Why is my butt so big??!

"Why is my butt so big?!" "Why are my boobs so small?!" All questions we ask ourselves, sometimes daily.  Plastic surgery is the growing trend in our world, why wouldn't it be?? You have the chance to fix any little thing on your body that you might hate about yourself. When I was young, my nose was WAY too big for my face, and let me tell you...if I could've gotten a nose job, I would've! Why not, right? Nose job here, boob job there, whats the big deal? But, how far is too far? 

When I saw all the plastic surgery Heidi Montag had done, it was very disturbing to me.  Not because she had something done, but because she felt she needed it.  Before, Heidi was a beautiful girl with unique features. Was her face perfect? Of course not, but perfect is over rated. I would rather have something a little "imperfect" that makes me stand out, then try to make myself look like everyone else.

Tonight is the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show! That's right, all the most "gorgeous" women come out and walk that runway shamelessly. While I love watching all the amazing garments and glitter of the show, I can't help but wonder who it might be affecting negatively. We see images of these fit, and what appears to be flawless women over and over. Covers of magazines, on TV, in movies...where are the real people? The world has become obsessed with the way we look so much, that we forgot what really matters...your inside. 

Some people get so obsessed with outward, that what was once a simple harmless idea to "get fit" turns into....

We see ourselves in this false light and give ourselves an unrealistic image to live up to.  The girl in that picture is WAY too skinny and yet, she sees herself as being heavier. The worst part of this picture, is that the girl in the mirror looks healthy and beautiful! But she doesn't like that image, its too big, not "fit" enough, not enough like the girls in the magazines. When will magazines start showing real people? Untouched up, raw, maybe some junk in the trunk people? 

Isn't she just soo GORGEOUS?! No wrinkles, amazing eyes, skin, everything! I wish I looked like that...actually, I bet she does too...

THATS real. Thats beautiful. But we never see that. I think she's just as gorgeous in the 2nd picture, as she is in the first. Maybe if more people saw it this way, eating disorders wouldn't be so popular, or the #1 reason of death. Everyone tries to fit into this mold of how everyone should look, but how boring would the world be if we all looked the same? 

My hair is a little too big, and my boobs are little too small, and you know what...thats great! We all could love and accept ourselves a little more and realize that the sexiest thing in the world is confidence! ;-) Work what you have! All those unique things about you...after all, you're the only one that has it! 
Everyday we can try to love ourselves the way we are, a little bit more....until then, I'll keep asking...."Why is my butt so big??!" Peace <3

Perez Hilton is cool, but being nice is cooler.

Perezhilton.com...who hasn't been on that site? I am EXTREMELY guilty of secretly reading the latest gossip, stories, and all there is to know about what's going on in Hollyweird. It's kind of like being in high school again, when you would hear the latest juicy rumor about someone you knew. You couldn't help but laugh, even if you knew it would hurt the person it was about. Because the truth is, its funny! Well, when its not about us...

Perez is notorious for pointing out celebrity flaws which makes all of us feel better about ourselves. Don't deny it, you know its true! When you see Megan Fox has a pimple, it makes you feel better! Like hey, she's not perfect just like me.  Perezhilton.com is just a mirror of what's going on in the world today. 

Kids are being bullied to the point where they're taking their own lives, no longer funny. Our culture and society is so programmed today to attack a flaw, something that makes someone different, a bad hairstyle, bad shoes, maybe a bad personality. Take Lady Gaga for example, when I first saw her I thought "this chick is WHACK!" Without listening to her or giving her the chance to change my mind. Then one day...I listened. She is SO talented, different, yes, but what's so bad about that? 

I'm sick of constantly reading about what's wrong with people, instead of what's right with them. All that does is give the rest of us permission to look at what's "wrong" with people, and ourselves the same way. It shouldn't matter if you are short, tall, black, white, caramel, gay, straight, whatever! We are all made to be unique and special, and that's God's business, not mine! I'm tired of seeing celebrities go to rehab or battle eating disorders, its sad. 

Everyone is striving to be "perfect like a celebrity" but celebrities are far from perfect! And so are we...I'm trying to figure out who decided what was "beautiful" or "perfect" and who gave Perez Hilton the power to tell people other wise. Let me say, I think he's a great dude, I really do...he seems like a sweet guy at heart and in no way am I attacking his site...i'm simply using it as an example of what's going on today...we spend more time judging lives, than living lives..."He looks ugly!" "She needs to lose weight!" You know what, I just PIGGED out on Thanksgiving the other day, and I enjoyed it! Who is Hollywood to tell me that I have to stay on some kind of diet and have celery for dinner?? I don't think so! Hate to say it but I love my burgers and fries way to much! Haha...

With that said, about a month ago, Perez Hilton said he was "making a change" and he really has. Hopefully he's the first of many to realize we need more love, and less hate...because Perez Hilton may be cool, but being nice is cooler. Just a small girls opinion in a pretty big world. Peace <3
