Last year I jumped on the blogging bandwagon, and chose a word for 2011.
The word I chose was growth. At the time, it was the word that kept coming back to me.
Personal, professional, photographical (yup… still not sure it is a word).
To my surprise, my year was all about growth. I grew leaps and bounds during the year, and most of it was very personal.
I softened up and started to see some of the beauty I have inside. I learned to be less harsh in how I judge myself, and how to really believe in myself. I realized that I have just as much to offer as anyone else.
It wasn’t all bad before, but I see myself in a less critical light now. 2011 was a huge year for me.
This year, I have once again picked a word. It is a word that keeps coming back to me.
Instead of trying to explain it, and instead of trying to dissect it, I am going to let the year unfold. I am going to wait and see how more manifests itself.
This is my first self-portrait for my 52 Weeks Project.
I like it a lot, but it is very safe for me. A self-portrait I would expect from myself. Intimate and close-up.
