I'm no beauty queen, I'm just beautiful me.

Regardless of the fact that this song is sung by a Disney Channel star
(and let's be honest, we all love at least one show on there),
or that it may be a little cheesy,
it actually has a really good message.

Who says you're not perfect?
Who says you're not worth it?
Who says you're not pretty?
Who says you're not beautiful?

I don't believe there is one person out there who has it all.
Everybody has at least one problem with themselves.
Whether they don't like their eyebrows, their teeth, body shape, laugh, voice, ect.
We could spend hours picking apart every little thing wrong with us.
Because let's face the facts, none of us are perfect.
We aren't even close.
No matter how many things we might find that aren't exactly perfect,
There are even more things that are beautiful.
When we think of beautiful women we think of those "flawless" women on the cover of magazines.
Hate to break it to you,
But you will never look like that.
They won't ever look like that.
Because it's not real.

Stop comparing yourself to the girls on magazine covers.
Think of all the beautiful women you see every day.
The natural beautiful ones.
The ones who have had kids and didn't get their 17 year old figure back.
The ones who don't have perfect skin or hair.
The ones that you stop and take a second look at because they really are beautiful.
You are one of those women.
We all are.
And we are all beautiful.
This is the same lesson you've had in young women's every other week since you were a beehive.
The same one they teach in relief society.
There is a reason it is a repetitive lesson.
Because it's true.
Once a day look in the mirror, and instead of looking so closely at each pimple and hair out of place,
Look at the whole picture.
Look at how beautiful you really are.
Who says you can't be beautiful?
