Happy New Year!!
You know the saying, “New year, new me.” Don’t worry, this isn’t me using that same saying!! This is actually….new year…let’s see what happens with me.
Well, it may sound silly, but in 2016, I learned A LOT about myself. I embraced who I was as a woman and a mother and I feel like I pretty much rocked it. Yes, I am tooting my own horn a little bit. But anyone that really knows me and has known me for a long time….knows that it’s about time I got here.
There is always room for more growth though, right? Well, it may sound silly but i Have decided to do a little project with myself in the new year. It’s going to be super simple yet challenging at the same time.
I plan to take a picture (or 2) of myself every single day for the next year. Believe it or not, with all of the selfies I take, I actually don’t take one everyday! We usually take selfies when we feel like we are looking good or when we are going out on a special date or something, right? Well, I am doing it no matter what.
I will take my selfie:
- FOR THE MOST PART in the same spot daily (it may change)
- no matter what I am wearing
- with makeup or not
- whether or not I have showered yet
- from the shoulders/waist up (sometimes I’ll do a body one)
- and I will not edit them
This is a weird project for me but I think it will be fun. In a way, it’s for me to be able to fall in love with myself everyday. I will see myself and there are days where I may not feel the best and there will be days where I feel absolutely fantastic. Even though 2016 brought a lot of growth, like I said, there is always room for improvement. So, as I look at these photos daily, I may pick out my flaws but I can also continue to learn to love the beauty that is there.
It will be difficult to keep up with daily. There’s a HUGE chance that I will not be posting EVERY single day, but I will have a post with the dates that correspond with each photo. Either way, I will get this done.
I will be using either my “fancy”camera or my iPhone. I am kind of excited. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens in a year of selfies. 🙂
And to kick off, here I am.
