I'm In Love With Me

To this day one of my sisters will always tease me about my smile. She claims my ability to achieve a full smile makes me a possible serial killer. Seriously, every time she sees a picture of me she always exclaims there goes that serial killer smile. If you have siblings you know they can be the biggest teasers and haters. Sometimes they can be downright cruel but in this case, I know she is just kidding with me because smiling is not her style. She is more of a pouty beauty so grinning is not her thing like it is mine. In the beginning, it used to bother me whenever she said this and made me wonder what is wrong with society if smiling all of the time makes you look suspect, but over the years I stopped being sensitive about it because at the end of the day I'm good with it. My smile is one of my best traits and I love my well-earned laugh lines. I'm a firm believer that those lines should not be erased because they tell my story and that I have the ability to feel deeply whether it is good or bad. So, when I ran across the quote featured in today's set it inspired me. The quote was originally meant to convey the way a romantic interest makes you feel but when I read it I got something else from it. The words took on a more personal meaning and really encapsulated how I feel about myself.
Today I proudly proclaim I'm in love with me!!!

  2. Omg, siblings, what can you say! Lol! Well, I will say is that considering all you've been through and I only know a very small portion of your story, it amazes me how you still smile and find beauty in the things all around you. That you haven't allowed circumstances to make you callus, when you'd have a valid reason. I also must say that you have a gorgeous smile, too! I'm always telling you about those PERFECT pearly whites you have, haha! Thanks for sharing your inspo with us, beautiful, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

  11. I know what you mean! At first some of my co-workers used to ask "why are you laughing?" , and I replied "I'm not laughing,I'm smiling", because when I enter the office I say hi and I smile. Now they are used to it and smile back at me. Keep smiling sis! Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY
