I just read a great post from the blog of Twig and Toadstool and I became totally inspired by Maureen that I have decided to join ShaktiMama and travel along with her and other fun and daring woman on a journey of self discovery - by way of self portraits through photographs. The photo above was unintentional for this journey - it is the taken in the foyer of my sister in law's house. I snapped the shot because I knew it would be the only photo of me taken in Norway. It doesn't look like me - but it is. Perhaps others think it looks like me - but I am not recognizing that woman in the mirror. My fingers want to type excuses of why I look tired and perhaps old but - I am holding back. I am what I am and I bet I am going to learn a lot about myself on this journey of self exploration. A few months back I posted about accepting the self I see in the mirror - this is a chore and not a gift
perhaps for some it is.
As with all chores - done on a daily basis they get easier - and of course all chores serve purposes. The purpose of this journey is to be kinder to the woman I see in my reflection. Sundays will now be self portrait days!
