Van·i·ty [van-i-tee] Excessive pride in one’s appearance or accomplishments; conceit.
Are you vain?
How do you feel about the definition? Does it make you uncomfortable to openly describe yourself as vain, given the negative connotation? Do you think that vanity is a natural part of being a woman?
Let’s talk about it.
I rarely pass by a mirror without looking at my reflection. I like to accentuate my favorite parts with clothing and makeup and adornments. I’m 36. I want to continue to look young as I age. Caring about how I look is one of the things that drives me to be mindful about my eating and self-care habits, to ensure that I preserve this temple and age gracefully. I take selfies. Often. I regard myself from different angles, curious about how I look from the outside and how my spirit is conveyed through my appearance.
