So we all want to be perfect right? From the kind of skin we have, to the clothes we own, and the bodies that we flaunt. But what does it take to call yourself perfect? Only you can be the judge of that. You should never let anyone tell you any different. You know that phrase, beauty is in the eye of the beholder… Do you know what it means? – It means that everyone sees beauty differently, so while you may find curly red hair to be stunning, someone else may prefer straight and blonde.
So perfect is whatever you make it, and it starts from within. Your mind is a powerful muscle, and it’s down to you to exercise it so that it is strong and can work on its own without needing to rely on other people’s opinions and validation.
Dealing with your insecurities
We all have things about our bodies that we don’t like – some can be fixed, some can’t be. The way you deal with them is entirely down to you. Some people may tell you to embrace them, and if you can, that’s great. But if you’re in a position where you can fix the issue that you have, why wouldn’t you? You may have boobs that you’re not happy with because maybe you’ve just had a child, and they’re not what they once were, in that case, you may start having questions like breast lift vs implant. Or you have crooked teeth and never got the chance to have braces when you were younger, so you’re thinking about getting them sorted now you can afford it. You are entitled to take whatever action you think is right for you, so never let anyone put you down for that.
Find your own inspiration
You can find inspiration all around you. You may look at sites or apps like Instagram or lifestyle blogs to see what the current trends are, or what your favourite celebs or role models are wearing, or how they wear their hair. Or you may take to the outdoors and have a look at what mother nature has to offer you. Inspiration doesn’t have to be through someone that looks like you – it can be from a willow tree, or a crystal clear river, or even a sunset. There are so many beautiful things in the world, but sometimes it’s hard to see these because the media often likes to focus on the bad. So it’s your job to open your eyes and see what is really around you. Take time out of your busy schedule and breathe in the air that surrounds you. Do something that makes you happy. Play your favourite music. Paint a picture. And dance around in your underwear.
How can you expect to perfect your appearance if your mind isn’t ready to accept who you are? So do what you need on the inside before you start thinking there’s something wrong with you on the outside. You’re beautiful.
