Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Hey everyone! So today I decided to do sort of an inspirational post. I write some pretty deep stuff on my other blog and I always get a ton of great feedback so I thought I'd try it on here and see if I got the same responce!

We all know how it feels when you don't feel like you're good enough. When it seems like there are so many other better girls out there than you and there's nothing you can do about it. Speaking from experience, yeah it sucks. It sucks when it seems like some other girl has some feature way better than you. It sucks when it seems like every single guy is going for one specific girl. It just sucks.
It makes you think that you need to change something about you. It makes you want to do something different and become a whole different person. It makes you want to be exactly like that other person. It makes you think that you need to fit specific requirements in order to fit in. You don't.
I'm here to tell you that you are you. That you were made the way you were for a reason. That you're a beautiful person inside and out. And anyone who can't see that must be blind because chicas, we're all beautiful in our own way. Maybe you're not the captain of the cheer team. Maybe you're not a size zero. Maybe you are like me and five foot one when everyone else is way taller than you. Who cares really?!
Maybe you're drum major in the school band. Good for you, that's a big job, someone's gotta do it right? Maybe you're not a size zero, being small isn't everything. Maybe you're short like me, good things come in small packages. What I'm getting at here is just do you. Don't think you ever have to change how you are. Don't think that you have to fit yourself around what everyone thinks because you don't. As long as you can look in the mirror and say 'dang I'm beautiful!' who cares what everyone else thinks?! Just be you because even though changing might seem easy, it's easier to stay yourself. Why fit in when you can stand out?
Finally, as this blog post comes to an end, make sure to smile. A smile is the most beautiful makeup a girl can wear. A smile is the best feature you have because it shows that you're happy. That you feel good. Show it off.

Well guys that's all for today! I hope this helped someone and made you smile. Make sure to check out my personal blog over at for more inspirational posts like this!!! Later chicas!!
-xxx, Dallas
