Hola lovely readers! Hope everyone has been great & that life has been handing you lemons (or whatever fruit you prefer)!
*Disclaimer: Personally not a fruit lover but totally am not judging fruit. Each fruit is their own fruit.*
Anyway, this post today is another one revolving around health. Well emotional health.
Something important to remember is that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and is not just limited to how someone looks or how their body is shaped. Society and how we view ourselves are directly linked, and sometimes we have a hard time separating them. Society seems to want people to be perfect, sticking us in these little boxes with all these labels, and kind of categorizing us.
By doing this, they put us in this little bubble full of stereotypes and prevent us from change. There are great parts of society, but there are still negative problems associated. Society sometimes takes over reality too much, which makes it hard for true beauty and change to be realized. The truth is that everyone’s version of beautiful is different, no matter what anyone else has to say.
For some, you may feel you are your own person and don’t let trends and stereotypes get in the way of who you are. For others, it’s not that easy. So here is another handy dandy project for you to get a different perspective of the world around you and how much you may be affected by it. Below is mine and the steps you’ll need to make your own:
Step 1: Take a piece of paper and divide it any way you want with however many sections. I only did two sections, what I think is beautiful and what society thinks is beautiful. You can do more sections though, like what society thinks is beautiful, what you think is beautiful, your family’s version of beautiful, and your school or work place’s version of beautiful.
Step 2: Using pictures or just writing down things, try to fill the sections with what they each think is beautiful. You can expand to what the section’s expectations are, what they see you as, or anything you feel fits.
Step 3: In the end, you should have pictures, drawings and words in each section. Look at each section and notice if they are different or similar to each other. Yay! You have finished your very own beauty collage.
Hope you like this little project! Remember to like, follow and smile at this quote!
