Body Image Issues

Love her outlook!

thoughtsaboutthingsandstuff

Rant rant rant. It’s that time again!

I am so sick and tired of people telling women how to look. Body image is a massive issue for women, and this has been documented to death.

I just noticed this morning that my newsfeed was full of ads for diets and quick fixes to fat “problems”. I don’t know if this is because it’s summer or because it’s simply because I’m a female. Regardless of the reasons, it’s starting to piss me off! I, personally, am quite happy with how I look. There are, of course, some aspects that I am not such a fan of and wish I could do something about but I have never hated them so much that I would be willing to go on some sort of extreme diet or rub some weird oatmeal paste stuff on my ass or thighs in hopes of shrinking them. It is…

http://www.cafeastrology.com/articles/leowomanlove.html

Astrology

I am a Leo and by this links definition I have the characteristics of a typical Leo female. Astrology to me is interesting.  So, I would like to learn more about it. I choose on this new life I am participating in to get more information about anything that peeks my interest. Yes, with the internet nowadays to learn about anything our mind can muster up! But, along with research of my own I like to get people’s opinions on the matter. Unfortunately,  I am kind of weird and must have as many people’s one on one experiences or thoughts on whatever matter I am interested in knowing more about.  So. If anyone would like to give me their knowledge on my current topic of intrigue here are a few questions I have. Any information or experiences are appreciated.

1) Do you believe in astrology? If so why? If not then why not?
2) Have you ever planned your day, week, or month around your horoscope?
3) Some say astrology is the devil. Do you feel that is true? (No need for an in depth religious discussion please).
4) If you have a sign besides your own that most people you gravitate towards?

Well, if anyone would like to share with me thanks.

Dailypost/safety

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/11/21/daily-prompt-safety-first/

I haven’t been wanting to write deeply. So, these daily post suggestions suck to me. I am going to approach this prompt differently. You see there have been many times I felt unsafe. Picking one that I can describe so the person reading it can actually feel my fear and uneasiness is a hard one! So, in order for me to get out of my writers block I am going to write a short fiction story on this topic. Yes,  I know that’s a cop out I know. But, sometimes a girl needs a break from working on touchy subjects.

It was just getting dark and I was riding my bike as fast as I could to beat the darkness. Plus, being only ten mom wanted me home before dark. Well, my chain resides to come off right as in front of the house me and all my friends know is haunted. Great just great I couldn’t get my chain back on and now it was dark! I started hearing things all around me. I was so afraid of what was coming to get me that I pissed my pants and began to cry as I pushed my bike quickly home. I saw people watching me from every dark corner and I knew this was the end someone was going to kill me. Right before I got home. Just as my house came into view. Something brushed my leg! I screamed bloody murder until I realized it was my darned bike chain. I reached the safety of my yard and through down my bike, tore in my front door and ran to my room. Mom was yelling something but I wanted out of my wet clothes and my tears to dry before I had to face her. I never felt so unsafe one moment and completely safe the next as I did that day.

Ok y’all there is my fictional story on feeling safe. Funny thing is I think every kid has a story of when they first felt unsafe. To bad parents have to tell children don’t be out after dark or this could happen. Don’t talk to strangers or they might do this. We as parents in today’s society have had no choice but to teach our kids to fear. We do it only to keep them safe.

Improving my self image

image

I have very low self esteem and I work on the way I see myself as much as I can. I am by no means a raving beauty. But, I am pretty to me. I took this photo without make up and I hadn’t brushed my hair since that morning.  Just el natural! If I could have taken a full body shot I would have. It would show a very large woman. My weight is a struggle. But, for now I am embracing my beauty as a whole. Even a woman that is by all the world’s definition that is obese can be sexy, beautiful, and pleasing to look at. Its all in the attitude. You act ugly you are ugly. How you see yourself is how others will see you too!
So, this is me…….rather cute huh? Lol
