Sometimes when I look in my mirror, I don't recognize the person looking back at me. I was getting crazy critical of wrinkles, age spots and sagging eyelids so I started taking self-portraits in order to face myself.
I am actually NOT dreading 50, I FEEL great and have a lot of energy and enjoy getting as much out of each day as possible. With these pictures, I've come to accept this aging face. LOL
I love this picture! There's this theory around here that I CAN'T wear hats, but I am rocking Jeff's bowler, here...
Having props makes the portraits more fun and at first I hid behind them...
But now, I don't mind standing up front.
Or having some fun...

A great reunion with Karen and her husband Brad at our house was a joyous time. At this stage in life, I am striving to embrace the beauty of the moments and avoid self-criticism.
After being without my car for almost a month, I am glad I took the time to capture my elation. Happy, happy, joy, joy!
Fifty is just fine with me, actually 50 is FABULOUS!!!
Is there something you NEED to face?
