We all know that my husband is full of free advice, especially for me. Every now and then he comes out with a piece that is just right for the situation and sticks with me.
I’m young and aside from my heart I am healthy. I don’t generally look ill but there are days I feel it. Some days drying my hair exhausts me and other make up just isn’t going to happen. I make comments like, “I hope I don’t run into anyone” when I have to leave the house feeling like I don’t look my best. This is when Dan chimes in:
“Those who mind don’t matter. Those who matter don’t mind.”
He’s right. I’m trying to accept this more and more. Not only with my appearance when dropping off kids at school without make-up and my hair a little wonky but, in other areas of my life as well. I’m starting to realize if I don’t volunteer for this or that, if I don’t attend/host a party, if I stay in my PJs all day, or if my house is a wreck I need to do what is best for me.
To help me in this journey I have changed my Facebook picture to me with no make up. I took this picture last night just before we had company for dinner. I didn’t put on make up before I hosted last night.
Gotta love my hubby for keeping me in check. Our anniversary was this past Saturday and I look forward to learning and growing more as we grow old together.
Courage, dear heart. ~ C.S.Lewis
