Oh a lot has changed since my last post…well I haven’t gotten another tattoo, but since starting this blog, a lot has changed, but a lot has stayed the same. I ended long non-relationship relationship…whatever that meant, or means, or didn’t mean. We were exclusive, best friends, and almost business partners, but then well, reality hit and suddenly I felt like I had to hold my tongue around someone I was always open with. I never felt beautiful; I felt like no matter what I did, I would never be good enough, and no girl deserves to feel that way.
With that thought in mind, and my hours spent scanning my Facebook news feed (that’s what I get for working at home, and not setting up a parental control on my internet from 8am to 4pm)…Everyone says “hater’s gonna hate” but you know what, people need to chill the fuck out. I follow “Inked & Sexy” and think they have great posts. Sure…not every girl is attractive in my eyes, but I don’t make negative comments about it…however sometimes, I read through other people’s comments to see how the world reacts to different types of people. So here goes my rant…
I’m a 5’2″ brunette weighing in at 120 lbs…wearing between a size 0 and a size 4 or 25 to 27, depending on the brand. Usually fit into an XS top but sometimes I wear larges…I’ve been the same bra size 34C, since I was in high school, and I swear to God, my boobs aren’t that big anymore…but I still fit and measured into a 34C. So needless to say, I’m no “top model” style. I’m short. I’m curvy. I’m brunette. But I’m still beautiful. Just like everyone else in this world who is happy, healthy, and positive. It doesn’t matter how tall someone is, how skinny someone is, or what color hair they have – respect people for who they are.
Here is me, trying on a catwoman body suit for Halloween.
Recently, I’ve seen a switch from the love of tall-super-skinny-blondes to more “real” (another issue I have, we are all REAL – unless your photoshopped, but people need to be smart enough to realize that Photoshop exists, so don’t act like people are perfect). It is really great that the US population is starting to appreciate other types – not just the Victoria Secret model type…but hey, that doesn’t mean we should think it is acceptable to bash a person who is born with the kind of body that has been idolized throughout the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s..and still is in all reality.
My whole issue is that, can’t we all just realize that bodies come in all shapes and sizes and it is more important to be healthy and happy with who you are than always idolize something far out of your reach. Love yourself. Love others. Don’t hate on someone for superficial reasons. What if the really skinny girl has some kind of health issue that keeps her from gaining weight? Or what if the brunette with long beautiful hair only has it because she has hair extensions after recovering from chemotherapy? You know…or maybe, that person is just satisfied with their self – so they share their happiness with the world, buy wearing a smile, and having positive vibes.
Live on beautiful people! And when life gets you down, just remember…Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Anniston don’t look alike. Neither do Jessica Alba and Kate Upton. No one looks the same – so don’t lie to yourself and believe that there is something definition of “perfect”.
