Here is my photo for the I am Beautiful Project. I took it yesterday, when I felt more hideous than ever. I forced myself to do it- And I'm glad I did. I've found this little group last week, after I saw Angela, and Dierdre and Annette's photos. They were, well beautiful. After I took these photos yesterday, my wave of self loathing floated away. I put on a cute outfit, fixed my hair, and went to work feeling better about myself than I had. All because I told my self, that I was beautiful- This group is an inspiration for women and men, younger, older- I plan to show Raven the photos from this group, and I plan on taking one of her-

I recently found an old Baz Luhrmann Cd - Yes, he's a filmmaker, but he put out a cd of songs from his movies ( Strictly Ballroom, Romeo and Juliet) and one the songs Is called Wear Sunscreen- Maybe you've heard it- I remember loving it 13 years ago, but now, hearing it again, wow so good. The line I like best is:

 

Enjoy your body,

use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people

think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.

 

I am Beautiful.

 

Here's a link to the song....
