Taking Her Clothes Off to Prove a Point

I used to be the woman she’s talking about. My jewelry matched my shoes, which matched my purse, which matched my outfit. EVERY day. I wore makeup so often that when I didn’t my family thought I was ill. And my obsession with highlights…Well, that’s still pretty tough to let go of.

But for the past few years, I have been trying to peel away some of those layers and be more comfortable in my own skin. Since becoming a mom, I am even more motivated. Baby Bear is only 9 months old and she’s already fascinated watching me put on makeup. I don’t want her growing up thinking that’s a necessary part of a woman’s day.

Now, am I going to say “screw it” and NEVER wear makeup or jewelry again? No. In fact, I put on a little concealer already this morning. But this video does cause me to stop and think about what changes I can make in my life.

What about you? What changes have you made?
