Self-photo Challenge/Love yourself


Ok, so I was reading a post from a blog that I follow and it just really struck me and I have to post along with her. To sum it up, her blog is awesome so she has lots of followers and gets TONS of comments on a regular basis. SOME of those comments however, can be very hurtful. Sometimes when she posts pics of herself she gets comments that point out what they think are her flaws. So uncool. I think it's safe to say that we've all been made fun of at some point by someone. My freshman year of high school, a boy made a comment to me about how I had fang teeth(it was a lot meaner than it's sounding now). I was so embarrassed. I mean of course I didn't let him know that, that's just not my style. I think I came back at him with something like , "Yeah, well, you suck at basketball," lame I know. ha. I don't think it would have ever bothered me at any other point in my life, but freshman year? That's such a crucial time for a young lady. Although it doesn't bother me anymore, It has stuck with me. I don't know why, but I'll never forget it. Does that boy remember saying something so cruel? Nope, I bet he doesn't, because no one remembers the sting of a comment like that, except for the person who received it. Remember that. Think about what you say, because our comments and opinions can really stick with a person for the rest of their life...
I contemplated actually sharing this or not. I didn't want to seem "weak" for letting people know that it bothered me(even if it was 9 years ago(9, wow really??)). BUT we all have flaws, we're not perfect. We're not weak for letting it hurt our feelings, we're strong for moving on and making our flaws our best attributes! I love myself, we all should, it's important to love YOU.




The point of the picture is that the blog I follow has challenged her readers to post a self-portrait and info of themselves! So there's my pic and here's my info:

Obsessing over...
What am I not obsessing over?? Am I allowed to put more than one thing? Eh, it's my blog, here goes...hair turbans(I'm wearing one in my pic), traveling to Costa Rica and finishing our bedroom project!

Working on...
A Tego photo and DIY project. Hopefully Tego complies. She can be a tricky little booger.

Thinking about...
All the love I have for my husband. I feel like I learn something new about him and myself every day. He keeps me happy, I'm a lucky gal.

Anticipating...
Our HONEYMOON. Costa Rica, chello!! A private beach, adult cocktails, capuchins, sea turtles, zip-lines, alone time with my babe, massages...shall I go on??

Listening to...
Bell Biv DeVoe Radio on Pandora. Don't judge, it makes me smile. Someone was listening to this station at a get together a couple of weeks ago and I haven't stopped listening to it since! So far I've gotten Michael's PYT, old school TLC, Prince and Heavy D. It doesn't get much better than that! :)

Eating...
Hmm...I had a left over fajita for breakfast and for lunch I had 2 cake batter cookies that my mother-in-law brought with her. #Operationcostarica(my plan to get fit for our honeymoon) has somewhat been put off??

Wishing...
I was leaving for our trip tomorrow and staying for longer...I feel like my wish should be more substantial, but I'm pretty content.

What's your favorite thing about yourself? Do you have a favorite self-portrait?
I'd love to know what you love about yourself!
