"In 20 years, you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked." ~ Mary Schmich


I saw a picture of myself the other day and started picking it apart. "I'm too this; I'm not enough that." Then I remembered the event and how much fun it was, who was there, how hard I laughed. How happy I was.


From now on, I'm practicing focusing on the fun, the love and the laughter and not what my hair looked like or how squinty my eyes get when I smile.


Because in the end, it's the love we give and receive that matters. Not what we looked like while doing ~ and being ~ the love.
