Day 7: Reveal your self(ie)

Please post your favorite picture of yourself from this year, selfie or otherwise.

I’m not a “picture” person. Thanks to iPhones and the like, there are more photos of me now than at any other time in my life. A couple of years ago, I started taking a picture of myself each year on my birthday. I don’t necessarily share them with anyone, but it’s interesting to see how I’ve changed.

This year’s photo just makes me sad. It was taken just a couple of days after Dave was first diagnosed. The fear and sadness in my face is gut-wrenching to me. Seeing the photo takes me right back to those awful days. I was going to use it for this post, but I can’t bear to see it.

The photo above is one from about a week ago. I’ve gotten past the hang-ups I have about my nose (thanks Dad…the ONE thing I get from you?) and I’m learning to “live” in my own skin. What choice do I have, right? People tell me all of the time that our kids look a lot like me. I am starting to see it as they get older, and it’s kind of cool. Genetics are a pretty incredible thing.
