Mirror Mirror On The Wall…

Who is the fairest of them all?Unknown

You know what fairytale that line is from. It’s one of the first movies we see as little girls, Snow White. The ugly, bad, evil queen is obsessed with Snow White’s beauty and… you know the rest.

SO HOLD  UP… wait a minute – if that’s the first movie little girls are seeing then WHY are we shocked with a poll that says teens are obsessed with looking perfect! The poll was on Time Magazine, and it states that “teenage girls spend almost twice as much time on their appearance as teenage boys: girls spend 7.7 hours a week, boys spend only 4.”

Are we really shocked?? THINK ABOUT IT! If the princess is perfect and the evil one is ugly… Well DUH we are going to go with perfect. SOCIETY, I kind of blame you!! YES, YOU!!! Can I even hold you accountable for that?! Well I am because this is MY BLOG, MY SPACE and I want to blame you.

Yes, it takes me forever to get my frizzy hair in place and as much I want that tostada ((white bread with a lot of butter)) in the morning I think about my abs and how far,, far away my 6 pack goals are.

Our teens are obsessed with looking perfect, that’s all they see. billboards, magazines  you won’t see a beautiful girl with some cellulite and stretch marks. Everything these days is airbrushed to look perfect. Celebrities have babies and in 4 weeks they look great. When I had my first child, I was left with this fupa. (Google it..not pretty!)
I gained 40 pounds, the baby was six pounds, the placenta 2 pounds and  then what happens to all the rest?! OH YEA, it stayed on me!!

We can all agree we are not perfect, so let’s teach the generation to come that it’s OKAY to carry baby weight, it’s OKAY not to be perfect, because perfect does NOT exist. What counts is how you treat people!

People will remember how you treat them, they will not remember your botox or your crows feet. If  we make it a point to embrace our beauty marks, our daughters will embrace their inner beauty.

So society… you know where you can go now!

Muchos Besos!
