Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful
Writing about this entry makes me think about the last time I felt the most beautiful. But I would just keep it to myself :p
Growing up, I had a fair share of teenage insecurities. But I am glad that I was able to make peace with myself earlier and accepted my strengths and weaknesses.
There are many campaigns now that advocate believing in one's self and accepting uniqueness. I love that even the recently concluded Miss Universe pageant doesn't only seek beautiful woman but also someone who inspires the youth and is abreast with issues concerning the world.
It is always easier to say "be confident" but we build confidence through experiences, lessons and validation of people around us. That is why, it is important to choose "our people".
It is also important to look our best (always) to feel more confident - because, everyday always brings us surprises and adventures. We wouldn't know who we would meet at the end of the day. I met my ultimate crush one fine night - I almost died.
If you are reading this and you doubted yourself, just think that you have qualities that others don't possess. People (you probably don't know) are inspired by the things that you do and your accomplishments. You are not defined by your shape, skin color and race. Be your own kind of beautiful.
Dove believes that every woman should celebrate her own beauty. I received this gift as a part of the campaign and I love how it reminds me to always take care of myself and my body (I tend to be pretty abusive).
