I’m more than a piece of meat you know…and so are you!

C’mon!!  It’s time to have a major sort out here!

We are so much more than a bag of body parts but the world seems to have gotten more than a little crazy about the physical stuff. The obsession of how flat, how round, how long our ‘parts’ should be is borderline on insanity!

Isn’t it fascinating how the media  ensnare, label and contain the concept of ‘attractiveness’ to the specifications of our body parts?

Isn’t it crazy that some people are seriously influenced and believe this stuff ??!

Are we that vulnerable that we can be sucked into believing that there is a definite one-concept-fits-all ideal of attractiveness and ‘sexy’?

Our physicality is influenced so much more than by our ‘actual physical bits.’

Bodies  are miraculous!  Revere them for what they do for us and look after them accordingly. Feed them well, exercise them and take measures to be healthy. If you’re not doing that then figure out what’s going on with your self-esteem.

There is not enough focus on caring, embracing and respecting our bodies and definitely not enough on how our bodies are only part of who we are. No wonder there are so many broken hearts and unhappy relationships.

There seems to be a ridiculous misconception that ‘sexy’ is all about the body. Pffft!!!

I researched some definitions ‘sexy’ and came up with exciting, stimulating, interesting, appealing, intriguing to name but a few.  I like all those words although I couldn’t connect them to  Kim Kardashian’s brand of ‘sexy’ which includes showing her plastic infused bottom whilst standing in a rubbish bag. The rubbish bit was the only part that I could connect with. Here was a woman with big squishy plastic things inserted under her skin and then sewed in. She was inside a bag that represents where we put our stinky rubbish. Maybe she was having a laugh at all those who would ‘buy in’ to such an image.

Real attraction is a unique to ourselves.  Sexy is less about the physical and more about the brain. Just like intimacy, attractiveness develops as a relationship develops, or not.

It’s personal, it’s connected to our sexuality and it’s ours. It should not be judged, rated or berated.

The key to authentic, genuine attractiveness is most definitely a healthy self-esteem and confidence.

It has nothing to do with cup size, plastic enhancements injected or surgically placed under the skin, our age, the length of our legs. NOTHING.

Like the rest of the ‘happy-with-myself’  people on the planet I’m doing pretty well with my physical imperfections. I try to eat healthily and so far my body has managed to keep breathing for which I’m incredibly grateful for.

I try to look as best as I can when I feel like it, other times I couldn’t care a hoot. I’m keen to have fun and stay as healthy as I can.
