My sister Clementina took hundreds of pictures during her visit. She and her husband are funny and they love to document their travels. We had tons of fun on those pictures sessions.. until I saw the pictures. OMG! I wasn’t happy at all when I saw myself. I knew I had some extra pounds… but seeing the pictures make me feel really sad. And then I realize I was being super hard at me as usual. I’m always hard at myself. I always feel I’m not doing enough for my art career and IT’S NOT TRUE, and I have been working hard on that. Why we are always so hard to ourselves? I can feel sooooo proud for each milestone a friend or family member reach, and still I always feel I can do more. But I have been working on that, and little by little I have been feeling proud of myself.
Now I have to work on not being so hard at me for my weight or my hair or for the way I dress or for wanted to use my crocs 24/7. This is me and I’m HAPPY and gratefull for my great life and my family, friends and husband love me ;)
Yes, I have a few extra pounds… but come on; of course I have to have a few extra pounds. I got marry on January and I have been a housewife the last 10 months. That means I cook and EAT dinner every night. Before Andrew, I was more than happy eating a can of tuna for dinner. Fancy, right?
In general lines, we are really thoughtful in the way we eat. Our dinners are mostly protein and vegetables. I always add beans on our diet, and yes, sometimes during the weekends I eat bread. I know we don’t eat badly but still I’m willing to make some little changes to make myself feel better and shear these extra pounds. But the most important change it’s going to be in the way I see myself in the mirror.
I dedicate these two prints/affirmation to myself and to all the people who like me, are always hard on themselves.
