A man who, I care deeply about gave me a tongue lashing about my last post. That in adding the layer of grunge, I was destroying the beauty of the image.
At first I was angry, frustrated that he couldn’t see the leap I had made in facing my insecurities head on. He wanted no part in viewing a pic in which I was still hiding. (In my frustration I kind of told him off)

By the end of today, I realised he was right( like he usually is damnit)
So here it is
All The Pieces Of Me—RAW
Nothing to hide.
FOR YOU, but mostly for ME, because I refuse to let this get the best of me

Please see the first one I posted, along with an explanation of why I posted these pics in the first place HERE

Dreamer, mother, wife, friend and most of all…a captive audience of moments and memories…vivid, beautiful and breath taking…through the lens of my camera.

    This is the real Marny that I know and love! Now stop hiding behind the grunge and be proud of how you look. Next time the “tongue lashing” wont be with a bubblemail, I will be knocking on your front door!

    don’t you hate it when they’re right?! I think you’ve grown from doing this and it’s a lesson for all us ‘girls’.

  • Growing can sometimes be painful, and this was a little. In having to really examine the reasons why I was so fearful, I had and choose to discard them. It’s like trying to throw out the beat down, battered, torn and useless fave pair of shoes, sigh. Funny how we hang on to the things we don’t need!!!!!!!!!!!!
