sorry that i have been gone for quite a while; i went on a lovely holiday to newquay, cornwall! it was wonderful to go back to the beach after a few years <3! if you would like a lil’ holiday recap post, please feel free to comment down below :)!
so, a few months ago, i created a series called ‘let’s talk over tea’ and i decided that i would like to give it another go by writing a post about a certain topic that i think needs to be acknowledged: beauty.
“there is nothing more beautiful than when you prove to yourself just how strong you are. – anonymous”
the meaning of beauty has evolved over the years and to be honest, i don’t think that it is for the better. of recent times, inner beauty has not been a subject of conversation due to social media. our world is twisted and sometimes i wonder what our world would be like without expectations and stereotypes.
“we are all born so beautiful the greatest tragedy is being convinced we are not. – rupi kaur”
many people, including myself, do not fully embrace their appearance due to certain ‘standards’. comparison is the thief of joy and we need to learn not to be affected by it. you do not need a perfect body and long locks of hair to be beautiful. our ‘blemishes’ are what make us unique individuals therefore, they are not things to be ashamed of. self love is the best kind of love and we must understand that happiness will come easily if we just try to appreciate ourselves for who we are. no matter what shape or size you are, you must embrace your body. then and then only, will you bloom.
“and i said to my body. softly. ‘i want to be your friend.’ it took a long breath. and replied, ‘i have been waiting my whole life for this.’ – rupi kaur”
some may think that calling yourself beautiful is vain however, i strongly disagree! loving yourself is not at all vain and it is something that we all have to do. i am very proud in saying that i think that i am beautiful.
“it’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself and to make your happiness a priority. it’s necessary. – mandy hale”
of course, our world is evolving and becoming more accepting. however, if you see someone walking down the street wearing something ‘out of the ordinary’, people can’t help but judge; it is the unavoidable truth. we will never be fully accepting of people who are different because that is just the human nature. that’s the thing; we just blame it on who are. we can’t change that because it’s what we do instinctively… no! the present is not permanent therefore, we must use this to our advantage and change.
that’s it for this lil’ post! i hope that you enjoyed reading it :)! feel free to share your thoughts with me in the comments down below.
until next time.
with much love,
