I Guess What They Say Is True



I've been reorganizing our bookshelves for about a month now, trying to get us down to three in an effort to reduce the amount of crap in our former sitting area. Today while I was cleaning off a long-neglected shelf I came upon some headshots I took in '99 while I was trying to be an actor.



Long story short? I was hot! But, of course, at the time I had no idea I looked even remotely presentable. I doubt I was even wearing makeup (except for lipstick), 'cause I didn't really futz with the stuff back then. The old adage is right, we don't know what we've got 'til it's gone. (Not that I'm some hideous troll woman now. I just mean that it would be nice to have that thin face - and body - again. Ya know?)

What do you wish you had appreciated about yourself when you were younger?

What a beautiful photo. (You are still beautiful!)

I know I missed a lot of opportunities to appreciate things about myself when I was younger... The time just flew by.

Thanks, Sugar!

Yeah, time does pass up by so quickly. You think you'll get the chance to do stuff, and then you realize your window is gone. More and more I'm realizing that we have to take our moments instead of waiting for them.
