now you - 1
I started a new project today. I apologize now for the many self portraits that will be gracing this space, but I signed up for Kristen and Meredith's class called Now You.
Today our assignment was to focus on the feature about ourselves we like the most. I meant to get a better shot of my curls. But as I poured through the 21 shots, yes 21 shots...of myself...I decided that its not my curls I like the most about myself, but my strength. Is strength a trait you can capture in a photo?
Either way, I liked this one the best. It was the only one where I didn't look pissed off or completely exhausted. I mean there is a lot to be pissed off about, but the thing I love most about myself is my confidence in my own strength to pull us through.
For the first time in my life living my life on my own terms. There is pain, and anger, but there are equal amounts of strength and joy to be seen in my life as well. Oh friends, so...much...joy...in being my whole self.
