About those size (double) standards then and now…

In the world of today there are several “perfection” standards. When it comes to sizes and weight, especially of women, doubtful standards are set in society. Followed by endless discussions about small size v.s. plus size. Because people and judgements about other people unfortunately go too well together. When we rewind tot the 1940s – 1950s, we see that it has always been a topic of discussion, but the standard was totally different: “curvy” v.s. small size. In other words: the world of today turned upside down.

It’s actually a cliché, but so true: you gotta work for everything worth having. Being healthy is actually a luxury today, but the good part is that you can control it yourself for about 80%. You just have to figure out what suits your lifestyle, because that’s the only way you can maintain it for a long period.

Don’t judge a book by the cover…

Trinny & Susannah. Gotta love that show for several reasons.
First of all: their way of criticism is straight to the point, but always positive.
Second: people don’t just get an transformation on the outside but also on the inside.
Third: Every person can look good with the right clothes, make-up and hairstyle
But the most important lesson: Don’t judge. Behind every person and outfit there might be a (regularly not pleasant) story. There was a reason for the “before-outfits” of those candidates.
So next time when you see a person in a… let’s say…strange outfit. Just remember there might be a reason for their appearance. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, until you know the whole story…
