We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead. – Beyonce

I couldn’t agree more with this statement. I for one, have not been very kind to myself. I think women are especially hard on themselves because of what we see in magazines and on television. We compare ourselves with the unfair because it is often edited or photo-shopped and so when we look at those picture perfects and compare them to what we see it isn’t a fair comparison. Also we need to consider that the models or celebrities may have also been altered as well or that they often starve themselves or have trainers or others in addition to their liposuction and plastic surgery. So why oh why do we look and compare ourselves? Why can’t we be happy with who we see in the reflection? Through the years we have become more obsessed with being thin and fit. I’m not trying to say we shouldn’t be healthy but I think that sometimes when we avoid things we may are missing out.

I don’t have to prove anything to anyone, I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world. I run my world. – Beyonce

I’m not trying to prove anything to anyone, I know I don’t need to. I am a survivor and everything I do proves that. I have gone through abundant trauma and treachery and yet I’m still alive and trying every day. I don’t do it for anyone but me and in memory of those that lost their lives or have yet to get away.

When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets. Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget I was here. – Beyonce

As I write I feel I have put my mark on this world, with my photography and my writing and from the knowledge of many things that I pass to anyone that is interested. I do feel that I shall not regret because I have swam in the ocean many times, I have been many places and seen many things and I’m not done yet. But even if I would leave this world today I have had many adventures.
