This is how the Internet World sees me.
This is how my friends see me.
And this is how I see myself.
Isn’t it always weird to hear your own voice on an answering machine? We have a certain idea of how we sound and how we look. I have had an Internet presence for many years, but started using my “flower” shot at the very top about 5 years ago. It is how everyone online pictures me. I have had people tell me it was cute, pretty and some have said erotic. To me it is just an artsy picture to use for my business. My friends would say I am fun loving with a big smile, full of laughter and open. I am often told “I feel so comfortable with you”. I am glad that my friends feel that way with me. To me the middle photo looks “comfortable”. The last picture is a self portrait taken about a year ago. Of all of the pictures I am in and that I have ever seen of myself, it reflects how I see the real “me”…..an adult with a kid’s heart…..can you see the mischievousness? 😉
And this below is probably how I really look….LOL
How do you see yourself? Go through your photos and do as I have done…..it’s a pretty revealing exercise.
