Wordless Wednesday: Project #Flawless12

February 1, 2012

Life

OK, maybe it’s Not-So-Wordless Wednesday. Ahem. I’ll be brief.

My girl, Christie, is launching Project #Flawless12 today. It’s 29 days of flaunting our divine imperfections. It’s about loving ourselves, embracing our imperfections, letting go of negative self-talk and unrealistic expectations … flaunting our flaws because we have none.

Each day of the month of February, there will be a prompt dedicated to creatively and boldly expressing self-love. Responses to the prompts can be blog posts, tweets, Instagram pics, Facebook posts, any other social site or something totally private for yourself. I’m sure I’ll choose many different outlets throughout the month. Today’s prompt is you #NoFilter.

On this first day of #Flawless, let’s be unfiltered…fresh-faced…our real selves.  When we have our pictures taken…or even when we take pictures of ourselves, we “doll up” a bit, right? Then we pile on the photo enhancers to make us look even better. Let’s be bold enough to show who we are when we wake up in the morning,before the day fully begins.  Take a picture of yourself first thing…without make up…without camera tricks. The ultimate flawless self-portrait.

Me first thing this morning. No camera tricks, no comb and clearly no concealer. GASP!

    Just found your site-and watched the atlanta mom’s video. really? There’s difficulty in finding time to work out when your kids are in school and you don’t work outside the home? really? this is so laughable-I can’t believe these women are considered “heros” because they get a run in a few times a week and say how “HARD ” it is. I have worked for 36 years, raised a family (single mom) and still got in my workouts to complete over 100 triathlons- two of the IM distance-and no I didn’t farm my kid out to relatives (don’t live near any). But this is where we are societally. You are AWESOME for making spaghetti sauce on a day after logging four measly miles. Cracks. Me. Up.
