The Search For Perfection

I honestly don't know very many people who are "happy" with the way they look. And generally speaking it is because they think that they're too fat. It wasn't very long ago that having a little "fluff" on your body was actually a beautiful thing. This is just a reminder that you don't want to go too far in your search for the perfect body weight. Not everyone is meant to be small, and not everyone is meant to be curvy. Each body is different! Remember that when you look at yourself in the mirror today.

This is Marilyn Monroe. She's been considered the most beautiful woman in the world. She's gorgeous, and beautiful, right? But look at her stomach. Is it completely flat? Does she not have love handles, of course! But does she have perfect long skinny legs? No. She doesn't. Her pants size was a 9! She wasn't 00 or 1. She had CURVES. We all worry about our pants size, and our weight when, in reality, who cares? Why not live our lives and be happy instead of counting calories in our head? Love yourself, because if you can't love yourself, you can't love anybody, or anything else. Be free, be happy, and be healthy!


  1. Great points! Yeah, that super-skinny look is definitely not attractive! We women need to go a little easier on ourselves and strive for strong and healthy rather than model-thing.

    1. I completely agree!
