Beauty Standards

I won't lie. The hardest thing about aging as a woman is how many of us go to great lengths to cover up any signs of it. This sets women up to be hyper-critical about ourselves with regard to the normal aging process. I notice things. Wrinkles around the lips. The neck - oh dear gods - the neck! I also, in that same breath, try hard to remind myself that is this what is supposed to happen. I'll take Jamie Lee Curtis natural over Madonna plastic surgery any day. But still... It isn't easy. I acknowledge it. I process it. I learn to love myself every day. I learn to embrace my imperfections every day. This is me. No filter. No makeup. Just woke up and heading out the door. #StrongWomenFight #StrongWomenLove #StrongWomenAreNotPerfect
