Selfie no. 12: A Year of Selfies

September 14, 2015

Can you believe it has been a year? Twelve months of selfies, that means I am doing this Day Zero Project for almost a year now. I can’t believe it, it all seems like yesterday when I started my list of 101 goals. One of my goals is this one:

No. 36: Take a selfie every month.

Not because I love selfies so much, or because I love myself so much. In fact it’s the opposite. I created this goal to help me appreciate myself more. To help me accept who I am and help me realize I’m not half bad. It kinda payed of already! While I was a bit uncomfortable taking my first few selfies, I now enjoy choosing special moments to capture. And those moments can be as simple as a perfect hair day. Or a kiss from my dog. But I also captured some unforgettable moments, such as the day of my first self-written play, the day I got to play an angel on stage or the day I visited a cave for the very first time. I captured myself getting bangs, dressing up for costume parties and getting glasses. A lot has happened the past twelve month and I am grateful for the collection of pictures that help me remember all these moments.

This twelfth selfie was taken on a special day as well. It was Rikku’s second birthday and we both got to star in a dog commercial on that day.

Even though these selfies are pictures of my face and not the actual events, they still take me back to those days. Just by looking at the pictures, I am reminded of the days these pictures were taken and how I enjoyed those days. Therefore I am looking forward to my next 21 selfies. I can’t wait to see what special moments still lie in store for me, which beautiful memories I am about to create.
