Rosanna Cordoba — Babe of the Day
The fact that this beautiful immigrant says she could never be a model back home in Colombia makes us want to stand up and chant “U-S-A! U-S-A!”
Regardless of your stance on immigration, I think we can all agree that this Colombian transplant helps us live up to that whole “America the Beautiful” thing. Rosanna Cordoba moved to the States in 2013, and has since become a successful blogger, fashion designer, and model. She loves pool parties and water sports, which makes total sense because she looks incredible in the attire for said activities, as evidenced by a majority of her IG pics.
Got thinking about an old saying that I repeatedly hear in my home country. Translation is something like this: "better to go with the devil you know than with the devil you don’t," . . The more I think about it, the more I realize that this, more often than not, is a rationalization against change and a possible deviation from our happiness and/or success. I get it… change produces fear and bring instability. Change is never easy… But in it is an opportunity to rise above that which is mediocre. Mediocrity hosts the "devil we know" which is more fearful than change. I've got a lot to change & a lot to achieve !! My goal is happiness
. HONEST TALK… I have been blessed with an upper body that responds nice and quickly to the exercise. In return for that favor my genetics dictated that all my fat would be storage in my lower body, legs and butty. . I work them twice as hard (or even more than that ) compared to the rest of my body. . It takes dedication, it takes controlling my meals and it also cause disappointments when I feel I don't achieve the changes I expect in the time I planned. . I'm not saying this just so you feel sympathetic with me, but because I know there is so many of us feeling this way. . I'm in good shape, and yet I'm still hard on my self. . Today I looked at the mirror and felt uncomfortable with the size of my gluts. Took some photos hated them all, I felt ugly. . Several hours passed since and now I'm looking at this photo thinking…. . Why is that so many of us are always unsatisfied with what we have… Why for most of us it's never enough or good enough… why is it that we (mostly women) often look around, compare and feel that "SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH US", … feel that we are supposed to look in a particular way, just because the world says so. . We all need inspiration, but we shouldn't allow our goals to cause us stress or a negative perception of our own bodies. . Our biggest inspiration must be "TO BE HEALTHY", to take good care of our temple, to age living a lifestyle that will enhance our quality of life when we are elder. NEVER… be to look like "this" or "that", it shouldn't be a size. . . Some of you will criticize me for writing this, like "she doesn't know what she is talking about", because of the mistaken idea that "skinnier" people do not struggle with their self image . . I don't want to feel uncomfortable in my own skin or to be so critic of my self and I also do not want you (who feels the same way) to keep being so hard on your self. . We, all different shapes and sizes, we are all beautiful. Goal isn't to look in a particular way ! It is to be healthy. My goal is a "healthier me", And yours should be a "healthier you"
