This above all: to thine own self be true - ShakespeareSince yesterday, the quote above has been sounding off in my head, and it seems that the only way I could make it stop, is to acknowledge it through writing. So, I take this photo a day challenge, as an opportunity to do so.
I like buttons, the unendless variety of it's kind. Like people, or the lives led by people, you can find all sorts.
One of the main reason I created this blog is to remind myself to be true to who I am. It's easy to lose yourself in life if you don't keep focus on what is most important.
The day has been long, and I have to admit that I could have made a lot more effort with the picture of the day but instead, I settled for this image.
It's the set of buttons on K, middle daughter's knitted dress, which she likes wearing with jeans. When I see her wearing it (it used to be J, the eldest daughter's dress) it makes me smile, just like what happened when J used to wear it. I think Littlest will still be inheriting it as well; it's made of sturdy material.
When I read the list of photos we have to do, and I arrive on Day 7, I instantly thought of this dress with the three dark pink buttons.
Then, late this afternoon, as I was checking out what the others did, I started doubting my choice. But there was no time to think or my mind was too distracted about something else. Plus, I wanted to yet again prepare a nice dinner for the family, which always takes a lot of time. P is coming home early for dinner, J has CITO at school (will explain some other time...) and I wanted to nurture them.
I also alloted the chunk of my free time today to write friends, whom I have not been in touch with for a while.
So, here I am presenting a picture and the buttons, which represents, who I am:
- someone who strives for simplicity
- loves all the colour that life is composed of
- has a set of steady (almost there!) priorities :)
- sturdy and survivor of a lot of changes and transitions!
