happen if I become too involved in my own looks, if I start to believe that how people see me is all that I am. I understand that one has to be their own hero, their own biggest fan but sometimes that can be very daunting.
Be self aware, aware of toxic thoughts and feelings and don't succumb to your ego as anyone who is worth anything will see you for the wonderful person that lies below the skin and bones. The spirit in your soul.
You also should be aware that the media and businesses Know of these insecUriTies and they try to TAKE ADVANTAGE of theM. There is Nothing more hateful than big business using our insecurities to make money and wOrsen our doubts.
Together we should stand. Be happy for those who are happy as thIs does not mean that you too are not wOnderFully blossOming in a different way. Don't overthInk the Illusion of beauty nor UndereStimate the ImporTance of loving yOurself. It is very powerful when the youth Know their worth.
Life is something that can be constantly marvelled at. Not something to take advantage of like manipulating the earth for our own desires. The earth is your home too and we must finally take ownership of these homes and take care of them like we would a house.
If you need to change something, look at it with ration. Be calm in your reasoning. Beauty isn't a process it's in everything that you do, fat or thin, makeup or barefaced.
It's hard when you're young and trying to conform to what you think is right but life is something that cannot be redone. You will regret picking yourself apart when you waste your life doing so.
Keep workIng on this, it can't be established in one sitting. In home part 2 i will be talking In more detail about how to take care of the worLd and i will give you tips on how To be happy Within yourself and look beyond looks and fabricated beauty. For now ...
Treat your body like your home. Treat the world like your home. This is YourWorld.
