Since I started this – four days ago – I have been noticing light a lot more. The way it hits objects,dances as the wind blows against the branches, and cuts through the blinds just to be noticed.
I feel like I can relate to that last statement. Not that I care to be noticed in the “hey, look at me!” traditional sense, but the “I am very shy/ awkward and I am trying to break through this wall!” sense. Does that make sense? Haha! I guess what I am trying to get at is that I am a socially awkward person. I am a terrible ice breaker, I don’t know what people want to talk about, and I don’t want to embarrass myself by saying something weird – which is 95% guaranteed with me. I want to be more like light. I want to be brave and break through this solid wall, but I am afraid and I don’t know how.
This project365 is more than just taking an obnoxious amount of photos of myself looking awkward; it’s about breaking free, discovering my true self, building confidence, finding my voice and always finding that beautiful light – metaphorically and literally. I hope that this project will help other’s to find their voice, their confidence and their light!
