Writing about myself negatively is much easier. My friend challenged me to try to draw the positive. I can only think of 13 things. My friend added a few to help me out, how sweet she is. Which means this is an image of myself I need to grow and nurture both physically and on paper. I suppose I will have to learn to fill in the blanks as I go. I never realized how hard it was to find the positive things about myself until I tried. I have always had a hard time filling out lists that tell you to list qualities you like about yourself. It’s not an easy activity to do, but it proves a powerful lesson. The negative in our lives easily overpowers any positives if we let it.
So here is my new picture. It needs some additions to it, but I feel so much lighter and more calm. Like I can breathe a little easier, because I expressed myself without feeling shameful of how I feel.
