Images

For some reason, I'm reflecting on images-could be it's tied into resolutions. Trying to change our image in some way or maybe it's because I got a new hairdo today. There comes that day when you wakeup-look at your hair and know it needs help-either the roots are showing or the curls are gone if you're a permanent type person. So, off to the beauty shop I went first thing and two hours later I magically have a shorter more stylish hairdo with curls. Did my husband notice? No, cause he's sick but I got the hairdo for me. Wish it were that easy to drop a few pounds from certain places on my body but it's not especially when food is so comforting and entertaining.

My hubby's sick so he's not too interested in food or anything just sleeping. His beard is growing but he's not worried about his image. I don't think men worry as much as we women do. That's why we like to go shopping to find something to wear that makes us feel better-more attractive or younger. As I look back at my holiday photos of smiling faces, I realize that a smile is probably the most important part of our image. Letting some joy or happiness into our life as we smile for the camera should teach us something. Optimism is like the fountain of youth. Depression only ages us...reason enough to find something to smile about.

Great post and very inspiring. I love new haircuts and clothes and make up! Everyone is telling me to dye my hair lighter..I am nervous though :)

How true, about smiles. I keep a photo of a Buddha statue by my computer (where frowns are often generated!) and every time I see that subtle smile, I just naturally start smiling myself and I feel. Works every time!

True...there's nothing like getting a stylish new do or outfit to make one feel a spring in heart and step!

Will we get a glimpse of your new look?

You are so right. A smile draws us right into the soul. The hair and hips are nothing when there's a bright smile!

There is nothing like getting the hair done...the roots really bug me and I went gray in my 20's. It sounds like hubby is really ill. I hope he feels better and that you don't get it Lin..
