Beautiful! I love this! The childhood photo that came to mind was me in a really cute polka dot dress that hoody on it, with my hair done perfectly. I was smiling...perhaps even performing...being who I needed to be. The “happy smiley one”. I knew in my body what I needed to be for others...it still runs me to this day, except the light isn’t as bright anymore with responsibility and to-dos that weigh heavily (that I impose on myself). I’m turning 47 next month and the gift I want to give myself for my next birthday is to release the shackles of expectation and bring some carefreeness back into my life. 💕
