Beauty standards have changed throughout time. However, Media has played a great role in setting these standards and manipulating our minds to take certain body images as the ideal beauty standards. When in reality, beauty is unconventional. Yes, totally eccentric!
As humans, we tend to forget that each one of us is unique in our own way. Each one of us has a different body, different shape and formation. We forget that everybody has a different reaction to different types of food, workouts and various metabolism levels. Away from all body image stereotypical clichés, we’re perfect whether we like it or not.
Viola Davis, ‘How to Get Away with Murder?’ actress, has inspired all of us when she said, ‘Do not live someone else’s idea of what womanhood is. Womanhood is YOU!’. True that, Viola! It’s us ladies, that’s how you’re supposed to look like and that’s how you should accept it!
Though we can’t change how we’re formed, being healthy is ‘our’ choice. Healthy meals are within our reach everywhere we go and exercising has become easier and quicker with EMS. The thing is, being healthy doesn’t only boost your self-confidence but also changes the way you perceive life and appreciate things.
The first curvaceous woman featured on the cover of a sports magazine, Ashley Graham explained, “ It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or 22, you can be healthy as long as you’re taking care of your body, working out, and telling yourself ‘I love you’ instead of taking in the negativity of beauty standards. ” She also stressed, “I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are too. There is no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt.”
Ashley, a standing ovation from all our gender won’t be enough to praise your attitude. That’s the spirit, ladies! That’s the motto we’re supposed to live our lives with. Let’s embrace our uniqueness, let’s love ourselves, let’s flaunt our curves!
