A Hotter New You for 2023!

Note: This commercial isn’t real.

And neither are society’s beauty standards.

“For me, beauty says nothing. It is a still image on glossy paper. I am fascinated by imperfection, it is neither ugly nor flawed, it is the expression of life!”
~Isa Millot

P.S. What do you think of my newly-enhanced profile pic? (I corrected my thinning hair and weak chin.) ~Mitch

    And I love the sentiment behind this post. Five decades later and I am still UNlearning all that society has conditioned me to believe about (dis)empowerment of perfectionism.

    The good news is that I am LEARNING and sharing my own journey with this concept each week with hundreds of psychology students that the pathway to freedom is to JUST BE what God intended us to be.

    Messy imperfections — original — soul prints.

    Thank you Mitch! You always know how to make me smile. 🙏☀️

    FS by Adobé did wonders for your profile pictures. Now you look like that most famous of car nuts and lat night host, Jay Leno!

  7. Nope, for the new you that resembles Tim Allen as a plumped-up Santa Clause. Original you without FS is better.

    A tiny fraction of women can live up to today’s beauty standards—and still we try. Until, like many women my age, we get old and wise enough to just be ourselves, wrinkles, fat, sags,and all. Unless we’re Madonna. 🙄
    Love the faux commercial, and I agree with some other commenters about the new you…a Jay Leno clone. 😉

  11. I’m not sure about the new you, but now I’m convinced I need to drain my superannuation pot for a complete me makeover. And then, I’ll still need a touch up by FS by Adobe.

    I got a real taste of this when I posed for Austin Young some years ago (10??). I look AMAZING in the heavily photoshopped final image… thinner, smooth (every wrinkle erased), younger, and prefect white teeth!
