Yes, you! Come on in. Why are you peeking in so uncertainly? Gorgeous, someone lied to you. The women you see on t.v.? The ones the magazines keep telling us are the ‘most beautiful’, the ones that seem to be living the glamorous lives…they’re really not ‘real’, you know.
How many stylists do you think they have working on their hair? On their make-up? On their lips alone? How many times do you think they’ve been to the dentist to have their teeth whitened, straightened- smile perfected? How many operations do you think they’ve undergone?
How many people do you think work on choosing the perfect outfits for them to wear and highlight their figures?
And the magazines? It’s called ‘air brushed’/ photoshopped.
Gorgeous, you need to know something.
Real women have crow’s feet (wrinkles next to their eyes)..wrinkles next to their mouth. Real women have moles, stretch marks, pimples, dark circles underneath their eyes.
If they’re mothers, their shirts may contain marks of ‘baby’s’ delightful surprises (throw-up/etc.). It might not be perfectly matched- but they do what they can with what they can afford.
And real women…
Real women have eyes that crinkle, twinkle, and the wrinkles around their eyes? They only emphasize real women’ happiness and sorrows. And the dark circles underneath their eyes? It’s the marks of motherhood (no sleep); what could be more beautiful than that?
Real women have smiles that come from their heart, not from the dentist’s handiwork.
Real women- they’re real. They’re outta this world.
And they’re gorgeous.
And you’re one of them.
P.S. And real moms? Not those fake sitcom moms who wake up in make-up? As Prophet Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him) said...Paradise lies underneath their feet.
