After reading the title, you probably thought this post is about the media….or the presidential election…or the economy….but, nope, it is not that deep!
One of my daily frustrations is that I just cannot get the whole me to look the way I want! I am one sided!

I stand in the mirror each morning to observe that only one hip is slowly dropping weight….the other one is still its round pleasingly- plump self! When I put on makeup, only one side of my face is it’s- Mary- Poppins- "practically- perfect- in- every- way" picture of perfection. The other….well, it sags, wrinkles, and just doesn’t wear makeup the same way as the other side. Rarely, does my hair look the same on both sides…no matter how hard I try!
Usually, I look at my outfit pictures and see that one side of the outfit is messed up…while the other side looks exactly how I envisioned it. Today’s picture features a polka dot bow with one tie longer than the other.
So, I give up…throw in the towel…accept reality. I will stop obsessing over the one side which is not (and never will be) perfect and focus on the positives. I will accept smiling is easier when I choose to see what is right and not what is wrong. I will not allow the one-side/off-side of me to rob my joy! When I look in the mirror, I will first look at the best and not the worst. Perhaps, the one side is the right side after all!
Have a great Thursday….keep smiling!
