So this is a different kind of post than you usually see from me, but I think it’s an important issue that we face in today’s society and probably in many societies before now. The value that we place on beauty is out of control and to be honest rather disturbing. Now don’t get me wrong I love makeup and fashion and I even have a beauty/lifestyle blog however I simply see it as fun and entertainment, my mind is not preoccupied by it; it’s not all that I think about or care about. I find the enjoyment of it but it is not the most important thing in my life, it is merely a hobby. However, I sadly realized that this is not the case for all girls or women or even men/boys. Some people’s life goal is to achieve aesthetic perfection. That’s all they want in life and they will go to the ends of the earth to achieve it.
Those people will never be happy; one because humans are inevitably going to get older no matter how much you spend on products or surgeries. So embrace it, every wrinkle or grey hair is a sign of the experience and knowledge that comes with age.
Beauty is always changing, one day really skinny girls are in another day big butts and thicker women are in. Do you know what that means? That just shows how every body type is beautiful, and all fashion does is rotate which body/physical aspect is in that year. So don’t change yourself for other people and know that next year your gonna be it trend. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and as long as you see the beauty in you that’s all that matters.
It’s hard for me to understand how some people willing go into surgery just to change the way they look, while others pray everyday not to be in the situation where they have to go through the pain of surgery in order to live.
Instead of spending so much time on beauty and looks, focus on your personality, your education and your family.
When your on your deathbed you won’t reminisce about how beautiful you were, you’ll be thinking ” What have I done with my life?”, ”What is my legacy?” , ”I should of spent more time with my family and kids”.
So fill your life with joy and don’t regret anything. Have fun with makeup and fashion but remember life is short, look beyond the mirror and realize what a beautiful human you are.
P.S Beauty is not pain, beauty is having a smile on your face and a kind heart 🙂
Sorry for the rant 😛
