In my last post I outlined how I’m working on reminding myself of how awesome I am, so that when I’m low and forget all the good stuff, I can remember I’m not so bad after all. Operation well-I’m-beautiful-why-do-I-give-a-fuck is in progress.
I took a picture of a mirror surrounded by post-it notes of positivity, but it didn’t click that you’d be able to see me in the picture so… I covered me with this beautiful masterpiece! Luckily when I knew I was taking a photo of me then I put make-up on.
Considering that I called this blog ‘Does My Bum Look Big In This?’ I thought it was pretty important one of my positives should be my big bum, as well as funny (you all know I’m hilarious) and my lovely red hair which I wanted for years before I plucked up the courage to dye it.
“Girl, you got a damn nice figure!” I was once told by a guy in a club before my friend replied “She’s mine!”. Ah, the good old days of pretending you’re a lesbian to ward off guys. Also, I like my eyes, hence the blue eyes.
Do you like my camera? It’s pink. If you can’t read the post-it notes one of them says awesome and the other says empathetic.
Sexy beast, obviously! And the other note says goofy, because I fully believe laughter is the best medicine. Although this isn’t so easy when depressed.
Need I say more?
I get told quite a lot that I have nice hands, they’re quite slender. I’m also passionate about what I believe in – getting over this Eating Disorder being number 1 on my list of priorities.
I’ve always been determined to accomplish things, and I have a small waist in comparison to my hips. This is going to really annoy some people, but I tend to lose weight from my tummy area easily, so that I look even more out of proportion.
Expression-ate face can be seen in the pictures following, I’ve been told my face is funny. I’m choosing to take this as a compliment.
There are a couple of photos that turned out blurry, some of he positives about me were curvy, kind and writer.
This is my face. I am sceptical about this mirror task, but I also feel it’s boosted my confidence a bit. What, you didn’t get that from my expression-ate face?!
It did help, I got stuck on my positives but once I got going I realised any part of me I’m proud of I should make a post-it for. I may not be a published author or anything, but I still write this blog, and that makes me a writer. It’s a small part of me that I’m working on. I also realised traits like empathy and passion are going to serve me well in the future. I also figured loving my bum as it shrinks (and it will shrink) it a great way of accepting it’s big now, and that’s OK. Sort of. OK I’m still working on that, but post-it notes on the mirror have definitely helped.
