Myself, Not My Selfies

Today I got dressed really cute, in my new style that I am embracing.  I also did my make-up in a sexy fashion, and my hair in a messy natural-look.   I saw myself in the mirror and thought, “Wow, I actually look pretty good!”  Well, needless to say, I just had to take a selfie you know, document it I suppose.  I sent it to photoshop, polished it up, and sent it to Justin.  Once he said I was “lookin’ hot” I just couldn’t resist the urge to post it on FB.  Granted it was a picture I looked fairly sexy (not inappropriate of course) in, I immediately thought about what others would think.  And not along the lines of if I was pretty or not.  More like, who-does-she-think-she-is, what a narcissist, no one ever posts selfies anymore, kind of thoughts.  Needless to say it was removed after ten minutes and only one like.  So here is my new rule of social media: no emotionally driven selfies.  Actually no selfies period, yeah, that’s better.  I can look gorgeous in my own home, where only myself and my husband will enjoy it.  And that is the way it should be.  Posts like that are scrutinized, even by your own mother, let alone a jealous woman, and who wants to provoke those kind of feelings?  I certainly don’t.  I want to be liked for my heart, and what Jesus has done in my life.  Sure, I love to look and feel pretty, but self flaunting with no purpose only gets the wrong kind of attention, and bitter looks.  I want to be approachable, and seen for who I am, which is certainly much deeper than my skin.  So deep in fact most conformists consider me quite odd.  And that’s ok.  I am old enough to be comfortable in my own skin…and not take selfies.
