Project Perfect

I don't think there is any girl out there (including Hollywood celebrities and Victoria's Secret models) who is completely happy with the way they look. In this age of hardcore photo shopping, each and every one of us has this falsely made notion of perfection that we try soo soo hard to achieve. In this race towards perfection, we tend to sometimes forget that there are millions of people out there who would give anything to look the way we look. We might not be happy with the texture/color of our hair but what about someone who has gone through chemo therapy and doesn't have a single hair of his/her head? We're always trying to get rid of this pimple or that breakout on our face but what about people who are burn/assault victims?

This is where Project Perfect comes in. It's being going around Blogger and I thought I'd do one as well.


What you need to do:

1. Post a photo that you like of yourself and say in a couple of sentences why you like it.

2. State some things that you DON'T like yourself but say why others may love to be like that.
3. State 3 things that you DO like about yourself.
 
 


 
Why I like this photo?

I like this photo because it is pretty natural and casual and it was taken when I went to Bhurban for the first time!

State three things you don't like about yourself, and turn them around.

1. I have extremely thin hair, meaning they are very brittle and break easily but it really does help because I have virtually no hair on my legs and arms so I don't have to go through the torture that is waxing/shaving!

2.I have a very manly nose that I inherited from my father. Even though it doesn't show too much in the picture, it was a constant source of ridicule and names all throughout high school. A nose my size may look funny on some face but I think my facial structure with a broad forehead and comparatively high cheekbones balances it out (:

3. I have three stitches on my lips as a result of when I fell face-first in the bathroom around 10 years ago or something. I used to be very conscious of it back then but now I feel like it gives my face some personality, and you can barely see it after 10 plus years.

State three thing you like about yourself.

1. My hair color and my very pretty curls cum waves. Everyone's constantly asking me whether I dye my hair or curl my hair every morning before coming to university. I don't. It's all natural and you can't really see it in the picture but my hair goes extremelllly light in the sun, almost brownish-blone-copper something haha. Since almost everyone in Pakistan is dark haired, it makes me stand out in a good way.

2. My skin. The only issue I have with my skin are the dark circles that I have under my eyes. Other than that my skin is pretty good, not at all acne prone, doesn't react to products and is as smooth and soft as a baby's butt! Haha

3. My smile. Everyone says its the most genuine one they've come across (:

Hope you guys enjoyed this post, please leave a comment down below about what you think and feel free to do this post if it interested you enough.

Until next time, stay confident and stay beautiful!

  8. Wow, very emotional post. Thanks for bringing this topic up, we girls need to be reminded from time to time how great we are :D
    Just yesterday, I was thinking of the exact same thing, that no matter how imperfect we think we are, we should be thankful since we might have something that others don't :)

    You really have lovely hair, very surprised to know its all-natural ;)

    1. I'm glad you liked it (: Yes that was exactly the point of the post. Everyone needs a reminder every now and then.

      My hairs cut to my shoulders now since I started getting tons and tons of split ends all of a sudden and had to get most of it cut. I'm trying to get it back to the stage in this picture (:

      Haha sometimes, all natural is the best (: Thanks you SOO much for stopping by!

  11. Aaah the intro part so true makes you really wonder how ungrateful we tend to be. Always cribbing and complaining about tiny 'imperfections'. So true if one thinks of it that way one realizes how blessed and fortunate one is.

    It is such a good reminder. Every single one of us has some imperfection or the other or something we don't like about ourselves. And well taking it a step further not just physically but other than that we have so much to be grateful for. Just sparing one thought to those less fortunate than one is enough to make one shudder and at the same time makes one more thankful for what one has.

    And you look lovely in that picture MashAllah!! And I LOVEDDD how you took every imperfection and turned it around!! That is possible with each one of us and with each supposed imperfection we have.

    See now the naturally wavy hair and the light brown shade and amazing skin is something I so envy!! And I never realized a nose can be masculine or feminine lol yours looks perfectly proportionate to the rest of your face!! And your smile is definitely very endearing! :)
