You're cuter than you think you are
I'm trying again to post this. The snarker re-sized it for me and hopefully things will go well.
I love this picture of me now. The long silky tendrils, the right smile, not too phony. I am young and pretty.
But. When I was that age, I thought I was fat and ugly. I would look in the mirror at that girl and think, "ugh, that is just sad."
I could feel the rolls of flab and fat. I could see every imperfection on my face. I totally took my legs for granted.
I can look back five years and see how cute I was, compared to now.
So what I've been doing and suggest every woman do, is don't look back, look ahead. Pretend you're an old woman looking at the young you and realize how pretty you really are, right now.
My thanks to the snarker, who is neither Kaimi nor DKL (I know because I asked and they said no, they are not), and who very nicely helped me fix this picture to fit.
