Book pic collage

I was told that I needed to add a picture of myself to my new books and to my blog. I hate having my picture made.  I used to not mind it when I was a teenager, matter of fact, I loved it. I even modeled some. But not anymore. 

I told Becca, my oldest daughter that I needed her to use her amazing photography skills and take my picture for my book.  I was to get all dressed up, but our schedule didn’t work and then…I just fell apart.  I couldn’t imagine getting my picture taken.  I don’t weigh what I want to weight anymore and quite frankly, I just don’t feel pretty anymore.  Shoot over! 

Next day, I felt a little better, not much though and just decided to bite the bullet.  I didn’t get all dressed up like I wanted, but I was ok with it.  I skipped the heels and put on flats.  Swapped the dress for jeans.  I’m not sure what happened with the change in my attitude except I saw how it was affecting my girls.  Even though they’re 20 and 15, my attitude seemed to bother them, so I woke up and changed mine.

Am I happy with the pics?  Actually, yes.  I can pick out every flaw, but I’m happy with them.  I decided my attitude needed to be checked and it actually worked, this time.  Will it work, next time?  I hope so!  More importantly, I want my girls to have a healthy attitude about themselves even if I struggle with my own.

But now I need your help!  I have to choose one for the book, and this blog.  Help me choose! Decisions…decisions…..Blog Signature
