|Witchy Nerd Gets New Glasses|
Today's assignment is to capture a photo that celebrates our individuality. This made me laugh with delight because this process of self-portrait-taking has really helped me connect with my unique voice. I have been laughing myself silly coming up with crazy scenarios to take pictures of and delighting in how strange and clownlike I can be. I used to be really embarrassed of how silly and strange I can get, but this process has taught me so much about loving myself at a deeper more authentic level.
I recently needed to get new glasses and I have been dreaming about getting cat's eye glasses again. I wore them for fun in my early 20's and then I never felt brave enough to do it again. Through my process of learning to embrace my quirky weirdness, I went ahead and got new, granny-style, cat's eye glasses. I love them! I love them so much, I actually can't stop taking pictures of myself wearing them! So when I read Vivienne's assignment for today, I knew exactly which picture I wanted to choose. "Witchy Nerd" has been my new, self-chosen moniker of late. It fits what I'm interested in right now and how I feel in my new glasses!
