I realized the other day that I never shared my May selfie mosaic and I also missed my June OLW update. Let’s take care of that pronto.
As you may recall, I took a selfie every day for the month of May. My original intention was to take different camera angles, sometimes showing full body shots instead of just head and shoulders, and it was all with the goal of body positivity. Well, in reality, I only did 1 full body shot. Still, I completed the project satisfactorily and I really did grow in my acceptance of how I look on a daily basis.
June’s prompt was all writing, which is tots in my wheel house. The idea is to pause at the half way mark of the year and evaluate the journey so far. To answer questions that take you back to where you were when you started in January and to consider if there are things you want to change as you go forward.
I think the most important thing, of all the things I wrote, is this: I want to remember that I chose practice to encourage myself to try without the fear of failure That practice isn’t about success of even improvement, that remembering to try is enough. I want to tell myself that it’s just practice and I can try anything.
And that’s where I am at the half way mark of my year of practice.
