Last week I wrote a post that I actually didn’t think that anyone would care about. I wrote about taking body image and selfies. Honestly, it wasn’t much but it garnered more feedback than I expected. I’ve come out of this these thoughts:
1. When I say I am hot I don’t mean in comparison to other or by judgment of others. I mean at 28 I like myself and my body. That I dress is a way that makes me feel good about myself.
2. I think all that is worth sharing and demonstrating to teenage girls.
3. I think selfies are silly, fun, and harmless.
4. I certainly don’t need anyone else’s permission to celebrate myself. So, you know, shove off.
For the next month I will be taking selfies and posting them on the internet. I’m using Instagram and the hashtag #shutupandduckface. You need an instagram account to do this. I am 90% sure to have instagram you need a smartphone or tablet. Just download the app and get on it. If you just want to do this on the twitters I’m into that, too.
There are no rules. A selfie is what you make it. Really love your shoes today? Take that. Mastered eyeliner? I wanna see. Ran three miles and are a sweaty mess? Rock that shit. I’m impressed.
Here is my first entry to soon be on instgram. I call it, “What Saturday looks like or I haven’t showered since Thursday.”
