How can big be beautiful? Are you telling me that there are men walking along the street and they see a big woman, they go “ga ga” over them? Is this what we are really telling ourselves? Oh wait, does that even matter?
Yes, the skinny ones and the ones with the right amount curves get the first reaction from all of us men. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying or is just plain silly. But my question to you is this? Why do you need an external source of affirmation? Why do you need to hear it from a larger audience that big is beautiful and all that good stuff?
Can I tell you something personal and in a way a little shallow? I love going out with beautiful women and you know this phrase “Beauty is only skin deep”? Have you heard that one? Clichéd yes, but damn, it is true. After a while, we really want more than the beautiful woman that is sitting across us. Hard to believe, but we want the conversations and emotional connections too. Don’t get me wrong. We don’t want it all the time but we still want it.
Do you see what I am getting at here? There are some you who fall in love (actually lust, but I don’t want too many hate mails, even though that is out the window now) at first sight. And there are others whom you fall in love with over time like fine wine or caviar for that matter. Like taste you got to acquire. Now I know what you guys are thinking; what the hell is this talking about and where is this going?
What is really gorgeous is a woman who truly loves herself and is dedicated to living life to the fullest and by her terms. This is not easy anyone who tells you that it is has never done it before. I know perfection is impossible but why can’t that be the standard by which one lives by, defined by your terms. Define it! Define what is gorgeous and remember that it is beyond skin deep.
I feel that I am philosophizing but to heavens with that; yes I am. Whether, it is a woman or a man, we need to redefine it. Skinny is gorgeous! Short people are gorgeous! Giants (people above 7 feet tall) are gorgeous too. And BIG is definitely gorgeous but only when you define it in a way that makes you happy and fulfilled. We do not have to go around looking for external affirmations ladies. All you need is within you and the day you start embracing that, you become the most beautiful woman in the world.
You know what is the strangest thing here? The people who write these articles are sometimes the biggest hypocrites in life and you just made me realize that. For that, I thank you. Today, I will start a brand new journey knowing that I am a wonderful human being who is more than what others say I am. My biggest encouragement to you is that you join me. Always be gorgeous!
