Want to embarrass me? Make me take pictures of myself in a crowded park while everyone watches me like I'm crazy. That's exactly what is going on in these shots. You're looking at an embarrassed face. I can't believe I pushed through it. I usually would have seen the people and just walked away, but I didn't. It's little things like that that embarrass me. Not things like tripping in my heels, which I do a million times a day.
Another thing that embarrasses me is going out the house with no make up on. Yeah I know, very typical. Unfortunately, it's very true. I'm a nervous, self-conscious wreck. I'm a totally different person when I'm not wearing any make up. The beautiful, confident, head to the sky girl disappears and is replaced with a girl that hangs her head low, hides her face and is awkwardly shy. That's horrible right?
Well, that's how I've been for the last few days. I haven't been wearing any make up. I challenged myself to go without make up for at least 7 days. The main reason being because I'm currently suffering a horrible break out and wearing make up over it is not helping. The other is because I'm on a journey to overcoming my insecurities. My skin being at the top of the list. I don't want to feel like I always have to wear makeup to feel beautiful. I have a long road ahead of me...
P.S.- Meet Miami. My new home....for now.
