When I was checking the fashion news I encountered an interesting post about the top model Karolina Kurkova on Beauty counter blog at Style.com. It wouldn’t catch my attention so much, but I find her way of thinking very constructive and positive.
Here are some of her thoughts about models and healthy living:
“A lot of these girls don’t know how to take care of themselves. They have misconceptions that to be a size zero, you can’t eat or you can only have things that are really plain and boring. I definitely can’t live on lettuce and water! I’m very organic; I like to eat natural foods and exercise. You really have to take care of yourself from within. This was an important message for me to get across, especially when I heard that the girls were eating fried Oreos—and they wondered why their skin was so bad! When you eat well, you feel good, and that shows.”
I’m really happy that there are people from the fashion world who send out this important message: that you don’t need to starve, make sacrifices and pull yourself down with negative self talking. It’s all about healthy choices that help you grow. Especially, when you have a positive approach towards life. I don’t think you have to be slave of all organic and healthy things, cause they cannot help, if you have a negative approach to life. I think it’s important to find a balance between everything.
I also liked her thinking about life. About becoming a model she said:
“We’re in the stage where it’s not just about being beautiful or size zero. It’s about being kind and professional, and having a personality. If there is a girl who has that oomph and light, it doesn’t matter where she comes from; she will get noticed.”
In my opinion this is so true, but not just for becoming a model but for every other job; strong personality and following your heart is a winning combination.
