G'Day,
The sunday scribblings prompt was a bit hard for me to think of something to write about this week. While I was laying in bed this morning I thought....

Do I have to have this face?
Do I have to have this nose?
This Skin?
This body?

Do I have to ?
Not be happy with
what nature gave me?
No.
I have to work with it
And do the best I can
With what I have.

Yes I guess that is a bit different from what everybody else has interpreted from this prompt.
I have never been the sort to want to change myself with cosmetics or had the money to change surgically if I even wanted to. But as I get older I think that the things that worry younger people, like vanity and fashion, don't apply to me anymore and I should be accepted as who I am and not by my exterior. I still sometimes think it would be nice to wear size 10 clothes and look like I belong in the crowd. Or that I should look pretty, but I accept myself and my view of what society may think I am. I have a like it or lump it attitude. I am a good person , I am loved by my loved ones. The others don't matter, Do they.

Dear Goddess May,

Excellent post!!! Thank you for sharing.

You wrote it so beautifully: "the others don't matter, do they."

You don't have to work with it or do the best you can. You just have to be great-full for the beautiful packaging and temple that your soul chose to live in.

Wishing You,
Peace & Love, Just Because,
Goddess Diana
