Not what they seem…

Most things in life are rarely what they seem to be.

However, we act constantly every day on these impressions we form of people, situations and so on, without pausing to be curious. We form judgements, often based on nothing much or what others tell us.

We could choose to pause and ask, is this really true? Is this really what this person means? That means switching the autopilot off and letting go of the judgements we all carry.

Faces are one of the hardest things to draw and there are so many different expressions, messages, signals, things being said by them.

They are amazing things, that say so much about you to others. You can tell happiness or not, kindness or not, warmth or not, so many emotions, or lack of them, can be seen from a person’s face.

It is the world’s window into us.

How often do you think about the face you have put on and what message it sends? Or thinking deeper, what is going on behind the face, that projects whatever representation of us to the world via it.

We often have expressions out of habit and are unaware how others see us.

Maybe you could change something that puts a different look on your face, sends a different impression of ourselves.

What does your face say about you? Take a look in the mirror or ask others what your face is saying.
