HaRd TiMeS and InSpIrAtIoNs

It is on days that you wake up feeling depressed about the way you look, you try and find some inspiration and motivation to make your self believe you are beautiful too. A lot of my inspirations come from my mum, who although should be in a wheel chair, (as she has multiple schlorsis), she continues to battle and keep strong everyday through all her pains. I think to myself, on a bad day, that yea I know I'm fat but at least I'm not in pain every second of the day. I know it kind of sounds "clique", but she helps me in many aspects, of life and is always there for me.

But I have another inspiration, more probably fashion related. When I first discovered the beautiful Audrey Hepburn, in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" I thought she was America's dream girl, and she is, but not just for her fashion. There is a whole other aspect to Audrey, her compassion for people and the world, her strength through her hardships, her poise and elegance with the media and press. Everything about Audrey, screams to me INSPIRATIONAL!!!! Bless her soul, her favourite poem, who some mistake for her writing, helped me in my darkest times, and sometimes, when I thought there was no light at the end of the tunnel, there indeed was, after reading these words;

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,  reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.
Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the  figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

 So there you have it, truly inspirational words, which always make me think twice when I want to hate myself. It doesn't matter if your, slim, fat, curvy, hour glass, pear shaped, sticky, bony or whatever. You are woman! and YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!! No matter what anyone says, you are beautiful in every single way, and "Words can't bring us down"!!! Because we know we are better then those words!

So if your ever feeling miserable with yourself, read this poem! Print IT! Stick It in your purse, diary, car, toilet, I don't care where, but, hopefully it will help you see the Most Beautiful Person... YOU!!!

 Oh and One more thing, I Love her fashion and elegance! Isn't it beautiful?!! The Lace and her little black dress gahh it so Pretty, to dream.... "I Have a Dream....."
