Let’s root for them. It is for our country.
My manuscript is officially late.
I had to send a sad little pleading email to my editor who is far too nice to me. She graciously gave me until Monday to finish. As of this morning, that was three extra days. Three full 24-hour cycles.
So, naturally given this extra time I got right to work. Maybe I’ll even finish early and surprise her, I said to myself as I made my tea and settled in to create . . . well, a masterpiece. It was about seven in the morning, everything is a potential masterpiece at that hour.
I was ready, all this extra time. Fingers on home row, I typed http://www.pinterest.com. I swear to you when I looked up next it was time for lunch.
But, lest you think I’m a complete late slacker, procrastinator, second rate hack. There was value in my diversion. I found this fabulous picture and this…

Why do we always want to cover up some things on us?
Trying to hide this part of the neck, another one trying to hide her legs, another one his toes, another one trying to hide a part of their hair!
Seriously, when are we going to accept that we are not perfect, and therefore we will never be perfect?
I am pretty sure there is no one on earth that doesn’t have something they want to change on their body.
Its true that some things can be improved on our bodies, with a little more care, but seriouly, if something can’t change, just let it be. That is your uniqueness.
Who doesnt know that when all things are the same, boredom starts to come? So if we all try to resemble the perfect picture of a human being,-actually, that would never happen, as some end up putting tattoes on their bodies to create something different, others some types of piercing,others different types of clothing, we all want to stand out from the crowd. Even if not done publicly, we want to know that we are unique deep inside.
So what we end up doing is just turn in circles.
Accept that uniqueness of yours, and enjoy it actually!
Hah the funny thing is that, you will find some trending styles that resemble a feature that you had on yourself that you didnt like. For example, some people don’t have much hair on their temples, which is called thinning edges. And recently there was this tremendous trend of cutting all the hair on the temples! Funny right? Just because it is not you who did it intentionaly, it becomes a huge problem.
Another one; I am pretty sure, there was a time, where women were supposed to have very very white finger nails, and if you had nails that weren’t white, you would have to try different things to make them white! But of course, people discovered henna and they could color their nails with it to last months.
Oh oh another one, I used to read old books where a lady was supposed to have a very porcelain like white skin to be considered beautiful. I am talking about white girls here of course. Hm, what about now, if you have a very light skin, most of the times, you are considered odd. And the trend now is to have a tanned skin, how sexy is that, they say!!
So seriously, lets enjoy our uniqueness, and lets avoid saying they are imperfections, because they are perfect in their own way.
Mirror mirror, mirror on the wall
Tellin’ those lies, pointing out your flaws
That isn’t who you are
It might be hard to hear, but let me tell you dear
If you could see what I can see, I know you would believe
That isn’t who you are
There’s more to who you are
So when it’s late, you’re wide awake
Too much to take
Don’t you dare forget that in the pain
You can be brave, hear me say
I see you dressed in white
Every wrong made right
I see a rose in bloom
At the sight of you
For King & Country
Hm I don’t know where to start from.
This woman said it all, and she said all the stuff that I have in my mind, and that I can never get to form the right words to write about it. Hah, it’s true I speak about it, but I am glad I could find someone who could even speak about it, in such a beautiful way that I am sure everyone will understand her.
It is funny how people would tell you, stop bringing those subjects, stop being a feminist. But what if we do, who would promote our younger sisters, would I be in school today if nobody had talked about it?
Don’t you want your daughters later on to prosper and give a good life to your grand-children?
I loved, oh I loved every part of the video, but I loved where she said that one day, when she was going on the first day of her work, in order to be taken seriously, she dreaded what to wear. So she put on an ugly, manly suit instead of the girly skirt she wanted to wear. I loved it because I used to think like that as well, well I still do, but I am fighting it. I used to think that as a programmer, I had to have a scruffy appearance, that because I am a girl, and it will be easier to other programmers to relate to me, and because that is what other guy programmers usually wear. But recently I had the chance to study with a beautiful, and extremely intelligent girl, that would wear really girly stuff. So no kidding she inspired me. She showed me that I could embrace my femininity and still do what I am good at. No giving shit of what other people will think, cause they always do anyway.
So feminists is not only about balancing the respect between men and women, but it is also about empowering each others as women, but also your sisters if you are a man.
