Starting to rethink this whole tanning thing…

Remember when I told you I had learned to be confident having less melanin in my skin that others (IE I was happy being a whitie)?

I’m beginning to have second thoughts…

PS.  Readers PLEASE KNOW that skin color/tanning is NOT the only thing I think about when I see these pictures.  Sure I appreciate beauty/fashion/makeup/color, etc. but even I’m not that shallow as to forget the wonderful faith, spirit, friendship and love of the people I met in Fiji.

“You don’t have to be tan to be beautiful…”

Thank you Miss Melissa for explicating this simple yet life-changing truth to me when we were freshman at BYU.  This revelation helped me shed years of insecurity and also save a little money since I no longer was buying tan-in-a-can every other week.  Sure I like to have a summer glow now and then, but I no longer feel ugly because my skin doesn’t look like leather.
