(Each day in March, I am choosing a song to inspire or anchor my blog post. I'm curating a playlist that I will share at the end of the month.)
I know there are huge, awful, unthinkable problems in the world right now. Slicing every day and finding the nugget to write about (while connecting it to a song) has led me to a topic that is rather self-centered and unimportant in the scheme of everything. It's just what's on my mind today.
I've been thinking about my eyebrows. I've been thinking they could use work. Last Sunday, I had a whole conversation with my sister about ways to improve my eyebrow game. She suggested a good waxing and then she pointed me towards an eyebrow kit. The kit is a stencil that goes above your eyebrow. You tap your brush into a colored powder and tap onto your brow. I've seen this on Instagram (Eyebrow Trio) and it looks easy and remarkable. I'm worried it will not be as easy as it looks, but I'm willing to try.
I'm also concerned about my double chin. It's an unfortunate inherited trait that extra weight becomes a thick wobble under my face. If I could vote any fat off the island, the chin fat is the first that would be booted off. And while I'm on the topic of loose hanging skin, my loose hanging discolored bags under my eyes are also discouraging.
There are some days where I just feel "unpretty" (as TLC sings). I will turn it around and focus on the things I find attractive and also the things my body can do for me each day. There is so much to be grateful for.
But the eyebrows....the chin......the undereye bags.......unpretty. (I remain optimistic that the eyebrows will be improved with my new kit!)
