I am going to do this. I’ve been hemming and hawing back and forth about it, but I decided I am, and there’s two reasons for it.
First off, I’m finding that I am loving the daily pics of my friends who are doing this project. The candid shots of them in their human-ness, not always dolled up, warms my heart. I love these people and it makes me smile to see daily pics of them.
Secondly, this is the year I work the hardest to undo the emotional, physical, and mental damage done to me during my last years in California. My closest friends know of how sick I got, how tortured and crazed, and although the last six months have done me a world of good, I still have a lot of damage to undo. My anxiety is mostly gone and I sleep fairly well now. But, I’m still distraught and very overweight and out of shape from so many years of sitting and watching my life slip by, frozen by the circumstances I allowed myself to fall into in California. I want to document in images my progress through my wellness journey in 2011. It’s as simple as that.
So I will take Daily Pics. I may forget some days. Some days I wont be pretty, and some days I will. Some days will be at work, others with my horses, which have such a positive impact on my life. Most will probably feature some element of Idaho, which I am quickly growing to love with a deep passion. I’m hoping, however, that by the end of the year I can see a marked improvement in myself as I work to heal, to improve, and to let go.
