My best me

meDay 17: A favorite photo of yourself and why

I took this photo of myself about ten years ago (holy crap, where does the time go?) to show off a new haircut for my hubby (before he was my hubby) who was about 6600 miles away for 45 days or so, thanks to work. 

I like this photo because a) it was a good hair day, b) I have only one chin, and c) I look as happy on the outside as I usually feel on the inside. I think this is the first photo in my life that actually captured what I wish the world would see whenever it looks at me–someone who is happy, confident, relaxed, friendly, and approachable. However, because I’m generally kind of introspective and frequently lost in thought, I know my facial expression is often more serious than I intend it to be–which I fear translates to me looking like I don’t want to be bothered. Since capturing this unguarded selfie and realizing what I could project, I try to be more conscious of what I do project in any given moment.

    I remembered that face with that haircut, it looked good back then. Hope it still does.

      Face is a bit fuller, hair a bit shorter, but you can still tell it’s me!
