Redefining Beauty. 美的重新诠释 Edited by Anara Emil

“It is a rare woman who can overcome her desire to remain pretty and allow herself to become beautiful.” – Robert Brault.

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” – Khalil Gibran.

“To be beautiful means to be you. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to be accepted by yourself.” – unknown.

What is “Beauty”? “Do I feel beautiful?” These are the questions that probably each of us have asked ourselves million times before.
There have always been some kind of standards for women to live up to. The perception of what is attractive and beautiful have changed throughout the time. What may seem to be beautiful today can be easily changed in a matter of time. I believe, none of us should follow any standards to define the beauty, as each of us is so unique and beautiful by our own.

My whole life I’ve been struggling with the feeling that I’m not beautiful enough. I’ve always been a girl with high Mongolian cheeks and large hips, I never liked my eyes, I hated my skin for being too oily and always thought I am not skinny enough. There was only one period of time in my life, when I became very slim, and that was only because I made myself starving for too long. But did it worth it? Did I feel happy at all? The answer is no.
I guess there wasn’t a day in my life, when I was looking at myself and think: “Girl, you are so damn beautiful today!”

You might say, it is always easier to say than actually do something, in this case accept yourself the way you are. Because we women always want to change something in our bodies. There are always some parts we never satisfied with for some reason. But just think for a minute “how much time do we actually spend criticizing instead of enjoying our little flaws?” I think life could become much happier if you start celebrating your individuality.

When my mum passed away from breast cancer, I had lingering severe depression for several years. These years seem to be the longest years of my life. I was lost and confused as never before. I realized the true feeling of loneliness, when you lose your loved and the only one. I felt like now nobody needs you, but just you. To say it was hard is to say nothing. It was the most unbearable pain one can ever go through.
However, time went by, live was passing over and I had to find strength to move forward. This is my life and I should fight for it no matter what! That moment I realized, that life never stops. There is always a chance to start over and become your own champion. I am sure my mum would tell me the same thing, if she is with me.

My message for you my dear reader here, is that the most important aspect of being beautiful is confidence. Confidence in what you do, what you think and what you believe in. Only when you feel confident in yourself, that is when you will feel truly beautiful, and it will be reflected on your outer self.
There are millions of ways how to highlight your large hips, or strong jawline, or body shape and be proud of it. This is a present of nature for you to be the only one like this in this world, be YOU! Don’t hide it, complement it!

My final beauty math will be:
Confidence + Intelligence + Smize (smiling with eyes) + Personality = BEAUTIFUL

“能够克服追求外在之美的欲望的女性是弥足珍贵的。”-Robert Brault

“美不在脸蛋上;真正的美是心灵之光。”- Khalil Gibran

“美蕴藏在你的内心。你没有必要在意别人的目光。你真正需要在意的是你自己对美的理解。”-未知

什么是“美”?我看起来美吗?对于这样的问题,我们可能早已经问了自己千万次。似乎总有一些美的标准令女性趋之若鹜。而且对于吸引力和美的理解也在不断发生变化。今天看起来是美的,明天可能相差千里。我认为,我们都不应该遵从任何所谓的对“美”的定义标准,因为每个人都是独一无二的,都有专属于自己的独特之美。

我从小到大都觉得自己不够美丽并且为此饱经烦恼。我一直以来都是这样子的:高挺的蒙古面颊,肥硕的臀部,我也从来都不喜欢我的眼睛,讨厌我的多油的皮肤,而且总是觉得自己不够苗条。我曾经有段时间变得非常瘦,但是好景不长,而且那只是因为我过度节食。然而这样真值得吗?这样我就开心了吗?答案是否定的。

我猜想我人生中从来没有一天会看着镜子里的自己这样想:“姑娘,你今天漂亮极了!”

你可能会说,说总比实际去做要容易,既然是这样,就接受你现在的样子吧。因为我们女人总是想要改变身体的某些部分。出于某些原因,总有一些部位令我们感觉到不满意。但是,试想“我们实际花在吹毛求疵,而不是欣赏包容我们自己的小缺点上的时间有多少?”我认为如果我们如果从今天开始不断鼓励称赞自己的话,我们的人生会变得更加幸福开心。

在我的母亲因乳腺癌去世之后,我患上了重度抑郁症,长达数年之久。这些年似乎过得如此地漫长。此前也从未有过如此的迷失和困惑。我真正体会到了孤独的含义,尤其是在你失去至亲的时候。我感觉没有任何人需要我,只有我孤身一身生活在世上。这样的感受绝非三言两语可以道尽。这可能就是所谓的生命无法承受之痛吧。

但是,时间总会过去,人总归要面对现实和生活,我也一定要找到前行的力量。这是我的人生,我应该努力地有所追求,无论际遇怎样的坎坷!那一刻我意识到,生命从未停滞。人生总有机会重新开始,并且做自己生命的主宰。我确信我的母亲也会告诉我这样的道理,如果她依然还在我身边的话。

我所希望向我的亲爱的读者传递这样的信息,真正的美丽源于自信。相信你所作的事情,相信自己的想法,坚定自己的信仰。只有对自己自信,方能感受到自己真正的美丽,而且这种美丽会从你的外在反映出来。

如果你有硕大的臀部或尖锐的下颚,或任何不同的体形,那么它们会很容易突显出来,不要抗拒它们,为它们感到骄傲吧。自然之美的呈现才能彰显你在这个世界中的与众不同。做你自己!不要隐藏它,赞美它吧!

我的终极美丽运算式:
自信+智慧+微笑(用眼睛微笑)+个性=美丽
