I recently talked about being brave and it got me thinking... Embracing imperfections takes bravery. We all have them and sometimes I think we just spend way too damn much time trying to hide them. Why can't we just keep it real and not be so worried about being real?
Don't we all know that every image in the magazines, online, and in the movies is totally photo-shopped? Even Instagram just about forces you to pick a filter- I mean, why do we need all these filters? We are all perfectly imperfect and every inch of us should be embraced.
I'm thinking life is too damn short to spend one more day caged by your insecurities. Time to thank our bodies for what they do and all the ways that they work for us every day. Think about all the things you've done in this life so far, you couldn't have done any of it without your body. And on that note, let's embrace those things our bodies can't do because we all have those things too.
You probably have at least one friend that can hike Mt. Everest with two babies strapped to her, while wearing ten inch heels, and rocking a body-con dress, right? Or the one whose arms are so great she could wear strapless dresses until she's in her 80s! Oh and don't forget the one with that gorgeous, thick long, hair that is perfect when she rolls out of bed? But do not compare yourself to them because guess what?! Even THEY have things they hate about their images.
So what's the answer? Plastic surgery??? Maybe for some. And I'm not judging here. But, I am advocating embracing you for you. Imperfections and all. So here goes nothing ladies. I think we need to start a revolution. Are you in?!
Suck up those fears and get ready to be brave... I want you to share your most hated perfect imperfections with #perfectimperfectionsnofilter below.
