So my first thought was "Hey! You can't call yourself old! Because I am older than you!".
Then my second thought was "Ha...I thought I was old this weekend."
I'll show you what I mean! Oooh! Picture time:
But it's all in perspective, because when I look in the mirror, I don't see those wrinkles. I don't even see the extra fat around my waist. I look in that mirror and on most mornings I think "Looking GOOD!" I don't do this on purpose or an exercise on improving self-esteem, this is what really happens to me. I have a distorted view of myself in the mirror....but in a good way. It isn't until I see a picture of myself that I will nit-pick about what I look like. I can't be the only one who does this. But you know what? I bet everyone else looking at this picture sees a great picture of me and the baby. They don't pick it apart like I do.
I forget where I saw or read it, but somebody once said something about high-fiving themselves in the mirror. I think that's a great idea. I think when you look in the mirror, you should say "Looking good!" and give yourself a high five. Put on that big smile and go start the day. And I think we should do the same for pictures. No matter what our shape, size or age, let's say "Looking good!" and then feel better about ourselves.
Because a good attitude can make anyone look good....after all...I see old, but you all see a happy mom and baby who are both beaming with happiness.
That attitude/mood/smile makes everyone look good doesn't it? :)
