Selfies have become a reality of life with social media being full of faces and the hashtag #selfie. I used to think they were for people with a lot of time on their hands and a smartphone handy, but now I have changed my mind. I have recently been taking daily selfies in my journey journal app, not for anything but a little self-love and to boost my lacking self-esteem. And believe it or not they have been helping me to see myself in a kinder light. I do it each morning before going to work without fail and since I have been doing it my feeling of self-worth have gone up dramatically.
I have never been one to like seeing photos of myself even when younger, I cringed whenever the camera came out to invade my privacy and family would take photos. Now with a little of time I am growing to love my face, I tell my inner critic to shut up and leave me alone.
So thankyou selfies for letting me learn to love myself again.
