Discover Your True Beauty
By: Irvina Kanarek of Lifstyle + Charity
I was just thinking, it’s pretty bizarre that I write a TRUE BEAUTY column. The name of the column itself indicates that the world is so saturated with FALSE BEAUTY that we need to designate a place where the truth can be found – weird, right? I think so.
This week I read an article that said, “Girls with eating disorders and low self-esteem spend more time watching television than girls who are secure and have a healthy confidence.” I imagine there are two ways of looking at this statistic. On one hand, you could argue that it’s the amount of media a girl consumes leads to her poor self-esteem and fuels her eating disorder. On the other hand, you could argue that her eating disorder encourages her to isolate which leads to TV watching. I can’t see which side has more points on the score board, they both seem to be losing teams. What I do know is whether or not you struggle with an eating disorder, the world is lacking TRUE BEAUTY and desperately needs your TRUE BEAUTY in it! But, here’s the catch: your TRUE BEAUTY can’t be shared if you can’t recognize it. So, what is your TRUE BEAUTY? Not sure? No sweat – I didn’t know for awhile either. TRUE BEAUTY is what you’re passionate about, it’s what gets you excited, smiling and your heart pumping. Some call it: “the desires of your heart.”
