I recently visited relatives and I remember them saying -- you look awesome, you're over forty but you don't have any wrinkles!
While I was happy that I looked beautiful, I never expect to have such a flawless complexion at this age. At a young age, I knew that beauty was fleeting, gravity reigns and scars are proof of a life lived.
When I told DW (my significant other) what my relatives said he saw through my perplexed heart and told me: Just because you don't have wrinkles doesn't mean you don't have a happy life or that you don't laugh.
He should know, he makes me laugh the most. His words soothed my worrying mind.
But this is proof of a lie going around.
The lie is: Nobody knows anything about anyone.
DW proved that saying is a lie. He knew what my concern was before I could utter a word about it. He tore apart the worry about not having laugh lines. It's so silly. I was happy I was beautiful to my family, but concerned I'd paid a horrible price for that beauty. I'd never trade a flawless face for laughter. The smiles given to me from my family, friends and most of all my DW! I love you guys.
But I also should have known the answer. Because he makes me laugh everyday. So I'll keep laughing...because maybe dermatologists of the past were wrong about skin. Maybe laughing a lot is what makes my skin wrinkle free. But really who cares! I have a DW telling me I'm beautiful. I hope you do too.
