... The artist is CHRIS JORDAN, the art work is entitled 'Barbie Dolls'. This master piece depicts 32,000 Barbies, equal to the number of elective breast augmentation surgeries performed...ready?! ...MONTHLY!!! That's right, monthly in the US in the year 2006...I don't have the right 2007 statistic, but I'm pretty sure the number had risen even higher each year...and 2008 who knows! Whatever it is, LENORENEVERMORE is so astounded by this statistic... is our society obsessed with perfection, perfect tummy, butts, face, breasts...perfect-perfect everything?
Surely for the few reasons people choose not to have plastic surgery, there are also one thousand and one reasons why women (or men?) elect for it. Perhaps we all deserve to like ourselves, and often that begins with liking how we see ourselves??? Is the real question perhaps; why are some people more interested in seeing some so called perfect model rather than going to the polls to vote???
Just put those statistics and numbers aside... and we can still clearly see that most of us still have low self esteem issue and are still not happy in our own skin. Perhaps we still have the ' Only If ' syndrome...if only my breasts were fuller, larger or higher then our life would be happier or better... more FANPLASTIC!!! ...then later on, we would proceed to "If only I did not have the wrinkles I would feel so much better" and so on......(remember the song, "feeling nothing more than feeeeeeling..." hee!). Honestly though, I sometimes still struggle with saying, "I am happy being me, in my own skin, I am happy with what I have..."... but I have to admit that I'm proud to say, "I am still work in progress" ...hopefully progressing to a better place where I would NOT have my priorities mixed up...yay! ...Ok vote for me to be the next elected president....heehee! Nah.... my body won't look good in those boring suits.... ooops! Well, what did I tell you... still work in progress...work in progress dear... heehee! Continue to progress, shall we...
