It never ceases to amaze me.
What I find incredibly fascinating is how on one level we go to great lengths to look different and stand out in the crowd. We endure all sorts of tortures to have amazing hair styles of varying colours, shapes and sizes. We have “face furniture”, I even saw 3 studs in a chin the other day, I am sure I would be even more shocked at the ones that are not visible to the naked eye! And of course tattoos – the more outrageous the better. Not to mention stylish and unusual clothing (aren’t Brits fantastic here, individual, and have some of the best fabulous creative fashion).
But, as regards our bodies, we try and stereotype and get them the same. It does not make sense does it? For instance, and I do hope that this is not the case any more, but in my younger days you were only considered to have a “nice figure if you conformed to 36”, 24”, 36”. No wonder we baby boomers grew up with unusual body image challenges. Maybe I need to make that an “I” statement, No wonder I grew up with an unusual body image challenge – I never felt good about my body because it did not conform to the perfect body.
Nowadays it’s more a case of what stereotype silicone breasts you can get fitted, fat sucked out, or even melted out as I saw claimed in a newspaper recently; wrinkles filled in, etc etc ad nauseum. Why have we taken all this on board, why as women have we been so insecure to part with our precious money and time to think we are not good enough if we do not look younger, slimmer and better. (I wonder when this will stop and women will say “enough is enough”, because if we don’t we are just going to get more and more robotic like). Of course the media portray the beauty of thin young girls which are the fashion models, it’s not what we normal people are expected to look like. But insecurities (which of course the companies which make vast amounts of money from this play on), make us part with our money and common sense. We are outwardly enjoying being different and spending a fortune to make sure we are different. But in the case of our bodies we are spending as much as we can to conform to be the same. Is this weird or very weird?
We are different, let’s face it, our thumb prints are totally unique, our noses are different, and our bodies are …………….. (Drum roll) – You’ve guessed it, designed to be different. Can we not be proud to be different?
I think it’s time to embrace your wonderful unique you, and be proud to have what God gave you. Put everything in place for a good, strong healthy body, eat well of foods which have life force in them (the yogis call this prana), exercise well in a way that you enjoy and suits the individual you, manage your stress; and then let your individual body emerge, I like to toy with the idea of God sculpting me to be as I am. And if I am good enough for him/her/it then I’m good enough for me and anyone else who I come into contact with. “Designer body – by God” – you can’t get any better than that.
PS And sometimes the Universe has plans for us, maybe it made me tubby to begin with on purpose so that I could experience this and fulfil a role in life of helping and supporting others to heal themselves, lose unnecessary fat if THEY want to, accept themselves as they are, and love themselves as they are, and if they want to move on and learn how to do this I am given all the knowledge and wisdom to do this.
