I have been out of the habit of writing for a couple of days. I have been extremely busy with photography sessions which is a good thing to have, but no time to devote to my photo a day project. I did however make time to take my annual Mother’s Day photo with my girls. I have said it before, but I truly believe the best gift you can give yourself for Mother’s Day is a photo of you with your kids. I look forward to it every year.
Time is a funny thing, when I was in my early 20’s I was so self conscious about everything. I had little to no self esteem and I constantly would pick at myself about my looks. I always felt I was never skinny enough and I avoided the camera. Well now while I don’t run towards the camera any chance I get, I do have more realistic expectations of my body and I am proud of what my body has done for me. It’s not a perfect body by any means and in fact I am at my heaviest I have been in quite some time, but I have more confidence in who I am now then when I held the advantage of youth.
Maybe it was motherhood which can be very humbling that has given me the “okay” to be goofy and not care what others think about how I act or look, I don’t know but I do know this. I am going to enjoy what I look like now so that when I am older I don’t look back and wish I would have taken the photo.
