Really? Crows Feet?

Yes, this post is going to be about me. Sorry. But, can I just take a few sentences to complain? In a previous Beauty Buzz post, I wrote about the wrinkles under my eyes. Let’s just get it out of the way and call them “crows feet.” Ever since that moment I can’t stop looking at myself in the mirror!

Am I the only one who does this?

I really need to come to terms with the fact that this is all part of the aging process. I just need to deal with it. Orrrrrr…I can be like that small percentage that runs to the plastic surgeon’s office at the mere sight of an “imperfection.” OK, that’s not me. I won’t do that. But, man! I can see why people decide to “go there.” It really does weigh on your mind after you’ve discovered a wrinkle on your face, doesn’t it?

Stupid “crows feet” making me dwell on my stupid looks. It really bugs me! I know what you’re saying…”just forget about it.” I’m seriously trying. But it doesn’t help that they’re called “crows feet.” It should be called something like “angels wings.”

Hmmmm…angels wings it is!

I’m going to go stand in front of the mirror and admire my angels wings now.

    I SO understand this. I went to Nordstroms last night and tried a new under-eye concealer. All I could see was how it sank into the lines around my eyes. Every time for the rest of the night that I looked into a mirror, that was all I could see. Now, I am blessed; I’m 46 and can pass for 30. But last night was one of those moments when I was aware of all the wrong things.

    Just keep in mind that we are all so much more aware of our own flaws, while others don’t see those things. You see the crows feet, but no one else does and, more accurately, no one else cares.

    Let me ask you this. Does it really bother you because they are there or because society has conditioned us to be bothered by them? Every second add on tv or the cosmetic isle is about reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The way I try to look at it (and I have my own issues too) is the only way you can avoid it is to not squint or smile from an early age and to have your skin pulled taunt over your bones. Personally I like to laugh and smile as I know you do — I’ve seen it in your photos. You are a beautiful woman and the creases next to your sparkling eyes reflect it. Do I not wrinkle my nose at them at times? Sure I do, and it is hard not to covet the skin of younger women but we are all at different stages in our lives and you are entering a new stage and only you can decide whether you are going to waste your mental energy on something you can’t control that ultimately adds character to your face and really is a celebration of the laughter in your life. Shake it off and have a good laugh because crow’s feet are actually kinda cute. <3
