Hello there.

There is this tag that’s been going around youtube for some years now, that I thought I’ll bring here to WHI.

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
- Marilyn Monroe

Beauty is subjective, it is not a fact. The things other people find beautiful might not be the same for you. And the things you don’t like about yourself, someone else might love.

To not like every part of your body and soul is perfectly okay, loving yourself is a process, it’s something that takes time. And that’s okay. As long as you try.

And to love yourself, your body and your mind, is also perfectly fine. To think that you’re pretty is amazing, it’s what everyone strives for. Therefore when you get a compliment, don’t deny it, own it, it is for you. Say thank you and give yourself a pat on your shoulder.

Life is a journey and unfortunately we walk mostly alone, you will spend everyday of all your life next to you, and to not enjoy your own company would be a shame.

Therefore I’ve decided to do this tag, partly to show that everyone believes they have flaws and partly to show that you can overcome it, if you’re willing to put in the work.

Flaws.

My body.

I’m excited for the day I’m going to look in the mirror and be happy about everything, I’m working on it. I’m eating healthy and taking care of myself and one day I will achieve my goal.

My neck.

Some women have petite and slender necks, I’m not one of them. Other people doesn’t notice it but I do. It’s because my head is on the smaller side, it messes up my proportions. I never wear chokers or polo sweaters because I think it draws attention to it. But to make myself feel better, because I’m a positive person, I tell myself that it’s muscle. I bet my neck is stronger than Gastons.

My moles.

Both of my parents are covered in dots, which means that so will probably I. I’m already covered in a bunch. But I’m trying to see the positive in them. I already love the one on my lip and the two dots next to each other (#bestfriends). So I’m working on it.

Things I like.

My eyes.

Even though they don’t work the way they should, they’re still cute. I like the shape of them, and the colour. When I was younger I really wanted brown eyes, like I really really wanted to get contact lenses and I was only twelve. But now I kind of enjoy my grey-blue-green eyes with yellow in the middle.

My muscles.

Since I’m a dancer the muscles on my body are extremely important, therefore I love my muscles. Not that I’m some big Hulk woman, no, I could work out a bit more. But for now, I like my muscles. They make my dancing possible.

My hair.

I really like my hair because it’s easy. I’m not one of those go-up-early-in-the-morning-to-curl-my-hair type of people, I’d rather sleep, therefore it’s great that my hair doesn’t get to tangled, it doesn’t require styling to look somewhat put together, and even though I haven’t cut it in almost a year it doesn’t feel frizzy or broken.

Personality.

Personality is the thing that actually matters. It’s your mind that you need to learn to love first. Your mind and soul is forever but beauty is only temporary. Your body will deteriorate because it’s not meant to last forever. Therefore it’s better to start loving your inside because that’s going to stay with you for the longest.

Flaw.

I need to work on my temper. When I get angry I have a tendency to say things I don’t actually mean. And I wish I didn’t, but I’m working on it. And I’ve gotten better. My temper and how I behave when I get angry is tested on a daily basis in my job, but I’m getting better.

Thing I like.

I love my ambition. It can be annoying at times of course, I always makes things and projects a bit bigger than necessary. But I’d rather have crazy ambition than not having any at all. I know what I want in life, and I’m going to have it. I’m working hard to make tomorrow better than today. I set goals and I don’t stop until I’ve accomplished them. My ambition is my drive in life, it fuels my dreams and makes me believe they are possible.

Maybe this article helped someone, I hope it did anyway.

Learning to love yourself is a process, it takes time, but it's worth it.
