1 Real Woman, 18 photoshopped versions based on cultural preferences. Lesson learned: You’re Beautiful. Period.
We’re all one-of-a-kind, never to be repeated or replaced beings. Don’t be bothered by “standards” which are always changing and never satisfied.
If we want to work on/filter anything, let it be our Kindness and Love. That never goes out of style and does a world of good. Literally.

Thanks so much for sharing this reflection, Lori! Indeed, if we don’t have to “doubt or guess or “hope” for approval” that does bring Peace! I think of a soul weaned…
Liefs! (thats: with love, pronounced “leafs”, in Dutch)
Intriguing study! When you try to please “Man”, you will always fail – because Man is not constant. Thank heaven that God is constant and doesn’t change! I can know exactly how to please Him, I don’t have to doubt or guess or “hope” for approval without really knowing where I stand. What peace that brings!
