If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I wish I had better posture, but I don't.

My breasts are small.

My hair is always an unruly mess.

I wish my feelings weren't easily hurt, but they are.

I wish that I could truly not to care what others think, but sadly I can't.

For the next few weeks I am playing along with Pish Posh. Our theme this week is friendships and insecurities.

Personally, I blame most of mine on this ad campaign.

I was twelve and my namesake restaurant came out with an ad campaign that could easily be changed to "Where's the boobs?". Hahahahah (insert eye roll here).

I think I started curling my shoulders then.

Now that I'm no longer twelve (cough, cough) I've started to put a lot less weight into whether or not my breast are big enough. In fact, my entire attitude about them changed when I successfully breast fed all of my kids for the first year of their lives.

Sadly, my posture didn't improve along with it.

Pish has asked me to be honest and I'm trying to. I've hear it said that it takes 21 days to form habit. My oldest daughter and I are attempting to become each others posture police.

Sadly, like my crazy-ass hair, she has also inherited my posture.

We're working on it together. Here's hoping that being accountability partners we'll be able to walk a little taller.

Who knows by the time this challenge is over I may be 5'2 and 1/2 inches tall. LOL

If you could change one thing about you what would it be?

I think for me it would be not to care so deeply. I have allowed things and people to cripple me because I get so emotionaly yeah not to care so deeply...and maybe to have hair on my head ...ok thats two .I never could follow rules,oh maybe I should change that as I better stop, I could go on and on, and that brings me to rambling, i ramble...I would love to change that.......ugggg

Funny how we all have things that we hate about ourselves, but when others look at us, our changes would be their wants.

Hard to love yourself!

See, now I am your size but I have breasts that I think are way too big. I'd love to give half of them to you and then maybe we'd both be happy. Urgh.

If I could change one thing about me it would be my need to disect every mother loving thing someone says to me. DO I really need to analyze people to such a degree that I make myself a parnoid wreck. Nope! I should stop!!

Great post and I hope you are a half an inch taller by the end of the challenge! But I know what you mean about posture, mine is poor too. I call myself hunchback lol.

Good luck!

If we're talking the physical, is my entire body an option? Probably not eh? Or maybe the fibromyalgia, hmmmmm probably not an option either, nothing I can do about that.
If we are talking personality wise, hmmmm I'm not sure, maybe that I need to be a little more assertive. I've gotten more so over the last few years, but I still let people get away with way more than they should.

I have unruly, curly hair, too. I used to dream of poker straight hair, but my friend's with straight hair always complain because they can't do anything with it. I am busty, and, believe it or not, always envied small boobed girls. The freedom of it sounds wonderful. But, yet, small boobed girls wish they had bigger ones.

It's madness, isn't it?

Good luck on the posture improving! I honestly don't give mine much thought, but I'm sure it's terrible. I'll try to make an effort to pay attention to mine this week :)

I am exactly 5'2" and 1/2 ;) I love the look of your blog and I love your honesty! Way to go. I would like to donate half of my nose, 3/4 of my ass and all of my stomach roll to your boobie fund. I'm sure you've heard it all before - it's easier to sleep, jog, fit in shirts, with smaller business up top. But people always say those things about my nose - "I've always wanted a strong nose" "it fits your face" "it gives you character" and it DOESN'T make me feel better. Nothing really does, except me doing my own mental acrobatics to make myself feel better - that and putting it in perspective: a) everyone feels weird about something on them and b)at least my nose isn't being chopped off by sadistic lunatics in afghanistan. See how faar I have to go? But it is what it is.

So I work to focus on the parts of my body I do like, and spruce up the other bits ;)

Wonderful post!

We forget how important posture is. Thank you for the reminder. Makes me think if how it effects our self confidence as well.

If I could change one thing about myself, it would be my constant desire to change my physical appearance (i.e., hair, build, nose, jawline...)

(I'm curious to know which half of Jenner's breasts she would like to give to you ... The left one? The right one? Tops? Bottoms?)
