How do YOU see yourself?

I got behind the camera and what did I see?

Greying hair
Tired eyes
43 year old problem skin
Too many chins
Chipped nail polish

But hang on, what else do I see?

A loving wife
A daughter who has been caring for her mother for 8+ years
A sister, auntie and friend
A good employee who knows she is valued by her employers
An artist, scrapbooker, photographer, fabric artist

How do you see yourself? Are you kinder to others than you are to yourself? Probably!

Why not be kind to yourself this weekend – I bet you deserve it.

  2. Great words of wisdom and so true. For some reason we find it easier to be negative than positive, I haven’t worked out why yet.
    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog.

  3. cath – reading the post above and then this….

    i see eyes that scan the world for beauty, detail, the big picture and the hidden secrets

    i see hands that are capable of comfort, of creativity, of being clasped together while listening, or clapping for joy

    thanks for this awareness today…loved lisa’s comment…let’a all be that clueless.
