He has a positive effect

Yesterday I posted a random picture of myself on Fet. It wasn't anything special, just me. For some reason yesterday, I really liked how I looked. So I decided to post it and use it as my avatar. One of the comments really made think.
The comment was along the lines of, "you look like that every day?" It made me giggle to myself, because I wish I did. But in all honesty, I don't. In the Summer months, I can be found sporting a ponytail. It's hot and I have thick hair, so my hair has to be off my neck.

The make-up was pretty standard, but not to the extent I went yesterday. I did double wings on my eyelids. Which I love the look of, but hate doing. They never match up just right. So I settle for just the single wing. Yesterday, some cosmic force smiled on me and everything just worked right. And I am rambling.

It made me think though, because in the past three years, my "dolling up" has slowed down. I asked Monster if he had noticed. He responded with a yeah and the comment that he ruined me. Which I disagree with completely.

Before him, I didn't have the best self-esteem. I wore make-up daily, fixed my hair, and made sure I always looked...decent. I hated looking in the mirror, but with my mask on, it was easier to do. I don't feel the need to hide behind make-up like I used to. So ruined me? No, I think he has improved me. I like the girl I see in the mirror now, bare-faced or dolled up. I can see me for the person I am, not the girl I thought I was.

Which inspired the daily question I posted in our group on Fet.

What do you see when you look in the mirror?

I dare you to answer. :P


  1. Hmmm - wonder who asked you that? You looked prettiful. Daddy says I am, but----and SsssssHHHHHHHHHHHH - no ratting me out, please - I don't feel very pretty....and it made me wonder if I should do more of that - Daddy says I always look pretty - but don't they like that when you do it?

  2. Swat's June's bottom*

    You are lovley and so is my June!

  3. I don't like looking in the mirror! I don't feel pretty a lot but there a days where I do feel really pretty and when Daddy tells me I'm pretty it does help some!

  4. There really is nothing sexier than a person that feels good about themselves. Took way too long for me to properly see myself and be appreciative of the whole package and never felt better. Well done on posting the pic - it takes courage and recently a lot of friends have jumped that confidence hurdle in the same way and how great the feel now - I wish that on everyone :)

  5. I will take this dare and post about it. See, already got me writing and we haven't even finished finding our prompts and challenges yet! lol!

    Perception, self esteem.. such wicked things they can be.

    I for one, think you're beautiful. :) xx

    1. Yay! xD I can't wait to start on those challenges!

      They are wicked things, and so easily damaged by careless people that mean something to us.

      And I think you are gorgeous xoxoxo

  6. I'm excited about them! :D

    Yes.. so very true. Couldn't have said that better myself. I'm working on this post as we speak. :)

    Awshucks, thank you beautiful. :D <3

    1. Can't wait to read it. ^_^

      So much love and hugs! Lol ♥♥♥♥♥
