People need to rely more on their common sense. In the world that we are living today is very easy to get distracted. There is so many things going on, we are bombarded from all sides. Media is usually the most effective way of disturbing people’s lives. The worst results of media affecting population is related to promoting “beauty”.  TV commercials, social media, celebrities and especially all the reality shows are in majority cases based on how we should look and what is the standard of being beautiful.

I have been living in the UK for almost two years now. The amount of women I have seen that have completely destroyed their faces from a desperate search of looking ideal is horrendous.  These are young women who have their whole lives in front of them and they are just not happy with their image. The reason for that is probably the consistent vibe from the world, the intense pressure of perfect photos everywhere. It is sad that everybody knows that all those things are not reality but yet majority of women and men still trying to get close to that kind of perfection.

What is beauty?  Is that really something that we can categorize? Every person is unique, we all have different features and we can’t look like someone else. I think we all have one or two parts of the body that we are not quite happy with and that is very normal because nobody is perfect. And if we take care of ourselves with healthy lifestyle we can build that confidence that we need. Women I have seen are obviously bothered by many things when it comes to their faces and figure. The extents they go to have deeper issues. The inner beauty is damaged and because they have a lack of self confidence they can easily be affected by all the promoters of perfection.

I have never been against plastic surgery, botox, fillers, make-up, hair extensions, beauty tattoos and all that is available at this time. We have to take care of our body and we have to look good and feel good but at the right level. Sometimes women just go too far and just want more and more until the end result is even worse than it was at the beginning. It is important to find a limit how far to go. Sometimes you have to ask yourself is that really something that will make me happier? It is interesting that usually people don’t even notice that you have changed something unless it is so drastic that you look completely different.

Teenage girls are the most vulnerable category. They mostly experiment with make-up and of course follow all the trends out there. But they can get influenced by their mothers as well. They can get the wrong impression already from the beginning and by the time they become teenagers the lack of confidence is their best companion. And with all the pressure from the world’s idea of perfection everything can go rapidly down the hill. It is not a coincident that we have major amount of young people with severe types of depression.

Beauty is not just an image we are wearing, it is much more. Beauty is the whole package. When we love ourselves and we enjoy our body, when our mind is at peace, when we love what we do, when we are happy, that is called beauty. If you have a chance to tell people on a daily bases that they are beautiful just the way they are then there might be a big chance to save some ones future well being.

Vaccination – is it safe or not?

I recently had to vaccinate my baby. We postponed the immunisation process that should be done between two and four months. She got the vitamin K and BCG shot when she was born and at eight months the first shot for everything else. First few days looked like everything will be fine and there were no side effects but maybe a week after she started to get very sick. She had a high temperature, really bad cough, completely blocked nose and she was having difficulties to breathe. I thought that this should be a normal reaction to vaccine and that will pass shortly. I wasn’t too concerned although this was actually her first time being sick since she was born.

After a week of coughing all day and night I decided anyway to take her to the doctor just to make sure everything is ok. We left the hospital with the respirator mask for asthma. It was a bit of a shock for me because she was perfectly healthy baby and now suddenly she is suffering to breathe normally? Doctor was not concerned and advised us to use this for a week and she will get better. Everything went back to normal in a week and it was a relief for me but at the same time I started to seriously think about side effects of vaccination.

We have noticed other changes with Michelle. She was a very patient and calm baby, she carefully listened to every word I said and understood everything. After the vaccine she started to get very fussy and impatient, sometimes even aggressive and loud. I couldn’t understand really what was going on, so I tried to convince myself that we are entering a new stage of her life. Even her sleeping routine changed almost instantly. When I put her to bed she would go completely crazy, screaming and kicking with her legs and waking up many times through the night. That was a big difference from the routine we had before.

Four weeks after the first shot she got the second one. At that time I decided to really pay attention for any side effects. The cough was back which was very interesting and her mood changed even more. Some of the rashes that were healed already came back. That was for me and my husband a red flag. We started with a research and discovered many interesting things. We have listened to so many different stories how children became autistic and got different allergies, even became asthmatic. Honestly it is very difficult to understand that majority of babies nowadays have some kind of problems.

I always believed doctors when it came to vaccination and I always said that babies need to be vaccinated. Of course we don’t want our babies to get sick so we have to protect them. But do we really protect them with vaccination? I am not a scientist or a doctor but I have heard enough to decide that Michelle will not be vaccinated anymore. I had my flu and whooping cough shot as well when I was pregnant and ended up with a very bad chest infection. Never been so sick before but thankfully my body was strong enough to fight trough.

If a mother would ask me for advice now what to do, I wouldn’t say yes you have to vaccinate your child. I would suggest every mother to read about it and then decide. Don’t go in without any knowledge as I did. I know that in some countries it’s still mandatory but here in the UK we can decide. I am not a mother that is promoting the anti vaccination movement, I am just here to share my experience and my opinion. Please share your opinion about that and maybe even your own experience.
