Seeing the Real Me

Thought for Today
Beauty – in projection and perceiving – is 99.9% attitude. – Grey Livingston

These days when I have to run out early in the morning -like to the grocery store to pick up some things- I usually forgo donning the wig, put on a little makeup and wear a scarf and baseball cap. The first few times I did this I felt self-conscious, and the looks I got from others were the sympathy looks a cancer patient might get. The looks are always accompanied by a warm smile. I soon learned to shrug off the self consciousness and greet those smiles with a cheerful one of my own.
Hair or no hair, I'm still me, and I still feel beautiful. Sometimes it's hard, but I try to project that, and hopefully help others see the real me. And though I absolutely love my wigs, it's nice not having to hide behind them. I wear wigs, but I refuse to let wigs wear me.
I am just me, and I will never stop working to better the real me, so that when people look at me, my outer appearance will radiate my inner one, despite the flaws perceived by the world.
That is all any of us can do:-)

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
