Self Portrait Friday

I have started this post several times this morning. It always starts with why I don't like pictures of myself. My commitment to myself and my challenge to you starting today is to look at your photos and embrace them, celebrate them, and be grateful. They are all pieces that document our stories that make up who we are. Are you brave enough to make a scrapbook of photos just of you?

Have a fun filled beautiful weekend!


  1. Fabulous photo. I love it. Love the words too. It is so hard to accept and celebrate ourselves, just as we are.

  2. Funny you should ask...I am doing just that using some of the techniques that I learned in DJ's class at An Artful Journey.
    The photos, however, are of the young me starting at one years old.
    They come from an old album that my Mother owns...I made a blog post about the album last week. :)
    I love this photo of you and your dog...is it a French Bulldog? I can tell that you love each other dearly.

  3. Accepting ourselves is what this assignment is all about. It is very brave of you to post your photos. This one is precious with your little dog, I love it.

  4. Hi Lindy! I love your picture, cute doggie and cute you!!!

    Are you considering Squam? email me about it if you would like. It is a dream of mine to take a class by Flora, but I am not sure if I can pull it off...maybe maybe maybe...
