a mirror-free week
I was reading over at Clementine Daily yesterday and came across a very interesting challenge. They are asking their readers to take part in their Clementine Challenge for a mirror free week (or even a day). A national study states that women look in the mirror 8 times a day, which doesn't seem too much to me, but what if you didn't look at all?
I have more and more come across inspiring women who are choosing to go with no make up and now this challenge has me thinking again. How often do I leave the house without make up? Am I afraid to show the real me, blemishes and all? I have been taking the last year learning to be more open with my feelings, fears and imperfections but what about showing the imperfections on my face and body? I am no doubt guilty of wanting to look like I have everything together but maybe a challenge like this is just what I need to take my soul work and apply it to my physical self.
How about you? Could you go a week with no mirror?
