I am now on my 4th Day of the 30-Day Blog Challenge and today’s blogging prompt is to share about a recent photo of myself. I’ll be sharing to you photos of the first quarter of the year 2020.
This photo was taken by a fellow blogger Mike Baños while covering the Art Tents event at Centrio Ayala Mall last January 17, 2020.
I had the opportunity to be one of the selected participants of the American English Training of Trainers at Kong Hua School in Cagayan de Oro City. I will share my experience on this on a separate blog post.
Last March 10, we had our class picture in school and teachers were also required to have solo shots. While the photographer was taking my photo, I was reminded that I needed to have a 2×2 ID picture for an insurance document that I have to submit the next day. Thus, I asked the photographer to print one for me. Right after, he sent me the photos and I was so happy because he offered it for free.
Sharing and writing about my recent photos was a bit challenging. Probably because I am bit older now and I am afraid about my flaws; including my chubby cheeks. However, I don’t think I can hide my flaws as they are my reality. My flaws are actually what makes me unique to others.
Whenever I look at the mirror and I am not happy with what I see, I always remind myself that I am fearfully and wonderfully made by God. I am beautiful and I am unique.
Finally, when your recent photo reminds you of your flaws, embrace it. You are not perfect but you are beautiful and unique.
