В очередной раз передаю привет инженерам, на этот раз создателям панорамного рентген-аппарата. /// Sending my warmest greetings to the engineers again. This time - to the creators of the panoramic x-ray machine.
When I was in elementary school in the Midwest I was made fun of all the time for having “Asian eyes.” Kids would approach me, pull their lateral canthi toward their ears, and begin to make grotesque faces and barbaric noises while I stared in confusion at their psychotic behavior. I soon realized that they were mocking me.
For Asian-Americans, the morphology of our eyes have historically been a physical feature linked to racism, disenfranchisement, and dehumanization (i.e. the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882). Western beauty standards have altered our perception in a way that many are dissatisfied with the appearance of their eyes and believe them to be unattractive.
Stereotypes still exist, and I can’t promise that Asian-American kids being the subject of ridicule is now a thing of the past. Blepharoplasty will still probably continue to be the most common cosmetic procedure in Asia. Despite this, I hope some choose to accept themselves in the way they were made. Personally, I’ll keep my “Asian eyes,” slanted as they may be, and just keep rising to the top knowing that those kids who taunted me will probably never reach my level 💅🏼.
Had a fab night on Friday with my old mucker @d4nibeeee such a great night but clearly I'm old as I struggled to peel my face off the pillow from a late night even tho I was only on MOCKTAILS not COCKTAILS lol.. Felt like I was hungover 😕😂
I was also made up the fact I was able to get into my classic Lipsy Jumpsuit again that I never fitted into last year and couldn't even zip it up!! I love my fitness journey. I've made so many new friends in my journey whether that's been direct or indirect (to fitness) but also rekindled old friendships and made them stronger. All from now living a healthy lifestyle giving me a healthy, happy, confident mindset. I have massively improved my outlook in life, also developed strength and confidence. Appreciating life values and others more too. This isn't down to looks it's down to feelings and how my mindset is working.
Like for the first time in 12 years I went abroad on holiday with just my son. For years I put that off worrying about what others think of me being a single parent, being out my comfort zone, lack of confidence to go etc.. This year I've smashed it.. We went, loved it! Made the best memories ever! Plus met amazing 🙌🏼 people. Who became friends. The confidence and positivity isn't just me looking at my body thinking I feel good in that.. it's spread into all dimensions in my life.. I am still learning and improving. I've still areas that will be better in time..
So yeah that's just a few reasons to why I'm so focused and motivated to turn up to gym or read labels on food of their sugar contents and stay dedicated. I have love for the gym and appreciation for nutrition.
