Reaching My Goals

I made it back to LA tonight.  I spent the evening watching the news with the madre.  She then informed me that she had something for me.  This is quite strange in my family… not the buying things but the surprise aspect…

Example: The past few Christmases/Birthdays I’ve been buying my presents and wrapping them myself then signing the card “Mami y Papi” or “Santa”… get the idea?

What was this surprise?

A fantastic sparkly, leopard print sweater that I saw at Macy’s last week when we went shopping.  This will come in handy as one of my goals for 2010 is to dress better (or really just get dressed everyday…).  I love sweaters!  Thanks, Madre!

The next exciting thing is this: the Madre’s make up drawer (my mom is a sassy one in case you haven’t noticed)

Eye shadow and lip gloss.

I’ve decided to start wearing lip gloss.  How does this fit into my goals for 2010?

One of my goals was to stop talking about the things I don’t like about myself and accept myself the way I am (if not fix it).

Well, I’m going to do that.  I never wear lip gloss or lipstick (with the exception of Halloween or themed parties) because I don’t like my lips.  Certain things can’t be changed.  I can’t make my lips smaller.  So instead I’m learning to accept myself.  My brother can tease me all he wants but I’m embracing the bigness/fullness/voluptuousness of my lips and rocking some pink lip gloss from now on!

Is there anything you have learned to embrace about yourself?  Any works in progress?

P.S. Another step toward reaching my 2010 goals will be revealed as I get back to Ithaca on Saturday!  Stay Tuned!

    Girl, I’ve got goals galore! That sweater is fabulous, and good for you for embracing yourself! Fuller lips are sooo beautiful, tons of people get lip injections all the time to get what you have naturally! You are fabulous and gorgeous just the way you are, good for you for stepping it up in 2010, I’m gonna try and be right there with ya in that department. 😉 I almost went to Moosewood the other day for lunch, and I thought of you!

    I guess we all at times want to look like this person or that or get flat hair or curly hair or hair in general 😉 but we just have to embrace ourselves how we are! 🙂
    That sweater is so gorgeous! What a lovely surprise!

    Oh my gosh– I’m always so JEALOUS of people with full lips! HELLO, Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johannson!!

    My height (5’10) is something that has been an issue for me all my life…I’ve finally learned to focus on the positive aspects of it…and ignore all of the people who ask me “How’s the view from up there??” Yep. It happens.

    I love your lips! Manuel just likes to tease us and he has nothing else to tease you about! I remember when we first started teasing you with your lips, there was just nothing else to point out…you are perfect! =)

    I wear lipstick all the time because I don’t like its natural color but it’s in line with my glowing goal! 😀
