So what if you are a little fluffy. Every body has something about themselves that they want to change, everybody does. In a recent study it was determined that 92% of young girls want to change something about the way they look. It is just part of growing up and figuring out who you are. It is ok to want to change something but it cannot define who you are.
Your weight is not who you are. There is certainly more to you than numbers on a scale. People that care about you will encourage you to loose weight because they think it is the healthy thing to do. Loosing weigh is fine but it cannot be your focus. Shift your focus to your talents and abilities.
God has created you just the way you are for a reason. Every person is given talents. Do you really and truly want to be a super model? You may have a brilliant mind. Maybe you can write stories. Maybe you are a great friend and listener. Whatever God has given you is what you must focus on. Being skinny is not all it is cracked up to be anyway. Maybe they appear to “have it all” but they don’t. Everyone has problems, even skinny people.
Measuring your self worth by your weight only stifles your creativity. Don’t buy in to the world’s view. God says you are a child of the King, Royalty. So act like it. Feel like it. Be it. God certainly knows better than the evening news. Who do you want to be, Paris Hilton? Oh come on. Nobody wants to be her, her skinny self is going to jail. What could be so great about going to rehab or jail?
Just because you are a little fluffy does not mean that you are not beautiful. Beauty is natural, whatever God gave you. If you are so concerned about your outward appearance it is ok just go with what you do have. Find your strengths and go with it.
Get a cute hair cut and show those big baby blue eyes. Get your ears pierced and wear pretty earrings. Don’t try to hide behind makeup, use makeup to define your already beautiful features.
Dress well. Don’t try to dress like Paris. Nobody can wear that stuff. Dress like you. Never wear horizontal stripes and always be clean and neat. Wear pretty colors. Find out what colors look good on you and use that. Wear darker pants than tops. Wear cute shoes, If you like pink, wear it.
Paint your nails. Wear pretty sandals in the summer. Be pretty and act pretty. Have manners and most of all, be sweet. Sweetness is a virtue that most super models do not have. Just be sweet.
Do your dreams. Never put off your life waiting to “get thin”. Just go ahead and do what you want to do. Pursue your dreams. Do what you love and the beauty will come shining through that. People are attracted to happy people. Just be happy with who you are and everything else will fall into place.
Everyone on the face of this earth has problems. Being a little fluffy is an obvious problem or so it seems to some. If you want to loose weight, fine. Eat low fat and drink water. Walk a little extra. Do what you can but do not be consumed by it. There is just no reason to waste your life worrying about your weight. Some people are heavy as kids and grow up to loose all of that. Some people are skinny as a rail as kids and grow up to have extremely wide hips. Either way, life is not about being skinny.
If shallow people make fun of your fluffiness it is because they are trying to make themselves look better. Mean people point out other people’s problems in an effort to cover up their own. I sure had rather be a little fluffy than to be a brainless boob that has to make fun of others to feel better about themselves. You be sweet—that will make you more attractive than showing your belly button. Nobody really wants to see your belly button anyway.
So what if you are a little fluffy. Be soft and sweet and your beauty will shine.
