It's January 25, 2021. 5:49 PM. Mountain Time.
The above photo is my interpretation of Kasia Avery's Week 3, Wanderlust 2021 Class, "Reflections: Celebrate Your Reflection".
THANK YOU KASIA AVERY for this prompt. Although it was challenging and took much time to feel somewhat "done", I appreciate the challenge and also, I appreciate the educational yet accepting atmosphere your create in your virtual classroom.
Just snapping a selfie from my cell phone and drawing that impromptu face of mine was...fun and somewhat liberating, after all.
I like to get all dolled up and dress up for such occasions. If I knew it was "Family Photo Day" you better believe I would have on my eyelashes and my lipstick! Along with a flattering shirt and the right bra! LOL. But for this page, I just snapped what I actually looked like in the moment. Baseball shirt. Denim Apron. Glasses. No makeup. No 3/4 turn. Just a straight, head on pose.
Celebrate Your Reflection asked us to embrace a word which holds merit for us this year. The first word I thought of was, "Confront". Am I a confrontational person? No. But I'm not sure avoiding conflict is a good trait either. This year, I want to confront many things head on: health concerns, unhealthy mental patterns, familial mysteries, my dreams and heart's desires.
If I confront my reflection now, I bet I'll be more proud of my reflection next year.
Thank You for stopping by as it has been YEARS since I posted here!!!
Much Love to You & Yours this 2021, or whichever year in which you may stumble upon my little blog.
