I have started taking selfies… but not the usual ones, laughing, eating something strange or my feet at the beach. I am trying to create rituals & practices to create a best friendship with myself.
My internal critic has been a powerful, loud and mean part of my internal monolog for years. Trying to shut her up has been a process. My best way of coping and quieting her – is to create rituals that give me proof that she lies.
For years, I just decided I didn’t need to be in any photo’s because I was less than. How strange is that? It is humbling to set down the word weapons you use against yourself.
Changing the Voice with these two amazing online resources – http://www.viviennemcmasterphotography.com/be-your-own-beloved/ & a Facebook group called We were there, too. About how Momma’s need pictures with their children.
This photo pictures me with a halo of art. I love that it shows me as I was at the time. It is a grieving picture for me.
