Self portrait

The blog challenge – the one I’ve cheated on hardcore-is about who I am and who I want to be. That added to the constant bombardment of “What’s your New Year’s resolution?” has me constantly thinking about what is wrong with me. What do I need to fix this year?

Well, as mentioned in previous posts, quite a lot. I refuse to commit to another super-specific resolution I probably would have already broken by now, but I have committed myself to simply saying this year I will be better.  Since I’ve got so much free time on my hands I can play around with this quest to be a better, more well-rounded person.

I was sitting in my room, relaxing with Dave {DMB}, when realized I love the color of these new weights I bought. They’re motivationally green. I just look at them and think “You can doooo it!” The rested next to the new Women’s Health mag and Meditation for the Love of it. It just looked bright and inspirational.

{Bam! Lightbulb.}

I took a photography class as an undergrad and had an assignment to make a self-portrait out of items that represent you. I figured since it just looked so pretty I’d add a few more things & take a photo. Something to represent the not new but BETTER Sarah.

 

Cheers to a better Sarah

  1. Sundãri products and pamphlet: a more aware and conscious me that looks towards the benefits of what nature offers.
  2. The Plot Thickens: Dedication to being a good writer.
  3. The Buddha board:  Dedication to living in the moment.
  4. Meditation for the Love of it: Attempt to learn things on how to be Zen, more aware, more mindful and the like.
  5. Weights and Women’s Health: Lose weight and adopt a healthier lifestyle.
  6. 2011 Planner: Make more menus, plan and prioritize.

    Sarah- This is a wonderful post. I love the idea of a visual self-portrait of stuff. What our stuff says about us and our intentions. I’m also a new blogger and have been posting about the journey, the “long distance run” of the committed blogger. Stop by and visit. But mostly keep writing. nobluehair.wordpress.com

    The Plot Thickens is a wonderful book. I’ve read it twice. 🙂 Never actually got around to putting it into practice though. Ha.
