With an extensive career as a super model and hit series “America’s Next Top Model,” it would be an understatement to say that Tyra Banks knows a thing or two about being beautiful.
However, Tyra continues to use her celebrity and her talk show “Tyra” to inspire women of all shapes and sizes to embrace their “Beauty Inside & Out.”
I think it is always good to see people confronting issues concerning body image because when we look in the mirror we have to embrace ourselves where we are today. We have to reject the narrow-minded ideals of beauty that are often projected and range from having the biggest “ghetto booty” to being dangerously thin as a result of anorexia or bulimia.
Even if we have things that we want to improve concerning our bodies such as loosing weight or toning up flabby areas, we should compliment ourselves on things that we enjoy about our bodies.
For example, my eyes are my favorite part of my body! What is yours? It’s not about being conceited, it’s about being comfortable in your own skin.
I’m short, thick, chocolate, intelligent, funny (at least I think I’m funny) and full of imperfections. When I look in the mirror I think, “I am beautiful!”
