I was reading my book earlier and it started to explain something about this girl, and the word to describe her is “beautiful” and I started to visualize what she may have looked like and of course my visual was automatically a thin girl, maybe a size 4 or 5 jeans, with thick, long, wavy hair, perfect spray on tan, big eyes, full lips, perfect teeth, high cheek bones, and she was wearing clothes that were in style and revealed perfect curves. You know, something you see in a magazine? Absolutely no wrinkles, or blemishes on her face — no muffin top, or love handles. Who does that?? Magazines, movies, music videos, TV commercials are so deceitful and full of lies. I felt really disgusted with that visual once I had it. I was thinking about something so important that my book said until it started talking about this “beautiful” girl and my mind got the visual, I had to stop reading because I was so distracted by what myself, and many other people, consider beautiful. I’m constantly wondering who came up with that idea of beauty. Not to say the girls in the magazines are not beautiful because they are, but without the caked on make up, and revealing clothes. Just once I want to see a magazine on the shelf in a grocery store with a girl who doesn’t have any make up on her face, she didn’t just get her hair done with 7 different products in it. Maybe she could even have food stuck in her teeth, but that would be a little embarrassing. Haha anyway, that’s my rant for the night. Redefine Beauty. Not according to the worlds standards, but to God’s standards.
This is how we roll. <3
