A lot of people ask me how I handle photos of myself that are taken during this project. The quick answer: I don't look at them. This is one of the main rules of the project. If a friend takes a picture of me, I politely request that they hang onto it until my year is up, or - at the very least - just don't tag me on facebook! No biggie. :)
That said, I DO like looking at photos of myself from before the project started. Sometimes I peruse my iPhoto files just for kicks, but whenever I'm feeling blue, I look at this photo. It was taken when I was almost 3 years old:
|Me, at my best.|
Do any of you remember a version of yourself you still admire? How can we hang onto these precious selves while still growing into our best selves?
