What about when you have just woken up? What about before you have showered, when your eyes are still droopy with sleep? What about your daily cowlick from sleeping on your face, or the smudged makeup from the day before?
It’s not Facebook-profile-picture pretty. It’s raw I’m-just-another-human pretty. It’s just one part. It’s just me. This is who I am every day. I start out beautiful, and the steps I take from here don’t change that. Whether I skip the shower and go for some sweats, or if I choose to shave everything and wear my favorite dress and eyeshadow—- this is who I am. Every day. You will never really know me unless you know me. My Facebook profile picture doesn’t tell you much, and though this may tell you a little more… I am not just a body.
