I looked in the mirror this morning. I felt good looking at myself. I have never been one of those girls who keep checking themselves in every mirror they pass by. Those girls who have to have every strand of hair on their head in place. Those girls who place everything on appearance. I don’t do that. Yes, it’s important to look good. It’s important to look decent. It’s important to look presentable. But it’s not important to look perfect.
Sometimes it’s fun to let go and have fun. To be the ‘crazy in a good way’ person you were meant to be. Half the fun is going to be taken away if you keep making sure you look perfect all the way through.
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.
Sadly, that’s what many in the world today do. They judge people on how they look. I try to judge people on how they feel. Something or the other about everyone is beautiful. You’ve just got to look for that particular quality. I’m not perfect in appearance, I know. (Slightly on the heavier side.) I don’t try to be. I have been losing weight recently, but I do it so I can feel good. Not because I want to be perfect.
It’s not really the outside that matters when you consider the inside.
In light of recent events, I’ve learnt a lot of things. One of them is that you’ve got to be you no matter what others say about you. You can’t really please everyone in this world. But be the nice you. Not the mean one. Always remember, it’s the inside that counts.
You can try to please everyone and feel horrible, or you can try to please one and feel the joy of their smile when you do.
I’ve been that girl who changes herself to fit in. I’ve been that girl who acted like someone else. I was messed up. Then I decided I wasn’t going to act anymore. I became me. The real me. The crazy me. (Come on, who isn’t crazy in their own way? Hmmm? :)) I found people who would accept me for being the me I was meant to be.
My point is, everyone’s great in their own way. That’s what’s so great about everyone. They’re all beautiful in different ways. Everyone’s unique.
There are two types of people in this world. One is those who look in the mirror and feel awful because they ‘don’t look good.’ Two is those who look in the mirror and feel awful because they ‘don’t feel their personality is good.’ Try to be neither and create a third where people look in the mirror and feel happy for who they are.
Inside every human is a bird waiting to fly. Open your cage and let it stretch its wings. You can only open your cage by accepting you for who you are. Don’t try to be someone else. Do not try to be perfect all the time. Be you – the you you were meant to be. Always.
When I look in the mirror, I see a dark-haired girl with a smile and a twinkle in her eye. I see a positive girl who is ready to take to the sky. I see a girl who experiences the best of emotions all the time. I do not see a girl who is slightly on the heavier side. I do not see a girl who has flaws in her appearance. I do not see a girl who is imperfect.You do not have to be beautiful on the outside to be beautiful on the inside. But you have to be beautiful on the inside to be beautiful on the outside.
Catch you later!
