She shared the video about moms and daughters taking selfies. It was about a project to help younger and older women accept their perceived faults as attributes of beauty. So watch the video and use the word selfie as a prompt, she suggested.
Asymmetry, one eye hooded, one deeper set. Wrinkles. Floppy neck. Sparse eye lashes and eye brows. Crazy hair. Mustache. I don’t even know where to begin with that nose. Crooked second incisor. Scars. Love handles. Bunion. Varicose veins. Chin hairs.
With this body and with this face I inspire and encourage students to work hard and succeed. I am loving my son and daughter. I am engaged in incredible friendships. I attracted the love of an amazing man. I run races. I practice yoga. I dance and dream and write. With this body and this face I find determination and passion and strength. Heads turn towards me and gazes follow me.
Am I beautiful? Yup. You bet.
