The older I get, the more comfortable I become with certain aspects of myself.
I used to hate my big chin, my unruly wavy-kind-of-curly it does whatever the fuck it wants hair, my olive skin…cause they all made me uncomfortable at one point in my childhood. But heck, since they ain’t going nowhere, I may as well make friends with them. Beyond having this series of make fun-able features, as a kid I also wore huge nerdy glasses (picture that combo). So as an adult, contacts became a staple to avoid reverting back to that anxious place. My world has been turned upside down since my love affair with Warby Parker began a couple of years ago though.
I’ve embraced wearing glasses once again and kind of love the way I look in them, mostly because I look just like I did as a kid when I wear them. Funny how sometimes we get to witness things run their full circle. Someday perhaps I’ll entertain you by scanning an old photo of my nerdy self as a kid so you can compare the before and after’s but until then you’ll just have to trust me when I tell you…..
