I watched a video from Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty, watched the movie Penelope (awesome movie) and talked with women and girls about their struggles with beauty and acceptance and then....BAM!..inspiration. I am going to put up pics of me without my makeup. Some before and after action if you will. This is harder to do than I expected. I know it's silly. But putting pics up on the internet of me without makeup is just a big massive leap out of my comfort zone...but it's something I want to do. I don't want anyone commenting on how I look better without makeup because that isn't why I am doing this. It's not about that. It's about knowing what is really there and not being afraid of it. I live in the real world. It's 2009 and it's America....we have a concept of beauty that we don't even know where it came from and it's not going to change just because I put my picture up. That's ok. The point of all of this is to appreciate what God has blessed me with.
