Apparently confession is good for the soul. I feel better today. To borrow from Bill Maher, "Hey, I'm just reporting." Meaning, I was just reporting my thoughts yesterday.
What I wanted to say was how startled I am sometimes when I see myself in a mirror or window. I look my age instead of the way I picture myself based on how I feel on the inside. If I avoid my reflection, though, I can still picture myself as the younger version of myself. The better one, lol.
I do know true beauty comes from within. I think that means figuring out I'm more than just what I look like and being okay with that. It would also be a good thing to be comfortable enough to see myself as I actually look and discover that my outside already matches my inside.
I also know I have friends and family who love me and support me even if I look like a troll. Unconditional love is like that, and it never, ever gets wrinkles or gray hair. :)
Two quips before I sign off and slap on some moisturizer, lmao!
Caroline, to John Sam as we waited in Chick-Fil-A driveup: One person does all the work really fast, and the rest of them just pass it down.
Me: John Sam, do not eat Cheerios when I am making dinner.
JS: Mom, I'm STARVING!
Me: Son, you are not starving.
JS: Well, I'm something similar!
