Hey, Its Okay...

Glamour Magazine always has a section called "Hey It's Okay" in every issue. This section features statements directed towards girls to let them know that its okay not to be perfect, to have those little quirks that make us who we are. In a society that is obsessed with unattainable perfection, I think these little anecdotes remind us that we're all human- and that we don't have to feel guilty every time we do something that may be a little selfish! I've compiled some of these statements from various issues and thought it would be fun to post them here. If this works out, I may post them every month. If you have any that you would like to add, please comment with them and I will add them to the next post!

Hey, It's okay...

  • flip right to the end of a book you aren't loving. No one's going to test you on it.

  • get seriously annoyed when he stops calling- even if you never liked him in the first place.

  • .. if you don't leave the house all day, just because its raining.

  • mentally count the piece of lettuce in your sandwich as one of your five-a-day.

  • glance at pictures of yourself when you were 16 and think "Ha! So much better now!"

  • .. to buy new underwear in order to avoid laundry.

  • .. to make faces at people on the other end of the telephone. It may be childish, but oh so satisfying.

  • .. to run out of toothpaste, but own eight different shades of the same color of nail polish, "just in case."

  • .. to buy more than one pair of shoes for that perfect outfit!

  • ..if you think your friend's baby looks kind of funny. (As long as you don't tell her!)

    I totally feel the same way..! I also think it is ok to buy 3 pairs of shoes, even if you 'cant afford' going out to show them off!
