This is related to my other entries but since I started my new part time job, I have been living intimately with this goal. I am supposed to wear a little makeup at least, anytime I go anywhere and this is a very foreign concept for a nature girl like me. It is definitely getting me out of my comfort zone. On the one hand I don’t like having to focus on my looks but on the other hand it is stretching me to meet new people and I particularly hope it helps me to make some girlfriends. I am being trained by a woman that I feel is a good influence on me and I am hopefully going to learn how to get out of my own way. Not to mention, it couldn’t hurt me to put SOME effort at least into presenting myself a little better. I’m beginning to realize I don’t have to wear my “I don’t give a crap” attitude like it’s a badge I earned in girlscouts. Also, I already know that my boyfriend loves me for who I am and not what I look like so I don’t have to worry about that issue. Looking a little better ends up just being something nice that I think he will appreciate. I know makeup is not necessary for him to be attracted to me so I feel more comfortable about wearing it- if that makes any sense :)

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
This is what I feel I most lack sometimes and is the reason why I end up procrastinating instead of doing something completely new that I know will make me much happier and fulfilled. That is why I want to have this goal to remind myself that I need to practice doing things that stretch my perceptions of myself. I think this goal could inadvertently help with lots of other goals too!
How ‘bout a girl who doesn’t where makeup becoming a beauty consultant as of yesterday- don’t even ask me how that happened because I’m not even sure I know myself, lol.
