All About Selfies..

I read a really fascinating article about selfies last night ✨
.
It talked about the women who came before, using cameras to stave off the solitude of aging, or whose husbands had expectations of wives staying quiet and basically erasing themselves. Wow.
.
Consider the reasons why we take and publish pictures of ourselves: are we wanting others to recognise our aesthetic boldness and bravery for stepping into the frame and clicking share?
.
Selfie taking is often described in terms of vulgarity: too much / too often / too desirous / too sensual / too much lip / too much body. The word “narcissist” gets bandied about.
.
I’m thinking about selfies differently today – – like a vibrant language. They have adventures… they go out and make friends. ✨ Our selfies are weightless versions of ourselves, with wings🦋. We confirm our bodies in space, and then give them flight – – journeys into the cloud ✈️. They capture a moment in time that is uniquely ours, slicing off a little piece of ourselves. And filters? Perhaps we can think in terms of us being the directors of our feed… and the filters work in our storytelling, as dramatic lighting for our personal theatre. 💕 Works for me 👍
.
At the end of the day, you are beautiful. You are loved. Paint, polish, tweak and enjoy the play! Let your selfies tell your story… the one where the person you see and the person you feel you are gets fused in that instant.
.
Celebrate You 💐✨💕

Thanks for reading all the way to the end, if I’ve sparked some joy, please consider sharing!
