How do you see yourself?
If you had to describe your face to someone who couldn't see you ...what would you say?
How do others see you?
If you had to guess how others would describe you...would your version and theirs be the same?
A few years back I attended a Mother/Daughter brunch with my then 10-year-old girl. My daughter was wearing a sweet outfit and I wore a new blouse for the occasion. I felt that I looked good. Later on I looked at pictures of myself and thought...
"UGH...I've gained so much weight"
My face seemed fuller and I thought I should have applied more makeup. I was a bit bummed at how delusional I must have been to think that a new blouse would change the fact that my body was different. I brushed away those yucky thoughts and concentrated on my darling Daughter's beautiful smile and how much fun we had sharing that day together.
Later my daughter and husband looked at the pictures on my camera and my sweet little girl said "Oh momma you look so pretty in that blouse."
You might have seen this already, but this video was sent to me by my best friend and I thought it was perfect for My weekly Artsy Fartsy Fridays post. I'm sorry it's a bit late.
