Today I write to you from... The Land of The Undead!
Duh duh .... duh!
(I hope that was as dramatic for you as it was for me.)
Okay, so maybe it's the fact that I've been up past 3 am every night for the past week, or maybe the stress from exams is starting to take a toll on my mental stability, but I'm really starting to feel like a zombie. And looking around the library at 10:00 at night, I can tell I'm not the only one.
The Land of the Undead, otherwise known as the library, is currently housing a number of
Instead of braaaaaains, we are all like "coffeeeeeee!"
... although maybe brains might be more helpful when trying to pass exams? I wonder if I can get them anywhere with my meal card?
Ok, to the point!
What I really wanted to show you was this:
Dove did this amazing beauty campaign to show just how much women underestimate their beauty. It's absolutely eye opening to realize just how much of a difference a change of perspective can make. What really struck me is that you can be so hung up on one minor detail about your self that you don't like, maybe you think your nose is to big, or you have too many freckles, but other people don't notice that. They see your smile, and your eyes, or the little dimples on your cheeks. So why worry about it so much?
Now, if I sat here trying to teach you how to have a good self image, I would be the first to call myself a hypocrite. I know that a good self esteem is very hard to obtain. I struggle with body issues everyday. But I think this video may have put me a step in the right direction. I highly recommend you take a look.
Now, I have heard the critics, and yes I understand where they are coming from when they say "You are more than just beautiful." This is true, but you don't need to hate on this campaign for it. Dove wasn't saying that physical beauty is all that maters. They were trying to give women everywhere a self esteem boost, so that they could begin to view themselves more positively. Everyone deserves to know that they are beautiful, inside and out. Because that's what's true.
