Everyday Project 52 Photography Projects

Who Am I?

It's week one of the Eyecandy Project 52. The theme this week is who are you?

 

You know, at the start of every year, you see all of these articles on how you can better yourself, lose weight, get organized, be a better version of yourself.

But…I kind of like the old me.

Yes, I need to lose weight.

Yes, I need to organize.

Yes, I need to FOCUS.

But even if I don’t meet any of the goals I set for myself this year, I still like who I am.

RIGHT NOW. RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT.

I am a 39-year-old wife of 10 years, mother for 6, daughter, sister, friend who loves the feel of warm sand between her toes, that feeling of anticipation you get when you open a brand new book, the first sip of coffee in the quiet of the morning, that moment when you KNOW you just took a great photo and big hugs from loved ones.

I’ve got my issues, ( LAWD KNOWS I DO).

But I LIKE me.

Shoot I’m almost 40 I better!!!

ANYWAY. This is me.

The end.

I’m going to have a great year. Are you?

    Happy New Year! I LOVE this post! I also wish that more women would love themselves like this. Yes, everybody has things to work on, but I truly believe that we should love ourselves any damn way! Fixing those things that we need to work on should only enhance the fantasticness that is you! Great way to start the new year!

    This was right on time. I was just thinking about this on the way to school this morning. If my life stayed the way it is, I’d still be happy. I’m really happy where I’m at right now and that’s an awesome feeling. Anything else is just icing on a pretty sweet cake.

    Love the photo. And, girl, yes! It’s so nice to like {not just love} but like yourself. I’m happy with me too. As contradictory and weird and goofy as I can be.

    I like who I am as well. I think 2015 was a year for me to understand who I am and come to grips with the fact that everyone may not understand me but that I have a right to be who I am and they have a right to not deal with me and I am finally okay with that.
