Do you often watch too much reality tv or too many films, and finally when you have eaten your very last bit of pizza and drunk your last drop of wine or coffee you face the world – and feel that your life is a little….surreal.
When you step out of your front door into ‘real world’ you wonder why people look different. Some peoples hair is just too long, too short, too untidy or too tidy. Not everyone has that perfect skin or that lovely figure you have been used to on the tv. Its because ‘normal’ isn’t airbrushed and glamorous with high end clothes. Look down at yourself or at a partner or friend – stand in front of a mirror. These are the things that are normal! In all your amazing glory, lumps and bumps. Grey bits or bald bits.
Be proud of your self, you wear your life on that lovely face and body. Each lesson learned is a fine line, each laugh and joke you have shared is a dimple and each grey hair is a late night phone call from someone to go and rescue them!
I accept myself – most of the time. As you grow older you become more accepting. And more importantly I live with reality!
