beau•ty (byoo-ty) | kelly from path to positive

Every week, I introduce you to a blogger who has been kind enough to share their story about a feature they love now that once brought insecurities and how they learned to love it. Together, these women will help re-define beauty in their own words and will hopefully help others feel more comfortable in their own skin because each of you are beautiful - you should feel that way everyday!

Meet today's beauty Kelly from Path to Positive.

What is your favorite feature that you didn't always love, but have learned to appreciate?

My lil elf ear.

I think I finally started liking it when my mom began telling me that my ear got stretched a bit when I was being born. 

Apparently, while she was pushing some angels grabbed a hold of my ear as a way to keep me in heaven with them. They were going to miss me too much. So she says.

What made you learn to love it?

I've come to love it through that story. Obviously, fictitious. But I just loved the idea of it. The magic behind it all.

Now I understand it's quite fun to have these little quirks.

They are what make us different and separate from the rest of the world.

There is no one else in the entire world that is like you. Pretty cool, huh?

Any advice for other beautiful women out there who struggle with being comfortable in their own skin?

Honestly, it took me a while to figure out what I was going to say.

There are so many image issues that women fight off on a daily basis. Sadly, it is all stirred by the mass media we unconsciously consume. I could've easily had said cellulite. But honestly, I may never come to terms with it. I may never love cellulite. I've been hardwired to loathe it. 

All I can say is that if you say you LOVE yourself. Then you should treat yourself accordingly. Talk about yourself in a positive light. Hug yourself. Thank yourself and in turn you will love that self of yours.
