188/366: July 6 - No Make Up. No Touch Ups.

July 6, apart from the fact that I have erased half of my face for the sake of art, this is a photo of me without touch ups or make up.

 

It takes a long time as an adult woman to accept yourself in your entirety and to truly love yourself. I am learning to embrace it all, every strength, every flaw and to resist all the pressures society and the media push upon me.

 

I like my face. It's a happy face. Sure, it can fall victim to a hideous double chin angle and is round and long all at once. But I like it. I can see the joy in my eyes with the simple smirk in this photo, and it's that glean in the eyes that captures the happiness that radiates within me.

 

I'm in a good place right now and it feels wonderful.
