Here is a quote that inspired me to find my purpose and make my mark.
|"Do not go where the path may lead. |
Go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
This quote helps me to see that I am in control of my own destiny, going with the flow is not a must. It's kind of like being a leader and not a follower. Defining yourself by your own standards, not by someone else and what they think you should be.
I was thinking the other day when watching T.V. that the media and magazines portray beauty as being a certain size women with certain assets and a certain look, we've all seen the adds. We may have even tried to live up to the image of beauty; but I can't help but wonder who is the person or people who determines what is beautiful and what beauty should look like? People spend so much time and money trying to conform to these images when they are already beautiful. I've seen people get plastic surgery to enhance and cut off and shape things and they end up looking worse rather than better. I don't think we are all suppose to look the same anyway. Instead of making ourselves look like someone else, why don't we just be the best us we can be. Make what you have work.
I think our self image has a lot to do with how successful we think we can be. How you see yourself could have a lot more to do with where you see yourself than you may realize. Don't allow your head to be filled with nonsense that has no orgin and cause you not to realize your potential. You decide what's beautiful without media influence then walk in that, and see how others began to want to be like you.
I have found that confidence is attractive. My husband is most attractive when he is confident in hiself, he says the same about me.
Have you ever came across a good salesman who was selling something that you didn't think was such a big deal, but after he/she began to sells it and bring to light all of its attributes and functions, you began to think "Wow this is pretty cool!" kind of like those informercials! Well, this is what confidence does for us. It enhances our personality and allows others to see how attractive we really are.
