Satya in Advertizing?

If you read my last blog post, you’ll know that in my effort to practice the Yama of Satya (truth in life on — and off — the mat) I’m growing out my grey and white hair. I’m ashamed to say that I’m freaking out a little about my decision to embrace my natchy hair, then I found this nugget from Adweek:

It seems superficial to think about looks and appearance to any extent beyond morning grooming time. Not so long ago, a dating deal breaker for me was guys who spent more time on their appearance than I did. Blistex was my makeup regime back then, and I usually tied my shoulder length hair into a ponytail — I can’t stand the feeling of hair on my face.

I resent the time I spend grooming these days. Incrementally over the years I lost the ability to travel light, growing dependent on increasingly more
products. I blame my wedding. 😉

Joking aside, I had my makeup done professionally for my wedding 15 years ago, and became enthralled with the power of maquillage to transform me into “one of the pretty girls”. After watching this Dove video, I’m questioning what I see in the mirror. And that’s a good thing.

  1. That’s so great to see! I know I’d be just like those gals, harsh in describing myself, & …. wrong. And I know I am getting more judgmental as I get older, yikes! I guess our work really is to change how we SEE, & not worry so much about how we LOOK.

    Thanks.
