Weekly Photo Challenge: Do I Really See Me?

This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post is:  SELFIE.

100_2279

This shot was snapped in the lavatory of the YWAM building in Amsterdam! I know a little strange…right? But I think all pictures with me in it are a little strange any way you slice it. I think most of us feel that way when it gets right down to it. I find myself wondering  if the reason  it’s hard to look at ourselves is because it’s easy to deceive ourselves about who we are until we look into our own eyes.  Soren Keikegard said,

“The greatest hazard of all, losing one’s self, can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all. No other loss can occur so quietly; any other loss – an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc. – is sure to be noticed.” 
― Søren KierkegaardThe Sickness Unto Death

I think I may start taking more selfies just to practice seeing the real me.
