Back in 2019, I took a business and marketing course. There was a challenge to post selfie’s on Instagram because people connect with people.
I cringed so hard.
I did not like the idea of selfie’s at all. I thought they were self-centered, superficial and fake – everything I didn’t want to be.
But being the good student I am, I started posting selfie’s as part of the assignment.
It was wildly uncomfortable. It felt scary and vulnerable. But it did not feel self-centered or superficial or fake.
I realized that I had a fear of being perceived as such but I have not received that feedback. In fact, I found it to be another great medium of self-expression, like writing.
I no longer cringe at the idea of selfie’s but embrace it as another way to explore who I am because like everything else, it is about making it your own.
A daily practice challenges the person who creates on “inspiration.” We have to mother everyday, and ultimately, it is the daily grind that gives us perspective, clarity and the “high’s” of motherhood. I am exploring if the same happens when I write everyday on the topics that normally light me up – motherhood, self-development, healing and creating.
