Be Your Own Beloved #15

Every day, I am taking a self-portrait in conjunction with Vivienne McMaster's Be Your Own Beloved e-course.

The Truth of Today

Today's assignment is about documenting the truth of today. It has been a rough couple of weeks for me. Catching the flu made my body shut down and feel so terrible and when I'm feeling that sick, my emotional well-being seems to take a toll as well. As I get better, I want to go back to my active life but my body jumps in and reminds me that I am still recovering. I still need lots of sleep and quiet. This makes me feel sad and it all starts to feel like a mean circle of pain and sadness.

But things are looking up. I had the energy to take this picture and write about it and share it. This is a triumph. I am on the mend. More and more I am learning to not judge my natural states of being so harshly. It's so liberating to honor them instead. It is all part of me loving myself and that is a very good thing!
