Theme Thursday: Self portraits...yikes!
Ok...here we go. I am linking up with Cari for Theme Thursday...the theme, Self portraits. Hmmm, not fun. I am too lazy to take a new picture so here are a couple of recent ones. Of course there are kids in them with me. I have really been trying to be better about taking pictures of myself with the kids. I am trying to let go of a ton of body issues. I don't want my kids to look back and wonder where I was when in fact I was hiding behind my camera. I am also trying to practice what I preach. My daughter has battled serious body image issues, to the point that she had to be hospitalized for her health. When I look at her, I see beautiful and kind brown eyes, I see to die for red curly hair and I see a warm contagious smile. But more importantly than all of that, I see the true beauty in her...the beauty of her soul, thoughtful and sweet. I don't see what she sees. As I looked through the other self portraits, I was amazed at how honest all of you women were about your insecurities. When I saw all of your pictures, I thought the same thing that I think when I look at my lovely daughter. "She is so pretty! She looks so sweet! What in the world was she worried about? She is gorgeous!" So I am going to bite the bullet post the pictures. Besides, true beauty comes from within, right??
