Yay for you! Yippee!!!! I'm so excited for you.
You make me smile
Way to go!
You did it!
You can do it, keep going!
You're a winner!
You deserve a star
Keep up the GREAT work!! You are SO beautiful inside and OUT. Look at your beautiful family. They are a product of your beauty.
Thank you for sharing from your heart!
What a wonderful, wonderful blog!
You have EVERY right to be proud of yourself, your family AND your proof positive picture!!!
To some it might seem nothing but we all have "things" we can face with ease and others which we find daunting. You have obviously climbed and conquered an absolute mountain ... now keep on climbing the next peak ...
Imagine untying those knots in your stomach ... just a few every day ... and by next week you'll have a neat pile of balls of unknotted string or whatever they're made of ...!!!
I truly hope that next week's scary situation will be completely UNDERwhelming when it comes around and you can get through it just the way you've succeeded this week .. go for it with your head held high and full confidence ...
Go, gal, go ...!!!
What a great story! Thanks so much for sharing!
I share the same fears as you, and have been working to alleviate them.
I laughed out loud at the shooting picture pf you = shooting a gun at you. I so understand.
If this helps, I have two things to say:
First one you have likely heard... FEAR is False Emotions Appearing Real. That is so true for me. Most of my fears are not real.
Second. You cannot underestimate how powerful that picture and your actions those two events are to your children. I modelled my fear of public outings and of photographs from my mother. You just showed your kids you can overcome that what you fear. I just love the smiles!
Power to you!
I just LOVE you for sooooooo many reasons!! I found this one really touching my heart. I used to be quite athletic and in great shape, and I've gained a tremendous amount of weight and know I look far worse from it all on a physical level. Despite all that, I've always been able to get out there and enjoy life and not have it stop me. However, I do not like having pictures taken of me at all
So I do know that it's NOT EASY!!
You are one gorgeous lady! Both inside and out...and all I know are these pictures I've seen. Your SMILE is SO SWEET and TOUCHES my HEART....so I can't imagine there not being a symmetry PIC.
I lost my son at 21...and I can't begin to tell you how PRECIOUS every one of those pictures are that I have of him!
So something that is near and dear to me...is remembering the VALUE of those treasured moments we share with those we LOVE. Pictures have a way of giving us that LOVE again and again.
I'm truly grateful that you are my buddy in TOOLS...and grateful that you are working hard. You are AWESOME.
It's such a beautiful picture....your whole family is gorgeous!
I'm very PROUD of YOU!!!
When I see you... it is a picture of my ANGEL face...cuz you continue to be that in my life!!
Thanks sooooooooo much for sharing!!! Much LOVE and HUGS your way......
Wrote a long comment and lost it going back to look at your 3 exquisite daughters one more time....how I would love to have them in my life for even one day! You are blessed and you are beautiful. I get it. I understand the courage you are talking about and the reluctance to be in the picture but applaud you for resisting the urge to disappear. You must be present and part of this amazing family every minute of every single day. You are enough! We always feel like we could be "more" but you are "enough". Trust that and keep working at getting your sweet self into the traffic of your life. Hiding from the camera or people is only one step from not wanting to be here at all and that is a dangerous place to be. I can remember waking up and crying because I woke up....no more! Now I embrace each day and throw myself enthusiastically into the fray. That's the reason I post pictures of me so often with my blogs....I am getting used to the reality - even the one of me in a bathing suit! We are what we are...we can lose weight, gain, get old, lose our hair, it doesn't really matter. You are a beautiful woman inside and out.
you look beautiful in your picture. Good for you for overcoming your fears.
You know you look good..pretty.. and inside well you know the answer to that..(BEAUTIFUL) i put it in just in case..
I am so happy and proud that you overcame
your fears.. I know how you feel I feel the same way...
you know I think there are angels watching over you... may god be watching over you...Barbie
Sending you a hug
wow. you are so beautiful!
i can relate about the camera phobia. i think i tae horrible pictures, even though i love taking them--did that make sense?
so on tuesday night, while we were practicing kata on deck someone was taking pictures!!! *o* I was trying to keep my composure about me as the camera kept clicking.
i knwo they have to put out new pictures of the new school, but why me???
