Work. Concentrate. Imagine your skin is glass and you can see inside. What do you see in the mirror now? You need to concentrate hard because the outward you is what you are USED to seeing. If you look inside and it’s good, true and earnest …well quit being so damn shallow. You will be ugly as hell no matter what presuming you live long enough to get old. The eternally beautiful MUST die young and you are a new mom so you have someone depending on you not to die in the foolish pursuit of a goal which can at best be a temporary fix. This is your aunt’s message to you. Don’t die in pursuit of shallow & ephemeral goals like beauty. She must be quite distressed your lesson from her tragedy is to continue to worship beauty
