kellyhoop Isn't it funny how we use methods to remember things, like taking pictures or writing things down, thinking it will help us to not forget? We choose to remember specific days and memories by capturing the feeling with a photo rather than absorbing the emotions in the moment. Maybe sometimes you do both. But most times, once that picture is taken or that date is written on your calendar, your mind let's go of it until you are reminded at whatever point in the future.
I think many of us have this tendency with feelings too... Or atleast I do. I tell myself I'll never forget the way I felt a certain day; how hurt I felt, how mad I was, or how much sadness I had in my heart at a specific moment. Yet in a way, I completely forget. I write it in my journal and allow it to escape my mind so that my writing can remember it for me. Then time passes, my heart heals, and when the thing that caused the pain comes around again I have no recognition of the way I felt because I tucked that feeling away in the folds of my notebook.
As a New Years resolution, I'm not allowing myself to forget and hide from my feelings anymore. I'm using this year to create strength out of my weakness and learn from the fear of my emotions.

kellyhoop I don't typically like close up pictures of myself, I feel self conscious and notice all the flaws that I make up in my mind. I over analyze and stress the little things but my best friend @oliviapplegate reminds me everyday that I am beautiful and loved and it is simple genuine things like that that go a long way. Compliment someone and tell them that they are beautiful today and every day because the smallest acts can make the biggest impact. 2mon
