I will have the opportunity to do a lot of tent living this summer. As in camping… of sorts. My husband and adult children find this amusing because they know I’m a bath and bed kinda chick. However, the chance to better my photography skills and to spend time with fascinating people is just too delicious to pass up. Still, I have some concerns.
I’ve been playing with make-up since I was 15 years old and it is a solid part of my identity. I wish I were the type of woman that simply wakes up, splashes a bit of water on her face, and goes, but I’m not. The magic of choosing how I want to present myself gives me confidence. The challenge this summer will be camping and the ability to wear make-up. How much do I want to drag along? Will I have resources to remove it? Is it just odd to wonder about it at all?
I suspect I’m going to learn a lot about myself in the next few months. How much can I let go of and still feel good? It will be interesting. And scary.
