So I have been taking pictures of myself in hopes of feeling like I’m pretty. I’m not really feeling it yet but here is what I have realized..
- I need to smile in pictures. I love my life. I am happy with most of my choices and feel privileges with my job and with the paths I have picked. My face really needs to work on documenting that for when I look back at myself in the future.
- I look pretty normal. I kinda always felt like I looked a bit pigish. Turns out that is not the case. I’m a pretty normal looking human being here. Good to know.
- I don’t think that taking pictures of myself will improve my self esteem. I tend to be over critical and then when I take a picture I like, I attribute the looks to makeup or a random good hair day or an amazing angle. That a brain thing. Gotta get the brain to shut up long enough to learn how to love myself.
So, Without further ado… Selfies
This weekend, I will work on taking better selfies… because after all, self love and acceptance is part of the freedom I seek.
