We Really Need To Start Believing We Are Beautiful.

Imagine your reaction when someone points a camera at your face. You watch as the flash goes off. You panic, you duck your head, throw a hand up, and delete it after you see it.
We walk around blind, unable to see our own beauty and even worse, unable to believe it when others call us beautiful.
We feel awkward, we look away, we cover our face because we are afraid if anyone looks too close they will realize they were wrong, our flaws shinning though even the most artfully applied make up.
But thankfully 18-year-old student Shea Glover made it her mission to capture just how beautiful people are...the second they are told they are beautiful. Check out the amazing results below.
I don't know about you but this video had me smiling the entire time.
And it also made me wonder why we don't tell each other every day that we are beautiful. Or even more importantly, why we can't tell the mirror that.

So please don't ever forget, You Are Absolutely Beautiful.

Happiness Is Not One Size Fits All; Fat Shamming is Real
We live in a world where no women can live her life without being shamed because she is fat, skinny, tall, short, flat chested or rocking triple E's. So you would think that women would unite together, say screw the impossible standards that our bodies are scrutinized under and support each other, right? Too bad the support ends once people (who aren't ever health care professionals) deem a human being too "unhealthy" and "obese" for common human decency. And that my friends is what we call fat shaming. Fat Shaming [noun] : the unkind and usually public criticism of someone for being overweight. Recently comedian Nicole Arbour posted a video entitled "Dear Fat People" in which she claims fat shaming doesn't exist, compares fat people to Frankenstein, says she can outrun fat people by just walking, and even makes some racial slurs about curvy black women in their sunday best. I'm sorry but WHAT?! This hateful, public video criticizing and making fun of fat people is the very definition of fat shaming and if you don't believe me see above definition. Unfortunately this video has racked up more than 18 million views and 177,000 likes on Facebook alone. Luckily body positive super star and TLC's very own Whitney Thore from My Big Fat Beautiful Life has come to the rescue of insecure women everywhere who don't find anything funny in this fat shaming, cyber bulling video attempting to be passed off as comedy. Check out her perfect response video here and watch her flawlessly shred every single cruel statement Arbour made. Thore's response has more than 10.2 million views and nearly 180,000 likes on Facebook and counting! I will share this video till forever. But seriously, here are 3 very important things to come out of this video! 1. Thore makes comments on the fact that while heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety and depression are all prevalent in over weight people, they are just as common in skinny people! You can not tell someone's health just by looking at them! 2. She admits that she once suffered from an eating disorder. What confuses me is that Arbour would never criticize someone with an eating disorder however the shaming begins once healthy isn't the correct size for her. 3. And this is the most important...Arbour seems to be delusional if she thinks that calling out fat people to "motivate them", will kick start them into losing weight. To bad Thore has don't the research. Studies show fat shaming and "funny videos motivating fat people" (eye roll), do the opposite of motivate. In fact videos like these will lead so many women and men alike to feel even more insecure, afraid to go to the gym for fear of judgement, and push them further into unhealthy physical and mental lifestyles. So think about that before finding body shaming of any kind funny, because you might have one person laughing at the joke but you will force way more people then that further into recluse. Thankfully we have body positive superstars like Whitney Thore there to remind everyone that she loves them and they are perfect and beautiful and that happiness isn't reserved for a certain size waist. All I can say is a very eloquent Fuck Off to Nicole Arbour. You are not a comedian, and that video you posted is cyber bullying and will do more harm then your comedy will ever do good. Oh, and she isn't sorry at all about what she said. She makes that quite clear.

In light of the tragedy in Orlando, I want to make sure that everyone in this community regardless of your sexual orientation, your religious beliefs, or your political opinions, knows that you're loved. Everyone deserves to love and be loved, to live their lives how they wish, and to feel safe being themselves. Here are a few songs of encouragement, and I hope that anyone affected (which, really, should be all Americans) find peace. Amber - Borders Stand up, fall down, up again Up against the pressure I am in Slowly but surely I begin Jumping trains โ€˜cause I know I can win I know thereโ€™s a plan So thick the fog but I know I can trust The feelings that I feel when the roads rough Park Jungmin - Not Alone I can believe Iโ€™m not alone Not alone now, not sad anymore and I can feel it Iโ€™m not alone Definitely not alone, never be exhausted again Song Jieun - Don't Look At Me Like That Donโ€™t look at me like that Weโ€™re just in love, thatโ€™s all Donโ€™t hate on us, however youโ€™re viewing us Weโ€™re just a little different Just leave us alone Canโ€™t we live in a world where time stands still?

Beauty Tips That Should Be Taught...But Aren't.
I am so sick of opening a magazine and being bombarded with all the ways to make myself beautiful. Now, I am not one to wear that much makeup (mostly because I am terrible at it and people that can make ombre lips are artists), but its hard not to feel out of place and less attractive when you aren't in a full face and cute shoes. But lets be real, beauty tips are awesome and weight loss tips are usually a lie, but here are some REAL LIFE BEAUTY TIPS that every person should know before they start dabbling in the make up and fashion world. And for some reason, no magazine is teaching them. 1. No size is the Wrong Size Everyones body is different and yet, everyone is still just as beautiful as the next person! So keep that in mind before you try and squeeze yourself into the size you think is the "beautiful size", because I know we all have that one number in our head. Reaching your goal size will not make everything perfect, because you already are perfect. 2. With or without make up you look great! The make up debate is stupid and needs to stop. If you wear make up because you feel more comfortable or just love putting it on then rock it! If you hate make up you still look amazing. There is no reason make up should be that big of an issue and there is no reason someone should feel uncomfortable even going to the bathroom without it on. Have confidence in your face and everyone around you will notice how awesome you look. 3. Dress to your comfort! And I don't just mean sweats, although I'm wearing some now and love every second of my life. When you go out dress in an outfit that will ensure you having the most fun! If you like short skirts, go for it. If you hate heels, don't wear them! There is absolutely no reason why you should feel uncomfortable all night because for some reason society teaches that you have to impress drunk strangers. 4. Loose, black clothing doesn't have to be the only thing you wear to "slim you down." One of the most amazing parts of the body positivity movement includes plus sizes women posting pictures of themselves looking AMAZING in patterns, bright colors, and crop tops and the results are AMAZING! Black should be tossed to the side in favor of some eye catching outfits because you are beautiful and deserve to be in the spot light. FYI Thats Tess Holliday and she is perfection. 5. Confidence is all that matters! If you are confident in how you look, no matter what, you will radiate energy! Your confidence is what will attract people to you and thats what gets you friends and loved ones, not your looks. So keep that in mind because your mom is right, what's on the inside is what matters the most.
Pixar changed multiple scenes in 'Inside Out' to cater to International Audiences
What you see depends on the country you live in. If you walk into a movie theater somewhere else in the world, Pixar's 'Inside Out' may look a little different from the American version you saw back at home. From the food to the sports to the cultural mannerisms, some things are slightly different. Pixar created 28 graphics for 45 uniquely different shots to be inserted for local audiences. So far Pixar has made over $553 million to date spanning multiple countries across the world. Director Pete Docter said they wanted the film to remain complex and emotional while making sense with the foreign audience's culture. Sometimes Pixar films aren't strictly perfect domestically so they make some tweaks to create the best product. This isn't the first company to change it's movie for a foreign audience. Marvel with "Iron Man 3" added scenes for Chinese audiences to incorporate Gu Li Duo, a popular Chinese milk drink, and a scene where Iron Man is saved by a famous Chinese character. In Adam Sandler's "Pixels", a scene was taken out so that Chinese audiences would not see the Great Wall of China destroyed. As you can see, your country has a huge influence. Doctor said for 'Inside Out', โ€œWe learned that some of our content wouldnโ€™t make sense in other countries. For example, in Japan, broccoli is not considered gross. Kids love it. So we asked them, โ€˜Whatโ€™s gross to you?โ€™ They said green bell peppers, so we remodeled and reanimated three separate scenes replacing our broccoli with green peppers.โ€ In this scene, Riley's dad is having a hard time getting her to eat broccoli. She squirms and turns away in disgust as he continuously attempts to have her eat it. In the United States, it is a normal thing for a child to dislike broccoli. But in Japan, broccoli is substituted by bell peppers since Japanese children think those are gross instead. That slight cultural difference changed an entire scene in the film to be more relatable and to evoke EMOTION. Though Hockey is traditionally a Canadian pastime, Hockey is still largely popular in the northern parts of the United States such as US state, Minnesota. Hockey is still just as American for many people however most of the world isn't exposed to hockey frequently which is why Pixar changed it to soccer. Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Docter also mentioned,โ€œWe offered a version with soccer instead of hockey since soccer is huge in so many parts of the world. But some countries that are into soccer actually decided to stick with hockey since the characters in the movie are from Minnesota and it makes sense that theyโ€™d be hockey fans.โ€ Did you know that even how we read words is different in various parts of the world? Well Pixar took note of that being noted by Docter, "Bing Bong reads a sign in the film to Joy and Sadness. He points at the letters, D-A-N-G-E-R, saying โ€˜itโ€™s a shortcut.โ€™ Not only did we translate the sign, but we even went so far as to reanimate Bing Bong so that he points to the letters from right to left, instead of left to right to accommodate certain languages.โ€ Do you think it's necessary to change a movie for a foreign audience?
Minhyuk Hurt Again?
Multiple fans at a fan meet in Manila, as the video was posted by a girl there, a fan reportedly asked him if his leg was ok due to how he looked in the first couple of songs, he responded saying that he was fine. But also seen in the video at the end he bowed at his part because he knew it was obvious he in fact did hurt his right knee and was messing up during the dances. It is very painful to watch, seeing how much it hurts him.
