Best version of you

I’ve started writing for BodyMindSoul Mag a few months ago. In contrast to the largely negative tone of mass media and social media these days, BodyMindSoul aims to spread good vibes, encourage a positive outlook and promote a happy and healthy lifestyle.

My poem ‘Best version of you’ was published in Vol. 12 of the magazine. It is a poem intended to promote positive body image among females, but perhaps a few males here and there can identify with its message too. Beauty and fashion magazines, advertisements and the like show us photoshoped and airbrushed photos of impossible perfection, and that has made impressionable people dissatisfied and even depressed with their less-than-perfect looks and bodies.

The message in the poem is that we are the best version of us, because every person is unique and no two are the same. We should appreciate and love ourselves more and not compare ourselves to the unreal and the unnatural.
