ever have a time when you come across women you knew back when and they were 'haughty, disdainful' towards you due to the differences in income level? (and i'm talking about stay-at-home moms!) then time passes and lo and behold, they are still straightening, vigorously coloring their hair to get rid of curls/waves/gray hair and it looks like straw, their faces look harsh against the unreal color of their hair? who looks good with a harsh color against your face and straw on your head?
well, i did yesterday and it was great! normal hair day for me, curly, soft, shiny, complimenting my complexion..... while no words were exchanged, none had to be, the message came across! :-) and it was in a venue where money was obvious, i was there to purchase one small basic, and what they were there for, dropping buckets of money.
i like who i am, what i am about and my kids are same, so it never made me feel bad, just something i observed and never thought about unless they were in front of me, but yesterday it made me feel GOOD! i am going with nature and came out far ahead, and the only contest is in their heads. the look on their faces as they kept glancing my way said it all.....

Sing it, sister! I totally agree! I look at some of the people in my life who spend so much money on their artificial beauty enhancements (botox, hair dye, day-glo teeth whitening, etc.) and they just look like they are really s-t-r-a-i-n-i-n-g to hang onto "youth". But they don't look healthy or at peace with how they look. I'm just going to keep on doing what I do (or don't do, compared to them.) To each her own.

We live in a society that is obsessed with consuming, and looking "forever young". Its really very oppressive.
Yep, yep, yep... People are so obsessed with their appearance. Trying to stuff themselves into a mold that society says they should fit into. I'm all about embracing yourself the way God made you! I'm a curvy girl with silver hair, and I like myself the way I am!
Sorry if I slightly altered the course of this thread...

Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you nothing about.
