Smile... you're beautiful!

Being a girl is such an arduous task these days! Somehow, I feel I had it easier than the ones today. Imagine a twelve year old taking up waxing sessions and the like!

Sometimes, we feel that the reed thin girls from commercials and hoardings are the epitomes of beauty and this rubs off the children. And something like that leaves an indelible impression that leads to anorexia, lack of self-esteem and depression.

So what if you have a tinge of facial hair? So what if your face has freckles? So what if you don't wax or have never been acquainted with a razor? Big deal! YOU are still beautiful... inside and out. Sure, you may not know the difference between a foundation and a concealer (I don't know myself! :P). That does not mean you're ugly. That just means you've never felt the need to use them to hide your "blemishes". Stop looking at them as blemishes and as a part of you... Beauty is all about how you feel. Not all the lipsticks, rogues, creams and lotions in the world can bring out the beauty in you as a heartfelt smile can. So, smile... take heart! You're beautiful!

On an ending note, I'd like to recall what Maya Angelou quoth,

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Too true, isn't it? ;)
