I Am Beautiful. [edited]
So stop telling me that I'm fat or "asymmetrical" or "unusual."
The 2nd verse of "At The Ballet" from the musical A Chorus Line goes:
"Mother always said I'd be very attractive when I grew up, when I grew up. 'Different,' she said, 'with a special something and a very very personal flair.' And though I was eight or nine, though I was eight or nine, though I was eight or nine... I hated her! Now, 'different' is nice, but it sure isn't pretty. Pretty is what it's about. I never met anyone who was different who couldn't figure that out. So, 'beautiful' I'd never live to see. But it was clear, if not to her, well then, to me, that everything was beautiful at the ballet..."
That's how I feel when I sing. I feel beautiful. And I know that beautiful is something that everyone can be, something from inside... whereas pretty is manufactured and manipulated. Who needs that?
[Edit]I believe that being healthy is the most important thing. I will never be little. Right now, I know that I am overweight in an unhealthy way, so I am adjusting my lifestyle to become healthier, but I know that I will never been a slender, lithe little bit of a woman. I wouldn't want to be. I value my curves.
