I’ve been putting myself under such pressure because I’ve not posted for almost two weeks, and I so desperately want to do justice to my Brené Brown post that I’m probably over-thinking it. I just need to go back to basics and write from the heart. So this is a silly, short, off-the cuff post about embracing play! I am at heart a playful soul, or as we British like to say ‘cheeky.’ The above portrait set was taken one evening messing around with my iPhone. The theme was ‘whimsy’ and I was feeling anything but playful. So I looked at myself in the mirror (far too seriously) picked up an eyeliner and drew a moustache on myself. Within the first two shots I was laughing hysterically and ended up loving this set and the whole experience. It reminds me how quickly we can move from one emotion to another if we a) choose to and b) change our focus.
I hope that you can find your playful nature today and embrace the joyful child within!
