Vanity is my favorite sin

Since the dawn of ancient times man has searched for the fountain of youth. Referred to as a legendary spring that is suppose to restore youth of anyone who drinks from it. During the ancient times Herodotus mentions a fountain that is responsible for the Ethiopians exceptional life span. Its legend grew and has been mentioned from the exploits of Alexander the great to the gospel of John in the bible. Although widely popularized by the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce De Leon and several Hollywood films.

We can’t deny that it is in man’s inherent desire to preserve its youth and beauty. This obsession gave birth to plastic surgery. Most common of which are the cosmetic procedures which adheres more towards the aesthetic improvement.

I think I speak for everyone when I say that none of us are born happy in our own skin. We all have insecurities that is eating us alive. It’s either too big this or too small that! We all whine about our own little imperfections. Shallow as it may seem but quite true.

Society dictates the perfect standards thru over exposure of the media on Hollywood celebrities. They make us typical humans feel lowly life forms compared to their perfectly chiseled features. This in turn makes the plastic surgery industry a billion dollar empire.

A friend told me that liposuction is the top ranking surgical procedure among men. Yes you heard me right, men! Men who are supposed to be carefree and non-critical about their looks. Those days are gone! We have finally evolved to civilized and presentable primates.

What about women you ask? Well take a wild guess. If you said breast enlargement then you’re right on the money. It’s a no brainer, women are as critical to their breasts as men is to their penis. Always conscious with the size and contrary to popular belief, size does matter.

If there is in fact a final judgment as the bible says, I’ll bet that half of the world’s population will be subject to eternal damnation. Charged with multiple counts of vanity.
