Day Six of My #SELFIEvaluation - Read My Lips
Yup I'm going to be writing about my lips today.
This is one that I used to be insecure about a few years back, but have really grown to love!
I used to be so nitpicky about them because my top lip is smaller than my bottom lip and man did it bug me, then someone I knew pointed it out to me, not being rude at all just that they noticed it, and that really messed with me.
Of course, I began to think that EVERYBODY on the whole planet that I encountered noticed that about my lips! Because we all do that right? When someone else notices the thing that you are insecure about, from then on we feel like everyone must notice. However, I can almost guarantee that is not factual in the least!
So what did I do? Whatever I could to make sure they did not stand out on my face. Lipstick, especially colored lipstick was completely out of the question. All I would ever put on my lips was chapstick.
I not only disliked the fact that they were disproportioned, I did not appreciate how big they were. Anytime someone asked me why I never wore color on them my response was always, "because if I do they take up my whole face and no one would notice anything else!"
Now, however, I love my lips (insert "I LOVE MY LIPS" song by Silly Songs with Larry) I have completely embraced them even in their bigness and uneven ways. I absolutely love them, and you better believe I wear bright colors on them A LOT!
I didn't have some crazy revelation one day, like man my lips are pretty sick! Nothing like that happened. Honestly, it is just when I started to see myself in a different way, and all those little things that I didn't like suddenly became not so bad to me anymore.
Maybe there is something about you that you just nitpick at and try to hide, but I want to challenge you today to stop hiding it, and let it shine! Show all it is, throw that bright red lipstick on and walk in confidence!
Read My LIPS!
