Body Positivity: Beauty Marks

Beauty marks are marks, scars, bruises, moles, etc. that makes us individually unique and special in our own ways. It’s our way to show people that we have our marks to make us who we are. Some marks have stories behind them, especially permanent scaring. For example, I have a white birth mark that is about the size of a quarter on my stomach next to my belly button. I’ve had it my whole life as far as I know and I love it. It makes me unique and special because I have yet to see or meet someone with the same kind of birth mark as I have. Playing sports, I have acquired a permanent scar on my upper back thigh near my butt cheek. I love that scar because its a discoloration on my skin and it makes people wonder what had happened. Although it was just from many years of sliding on the ground. Even pigmentation’s are beautiful! To have that unique feature is what makes you extra beautiful and special in your own way. I had a former soccer teammate and she had burn marks from an accident she was in. They were so cool to look at and to learn her story about how she got them. I have a friend of mine, he has two scars on both of his arms that are super cool in my opinion to look at. He got them from an accident he went through as a kid on his motor bikes. Even simply coloring your hair is a representation of a beauty mark because it’s your hair that naturally grows on your body. You can color it, style it, do whatever you want to it because it represents you and your own style. Having freckles is beautiful! My mom and sister both have freckles and sometimes I’m jealous of them because I wish I could have freckles without having to draw them on or use makeup to make them. I had a mole on my neck and it never really bothered me to the point to get it removed. Unfortunately it’s gone now because of an idiot decision I made, but we all live and we learn. Loving our marks will make us happier with ourselves and what we look like. It’s a huge self confidence booster. I’ve noticed that ever since I’ve been able to accept myself for the way I am, I shine with confidence and joy. If you ever catch me in public I’m usually smiling, glowing with confidence, and always positive to be around. Sometimes we cant change marks on our bodies. For example, tattoos. Sometimes we regret the things we put on our bodies , from tattoos to even some piercings. However, we learn from these experiences. I’ve watched some shows where these people get some ridiculous tattoos. Some have their ex’s name or a picture of someone to name a few. They go into tattoo parlors to get them fixed. If you’re going to get some permanent as that, make sure you’re 100% on board with it. Even getting a piercing. For example, some people enjoy getting face piercings. That’s them expressing their own unique individuality. Even stretch marks of all kinds are gorgeous. It represents our paths of life. I have a lot on my lower half of my body and it surprises me at first when I get a stretch mark, but I love them. It’s showing me that my body is changing for the best. Even having stretch marks from carrying a baby is beautiful! You carried a living being inside of you. Embrace those marks. Show the world how beautiful you really are, especially after having a baby. Having a massive weight lost and looking at the stretch marks you had, can really have a powerful meaning. You came so far from where you were before. Show off your smoking body! Strut your stuff. I know after losing about 10 pounds I feel so much more confident and comfortable in my own skin. Embrace your own unique self! There isn’t anything more sexy or attractive than a confident person! Self love is the best kind of love there is out there 🙂
