Real Beauty!

I have a movie review coming up soon but I still need to write it.  I feel like sharing yet another video this Saturday morning.

Last night as I was playing my favorites playlist on YouTube, it lapsed into a long commercial and when I came back I only watched the ending of it and it had a very nice meaning to it.

A very meaningful experiment  at Dove about how we perceive ourselves compared to how others perceive us.  I guess its that most people like to criticize themselves especially their appearances.  This drags us down.  A few of the results that the people who joined into this experiment ended off with very meaningful quotes (which I will write at the bottom after the video). Check it out 🙂

“It’s troubling. I should be more grateful of my natural beauty.  It impacts the choices in the friends that we make, the jobs we apply for, how we treat our children. It impacts everything. It couldn’t be more critical to your happiness.”

“Our self-perceptions are generally kind of harsh and unbecoming one really. Its not how the world sees us.”

“We spend a lot of time as women analyzing and trying to fix the things that aren’t quite right and we should spend more time appreciating the things that we do like.”

This is an issue in my life.  Its not that I don’t appreciate what I have, but I am always criticizing my appearance.  Always finding a way to improve myself and at times it’ll make me see less of who I really am and it’ll burden me.  This regards a lot to our beauty, outer appearance, but it can apply also to the inner beauty and in general terms of how people (they specify on women) see themselves.  I work on that a lot…learning to see my real beauty, and to be truly happy with ourselves.  Our happiness affects those around us who care and love us.

To me, that was quite inspiring…

Do you recognize your real beauty? How would you describe yourself?

Time For Some Changes!

Today, WordPress came out with the new theme! How do you like the new look? I’m not exactly sure about the background color.  What do you suggest to match with those little pinkish white blobs on the top.  I’m not much of a color matching person.  I do alright for clothes but I don’t know.

So this is just a short post to say that if you see things missing, I’m working on that gradually tonight.  I’ll also be putting in new pages to replace the missing widgets at the side bar from before.  I had been wanting to make a change and this theme felt extremely right.  It doesn’t change much from before but I like the colors and its a cute design.

I’ll be working out the appearance and organization in the next day or two.  Feel free to drop me a comment or email, tweet (whatever works for you) to tell me what suggestions you have? I’d love to hear some design layout feedback 🙂

Posts will still be going up as I have a few Burlington ones planned and a movie review as well!

I’m working hard to make this look prettier, please forgive any problems you may see.  I’m deciding what to keep and give up, but the end goal is to make this better than before 🙂

Have a great Thursday evening!
