Past TV show, How to Look Good Naked, on Lifetime, with Carson Kressley, was putting women on the radar, to embrace themselves from head to toe in their individual beauty! He is going to Oprah’s OWN Network (their website). Ladies! Carson is just one of many reminders that we need to make ourselves feel good inside and out of our skin. Most men are just gorgeous doing nothing, so let us learn to be less preoccupied with our silly hang ups and accept every part of ourselves. Shake what your mother and father gave you, stop focusing on what other people define as beauty. I truly believe the world is our mirror, whatever we put out, we get back, so believe and live your best beauty for yourself. This important Quote “Beauty is only skin deep” has always repeated itself through centuries so absorb it !
Middle school is so much drama. Hey guys, I am a 6th grader at BBMS middle school, other 6th graders understand middle school like I do. I’m here to talk about how parents always say “well when I was a kid”, my parents do too. Lets say every 6th graders parents are about age 35, back in the old days “no offense” back in 1986, 25 years ago! From movies that I’ve seen, parents that I’ve met, lecturing from my parents, its a different time. It seems back when our parents were in school, if they were bullied they could just tell, and get it over with, but now a days it’s different. If you tell, all your friends will pick on you, the person bullying you will get you back, trust me, I’ve been in this situation.
I have shared that during my childhood I became withdrawn with my family, not sharing feelings, interest, dislikes, all the questions, experiences of life lived. So I learned and created my own form of communication. I am not saying that I have come full circle but I have been presented with situations to improve my voice. I still struggle here and there but It is nice to know that I’m not the only struggling communicator! Communication has its place depending on its setting, dealing with family, relationships, friendships, children,businesses or business relations. It is as if we were all writers and every ten years, or before, we write our story, communicating what we have processed(changed, eliminated, added, learned) we write about new adventures or becoming more sedentary. Life is fleeting and things can change in seconds, minutes, hours, weeks, months or years. Every individual has his or her own story, internal beauty, and when words are spoken or written on a page, they are meant to be understood, or shared. If the message is not clear, then get clarification, every story has its own identity and individual importance. People want to be heard, they want their thoughts, convictions to translate what is in their heart and mind.
I have yet to see the original but the remake of The Women, in 2008, is my go to movie. It is a reminder of how we lose all the way around, when we put ourselves last. I speak for myself as a Woman, a Daughter, a Sister, an Aunt and a Girlfriend, If you are okay, everything around you will be okay! This means saying no, setting boundaries, doing things that inspire you and that keep you alive in the journey of life, what ever role or title you take on.
