my friend Janelle set a challenge I accepted below is the explanation copied from her blog
Yes, the challenge here is to take a picture of yourself - but not just to take a picture - to capture the ESSENCE that is "You."
Well, Janelle, isn't that a little narcissistic? Naw..... it really isn't.
The reason for this challenge is to practice self-compassion and self-acceptance.
If there is one thing I am learning on Life's Journey, it is that you can't give away
what you don't have. If we don't have self-compassion and can't accept ourselves,
we are just faking compassion and acceptance towards others, or not giving it all.
Get creative, express yourself and share with other bloggers! If you want to keep your identity hidden, surely there is a way to do that and still participate. Use your imagination.
Self-Portrait Reveal Date: August 29th!!
