I Feel Pretty

Leave a comment Standard

I must admit, I’ve been avoiding watching the movie I Feel Pretty.  I really liked the concept of the movie, but I really really really don’t like Amy Schumer. However, I’m currently in the process of watching  the movie and I must say, it’s something.

This notion of self-confidence through mindfulness is amazing. As is the idea that “you are what you attract.” If you think you are worthless and ugly others will too because you are vibrating at a low level. BUT, if you think you are awesome and worthy of abundance then you’re life and company will reflect that because of your high vibrations.

The quotation above sums up the beauty of this movie. It talks about Self-Confidence, Body Positivity, and Acceptance in a way that media just simply isn’t doing yet.

We live in world where the shift to mindlessfull and happiness is dramtically changing into a value that is intrinstic instead of extrinstic. I’m grateful that media representation is starting to capture this shift in media, as well.

With that stated, this concept of self-confidence is probably the only thing they did correctly throughout this movie. This idea on a whole is about the only positive outcome. Nonetheless, I’m choosing to focus on the good, and this:

If not, this post might just turn into a rant about white societal ideals on beauty – blond hair, blue eyes, and white. Point is – If everyone just abandoned their negative notions of why they aren’t beautiful enough, smarter enough or rich enough, and just accepted that you are enough – the world and you would be a much happier place.

I’m Courting Myself

Today, I decided I was going to court myself. I packed some snacks and books. I downloaded some espisodes of The Ozark, it’s finally back. Also, I brought me a blanket. Then, I went to a parkette and chilled.

Afterwards, I took myself out to dinner and then brought myself home. The only thing I’ve noticed when I court myelf are all of the looks I get. Some people get so uncomforatble when you’re living in the truth.

I’ve decided to become my own best friend because lately people have been bothering my spirit. I feel like I spent so much of my life trying to live up to standards that were placed upon me. However, I’m learning that this is my life. This is my journey and I have to follow whatever path I feel l am meant to take. It might be unorthodoxed but it’s what I feel like I need to do. Affirmations. Intentions. Energy. Crystals. Meditation. Mindfulness. Gratefulness. Have been words in my vocabulary and it feels right to me. You might hear me and think I’m crazy, but I know in my heart I’m on the right path.
