self portrait challenge



I love the self portrait challenge that Chelsey over at http://thepapermama.com/ is doing & I thought I would get in on it! While reading her post & trying to find a picture of myself I came to realize that I don't have many pictures of just me. I am usually the one always taking the pictures of everyone else. I did find this one that was taken a few months ago in the USVI. 
Danielle from Sometimes Sweet does "currently" posts & it went right along with the self portrait challenge. If you would like, check it out at: http://sometimessweet.blogspot.com/2012/01/currently.html

Currently: 

Obsessing over: Learning about blogging! There is so much you can do with a blog & I love that I have found a way to write & share my experience with postpartum anxiety/ocd. I find it therapeutic to write. My new blog is my little corner where I can be myself, write about the past, the present & record milestones in my daughter’s life. 

Working on:
 Taking care of myself! I am trying to work on eating as healthy as possible & exercising more. I would love to get back into yoga, maybe even take a bath once in a while & I love that I have found writing to be a way to release my feelings & thoughts. I have learned that one of the best things you can do for your family is to take care of yourself. If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!

Thinking about:
 Possibly taking some classes, what I want to do for a career, starting a PPD support group in my area & my 30th birthday coming up in a few weeks…yikes! 

Anticipating:
 Taking my daughter to Disney!!  

Listening to:
 Stronger (What doesn’t kill you) by Kelly Clarkson. This is my favorite song right now & although the song has nothing to do with postpartum depression, it reminds me of the struggle I went through & I truly believe what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!

Eating:
  Trying to eat healthier but the pizza last night threw that idea right out the window! I will try the healthy eating again tomorrow! 

Wishing:
   That I wouldn’t worry or think about the worst case scenario as much as I do.
