    Loved your post Kristy. You know, people speak before they think. It drives me nuts! Yet, you bring out a good point. Really it’s our own insecurities that provoke a negative reaction to a comment like the one you were given. I too HATE the camera. I take horrible pictures. But what can we do? We might as well embrace our unique selves. If we feel good, then it doesn’t matter what other think or say. Ah! That’s still a hard one to overcome. And I happen to like very much your author photo! You’re absolutely beautiful! Ack, who cares about the circles. We’re all getting them. No worries my dear friend. 🙂

      Thanks, Karen. 🙂

      It’s too bad anyone has insecurities. I wish everyone could realize that the opinions of strangers and those we barely know don’t matter. Whether what someone said came out the way they intended it to or not, we don’t have to own it.

      Glad I’m not the only one who hates a camera. And thanks for the compliment. I was surprised by the way the picture turned out – but then I paid professionals to help it happen, lol. 🙂

    I think it’s way cool that you got into reading and writing for the same reason I did! I thought I was the only one who embraced reading (and eventually writing) because I didn’t fit in. It’s a shame we weren’t in the same school. We could have had so much fun together.

    People think I’m my kids’ grandmother, and I’ve been given the senior citizen discount in a couple of places without having to state my age. I’m only 41. I used to be insulted, but now I think it’s hilarious. I decided to just see my life as a comical TV show so when this stuff happens, it’s easy to see the humor in it. 🙂

      Are you kidding me? I’ve seen your videos. You don’t look old enough to be a grandmother. :/

      And I’ll bet it would have been a blast to be in school with you. Wallflowers should always stick together. Except if we had, we wouldn’t have read so much – and maybe never started writing, lol. A rock and a hard place, right? 😀
