I watched a lovely interview with Russell Brand earlier. The misunderstood ragamuffin is really interesting to watch, he’s full of life, bursting with energy and light, really sparkly. I don’t understand why I ever disliked him. I was following the pack, the rules and regulations, and he didn’t fit. A round peg in a triangular slot that I had for guys. Seriously; he’s tattoed with long hair and a sex addict, sorry, straight away written off. I feel sorry for that person that I was, a follower, so closed minded, not spending the time to see the real person, how bright and bubbly he is. I missed the beauty of him, it makes me wonder what other beautiful things did I miss? I can see why Katy fell in love with him. He’s her very own made to fit prince Charming. It makes me wonder that maybe we all have our own made to order, custom princes, to suit our unique eccentricities and quirks, it’s a nice thought isn’t it?!
Later on then I watched another interview with the lovely Demi Lovato. My goodness she’s had a rough time. I’m sad to say, I didn’t notice, I mean I knew things were bad and she had had to go to rehab for cutting herself. But I didn’t know the extent of it; when I met her she was always so bright and cheerful, happy and excited for life. She loved London, wanted to move over when she was older. What happened to that girl? What did the world do to her to break away at her spirit? I am compassionate to her pain and her strength. It’s hard to look at her, and now see everything I didn’t notice before, its hard not to pity her, feel for her, get upset about it, then think of her little sister. Demi’s out of rehab now but who knows what will happen. She’s incredible and I wish all the best for her, she’s a beautiful person, someday I hope she realizes it.
Everyone deserves to know their worth. There’s an idiocracy in thinking it’s not okay to love yourself. You are beautiful and unique and perfect. Don’t ever think you’re not good enough or unwanted. Use Demi as an inspiration, as a reminder. You’ve got so much to live for, go listen to Katy Perry’s song Firework, or Lady Gaga’s Born This Way (although I prefer Glee’s version of Born This Way to be honest).
Take myself, I’m a curvy girl with cerebral palsy, not exactly page 3 material. But I love who I am, I know I am more than my looks, more than my disability, more than my weight. I can carry my head up high because I am me, I am beautiful and strong and perfect just the way I am. I was born this way. I know I’m here for a reason and a purpose and someday I will change the world.
We are surrounded by insecurity, low self esteem and the need to compare. I hope people like Demi, like myself and more can be lanterns to show our generation and generations to come that it doesn’t have to be that way for you. There is beauty waiting inside of you to be discovered, there lies a treasure, all you have to do is find it. Don’t be afraid of being great, the world is waiting for you.
P.S. I know you’d like to see a clip of Chord, he’s the beautiful blonde on the right. Enjoy! #
