How Should We View Ourselves?

Well, my recent post defending Hillary Clinton raised some eyebrows, but I definitely believe that we should try to be less obsessed – and critical – of the way we look.  That’s easier said than done, of course, with so many commercials trying to get us to buy the very latest beauty product and so many magazines airbrushing out the very imperfections that make us human.

Julie Smith Lowe (a counselor at CCEF) writes about this in an article called, “How Should We View Ourselves:”

God’s Word teaches us how to have an accurate view of self. Think about 2 Corinthians 4:7, “But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” This passage identifies us as “jars of clay” with a treasure of great value inside of us. As inconspicuous clay pots we “show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.”

Easier said than done?  Yes.  But read the whole thing and give yourself a little extra room to be normal today.

On This One, I’m Team Hillary

Recently, the Drudge Report put a photo of Hillary Clinton’s face at the top over the headline: “Au Naturel.”  The photos were snapped in Bangladesh and India over the weekend, and people began chattering about how she didn’t look as polished as normal. Though she was wearing red lipstick – and cool glasses! — she didn’t wear foundation.  After the Drudge link appeared, the Washington Post said she looked like a schoolgirl, the Atlantic approved of her appearance, and Fox News said she looked “tired and withdrawn.”

Isn’t it crazy how a little decision like, “should I wear my foundation today?” ended up getting so much national attention?  I’m not a Democrat or an important leader, but it seems a little overdone.

When I was on Dancing with the Stars, I was only nineteen years old. I was active and fit, but I did gain five to ten pounds over the course of the show.  At my heaviest, I was still thinner than a lot of girls my age, but heavier than I am now. I’m not saying this because I’m somehow proud of how I looked on that show. Rather, I’m saying that I’ve been the brunt of jokes, speculation, and criticism about my appearance, and it’s not fun.

When people choose to mock young impressionable females and even more mature national political leaders, it spreads the lie that the value of women resides in their appearance.  As women, we should resist the urge to laugh at our sisters, both Democrats and Republicans alike. Plus, Hillary looks good! I think we should give her credit for not having a make up artist following her around and for being comfortable in her own skin.

And speaking of no makeup, this is what my mom looks like 90% of the time!
