Sometimes when you are searching out this vast blogscape of ours, you never know what you'll land upon. I was totally intrigued to find out about Shakti Mama and this idea of putting up a totally "raw" photo of yourself. The idea is terrifying to most of us...alot of our blogs have crisp, beautiful pictures...carefully selected to show only our best features, our best moments. However, I like the idea of conquering my fears...throwing myself into the things that scare me most...and really baring myself to the world, well that terrifies me. I want so badly to be that woman who just loves herself, madly and completely. The truth is, I fluctuate alot between love and loathing. When I see a picture of myself, I usually feel dismay...there is no love in that first glance...usually I hit the erase button and hope that the day will come when I magically become photogenic...when I become someone other than me.
So...this is my first tentative step...into embracing me for who I am...so here I am...first thing in the morning, (you can't get any more real than that)!
