Do you know that you are being brainwashed multiple times each day? It’s true. It is the nasty truth behind the world of advertising.
The video below is a must if you want to take charge of how you feel about yourself. There is one thing in the video with which I must disagree. At the 3:48 minute mark, they say: You are The REAL woman. “Imperfections” are what make you YOU.
My disagreement is with their use of the word imperfections. I understand that they put quotes around it, but it could have been worded differently. For instance, maybe, What makes you YOU are exactly those things that cause you NOT to look like those skinny-ass women in the magazines.
Once we get to the point where we don’t like how we look, it’s a hard road back to liking that you are unique.
My suggestion is to begin by realizing that you are a miracle and quite magical.
Why do I say that? Think about it. At a small particle level, you are made up of the same stuff that the stars and planets are made of; the same stuff that the chair you are sitting on, the moon that makes you sigh, and those books on your shelf are made of.
But…and this is huge, you not only are a living being, but you are a human with ythe capacity to think, solve problems, love, and express your creativity. You get to be a human being on this glorious planet that is teeming with life.
That is quite unique in the universe. But even more than that, you get to be you. There never has been, nor will there ever be, another you.
I don’t know what God is. For me, it is whatever caused the universe to be. So in a way, God created you. You have been given this unique gift of being on Planet Earth, of being one of its brilliant life forms, and most special of all, you get to be YOU.
To do anything less than honor this exquisite gift of YOU is to dishonor God. And beyond that, to be anything less than the best person you can be, and that means being as happy as you can be, is a travesty.
Accept that you are unique, that you are special, and because you are here, right now, at this time on earth, you are precious and have a responsibility to offer the world the gift of you.
So go look in the mirror right now and really see yourself. Look in your eyes and say out loud, and use your name, “…you are special, you are unique, and you have much to offer the world. I am grateful for this unique body. I promise to love and honor it, and to share my love and compassion with the world.”
Now watch this video, and share it with every woman that you know, no matter their age.
