Living in a Belong World



Friends, I battled templates and design layouts far too late into the night. But, here we are. I am sure another change will come but sometimes we have to just know when to call it. Anyway, I digress. What I do want to share is I went to the Barbie movie on the weekend and… I LOVED IT. I did not want it to end and so, I decided to create a world of our own but this one is a Belong World.


In Belong World:


Diversity is our superpower, and individuality is our fashion statement. Say goodbye to the unrealistic beauty standards of Barbie World, because here, we embrace all body types, shapes, sizes, and colours. We believe that beauty comes in infinite forms, and confidence shines brightest when you feel comfortable in your own skin.


Fashion is about self-expression and creativity, not conformity. We have a never-ending runway of styles and outfits that reflect each person's personality, passions, and interests. Every wardrobe is a masterpiece of personal expression and at the very least, you are wearing what you want just because.


Kindness is the currency of choice. Our residents understand the power of empathy, compassion, and inclusivity. We lift each other up and support one another, creating a positive and uplifting environment for everyone. Hype for everyone!


Education in Belong World is all about encouraging curiosity and embracing diverse perspectives. Our schools are filled with passionate teachers who encourage students to explore their interests and cultivate their talents.


In this magical world, there's no such thing as judgment or exclusion. We celebrate differences and recognize that each individual has something valuable to contribute. Our community thrives on the expression of different voices, ideas, and talents coming together.


So come on over to Belong World, where you can be yourself, love yourself, and celebrate the beauty that is humanity. Let's rewrite the narrative and build a world where everyone can be seen, be heard and belong!


p.s also to be added to the legislation will be mandated paid days off for birthdays, paid empathy days for those awful menstrual cramps, and free childcare


THE BARBIE MONOLOGUE


Greta Gerwig nailed this and America Ferrera Delivered. For those of you who have not seen the Barbie Movie, this is the monologues that has gone viral:


"It is literally impossible to be a woman. You are so beautiful, and so smart, and it kills me that you don't think you're good enough. Like, we have to always be extraordinary, but somehow we're always doing it wrong.You have to be thin, but not too thin. And you can never say you want to be thin. You have to say you want to be healthy, but also you have to be thin. You have to have money, but you can't ask for money because that's crass. You have to be a boss, but you can't be mean. You have to lead, but you can't squash other people's ideas. You're supposed to love being a mother, but don't talk about your kids all the damn time. You have to be a career woman but also always be looking out for other people. You have to answer for men's bad behavior, which is insane, but if you point that out, you're accused of complaining.


 You're supposed to stay pretty for men, but not so pretty that you tempt them too much or that you threaten other women because you're supposed to be a part of the sisterhood.But always stand out and always be grateful. But never forget that the system is rigged. So find a way to acknowledge that but also always be grateful. You have to never get old, never be rude, never show off, never be selfish, never fall down, never fail, never show fear, never get out of line.It's too hard! It's too contradictory and nobody gives you a medal or says thank you! And it turns out, in fact, that not only are you doing everything wrong, but also everything is your fault.I'm just so tired of watching myself and every single other woman tie herself into knots so that people will like us. And if all of that is also true for a doll just representing women, then I don't even know."
