Texture Tuesday




Today's theme at Texture Tuesday is celebration.   The entry for 12 April in Simple Abundance is about loving and honouring your body, letting go of expectation and the world's ideal of beauty, and celebrating ourselves.  Just as we are.  Learning to live with and love the gifts we have.

It has taken me a really, really long time to do that.   To embrace those imperfections, let go of those expectations and start to create my own niche in the world without conforming to someone else's definition of an ideal.

Today I am celebrating my uniqueness.

How about you?

  13. Beautiful photograph of you. I love the way you are located in it. And, I especially like the few strands of hair coming down to your eye. The texture gives an overall dreamy look.
