Thursday Thoughts

Linking up with Jennifer today for Thursday Thoughts!

~When I see stories of people that have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on plastic surgery to look like a certain celebrity, it makes me sad. I can't help but wonder when in their life they were made to feel like being themselves wasn't good enough. I think about how they feel after the surgery. Are they happy with how it turned out? When they look in the mirror, do they see the celebrity they aspire to be or just a different version of themselves?

~This may be a weird quirk that only I possess, but if I'm reading a book, I can't look at the picture of the author on the back. If I do, I picture them the whole time I am reading...kinda like if I see the movie before I read the book, I picture all the actors as the characters instead of creating them in my head.

~Has anyone seen the video of the woman that dedicated herself to working out 100 days in a row? She lost 51 pounds last year and 18 pounds in her 100 day challenge! To me, what's more inspiring than that is the smile you see on her face that grows bigger and bigger as she gains more self-esteem and learns to love herself. I love this video! You go LaKeisha!

~Does anyone remember Nikki McKibbin from the first season of American Idol? I saw a commercial today where her SON is trying out this season! That makes me feel old!

~One of my goals for 2014 is to see a movie at least once a month. My sister and I are going this weekend, but I can't decide what I want to see! American Hustle or Lone Survivor?
