I had an awesome realization yesterday, I'm calling it the Susan Boyle Effect.
I think all of us are pretty insecure about somethings having to do with ourselves. I'm not a huge fan of my looks. I have one eye that never opens to the same width as the other and tends to drift a little sideways when I'm tired. Whenever a few extra pounds find my skinny frame they settle right into some ridiculous potbelly. I have skinny legs and the hairline has seen a few better days. I'll just say, if I'd been able to chose I would have picked a face a lot closer to Brad Pit's face than my own.
So, the realization came reading a post from one of my favorite bloggers in the universe, Seth Godin. I'm just going to spit this out; He's not a pretty man.:
The Revelation? I was watching a video of Lyle Lovett and it hit me: No one thinks I'm as big a deal as I do. No one really cares what I look like but my wife and she's in for a pound already. Not to mention, I'm kinda doubting she fell for me on account of my looks. I can be as ugly as I want to be; if I'm excellent I'll find an audience.
