Because tonight, I needed to laugh... my heart craved laughter.

Here is number 2/30:

Trying to learn how to love and accept myself. This 30 day challenge is quite a challenge, but I am hoping it will help me on my journey to appreciate myself.

A Photo a Day for 30 Days

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

I decided to take part in the 30 day self portrait challenge that the girls at A Beautiful Mess created:

I hate taking pictures. HATE. So maybe this will help break the ice for me. Maybe at the end of this I won't feel so insecure. Also I really appreciate the fact that this is a fun & loving kind of project. I feel like may women refrain from taking self portraits because they feel like it is inappropriate or arrogant. I don't think society should shape our opinions and feelings about looking in the mirror or taking a pic of ourselves when we feel pretty. 20, 30, 40....50 years from now, I'm gonna want to look at the younger Valerie and remember what I looked like and felt like at this time in my life. Day 1:

Can We Talk About Heartbreak for a Second?

Monday, July 15, 2013

I've had my heart broken a lot lately. It sucks, it is not just from one person. Many relationships within my family are not healthy and someone close to me has fit a few jabs in there recently as well.I just feel so sad. Sad that sometimes (almost all the time) it is impossible to only surround myself with positive loving people. What does it feel like to reach that point in life where you can stand on your own two feet and have the freedom to only be around who you want? I'm working really hard in school right now, I'm building the foundation to create the life that I want- I guess it is not happening as fast as I would like though. I suppose that sometimes one just has to accept that some people really do suck, ans heartbreak is inevitable. I'm gonna go think about something happy and I will post about that soon.
