Be You

    How comfortable are you with yourself and how God made you?  There is probably something about each of us that we'd like to change and some of us may even have a list.  That's okay but does it control you?  Let's face it, the twenty year old body we once had was never intended to last a lifetime.  Diane Keaton often wears gloves because our hands are often one of the first areas that shows the signs of aging.  What are you hiding and who are you trying to please?
    I asked myself that question in Kohl's on Saturday.  I saw the cutest white and blue shirt that tied in front on a mannequin. I loved it but it was sleeveless.  I don't wear sleeveless because I don't think I have the arms for it.  Are my arms any different under a long sleeved shirt?  No, they are what they are.  So after a 5 minute debate, we stripped the mannequin and I bought the shirt.
    At what age do we start to care more about what others think than what we want?  I'm still a work in progress on this subject because I haven't worn shorts in several years but I did turn a few heads with my recent blue nail polish.
    Be you, because there's not another anywhere in this world.
