Friday Frills


No one needs to be a certain size, or a certain weight, to be beautiful. 
Beauty simply isn't about that. Not to sound cliche, but beauty is totally in the eye of the beholder, and highly subjective. You could be totally unappealing to one person, but to another you could be a dream. So it's not really about trying to fit into some imaginary model of what you think beauty is supposed to be. It's about doing your best to be as healthy, happy, and confident as you can be, and loving yourself whatever the outcome.

Very inspiring quote and very true :)
Sometimes I think "oh this is what's beautiful, this is what people are looking for", but I have to remind myself that everyone is unique and we all have different preferences and ideas on beauty and we should embrace it :)

Love it.

Life is all about perspectives. You see what you choose to see and true beauty is in the mind, words, and actions. I love this post Sam, thanks for sharing and many thanks for your insight!!. Happy Friday hun xx

Yes, you are certainly right about loving one's self first of all rather than being concerned about others' perception. A positive attitude conquers every ill.

Lilli said...

Morning Sam, cannot be more agreed too! Even though, is always easier with words than with facts. Nowadays with are so "bombarded" with beauty, perfection from media and the fashion is in part guilty to creat imaginay examples which in reality not exist (thanks to photoshop). Btw, I think women (and men) just must follow a healthy lifestyle and be more confident; happiest people are always the most beautiful. Happy Friday dear, kisses! xo
