{Self-Portrait} Glasses

I have worn glasses for more than two-thirds of my life. And it has taken all of that time to finally feel comfortable with them on my face. I am not talking about a literal comfort but an acceptance in my heart that I was wearing my imperfections as one of the first things people see. These days, when my physical imperfections (as measured by society/media) have started to take over, my almost total lack of eyesight seems to fall behind on my list of things to worry about. So, my glasses have been a more permanent fixture on my face and they have started to feel like me.

In my yearly goals, I made a goal to try to get myself in front of the camera more often. Thanks to the IPad's front facing camera (and, um, Instagram's ability to hide other imperfections), I am committing to making that goal a reality...

A girl after my own heart! I've worn glasses since I was 10, and I actually can't even visualize myself without them on my face.

Love it! Though I only wear mine for distance, my glasses look a lot like yours. I think ladies who wear glasses are lovely, no matter what Dorothy Parker had to say about it!
