These photos of David Wraith were taken about five years apart:
As you can see, he made the choice to go from ordinary, to extraordinary. It was a lifestyle change.
This pic of me:
was taken about five hours before this one:
WOW what a huge difference!
Ever since I shaved my head in May, I’ve enjoyed experimenting with many different looks. One day I’ll be a bombshell. The next, I’ll look like a mom. Or a boi. Or Chucky from Child’s Play (that’s what David Wraith said I looked like in my orange wig, stripey shirt and overalls costume.)
Today I’m sporting the hippie look on my way to a modeling gig, and then I will sit naked for three hours in front of a bunch of college students.. Tonight for the girl pile, I’ll be in bombshell mode with thigh high stockings. Or maybe I’ll go wigless – take it from me, doing an orgy in a wig is distracting – I’m always worried that it’s shifting and looks silly.
Rachel W Cole mused on twitter the other day, “Wondering what percentage of women you know actually love their body?”
I replied, “I know plenty of women who celebrate their bodies! Our bodies are vehicles for pleasure! Not gonna let a poochy tummy or stretch marks slow us down!”
It’s so easy for me to change my outward appearance. I know my inner beauty will shine through, no matter how dorky I look. I realize my body is temporary and subject to change. I’m happy to go with the flow.
If an extreme makeover is too much for you, then consider making a small change and see how it feels.
For instance, a jerk I was dating six years ago who was really into tattoos and piercings talked me into getting my ears pierced. He dumped me two months later, but for six years now, I’ve had the same small, dull silver hoops in my ears.
Then last month I had to take them out for an MRI I did to see if I was eligible for a metabolism study (I wasn’t; at 39% body fat, I wasn’t lean enough), and in the process, lost one of the earrings.
So then I was walking around like a sad pirate with one hoop. I had one earring to my name.
SO I went shopping with a girlfriend and found some incredibly sparkly, irridescent studs for only $17. I think they are magical.
I wish I would have replaced those dull hoops long ago. They carried some bad memories with them.
I love my sparkle ears!
