I've been catching up on blogs. Had not been around for about two weeks so I was slowly reading and enjoying the posts I had missed. While I read one of my go to blogs and looked at the pictures I realised that this super cool impeccable blogger´s white roots were showing. How could this be, did she not see them? 
Then I just stopped and felt terrible. She was this intelligent woman with marvellous style and there I was pointing out her roots. Instead of admiring her writing and other attributes I was focusing on anything I considered a "flaw". I do this too often and its something I'd like to change: See the good. Which do you see first the "good" or the "flaw" ?

Luego de estar relativamente ausente por dos semanas, poco a poco he ido leyendo los blogs que sigo. Mientras leía uno de los que visito con frecuencia realicé que las raíces blancas podían ser vistas en las fotos del cabello de esta blogger cuyo estilo es impecable. ¿Cómo puede ser, acaso no se las vio? 
Hice un alto y me sentí terrible. Ella era esta mujer inteligente con estilo maravilloso y yo estaba enfocándome en las raíces de su cabello. En vez de admirar su escritura y otros atributos yo me estaba enfocando en lo que consideraba una "falla". Hago esto a menudo y es algo que me gustaría cambiar y ver lo bueno. ¿Qué ves primero, lo "bueno" o la "falla".

Ha! Is it me? My white roots show sometimes (mostly at the top of my head, and area I try not to photograph). Damn hair just keeps growing, and won't come in the colour I want it to! ;-P

While I adore YOU, I do not adore this colour combo - the colors feel too bland for your personal vibrancy!

I think we all do that but what a good reminder to see the GOOD!

I think we all are drawn to flaws. I know for me when I see an amazing blogger I look to or admire I try to find that something that might take them down. I have really made myself take a step back and remember that they are human and these are just small snapshots of someones life. Thanks for the reminder to notice the good things!

I think as bloggers we're apt to do that. She probably knew. Maybe she wants them to show. Not so perfect.
