If you really knew me.... I have not always loved myself or how I looked. There were many times when I would question, am I good enough, pretty enough.
I was always the girl with the half smile, or the " fake" happy smile.
Having through no fault of my own, but multiple teeth missing did not help my situation. Family genes, and as a side affect from multiple surgeries caused weakness in my teeth, and bone strength in my mouth.
Being a terrified scaredy cat, it took almost a year for the completion of dentures. But it was the icing on the cake to just what my self confidence needed.
So, you see that double chin I'm rocking in this pic. I embrace it, why because I no longer strategically put myself in the most perfect poses.
Learning to love myself was like learning to walk—essential, life-changing, and the only way for me to stand tall.
I love myself just the way I am. And my smile speaks a thousand words.
