Kat's Positive Beauty Pledge

By Kittyfairy @KittyFairy
I could hardly start my Positive Beauty Pledge without doing it myself, could I? So, to give you guys a heads up as to what exactly you will have to do to receive your Positive Beauty Pledge Badge, here is my pledge (the pledge is something that you have to write, and it is completely up to you what you agree to do).
Also, a quick note, that the point of this is not to make you feel bad about yourself. The point is to take a little time to sit back and realize that we're all the same. We have our good days and we have our bad days, but that doesn't mean that we are any more or less beautiful than anyone else.
MY PLEDGE ABOUT OTHERS
I, Kat, of Kat's Beauty Reviews, promise that I will never say anything bad about someone else's appearance on my blog. I will never criticize someone else's style or dress sense, even if it isn't to my taste. I will stick to the adage that "If I don't have anything nice to say, then I won't say anything at all", and whenever someone else makes a nasty remark, I promise that I will not make any comments relating to the matter.
I promise to tell people when I think they look great, because everyone deserves to be told that they are beautiful
MY PLEDGE ABOUT MYSELF
If anyone says anything nasty about my appearance, I will take it on the chin and accept that my beauty is not to everyone's taste. Despite other people's thoughts, I believe that I am a beautiful person inside and out. 
THE BAD
Kat's Positive Beauty PledgeWhat are you doing in this picture? I'm at an Art Gallery, in Rotterdam.
Why don't you like it?
I just feel that this picture is a strong example how fat I have allowed myself to become, and I feel quite ashamed of myself for doing that.
Is there anything that you like about the picture?
I have to admit that I've been looking at this picture for a long time (as I tried to pick a picture, and as so many other girls have said about doing this pledge, it really was difficult to pick a picture for this bit!), and especially since the picture has been automatically shrunken a bit, by Blogger, I kind of feel more "accepting" I guess you can say, that (for now) I am a fat person. It's also made me realise, that yep, I am that way because of my own greed and only I can change that. It's easy to get angry at others for judging me, but really, I'm more angry at myself than anything. I have to accept that, learn from it, and move on, by actually doing something about it.
THE GOOD
Kat's Positive Beauty PledgeWhen was this picture taken?
It was taken in June 2006.
What are you doing in this picture?
As you might be able to tell from the bottle of Reef (!), I was at a party!
Why do you prefer this picture to the first one?
Ironically, I think I look good in this picture, because it was taken from an angle that was quite flattering. It's weird, because my hair is a mess (come on, it's slapped back by a headband), and I'm all rolls of fat, but above else, I look genuinely happy in this picture.
Has comparing how you feel about both of these pictures made you realize anything about how you view yourself?
It's made me realize that looking happy is really the key to being beautiful. Because, even though I don't particularly like how I look in the first picture, at least I'm smiling, and I do have fond memories of that day, which is more important, in my opinion.
I guess I just think that life is too short to be worrying about how I look, I need to be getting out and doing things I enjoy. I am never going to be a supermodel, and I don't want to be, so I'll just work a bit harder to "improve" the body that Nature gave me, and appreciate it.
Give us an example of someone that you consider to be "unconventionally" beautiful:
Kat's Positive Beauty PledgeMelanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice, from The Spice Girls).
Why do you consider her to be "unconventional"?
When I was a School, a lot of the lads considered her to be the "ugly" one, and I think the media always placed her firmly in the shadows of the other four. In the mid to late nineties, she didn't quite dress like all of the other girls either, so she certainly stood out in a way that she got a lot of flack for.
Why do you think she is beautiful?
For a start, I think that she is the most talented vocally (proven by her solo career), and I just think that she has aged so well, without needing to look superficial. She's just really grown into herself, and her own style, rather than be controlled by others. Overall, I just think that she looks fab, and is definitely the most beautiful out of all four girls (not that any of them are ugly, some of them just need to smile a bit more, for it to be seen ;))
And, I am done (thank god!), so I hereby award myself with my Positive Beauty Pledge Badge (hurrah!).
