Who You Are- Body Image

It's closing in on 1:15 A.M. right now & I can't sleep. I'm going to write this post instead.
I'm sure you've all heard about the media and how they perpetuate this ideal of beauty that is unrealistic and does not show-case the various differences in women all around the world. This is all very true. But I want to come at this from a different angle.

The media suck, yes. But the fact that they suck and we are aware of it is what's truly important here.
We know that what they show is false and unattainable. In light of that then, I want tell girls and dudes out there that what you think of yourself is ALL THAT MATTERS.

There are going to be people out there who are brainwashed into believing what the media says, and they are going to annoy you. I know they annoy the hell out of me. There are going to be people who may not want to be your friend, or date you because you don't fit an ideal. Did you really want someone so ignorant & stupid in your life anyways? Probably not. If all they're seeing you for is your exterior then they weren't worth YOUR presence to begin with. Do whatever you want for you.
I watched a documentary recently, and several "What Guys Look For In Girls" Youtube videos, and they've just opened my mind to how overly opinionated we all are. I have no place to say what someone else should do with their bodies, as no-one has a right to say what I do with mine.

Regardless of how you look if you want to wear extensions, straighten your hair, dye your hair, wear long fake nails, wear makeup or not, pull all your teeth out and replace them with gold teeth, go ahead. I mean you're living with your decisions, not me.

If you feel good about the things if you've done & if your decisions make you happy, pertaining to your physical appearance: more power to you. It's wrong to judge others, or think that anyone needs to change who they are to fit your (or any) standards. If you don't like girls in converse, well damn...guess we can't get married then. Oh well.

Maybe I'll try this new year, new me thing...

It's 2014! Incase you haven't realized, even though we're just about 20 days into it. In my post 2013 I spoke about some of the things I've accomplished last year, which I am superbly proud of but that doesn't mean I don't have a nice list of resolutions to set for myself this year! To be honest, I'm a little intimated writing these all out because then I feel barred to them. And, if (or when) I fail I'm going to have to do the post of shame at the top of 2015 telling you all. Which...would, kinda suck.

So here's my list.

  • Go somewhere I've never been before. 
  • Be less afraid of "going out" and "partying" 
  • Raise myself esteem, and stop talking & looking down on myself so much. 
  • Say yes to things I'd normally say no too. 
  • Stop avoiding people. 
  • Get 100 downloads on my next self-published work. 
  • Kiss someone this new year's (a girl can dream right) 
  • Make better videos for my Youtube Channel. 
  • Write better blog posts on here. 
  • Get too 100 GFC followers on this blog. 
  • Be less of afraid of being blunt about what I want/don't want/like/don't like. 
  • Being less ashamed of who I am. 
  • Drink more water. 
  • Depend less on caffeine to make me feel more awake..and you know..actually just sleep more to feel more awake. 
  • Go to church more. 
  • Get a job, and save lots to hopefully be able to travel a lot more in 2015 & onwards. 
  • Go to more music festivals and concerts. 
  • Stop forcing myself to do things I don't like doing to please people I don't even like. 
  • Be more appreciative of what I already have.
  • Be more open. 
  • Be braver.
Do you have any resolutions, list them in the comments, I'd love to know!
