After feeling terrible emotionally for the last couple of days. I decided to take a picture of myself and make it beautiful. I wanted to see myself in a different light. Being so critical of myself really brings me down. I know so many women and men that do this to themselves. They are hypercritical of themselves, it’s sad really because they are great people. They don’t see it for themselves and when someone else tells them how wonderful they, they can’t believe it. The program of self-loathing plays on and sometimes is amplified by compliments. I know this to be true because that is what happens to me. I feel guilt for getting a compliment. I want to change this pattern. Seeing myself in a different light. Loving and appreciating the person I am is important. Read the rest of this entry
Day 1 of the Selfie Self-Love Challenge
The thing I chose to focus on today was “I Am Kind”. I enjoy that I am a nice person and that I truly care about people. I’m nice to people, but not always nice to myself. I can be harsh and critical of me. I’d like to change that. I’d like to be more gentle with myself and treat myself with the same kindness that I show others.
This is what I did with the words and phrases that came to mind. I understand its very negative. That’s the point. By writing all these out and giving a mood to my entry. It made me realize that all those are lies brought on by my inner critic. I gave it form and deflated the power of the emotions and tapes that are on repeat.
A simple collage that I created using the words, phrases and images from my flow writing exercise. I hadn’t placed an example with the previous post. I’m interested to see what others do with their flow writing.

I thought of this idea to just write. Not editing or analyzing. To see what I’d come up with. To get a sense of my writing voice. The inner voice that dictates what comes out on pixels or paper. I’ve done this a few times, but haven’t really done in a conscious manner. I’ll be honest, the editor in me wants to fix every error that I make and punctuate every so often. It was a challenge, but a very insightful challenge. I’d like to share it with other and see what people come up with and to hear their experiences. Read the rest of this entry
