Four years ago I began blogging. I hadn't even realized it until Beth of I'm Heading Towards My Destiny wrote a post celebrating her four year blogoversary. I checked the archives of Heart Choices and realized that my first post was on March 16, 2007 .
Some of my early posts were about beauty . I was concerned as I saw young girls trying to look like the models in the magazines. I had seen a short video produced by Dove.
So many unrealistic expectations on women, including me!
Now that I have turned 58, it's much harder to keep up the outward looks. When I look in the mirror, I wonder who that person is sometimes. Inside I feel one way but outside ...I look different.
As a Christian, it's what's inside that is most important. I know that! I don't judge others by their looks. And yet, I find I'm very critical of myself.
My friend Jill of Forever N Ever N Always created an I AM BEAUTIFUL project. She is challenging women from all over to join in. I encourage you to link over and read all about it. I still haven't posted my photo but ... I will.
