Souls wouldn't wear suits and ties, they'd wear blue jeans and sit cross-legged with a glass of red wine. ~Carrie Latet
This is me. No editing, no touch-ups, no make-up. As much as I want to love myself as I am, it is hard for me to embrace this image of me. I want to airbrush away the wrinkles, smooth away the dark spots, add some mascara and lip gloss. But that is superficial fluff.
I have skin imperfections. I have wrinkles. My lips are chapped. My hair can be a wild mess. Sometimes I have crap stuck in my teeth. I am rough around the edges. I talk too loud. I laugh too loud. I give out a lot of un-asked for advice. I think ugly things about people people that annoy me.
This is me. Laid bare. My beauty and worth come from some place deeper than my skin. I have to believe that as I look at myself.
