Love Thyself

I was sitting in the bookstore today and overheard a girl who worked there saying to someone else, "Gosh, Jessica Alba is so pretty! I wish I could look like her. I want to be everything she is!" I wanted to turn around and tell her that she was beautiful just the way she is. I know I should have, but I didn't. I know I need to speak up more often.

Yes, Jessica Alba is beautiful, but everyone has their own unique beauty. It's time for women to embrace and love themselves for the beautiful women that they are.

There's a local periodical that comes out every Thursday here in San Diego. It's called The San Diego Reader and the first ten pages or so has ads for plastic surgery doctors. Women displaying - ahem - distorted looking breasts occupy these pages and it saddens me that they don't love themselves enough to accept how they were brought into this world. Are big breasts truly going to make them happier? Are they really going to find their knight in shining armor with those big breasts? Probably not.

There's one celebrity that I admire for staying true to herself...Debra Messing. You can tell that she's a natural beauty and is confident in her womanhood. I absolutely love her fashion sense.

The next time you find yourself saying "I wish I could look this way....", I recommend that you take a look in the mirror, give yourself a hug, and say, "I love you!"
