This February, I’m doing #LoveMe, a challenge designed to help you learn to love yourself! One of my New Year’s resolutions was to be kinder and more gentle to myself, so I’m trying to be as positive as I can possibly be in 2017 and hope that doing this challenge will be good for my mental health and overall well-being. Check out my previous #LoveMe posts here!
Today’s prompt is:
A photo of you.
I’ve always struggled to like what I see in photos of myself, but there are a few where I’m happy with how I look. This is one of them. My hair looked nice and my skin was actually clear for once. I was wearing one of my favorite dresses. The plants in the background are subdued yet pretty. The lighting is nice. I like the way my head is tilted. I like my smile.
I hadn’t thought about that day, or indeed that time in my life, in quite a while up until I was scrolling through the Media section of my WordPress dashboard looking for photos to use in this post. I remember feeling proud of myself for graduating and excited yet anxious about heading off to college just a few months later.
I’m really happy with the way this photo turned out. As I said earlier, there are very few pictures of me that I actually like and scarcely any recent ones BECAUSE I NEED TO UP MY SELFIE GAME, but I love this one.
What is your favorite photo of yourself? Why? How many years ago was it taken?
