NABLOPOMO DAY 1: YOU

“Be Yourself; Everyone else is already taken.”

 

Day 1 nablopomo selfie

DO YOU LIKE TAKING SELFIES? WHY OR WHY NOT.

I had to grow into liking the way I look.

I will honestly say, it wasn’t until my 30s that I began to really LOVE myself. Or rather, accept.

No LOVE.

On the surface, I am opposed to selfies. At first glance they are so narcissistic. BUT the photographer in me loves a GOOD selfie. My selfies tend to be unconventional: I cut off my head, I show just my feet, just my hands…

I believe in taking the ordinary and making it pretty.

And selfies are no exception. Why be like everyone else? That’s something that I can honestly say taken me 39 years to come to realize: that being me is the best.

That being me is better than OK.

And I celebrate ME with a selfie now and then.

Because some days you look good.

Some days your day stinks.

Somedays you want everyone to SEE your happiness.

Some days, only a selfie will show how tired you really are.

So to answer the question, YES, I like taking selfies.

The end.

🙂

    I don’t take selfies that often. I have about 10 in my phone but for the most part I hate them….they never ever come out right.
