I'm almost a decade late on The Hunger Game series but this past week I caught up and fell in love! One of the things that stood out to me was this conversation:
Katniss: So you're here to make me look pretty.
Cinna: I'm here to help you make an impression.
Ladies, we spend way too much time trying to keep up with and look like everybody else. Pretty is too short sighted of a goal. Thin is to short sighted of a goal. You aren't here to be desirable to the most people, you are here to make an impression! You are here to add a you sized dent on this planet we call home.
Stop fretting over the scale, or the size of your nose, thighs, or waistline. Every time society has decided what is beautiful someone comes along who is confident and changes the game! Don't try to fit your square self into a round hole. Make such an impression that you change the game!
Instead of using your time to stare in the mirror criticizing your body, put your mind and skill set to use. Create something! Invent something! Write a book! Start a revolution!
Instead of seeking to be LESS than who you are, Be MORE and don't apologize for it!
Instead of wasting time lamenting what you don't have, amaze us all with what you WERE given! Play the hand you were dealt so well that others stop and take notice, not for what you look like, but for who you are!
As Haymitch tells Peeta and Katniss, " Make sure they remember you!"
Pretty faces fade, fit bodies still age, what you create with your years on this planet and the people you effect with your individuality become your legacy. Make sure they remember you!
