Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been. ~ Mark Twain

My favorite thing about wrinkles (yes, you can have a favorite thing about wrinkles!) is that they can be a gauge for happiness. The more lines around the mouth, the more I’ve laughed; and the more crow’s feet around my eyes, the more I’ve smiled. Despite what TV, magazines, and popular culture tell us, wrinkles are a natural, beautiful, normal part of our expressive faces. They are only flaws if we let them be, if that is our perspective. This is true of many physical flaws that we women are taught to buy into.

Today’s Action

Think of a few (two or three) of your physical “flaws” and write them down. If your wrinkles are a gauge of joy, what positives do your other “flaws” represent? For example, stretch marks might represent the birth of a beloved child or a new muscle. Next to each “flaw”, write something positive that it represents. Notice how each one helps you gain new perspective.
