Beauty Is Subjective

On July 10, 2013 by Francesca

Hello beautiful people, and welcome to Oh! newsletter.  The place to”Discover Your Inner Beauty to Reflect Your True Self with Love.”

Today’s Oh fashion thought is “Beauty is subjective.”

Which means, it is in the mind of the individual or as the popular saying goes “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.”

So why is it so important for us to understand that beauty is subjective?

Because it allows us the freedom to decide how we want to see beauty. It also neutralizes judgment, plus it puts us in a power place of choice.

So you may wonder how does it do this?

It does this through awareness because once we realize that beauty is subjective, we understand that it is someone’s  personal opinion, as in all personal opinions, we can choose if it is our truth or not.

So we often are taught how to see beauty and fashion, and many people believe that fashion has rules.  Because of this belief of rules, it is difficult to experiment.  Because there may be a right or wrong.  But really fashion is a guideline, it is only there to help us discover who we are with ourselves and others.

For instance in 24,000 BC, when we were primitive people and lived as hunter gatherer. It is believed that the popular body was an obese figure.  Archeologist discovered a  small figurine that they named Venus of Willendorf.  It is a statue of a female with no facial features, but very enlarged bosom as well as being very plump. Art historians believe this was a reflection of abundance, fertility and health.

Over the centuries many artists have depicted women with  very large hips or a very full figured female.  This was another representation of abundance, health, wealth as well as the life to have.

Most recently, the image we have adopted has been the thinner the better.

So the question I have for you is, what is your interpretation of this image?

Is it your image of beauty?

Is it your fashion guideline?

If it is, has it been helpful?

And how does it make you feel?

And remember beauty is subjective, so it is in the eyes of the beholder.  And you are one of those beholders, so you get to choose how you want to see your beauty.
