If one is a greyhound, why try to look like a Pekingese?

-Dame Edith Sitwell

I won't ever be taller. My hair won't ever (naturally) have no grey again. I will forever be self-conscious about wearing glasses (and, in fact, do not wear the glasses I have) because I'm convinced my ears are situated on my head unevenly. My teeth will always be just a little crooked, and my toes (Yes. My toes.) will always be slightly pudgy no matter how thin I might happen to be.

Although there are plenty of things about my appearance that I cannot ever change--no matter how much I obsess over them--there are plenty of things that are within my control.

How much time do you spend on your appearance? How much additional time do you spend thinking about your appearance? What do you need to work to accept? What can you change? What are your beauty routines and rituals? Think and feel beautifully you today.

P.S. I know people read the blog for Trendy Tuesday. Seriously. If you add a comment to Tuesday's post you can be entered for a RAK. Add a comment or email ( to be entered.
