I’ve been at war with photos of myself for years. I’ve tried practicing being nice with the photos I take of myself with pretty good success, but in the age of Facebook, I’m often not the one in control of the photos being taken of me, posted, and shared. It’s made loving photos of myself more challenging than usual. I’ve worked on reminding myself that this is what strong looks like. This is what healthy looks like. This is what I look like. And I’ve forced myself to look at these photos until I stop seeing things I don’t like and start appreciating myself for who I am. But I am really not good at it. How can I be so comfortable with what I see in the mirror and so uncomfortable with what I see in a photo? In this week’s episode, it’s time to set some new boundaries with that internal voice when it comes to photos.
Also, this week, I’m in New York City! Why? Tomorrow, Saturday June 24th, is Global Sports Bra Squad Day, sponsored by Oiselle. I’m here as a guest of Kelly Roberts of Run, Selfie, Repeat to speak on a panel after the run event here in the afternoon.
