Self Photos as Motivation
Tuesday, February 22, 2011
For many years, I would not take a full body photo of myself. Why? Well several years ago, one of my co-workers 'blessed' me with a photo of me at an office event that had just taken place. Until I saw that pic, I didn't realize just how fluffy all the fast food and convenience store meals had gotten me. So, I would only do headshots.
I did other things at this point too like wearing big clothes, not shopping for new clothes (and Divas LOVE to shop) and just being unhappy with myself overall.
Well, I finally came to grips with the fact that I am still a wonderful person even though I had gained considerable weight. I slowly began to wear clothes that didn't swallow me and shopped again. I was content with me BUT for a long time I still didn't like taking full body shots.
It's said that with age comes wisdom, so I guess I'm wiser now to the fact that my weight doesn't define me. It's an attribute of me that can be changed.
(Pics in order are early October 2010 ~ late October 2010 ~ November 2010)
So (as you can see) I don't cringe from full body shots anymore. I also have started to use my current full body pics as motivation. Even though I am foxy already, I want to be even more foxy.
Technique: using where I am now as motivation to journey to my destination!
