Beauty At Its Finest

I am not a fan of the term “ugly“. Yes, I am guilty for having said the word, just like everyone else. However, as I have gotten older, I do not see the need for such a word.

I don’t think I can look at a person and think he or she is ugly.  Honestly, I think that the majority of people have a good heart. I love observing people’s personalities.  And from my observations I have found that if one is truly a rude person, their pessimism shines through 90 percent of the time.

The personality reflects the beauty behind the physical. The quality of the human heart is more important than a pretty face and an empty head.

Haha, oh, goodness! Look at me throwing these cliches around. Forgive me, I just wanted to express my feelings on this subject. And for more expression, below is a video of my freinds and family and their opinons on beauty.  Enjoy. : )

The Beach, My Sanctuary.

San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

I took this photo in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

The beach is a tranquil place. The ocean’s salty ocean breeze, the smell of the sea and the coolness of the wind all adds to the beach’s refreshing and relaxing atmoshphere.

I have layed on white sands and have snorkled among tropical fish that live in the Caribbean’s colorful reef.  I have stood on top of large cliffs, looking down at waves breaking against the rocks.  I have swam in the pacfic ocean in mid-fall with nothing but a swimsuit! Crazy, huh? But my body quickly numbs to the chilled winds and ocean waters.

I go to the beach to be present. It is a place where I do not have to ponder over the worries of life, plans for tomorrow or the happenings of yesterday.

Me, running.

My mom snapped this photo of me running on one of  Oregon’s beaches.  I am dressed for the city with my sleek black boots, white fashonable coat and my coffee.  Maybe I should actually be running to catch the subway…haha. The coast is always a familiar place, a sanctuary of peace, regardless of where I am.

Women: Stick To a Healthy Body

Every woman has at least one complaint about some part of her body.

Skinny beautiful models don’t help the perception of what women think they should look like and today’s diet plans include dangerous habits, like fasting and dieting pills.

What happened to eating in moderation and exercise? What happened to loving your curves?

Speaking of models and curves, Marilyn Monroe is the “it-girl” exemplar for the ideal woman’s body:

Marilyn’s body is the definition of a healthy. But not everyone has bodies like Marylin, therefore, it is important to remember that your body’s form will not change.

As women we need to recognize our body type and work to keep it healthy and in shape by eating good and exercising regularly.  Also, we women can learn to love our bodies and play up and show off of their best features.

Embrace and flaunt, Ladies!
