Ancient Times: The names of many powerful, beautiful women are still spoken of today. Their stories are legendary not only because of their beauty, but the lasting impressions they left on the world through the power they possessed
1900's, around the turn of the century, we had the full-figured Gibson Girls.
1920's the Flappers appeared who were a little thinner.
1940's, during the war years, the curves came back along with the Pin-Up Girls.
1960's women were again trying to change their image from "wife & mother" and the Stick-Thin models such as Twiggy, came on the scene.
1970's the Sexual Revolution continued and Farrah Fawcett brought us back to the fuller figure.
1980's saw us in a Prosperity cycle and Cindy Crawford appeared on the scene as one of the first supermodels. During this same time, along came the fitness craze plus the push for all-out body-building with the cry of "I want buns of steel".
1990's began the "deprived" look with Kate Moss's waif-like body leading the way until she was dethroned, for a short while, for her use of heroin.
2000's we all know where we are now...counting calories, sweating to the oldies, midnight runs, and everything else we try to work in to our schedules just so we might live up to some image of an air-brushed model or celebrity in a magazine. Guess what gals, 95% of them look just like you or me without all the makeup and the touch of the editing geek that works for the publication that took the pictures. The rest of them have gone under the knife so many times they have lost count OR they are in their teens or early 20's when we too looked as good..if not better.
Today there are so many women who go to such extremes trying to achieve society's opinion of beauty. However, if we only glance back at history we are told of beautiful women in ancient times that were so powerful that their fame still reaches out to us today. Yes, they were beautiful, but was it all skin deep? I don't think so! Were they really "beautiful" OR did they just give the illusion of beauty because they thought of themselves as beautiful and powerful. They had a inner beauty & power that transformed them into legendary figures. You can still do the same today.
Remember, there is "great power" in thought (positive & negative) and those thoughts you have about yourself are communicated to anyone you meet and may determine just how beautiful "they" think you are. We need to first look on the Inside before we even consider the Outside to determine our true worth!
