#microblogmonday: my story

I don’t wear makeup. I never have — at least not for anything other than special occasions. I’ve never cared enough to bother.

Lately, I’ve noticed the darkening of the circles under my eyes, the density of the freckles on my nose, the glistening of my forehead, and the blemishes that dot my chin. They are all I see when I look in the mirror.

They are my story.

And sometimes, I wonder if it would be better to cover it than to leave it exposed.

  1. I also don’t wear makeup. I’m going through similar feelings with my grey hair. Cover it up or let it keep going grey. It’s all I see when I look in the mirror.

  2. I wear makeup most work days. I don’t even know why I bother but it makes me feel like I look less tired even though, when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I know it doesn’t. The amount of makeup I wear is laughably small. I only wear it for me, though. So, it really doesn’t matter if it is all in my head. 🙂

    When my husband started lamenting the circles under his eyes I realized that I can’t even see his and it’s all he sees in the mirror.
