This morning ,as I washed my face,I felt the soft smooth skin and smiled.I have been told over and over about what nice skin I have.But off late,whenever someone compliments me on my skin/complexion..I just brush it off saying,”Ohh this is nothing,it was much better.” or “look at the pigmentation” And then,one thought led to another..and I realised that I am very bad at accepting compliments..
When someone praises my cooking,I tell them,”ohh my mom was better..” or ” ohh this one(dish) is a no brainer”..
When someone compliments me on my outfit,I just say..”Ohh this one..oh yeah..” or”ohh its my sister’s” If someone tells me i have lost weight,I say..”ohh I really need to lose some more..this is nothing”..you know what I mean..
And then,there’s Aadya,when she does something…she demands,we say,”Good job”..and when we do,she smiles sweetly and says,”thank you”…So,today when,a friend complimented me on my blog..I resisted the urge to brush her off and direct her to my favorite blogs..instead,just smiled and said,”thank you”..And its not so bad..you know:)basking in the appreciation.
And on that note,I thought I will share an outfit,that fetched me some compliments..After spending over 2 years in Kurtis and the likes,this well-fitting shirt,is my “baby-steps” from hassled mom to a cool mom.
About the outfit-
Shirt- $15 from Best&Less
Jeans-$20 from Target
necklace-2 year old from Claire’s..dont remember how much.
And now I am going to post this,before I lose the nerve to do it.
