Society has engraved a particular “supermodel” stereotype of what beauty ideals are into our minds. They feed us with pictures and opinions of what beautiful should look like. Well, they are wrong because the people who they tell us are the beauty ideals also struggle with feelings of imperfection sometimes. Many lives have been ruined in trying to get to an ideal weight, skin color, body type and size.

Years ago, I would stand in front of the mirror and look at my body and I would hate what I saw. I felt I was too skinny, too short, didn’t have enough curves like my fellow African women, I was too dark, my behind was too small, I wasn’t pretty enough and a lot of other things. Growing up in a stereotyped African society where “bigger is better”, I felt very out of place and felt like I didn’t fit in. I had low self-esteem and it affected my social life and my mentality.
Then Instagram came. I opened a page and began to follow fitness pages. I would see pictures posted of all kinds of women of every race, ethnicity, body type, height and all ages. I saw women who looked exactly like me. What shocked me was when I would go to the comments section and there would be all sorts of comments about how she’s perfect.
PERFECT! I couldn’t believe it. Someone somewhere thought a woman who looked like me is perfect.
Then it hit me: I AM PERFECT
I’m not where I want to be but I’m definitely not where I used to be. I realized that the more I declared good things about myself, the more they happened to me. The Law of Attraction works!! It’s what you feed your mind that it produces. If you feed it depressing and “can’t do” thoughts, you’ll be depressed and can’t do anything. If you feed it positive and exciting thoughts, your life will attract positive and exciting things. Speak to yourself every day. Trust me, you listen and so does the universe.
Ladies, please know that whatever you look like, you are beautiful and there’s someone who thinks you’re perfect. That person is me. YOU ARE PERFECT.
