Cellulite – the dreaded word. Almost as bad as saying the ‘F’ word in front of a child.. 🙈
I have cellulite. A lot of it. What you don’t have it? 😳 No dimpled thigh or arm? Whaat you just have dimples on your cheeks? How cute. 😐 Ok then this post is not for you. *5 to 10% of the world*. To the rest of the world, hi what’s up? Ready to talk about cellulite? Firstly, cellulite doesn’t kill. It isn’t harmful in anyway. Don’t believe me? Read this please. Now that we have it out of the way, let’s talk about why it is still treated with so much hatred by women all over the world.
I was one of them . I have told you guys
numerous times about my body issues; the biggest contributor being my thunderous thighs with cellulite all over. I was so so embarrassed of them and the sight of cellulite made me cringe. #beentheredonethat!
My cellulite defined me more than my personality. It made me so uncomfortable that I refused to wear anything short even though it was boiling outside. It made me feel extremely ugly even though my smile made hearts flutter .*ok that’s a lie but I would like to believe my crooked teeth made hearts flutter!*. It made me feel unworthy of happiness even though I had almost everything a normal person needed to be happy. My cellulite made me turn my back to fully living life..
Oh cellulite what power you have! You naughty naughty dimples.. But seriously. Why do we give so much power to something so small? Ah I think I know why. You see, since forever cellulite has been portrayed as mark of ugliness and something a perfect woman doesn’t have. Go back to the time you were a child, happily watching disney movies and dreaming of being a princess. But did any of the princesses *Cinderella, Sleeping beauty, Mulan, Pochohontas..* have cellulite
or real bodies? Ofcourse not and hence, the seed of what a perfect body is supposed to look like was subconsciously planted. As time went by, you started growing in height but the definition of a perfect woman and the perception of beauty never evolved. How could it when all we ever saw on magazines, tv and movies were women with the longest and smoothest legs, tiny waist, perky breasts, taut butt.. In short, if you did not have the body of a victoria secret model, your body was not worth loving. Period. 😑
The reality is that even the so called “perfect bodies” are not safe from scrutinization. It’s sad when there are pictures of actresses who have pretty amazing bodies splashed all over the news because their butt has some dimples. Like seriously? Is that the best use of the power of media? How can someone with a “normal” body feel comfortable when even the “perfect” bodies are not left alone? Sadly, the benchmark of beauty is the women we see on TV/magazine/ramp walks.. Anything less is just less. If you include cellulite in that picture, boom you are a disaster. Ofcourse it doesn’t mater that you are an amazingly gorgeous person in and out *not the burger places guys!*, all that matters is that you have cellulite! *sigh*
Media has done everything in it’s power to take control of our bodies and sadly, we have let them abuse us. I say enough is enough! I want all of us to wholeheartedly accept our bodies, cellulite and stretch marks included. YES, love that body. Love it with so much passion that your imperfections become your idea of perfection. Spoil your body with good food, exercise and unconditional acceptance. *dictator Monika has spoken*. But seriously your body is EVERYTHING! So why not …
Yes yes, cellulite deserves all the love. Dimple or no dimple, it’s part of us and deserves the same love and care given to our favorite body parts! Just imagine how it must be feeling with all the hatred given to it all this time..
Show off your cellulite
Girl, cellulite deserves some sunlight once in a while.. Darkness can make someone sad and depressed. Have some mercy! Go wear the shortest of short dresses and wear them with pride. *Ok maybe cold weather is not the time. but you get my point *
Do you get to choose your family? Ofcourse not. You love them with all their quirkiness and irritating habits. Cellulite is exactly/more than that. I mean it’s literally a part of you. Embrace everything you are, cellulite or no cellulite.
Please remember that you are more than cellulite, stretch marks, dark circles, pimples.. You are a wonderful being with the most magical personality. So let it shine… Listen to Rihanna when she says – shining bright like a diamond. 🙈
It’s still not truly fall. Like seriously weather god, why why why? 😑 Well, I was trying my best to believe it’s already fall and wearing warm layers. Hmmm not the best idea getting drenched in my own sweat! So I decided to not act foolish and change my dressing strategy . *Yes, fashion means cut-throat business*. Enter ..
Pair them with dresses, skirts, short, jeans.. Voila.. I am fresh as a daisy
or more like a pumpkin. I love love colored cardigans and this year, yellow in every shade has dominated my life!
