thus far without mirrors...

I have learned that the more you try to avoid something, the more you notice it. There are reflective surfaces everywhere! It was super hard up until yesterday, but now it's starting to get easier.

I've also realized, that the less I look in the mirror, the less I care about my appearance. By Saturday, I'm going to look like a wild woman!


Plus, I keep braiding my hair because I know I can do it without looking in the mirror, so my hair is crimpy and puffy like Hermione, but not as cute as this picture.



Yes. I am going to look like another person by the end of this week. Should be fun!

I also realized, that I rely on the mirror to make sure my outfits are normal. I usually push the edge of normaility anyway, but the mirror keeps me from going completely off the wall. I love colors and patterns in my clothes, and the mirror keeps me from having TOO MUCH color and pattern. Today, my outfit is a hodge podge of missmatched patterns and colors. yup. Sorry to anyone who has to put up with my appearance for the next few days, cause I dont' have to look at it!

Week without mirrors...Here we go!



So, I started my week without mirrors today!
Saturday was one of those days that the mirror was just not my friend so I felt totally ready for this challenge. Then I woke up 10 min. before I had to be to church, and the temptation was strong. I just had to tell myself. You don't need to look at yourself just to see how tired you look. You'll still look just as tired.

Another challenge: there are so many reflective surfaces EVERYWHERE! the window of my car as I'm getting in, my computer screen as it's starting up. It takes A LOT of will power to be consistent at not looking at my reflection.

I didn't realize, just how much I look at my reflection subconsciously all the time. It's like an it's I can't scratch. This will certainly prove to be a grand adventure!
