This really has nothing to do with my post.. but I thought it would give you something to think about :)
A friend of mine posted about being comfortable in her own skin.
Not worrying about how pretty the next person looks,
but seeing her own beauty. --
This made me think about how I view myself. (Or at least how I've viewed myself in the past, I've gotten a lot better. )
It used to be.. when I looked in the mirror.. if there was any chance I'd even remotely like what I see, I'd have to have makeup on.
But now.. I'm pretty close to comfortable in my own skin.
Sure I'll see some girl whose flawless without a stitch of makeup on and think "Man... why can't I look like that?? ", but then I realize..
I am me.
I have brown curly/frizzy hair.
Pale, untanable skin.
I'm okay with that.
I love my hair.. I would be sad if it was straight.
My red cheeks are okay...besides a little powder goes a long way.
I won't have braces forever.
Pale skin is fine. I can't change it. So why stress about it?
I am beautiful!
God made me in His image.
I'm not something to be rated against another person.
Just because I know or see beautiful people doesn't mean that I'm not beautiful too.
I have my own style.
My own thoughts and beliefs.
I'm an individual.
Just how I like it.
