#PROJECTSELFIE | AN INTRO.
Why does one need to create a selfie blog series, you're asking? To be honest, I have no idea why I ever decided this would be a good blog series. But one of the things I hope to do every year is push myself and my blog. To grow both in blog post content and personally as the girl behind this blog.
I want to help myself believe that beauty comes from the inside and that being in front of the camera isn't as scary as I think it is.
I want to remind myself that being in front of the camera isn't vain. That there's nothing wrong with taking a selfie (as long as you're fully clothed!) and that we, as women and human beings, need to love ourselves.
And I want to remember that beauty isn't defined by a number on a scale, or a blemish on our chin.
So here goes nothing! To be honest, I have a feeling this will be MUCH harder than taking one photo a day. Taking all of these selfies is going to be something I'll struggle with physically and mentally, too.
I've always hated being in front of the camera. I hate the limelight and I hated it even more as I got older and more overweight. And even though I've lost some of that weight, I still haven't overcome my fear of being in front of the camera.
But if I want to believe and if I want to grow, then I need to start making changes and making room for growth in my heart.
Anyone care to join me?
