‘Tis the season to be grateful
On my way to work this morning I was feeling resentful of my acne…as always!
This was until I spotted a smiley gentleman on the train that had his face and neck covered (no exaggeration) in bumps. Literally no clear spaces at all. These bumps were like welts and did not resemble spots in any way or form. I am fairly sure he must have been born with this skin condition.
I sat their with a face like thunder feeling miserable about my recovering acne I suddenly felt incredibly self absorb, guilty and selfish!
At this time of year, whether we celebrate Christmas or not I feel we should feel grateful for everything we have…I may sound a little sappy and Californian (sorry Californians-I personally love your smiliness) but maybe, just maybe, we should think about others and things that may in actual fact be of more importance than our skin.
…this being said, I think about my skin approximately 90% of the day!
