I’m getting older. I look older, my body feels older… time is flying by.
I was looking at some pictures of myself from the last five-ish years last week and wishing there were more. I thought I did a good job back then of getting enough of me. At the time taking them feels vain or not even vain because I don’t like the way I look but… selfish? I don’t know, I feel super strange when I take my own picture.
But I really wish I had more of them! Even when I was fat (2007!) I wish I had more pictures of that time. It’s interesting now to see how different my body looked then.
So I’m starting a daily self portrait project. Not necessarily to share on my blog (definitely not sharing most of them on my public blog) but for myself. I’ll share some occasionally here. I know I want to do some (eek) without makeup or my hair done. And I really want more of me doing what I do all day. Driving, shopping, cooking, cleaning (I definitely want more of me cleaning since I do it ALL day long), doing my makeup, sleeping, etc. One a day for the next YEAR! And I think I’ll keep up the motivation if I don’t pressure myself to edit or post them all the time. I’ll take them and if I ever feel like posting them I will, but if I don’t… no biggie, I have them to look back on when I’m older 🙂
