Personal growth

Growth

I’ve titled this post personal growth because as we start a new year I think that’s what some of us are striving for. This picture represents a lot of things for me. After my Mom died any pictures that were taken soon after I’m smiling but it doesn’t reach my eyes. The shirt is brightly coloured which represents bringing colour back into my life. I look at this photo and think I look beautiful. I’m not saying this to be boastful. I remember going to an appointment with my kidney Dr and she told me that and I didn’t believe her. I was at a place where I wasn’t taking care of myself because all I felt was alone…who would care. I had to get to a point where I saw myself as others did. It’s a constant work in progress but the person I see in that picture is strong, confident and happy.
