Know your own limits

Those are very wise words, but I did not take heed for many years. It is never too late. I am being very conscious of my limits as I pack my suitcase for a trip that includes a wedding. Here's a list:
  • Don't wear make-up for more than three hours. I often struggle with eczema. And when I am not controlling my PCOS, like now, I also get acne. The last thing you want on your face is acne AND eczema. That alone is material enough for a very long post.
  • Don't wear high heels. I have scoliosis and had a back injury at age 23. I wore a back brace for 9 months.
  • Don't lift more than 25 pounds. See above.

I guess the bride does not need to worry that I might outshine her.

  1. This made me smile. You will be gorgeous, because you're obviously a valued member of their circle, and they'll just be glad you're there.
