“Foxy Lady!” – I think that is the only part of the song that I remember – and it popped into my head as I was waiting for the photo of my “Painting a Day” ACEO card to come up on the screen. It made me think too of the response I got on facebook when I posted some photos I took of myself to commemorate my 49th birthday. I often have a distorted view of myself, never knowing if I really look okay. Sometimes I think I am downright ugly – other times I think I look pretty. I hate that part of me – worried about how I appear to others, very self-conscious. So I made sure I had my hair done nice, makeup on and complementing clothing colors and took some photos of myself to share with my family and friends. I thought it would be a good exercise in self-acceptance – and I think it was helpful to me. What took me aback was the response I got – many “liked” my photos and some actually said I looked beautiful. That felt wonderful of course. Gave me a bit of a self-esteem boost. I am going to continue to work on self-acceptance and maybe even get to where I can be seen without my makeup (yeah, right). For now though I am gonna just enjoy the thought of being a “Foxy Lady!”
