i don't like photos of myself.
it's that simple. i said it.
i do pretty much anything to stay on "my side" of the camera
the side i feel safe on. the side where i feel like me. the side that truly makes me smile.
the side that's my classroom where i still learn something new everyday.
i opened my mail yesterday
the sideways photo of me below
jumped onto my screen
i didn't like it. not really. well maybe a tiny bit since it was me.
and since i don't hate me. just photos of me. i took a deep breath.
"here, go ahead and play. do that magic that you do"
so i did
i played and i played and i played
like a child with a new box of crayons
i pretty much love the photos above. i do. i really do.
thank you deb for seeing the me i don't often see
it's your thoughts and your spirit
and your creativity and your flare
and your heart and your sparkle
and your passion and your loves
and your courage that make up
the incredible mix of who you are...
why oh why
do we let others tell us
what our mix should be?!
