Me at 4 1/2 years old

This is my favourite photo of me as a child. It helps to remind me who I am.

Why would I need reminding? Because we are all  socialised beings. We learn to get along in our particular society and with other people, and that requires that we dim down or even give away certain aspects of our personality. Whether they are too loud, too quiet, not enough or too much. You know what I mean.

This photo helps me remember who I am underneath all that. And interesting to me is that the things that I love most in this little girl are often the things I judge in myself.

Do you have a photo of yourself that helps to remind you who you are? Link down below if you are willing to share.
