So... i've come to the conclusion that i kinda suck at blogging. How long has it been??? wow.
To kick off getting back to blogging, i'm taking the challenge of doing my very first "fast" (though i'm doing a 30 day challenge instead of the full 40)... of makeup. I'm not a HUGE makeup user, by any means. I use a general, cheapo moisturizer, foundation, concealer, eye-shadow, and mascara, and sometimes when i want to get really fancy... eye-liner. And i don't put a lot of money into it, i go to wal-mart and stick with a general brand. BUT, i'm not doing this to save money, or take a stand against any certain brand or product... i'm doing this for ME.
Let me explain.
Along with blogging, i also suck at loving ME. I avoid mirrors, cringe at videos of myself, and would MUCH rather be behind a camera than in front of one- which i think a lot of women feel! I just don't like the way i look. Not necessarily my face (actually, my face is about the only body part i don't mind), but my self-love is almost non-existent. So i am taking this challenge to get it through my head that yes, i am WONDERFULLY MADE by the same God that created the stars.
I've looked at some of those awe-inspiring photos from the Hubble Space Station, and if THOSE don't convince you there's a God, i don't know what will! So why should i not think that the same creator took as much care and love and put it into ME? He did. He made me beautiful in every way, and i need to "get" that!
So, i'm doing THIS in hopes that i will gain an appreciation for my Creator's work. This site linked explains some of the rules, and hopes.
