I have been a Facebook user for a long time. During that time I suppose I have changed my image twice. Really, once I get a semi-good photo, I don't mess with it. Good is as good as it gets these days.
But then I noticed that people change theirs a lot. Each change reflects some landmark in their life. Grandchildren are added or a picture of skydiving might be something worth bragging about. But my life is pretty routine except when we travel to Dubai or stay a week in Florence, Italy. When we do those things you will seldom see me in the picture. I require some editing and stuff before I want to feature my picture.
So I took a picture of myself with my Photo Booth app this morning and I suppose I will add it to Facebook just to prove that things have not changed a whole lot.

I often wonder if the way aging people are treated does not have something to do with their appearance. My friends and I are very careful most of the time. Our husbands are the same. But if I go out shopping for example, in sloppy clothes I do notice that I am treated as if I am very old. People actually offer to help me, tell me to be careful not to trip and wait patiently as I mess up at the grocery store credit card machine. If I were 30 years younger, who would care or wait? No one I am thinking.
My self confidence is related to my appearance too. I think I even function better after a new haircut. Somehow I am smarter with shorter hair....you know what I mean?
Anyway, Facebook will get a new image. What is a person going to do?
Have a wonderful day!
