For someone who struggles a great deal with their self-esteem, it isn’t easy for me to admit that this image took my breath away when I saw it. I immediately sent it to my partner because I felt so sexy and powerful and it gave me some very Domme feels. It may be my new favorite photo. This self portrait project sure has been a trip. Today makes day 123, and I have learned a great deal about myself and have had to face some uncomfortable truths, then learn to forgive and love them. I cannot wait to see what the rest of the year teaches me. It hasn’t been easy, and frankly some of it has fucking sucked, but the fact that I am able to see images of myself on a regular basis and feel good about them is tremendous growth for me.
