The Bloomin’ Couch

I viewed a video last week that made a big effect on me. I shared it to my Facebook wall structure even, because I thought that it could impact another person too. Since that time, it’s been on my brain constantly and I realised I wish to blog about it. If it can benefit anyone else at all, It really is needed by me to. It’s a video by one of the nicest YouTube beauty guru’s, Bubz. I am following her for years now and I find myself attracted to her videos because she’s so nice and positive.

The video is about our flaws and agreeing to them. But before I prattle on more, here it is. I think the biggest reason that message hit home for me personally so hard, is basically because I’m personally struggling with the scars pregnancy left on me. My belly is riddled with stretch marks now and the skin is pretty loose too. This is regardless of a variety of efforts from my side to lighten the marks and firm the skin. It is got by me, you understand.

My body did something wonderful, a wonder. A individual grew inside me as soon as she was out in the world, my body was able to feed her. How is that even possible? It still confounds me to think I felt her move while she was safely in my own tummy. WHILE I look within my daughter, I really don’t care about my body. On her behalf, I would have given my arm, my liver organ and my life.

I still would, more so after spending time with her even. I really like that litttle lady and I would take action all again to have her. At the same time, the saggy stretch out and stomach marks make me insecure. I don’t really have reason to be insecure, but I am, and I could admit compared to that.

I don’t fully understand why it bothers me so much. And yet, I do. As women, we’re bombarded constantly with images of the ‘perfect’ female. It’s as Bubz says in the video, they need us to buy their diverse products to improve us, so they constantly brainwash us to trust we’re not good enough.

  • 58 percent think a tan makes a person more attractive
  • No needle fix attention cream, Nip + Fab, £14.95 for 15ml
  • 1 Teaspoon surface oatmeal
  • Many times, a parasite can thrive in the human body and show no signs of its existence
  • Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++
  • How many hats do you own
  • Store in an awesome dried out place and make sure never to get any drinking water into it
  • Ask to see them sanitize their hands before they touch anything or you

Meanwhile, it breaks us down. Most women, a lot of people, out have a distorted body image there. I’m not saying an individual video changed my mind about my own body. But I’m going to try and acknowledge it anyhow. When I’m ready, I might even share an image or two with you here.

I’m much less brave as Bubz. I hope that you can begin to accept the perfect you too imperfectly. All of us are beautiful in our own way and I believe it’s time to spread THAT message. In order that when the big companies come with their products to boost us, we have the confidence to accept we’re (im)perfect already.
