Truth & Photoshop

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
― Marilyn Monroe

Let’s face it, none of us are perfect. That’s exactly what makes us unique and beautiful. We live in a culture of Photoshop, plastic surgery, magazines and our televisions tell us that celebrities are unattainable perfection, and that’s what makes them worth idolizing. Idolizing, getting us to spend money and a life time chasing, but never finding, and feeling less than perfect. Hogwash.

“…even I don’t wake up looking like Cindy Crawford!”- Cindy Crawford

I’m as guilty as the rest about feeling yucky some days, yet I should be loving every moment of the gift of life in this body I’ve been given. I don’t fault anyone if they feel that they really need to alter something about the way they look, it’s an individual choice, but I do caution it. Just as not everyone was born to be stick thin, not everyone was born to LIKE stick thin, or the same lips, eyes, hair, or skin.  You ARE perfect to someone out there, and why change the very things about you that they may find so special?

“To all the girls that think you’re fat because you’re not a size zero, you’re the beautiful one, its society who’s ugly.”-Marilyn Monroe

Are you surrounded by people or things that make you feel poorly about yourself? Sometimes we need to look at the people around us, surround yourself with people that love you the beautiful way you are, put down the photo-shopped magazines, turn off the celebrity news and really count each and every thing you have to be thankful for in your life.
You’ll never feel more perfect, or more rich.

You can learn a lot from a Shih-Tzu

You can learn a lot from a Shih-Tzu. This is Chewbacca. Boy oh boy, is he cute, and soft, and loyal, and loving and snuggly. He’s also obstinate, gets stinky, is allergic to everything, has an under bite like a deep sea nightmare fish and isn’t really, well, bright. But …
