I used to feel ugly without makeup. I used to feel ugly if I wasn’t tan. I used to wear makeup multiple shades darker than my skin color just so I could look tan to feel pretty. I’d get made fun of for how pale my skin was but I’d also get made fun of for how much makeup I wore. I felt like I could never win. I hated what I looked like without makeup and felt like I couldn’t go in public without it. I struggled so bad with self image. I was miserable. I felt trapped in my own mind.
Now I don’t feel ugly. Now I don’t feel like I need makeup. Now I don’t care if I’m tan or not. Now I feel free.
Two years ago today I was coming home from a fun trip in the mountains when I came across this little stop on the side of the road. I love how the icicles formed against the rock and the surface of the water!
I'm lucky to live in such a beautiful area! Where do you like to call home?
