I have missed a few weeks of linking up with Fiona at Mummydaze for the 52 week project...It was not the best time of year to start really.. things in my life were getting rather hectic and I lost track of time (and my mind!!) But in my usual style I don't give up easily when I commit to something so I am back online and posting!!! I suppose one of the reasons I have been quiet is due to not taking a photo that I have liked of myself.. Always seeing the negative in my reflection... my nose looks too big.. my double chin too obvious.. my face too chubby... my hands too wrinkly and child like... my hair not pretty or blonde or healthy enough... then I realised I need to try and overcome these foibles and embrace what mother nature (or genetics) gave me.. life is way to short to be focusing on all of these negatives (although it somehow unfairly is easier than looking at the positives)... So my resolution for 2012 is to be kinder on myself.. I am what I am... and I need to be proud of it !! Lets see how I go!! Ill start by saying I like my eyes.. they are blue and change color often.. and I kick ass a bright colored lipstick... baby steps to loving what I have got.. but a start...
So this week the picture I have chosen is taken at my most exposed - asleep (again by my gorgeous Darby).. on Xmas eve.. I was trying to sneak in a quick power nap before another round of festivities ... eating... drinking ..and present giving! He must have grabbed my phone and snapped away!! I don't mind this picture actually.. I look at peace and quite content... especially as I was feeling manic and out of control at the time (yearning for a good coffee probably!)
My goal for this week is to take a picture I love of myself! Will see how I go!
Until next time
