It's actually pretty darn difficult to do a self portrait if your holding the camera. The outtakes are hysterical. This was near the end....and you can just see my attitude with the process is just starting a negative dive with the crease in between my seriously scary eyebrows. Yikes....Mariana's Trench has nothing on me. (Do not send tweezers folks I have two pairs, I just forget about those pesky brows till I take an extended look in the mirror or see a shot of myself...both of which are rare.)
Anyway...last week was my birthday, I'm now 37 years of age. And I just can not figure out how the last 12 years or so have literally disappeared. It's scary really. On the day of my birth I was going to attempt to count my gray hairs. But I gave up. I've acquired a few more and they have the strange habit of going from brown to gray to brown again. Which is bizarre and some are all gray. And I don't dye my hair so I have no idea what my body is trying to convey.
As far as a re-count of lessons learned this past year. There were many...but the most important one for me was that you can not sit around and wait for other people to make things happen you just have to go out and do it.
all start with just moving forward. Sometimes no amount of talking will help you to understand something or will help fix it. You just have to move forward and make the change(s) yourself.
I am looking forward to the next year. Being 37 will be fun. I'm working on a very challenging agenda for myself. Learning, loving, growing, laughing, striving, just being myself...I'm looking forward to all of it.
Any lessons learned over the past year that you want to share?
