There are some crazy facts about how the media has become such a powerful influence on us, myself included. I actually don't watch the news anymore because it is too disturbing to me. There aren't enough "smile stories" shared.
I also know how much I push myself because I don't look like those I see on television, I'm too different. I don't like what I do to myself. I don't like how I let the media's decisions on what is "pretty" or "beautiful" impact my own choices.
Yet, I'm the only one with the power to change my mind.
I'm working on it.
