Do you ever look at a picture and think "wow, that is really how I look?"
I'm having one of those days when I just cannot get my head to wrap around how I look in pictures compared with how I look in the mirror. This isn't a bad thing, I don't think, rather a point of reflection on how I view myself and how the world views me.
I think people are like this all the time, where you see yourself someway differently than how other people view you and it is only when multiple people tell you something that you have to start taking it into consideration. I get this a lot. I get the "you're so tiny" statement come my way, but then I think to myself, "was I really that big before" and to some degree, I know I am tiny (or so I try to convince myself) but my brain hasn't caught up with my body yet.
Sometimes I think I need to be kind and remind myself that seeing myself through other people's lens' , much like looking at these pictures of myself through a camera, that it's okay to believe what I see and not to let me convince myself that my eyes are lying.
It's time that my mind catches up with reality and where I am at and be happy with that because I suppose its natural to have those days where I still feel 30 lbs heavier and its not until I put those pants on that I am brought to a simple reality.
These aren't pants, but pictures will do for today!
