Just another day

Just another day in life. Nothing new to discuss, no huge realization. It's just another beautiful day. I was thinking this morning though, and I noticed how much trouble some girls go through just to get the attention of some boy. It's rediculous how much emphasis society puts on "beauty". Who says that just becuase you're not size zero with perfect skin, that you're not pretty? Who decides what pretty is? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you think that you're pretty, then you are. You don't need the approval of others. Yes, it's important to make a good impression on people, but at what cost? There are so many different diet pills, surgeries, etc. that make us think that there is something wrong with who we are as people. Hypothetically: if you get work done (let's say it's a nose) and you have a little girl that doesn't like her nose (the one you used to have). Do you tell her that her nose is perfect and she's beautiful the way she is? What if she finds out that you had your nose fixed? You can't be hypocritical with your children. It's sending them the wrong message. Children have to learn some things on their own and you can't always be there for them. That doesn't mean that you have to stay out of their lives. Children ask for a lot of stuff sometimes, but at the end of they day they know that you're doing everything you can to give them a good life. They don't need all the fancy stuff, if they know that you love them. Try telling them more often and explaining this to them next time they're asking for some new toy or crying because they don't get their way. It might help. ;)
