I’ll let you in on a little secret about me – I wear glasses. For those of you who didn’t know, I wear contacts most days, but I’ve had prescription glasses for years. When I first got them I hated them. I feared being called a dork, a geek, a nerd, four eyes, or any other nicknames designated to people who wear glasses. It felt like I would get lumped in a category that made me less than what I was.
Now that I’m older that couldn’t be further from how I feel. I have learned to embrace wearing glasses. When you find the right pair they can be a really great outfit accessory. I’ve noticed people tend to take me a little more serious when I’m wearing them, but the most important thing about them is they help me see the world. I keep them by my bedside so they are on hand whenever I need them.
I watched this little video and it got me thinking about my past and upcoming travels. Though my prescription is fairly mild (I’m near sighted) without glasses or contacts, things look a little blurry. Having seen some beautiful sights, (Bonjour le tour Eiffel!) I appreciate my glasses even more because had I not had them, I wouldn’t get the detail of such beauty. I will be heading back to Europe in September and you can be sure I will be bringing them along!
