Wrong B's




Dear Daughter,

How're you my child? What's happening in your life? All good?!

Have you reached your rebellious teenage stage where you'll be giving priority over all wrong Bs?! Butts, boobs, body and even wrong boys!

Stop obsessing over them.

You may be in that phase where you'll be wasting gallons of time in front of the mirror checking out your body and wondering why you didn't have that perfect toned butts or an hour glass. Or staring for long at the school/college beauty or some random celebrities and cursing you for not having their high cheekbones or curly thick mane or long slender limbs. Stop. Stop it right now. Stop obsessing over these mundane things.

Change your lifestyle or get some workout done if you're not happy about your body. Or else accept and start loving the whole you. But always remember it's always important to nurture a beautiful mind and character more than anything else. I and the world need a kind and good hearted human being than a gorgeous Goddess.

For one person your hair won't be perfect or your nose, for the other, your skin maybe too dark and another one may find it too fair. But what matters is your opinion about yourself. And no one, absolutely no one is worthy enough to degrade you. Always remember, no matter what the rest of the world says, you're beautiful inside out. Nurture your mind and heart and brains. That's what matters the most. 

So keep in mind,


"We begin to find and become ourselves when we notice how we are already found, already truly, entirely, wildly, messily, marvelously who we were meant to be." 

From,
Me.

  2. Yes a beautiful mind is more important than body. This is the kind of guidance all the young girls need while growing up.

  3. This has the potential for a good book. I want to send the link to my 6 granddaughters!

  4. This belief in the body and one's self worth must be instilled at a young age. Constant encouragement as well as proof that they matter, as a person, is needed. Gently telling them usually works. I hope more women become confident in who they are.

  5. I know that quote is meant for your child but trust me, in many ways it applies to me as well. I have had major body weight issues all my life - I still do - and I really wish I had these options of advice when I was younger.

  6. Lovely! Not sure a teenager will listen to this - interest in boobs, butt and boys is very natural but as you wrote - shouldn't become an obsession.

  8. They say, 'You may be the ripest, juciest and sweetest peach in the world, and yet will be someone who doesn't like peaches'! It suits so well for all of us!

  9. Great words to a daughter, it is very important for the children to understand that body is just an extension of your soul and should be considered just like that. Launching SIM Organics

  10. Good advice to a young daughter. Good heart and mind are more important. But a tough thing to understand at that age.

  15. The title intrigued me and loved it when I got to read about them. Well said, the focus should be on nurturing the heart and the mind and not on external parameters.

  16. She is always going to have to battle society's expectations so it's nice for you to tell her about acceptance regardless of what others think/believe

  17. Great advice! To embrace and love your body is so important. And yes, when you talk about wrong B's, you have to talk about wrong boys! ;)
