Doctor’s orders   Leave a comment

every night after the worldly news on channel 9 my husband flips the channel to FOX and we watch reruns of “Two and a Half Men”
before that program while we are watching news, a show called “The Doctors” (I think) is on.
So we catch a minute of two of the last part of the show.
And every evening the main guy (doctor) says….”… this or do this…those are my doctor’s orders”
Last night it was on plastic surgery on the face.
And as he was ending the program he said “Be happy with who you are and all your little imperfections. They make you unique and they sum up the person that is you”
And I thought…..what a cool thought
I have many imperfections.
The most obvious to me is my thinning hair on the top of my head.
I hate it and I feel like it is like a flashing red sign saying “LOOK HERE!! BALD SPOT FORMING!”
and I am very conscience of it.
I hate it.
But I inherited it from my mother so…it makes up a part of who I am.
Another obvious imperfection is the gap between my two front teeth.
I wore braces for almost six years (three years each time) to correct this gap in my front teeth.
But alas it still opened up and there it is for all the world to see….

I think my best feature is my eyes.
And next to that would be my tallness.
I can carry around a lot more weight than most people and I don’t look as heavy as I really am
(or so my sister tells me)
I would like to be 60 pounds lighter than I am, but I struggle with it constantly, mostly during these long winter months.
Still it is a part of who I am.

I have a sister who has told me that if she came into money she would get a boob job.
According to her, she has pancakes for breasts and I don’t realize how lucky I am to have a nice breast package.
I personally say I just have more to sag (sorry for the gross image)
but she wants bigger breasts
And of all of us girls, she and my sister Linda weren’t blessed with the larger breasts like the rest of us
(If you could call it blessed???)

still it is a part of me and therefore according to the doctor on the program last night….I should be happy and yes proud of all of my imperfections.
Doctor’s orders you know?
