I had to giggle this weekend while reading Bossypants by Tina Fey. She included a list of attributes women must have to qualify as beautiful in our modern age.
She writes, “Now every girl is expected to have:
- Caucasian blue eyes
- full Spanish Lips
- a classic button nose
- hairless skin with a California tan
- a Jamaican dance hall ass
- long Swedish legs
- small Japanese feet
- the abs of a nine year old boy
- the arms of Michelle Obama
- and doll tits
The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes. Everyone else is struggling.”
She then went on to list the healthy body parts for which she is grateful. While that is a difficult task for most of us, it is probably the healthiest thing you could do for yourself today. Why not give it a try?
PS. Also loved this message I saw recently! Had to share it. Going to repeat this to myself everyday this week. I may even write some of it on my bathroom mirror with a dry erase marker. (Thanks, Becky!)
