I have talked to people who think they are too old to take pictures. I have talked to people who don’t like the way they look. I have talked to people who think they can never change to look presentable. When you look in the mirror and you “don’t” like what you see, then you have the power to make changes. Sometimes it only takes a small alteration to enhance your features. For instance, some people will look more relaxed if they don’t tuck shirttails in. They would probably feel more relaxed as well. Some will look (and feel) better if they simply let their hair down. Some need to just take off a little bit of weight. If you don’t like the way you look then others will find reasons for not liking you as well. You should probably get a full length mirror and make a major assessment of yourself. I honestly think that every woman should have a photo shoot done as well. Photo shoots are like makeovers, but they last forever. 10 years from now you may change, but with pictures you should always have the memories of what you once were. No one can be perfect, but at least make an attempt to be “presentable to yourself.” If you cannot lose weight or exercise, then you might want to consider surgery. There are options available. You need to do something. I say all this because some people lack the courage to try something different. Some people can’t see in themselves what others see in them. There is nothing wrong with consulting with someone else on what they think would be great for you. Stop being rigid and using excuses for why you can’t change. Just do it. Your life is not over. In fact, if you can make some changes you might find that your life is just beginning. Love yourself a little more. You deserve it. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
