There are some of us who are very confident and have the resiliency of a tank (kudos to you!).
Then, there’s the rest of us. We get influenced by what we see and hear. We lend our ear to the latest fad diets and designer images. We might not hear often enough how much beauty we have, we only hear how much beauty others have (most often, superficially).
The video is a well done reminder of our struggles to love ourselves and our bodies. We are unique humans, beyond the superficial. Our girly side indulges in makeup and beauty routines that provide us with feel-good rushes, fun, giggles and relaxation. At the end of the day though, smile at yourself in the mirror, sans makeup and Spanx. That’s beauty.
