"For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness, For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people, For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry, For Beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day, For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end
of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others."
- Audrey Hepburn

Simply Beautiful. In today's society, the word "beautiful"

has become distorted by the media with models, celebrities, and artists who determine what is beautiful. But let's be honest, who are they to decide?

Since when did SKIN&BONE become the "hottest" thing? Do you find this attractive in the least bit? If looking like a twelve year old boy is what you are going for then by all means, starve yourself and end up looking like this. This poor girl probably looks in the mirror everyday still thinking she is not thin enough to be considered beautiful. Girls at the tender age of 8 years old are already starting to have self-image issues and eating disorders due to the images they see in magazines and on television. This is what the world is coming to. Why can't we have healthy, beautiful women be our role


It's good to feel beautiful on the outside, but if that is what your sole purpose in life is then you are never going to be truly happy. You will always find some flaws in yourself. You can never be truly satisfied with a life like that. Take Heidi Montag (from the Hills) for instance. When she left her little town, her mother said she had all the confidence in the world. Then she enters the L.A and her perception of herself was completely altered. She started to compare herself to people who were highly thought of in L.A as the BEAUTIFUL stars. She became so unhappy that she had ten plastic surgeries in 1 DAY. Yes I said 1 day. And she is still not happy with herself. She not only looks less beautiful than when she began, but she looks about twenty years older!

We should be focused on nurturing how we are on the inside. "Looks fade, but personality lasts." When you are old and wrinkled people aren't going to remember your looks. They are going to remember the way you treated people, and the things you did in your life. Why would you want to be remember as the woman who was beautiful on the outside, but nobody liked her because she was ugly on the inside? Lend a helping hand, be a friend, serve everyone. Make your life worth something. Everyday we have is a gift, why not treat it as such? P.S Men, tell woman how beautiful you think they are for everything, what's on the outside, and what's on the inside. (it makes us feel good ;) )

Ok I am done with my little venting session. It's just I am sick of everyone comparing me to girls my height (which is short) and being well you could stand to lose some pounds. and yes that was said to me. And I know I should, I just don't see why that has become acceptable behavior in our society. Well today I started my first day at UVU. I can already tell this will be an interesting summer term... I am glad to finally start feeling like an adult. The world better watch out for me, they aren't even going to know what hit them!
