Beautifully Flawed....


In 2006, Dove released a YouTube video, Dove - Evolution. This video showed how the model's looks, after hair and makeup, were stripped through digital technology. Her neck elongated. Her lips, eyes and eyebrow shapes were changed. Her hair was changed to give it a fuller look. 

For all the girls that wish they looked like a model.... please know most of the women in beauty ads have been digitally enhanced to create an illusion of true beauty. For some girls, even when they realize this, still opt for beauty by Botox or by surgery. Others don't feel as though they will ever measure up and fall deep in despair. 

True beauty comes from within.  You know this because you have heard it a million times. Most of us have a thing or two we would like to change about our physical appearance. But we don't need to.  If more girls/women realized just how special they were, they would not tear down each other or themselves. I was so shocked to hear a friend of my niece, who is just 13 years old, talk negatively about herself. We should complement each other and ourselves. When this happens consistently, the world will see more people standing tall and walking confidently down the streets. 

We all are beautifully flawed. This is what makes us unique.
