Little Things About Me

"To be oneself, simply oneself,
is so amazing and an utterly unique
experience that it's hard to convince
oneself so singular a thing happens 
to everybody." 
           ~Simone de Beauvoir

     I have embarked on a mission to rediscover what makes me ME. It's so easy to lose sight of yourself and start to let little wondering thoughts creep in about your tastes, desires, dreams - till you find you're asking that one overwhelming question: who am I? Sometimes I look around in the midst of the everyday bustle and start to wonder. It's natural, it's inevitable, and it happens to everyone I'm sure - even the most confident self-secure people must have moments when they feel a little lost or bewildered. Those are the moments when our eyes turn inward and we take the time to really look and, more importantly, to see. When we can say honestly and I hope tenderly "how are you really Jenny?" (that would be me but of course you can insert your own name). I had one of those moments this week (okay several) and went about doing things that would help me answer those questions. Of course I ended up doing the things that in general tend to pick up my spirits and these few random pictures were born! I hope you are taking the time to appreciate who you are and nurture the parts of yourself that need a little extra love. Try to remember that you are special, unique, and beautiful in ways that only you can be!

I obtained special permission to have prints made of my Mum's 'about me' collage. They are so cute!
