Facebook is drowning with #10yearchallenge posts.. All pretty and prettier. Skinny and now chubby. Shallow and shallower. Yes! Cause we're more than these meat suits that we wear in life. For me it's about who we are on the inside. The only competition we truly have-ourselves from the past. And if we're not climbing to a better place to call home, aren't we bound fo fail? We put so much importance on how we're perceived and too little on how we feel. If only we had the time we have for selfies, to ourself instead.. To really be present in the moment with us. And all the gifts that come with it.. the pain and the gain. In the picture you can see a confused version of me, lost, in all honesty, physically sick and going downhill, at the end of a toxic relationship and a university degree that weren't really my path. But I tried so hard..that it almost killed me. Me, before I found photography, psychology, self love and true courage. I wasn't really present with myself, so that self couldn't gift me all of these presents. Yet the journey is the honey. Don't take my word for it. Just sit in silence and listen.
