Look Who I Found? - A Friday Find!

I've been taking this awesome e-course by Brene' Brown based on her fantastic book, "The Gifts of Imperfection."  And I'm linking up with Kim's Friday Finds.

One assignment was to find a photo that is exuberant with the aura of who you truly are...

This was no easy required a lot of time.

Well, here I am...pre-baggage!  Now this is a photo of the photo I put in my art journal...

And then we were to answer four questions and write them in our journal...

  1. What do I see looking at her?
  2. What do I love or admire about her?
  3. What makes her light shine?
  4. What can I do to take care of her?
Oooh...weird...thinking and writing about yourself in the third person!  But the truth is...we are so self-destructive in our thought patterns and maladaptive behaviors we use because the self-affliction we endure from ourselves...

So these are my responses...but this is an ongoing journey...

A profound exercise...not for the faint of heart...and not a one-stop-shop kind of deal.

I'm half tempted to put this photo up at work with a caption that says, "I'm on your side."


  1. Love how this was put together Denise -- I was a bald toddler too! :)

  2. What a fantastic exercise. I love the photo of you - so cute.

  3. It is a profound idea ... and it looks like you did a terrific job on it, Denise.

  4. You have such pretty handwriting!! Very cute picture! If only we could take the answers to these questions and not have to add our own commentaries every day!

  5. Thank you for having the courage to share this with us. Precious indeed.


  6. This is awesome! Love the shot and your answers to the questions.
    I may have to look up this Brene Brown e-course!
