Started the topic with a podcast to help sooth my soul. This is what happened.
Some things just creep upon you until you accept it normal. COSMETIC SURGERY!
I offhand was watching Basketball wives. I see this program as a comedy, cause the things these adult women do make me laugh. There is a woman (Tami Roman) on the show that looked familiar. After some Google searching I found that she was a part of the cast from The Real world Los Angeles. At the end of the show there were highlights of the next show in which Tami states that she wanted to have some local Liposuction. Yes she has gain a few pounds, but she is still very attractive. My thoughts were, within three months she could easily be down to, or within, her former size with diet and exercise.
This just goes to show. People would rather have their body invaded than do the work.
All around us we see movie stars and other public figures go under the knife to retain glory that once was or never had been. Big UP’s to Kelly Clarkson and Rachael Ray. This is very prevalent practice in the media world. When common folks like us see these action performed with such ease, it makes the option of invasive physical alteration acceptable to all of us.
Presently any person regardless of social status or income can find a doctor to alter perfectly good body parts for no other reason than personal desire or vanity to be something else.
This is not good. We are already under assault from images and social programming to believe we are inferior beings. This is done by attacking our external being constantly telling us we fall short of measuring up to the image presented to us. We are the Barbie and Ken society. From Brazilian waxing and Manscaping, nose jobs and vainer teeth. I remember not to long ago, if a white woman did not have round ass cheeks that was A-OK. Now cosmetic doctors can’t keep enough plastic ass cheeks in stock. That is real talk. The Buttocks is a muscle it can be developed if you feel its too small.
I think about this in the context of social programming. If you are willing to get surgery to make what already looks very acceptable. What other procedure will you endure to please someone else. Really how many times a day do you really look at yourself, you didn’t even notice that spinach in your teeth for thirty minutes the other day. People get surgery because of what they want other people to think, which will validate there own personal sense of self.
Beauty, Strength, Swagger and confidence are internal spiritual energy sources. I know for a fact I can be with the most physically beautiful woman in the universe, but if she has not confidence, personality or lady power, she is useless to me ( Sense of self). The same ideology goes for guys as well ( No I am not Gay). Yes, I know that initial attraction is based on looks for the most part, but think back on the relationships you had with someone you thought was a 9 or above….Now why are you not still with them. Because the other 91% you need from a person was not there.
I am on a path, and I hope you are too. People ask “What would Jesus Do”, and they have absolutely no idea. Jesus didn’t dye his hair. It is all about what you don’t SEE that makes you beautiful. Stop this madness.
When the powers that be tell you that everyone has to have Blue eyes and green hair, promoting it on THE VIEW, you will be in the next line to get you eye and weave transplant.
Look, all I am saying is go to your bathroom. Look in the mirror. blink your eyes, raise your eyebrow, open and close your mouth and make a few funny faces. Then smile, cause you will see in yourself what I already see. Perfect Beauty. GOD made you as the perfect you. I would really like you to take five minutes the next time you get out the shower. Take the time to study you whole body, and relish how wonderful you are as you are. If you need to trim some here and there, don’t use a doctor, use your own body to tweak itself.
JOG in place while watching a 30 minute television show 3 or 4 times a week and within two months you will than me.
I am not staunch on no elective cosmetic surgery, I know there are people who have lost weight, had accidents, and have excess skin, or have no other means to recover a part of their physical body. That surgery I can understand. But surgery for unfounded vanity, I don’t get it.
Love , Peace and SOUL!
Today was a very good day. No, I did not will the lottery, nor did I have a great epiphany. I just decided to be grateful and smile a genuine smile.
Once I started smiling, a statement came to fruition, the whole world began to smile back at me. I noticed the smiles returned to me from the man and woman at the gas station, then lady in the bank, the people at my toastmasters meeting, and the guy on the other side of the mirror.
It was the Law of reciprocity. When you begin to feel as good as I feel today, only good thing can come to you in spades.
I even did a podcast at http://emmittmuckles.com/podcast.
Remember when you feel mediocre, think of all the things you have to give thanks. Example, today you actually opened your eyes and greeted a new day, which means you have another chance to start new, or continue something better. Once that smile spreads through your core. Reap the reward.
