This is Who I Am, Part 2 - Embracing MY shadow

I am taking part in a FREE creative workshop that is run by Christina of Divas and dreams photography blog.

Here is last week's assignment (because I am destined to always be one week behind):

The written assignment;

1. Choose 3 words that tells something important about your personality. One thing you don´t like and two that you love.

What I love the most about myself is that I´m (insert your word)________ and (insert your word) ___________.

What I hate the most about myself is that I´m (insert your word) __________.

2. When you have your words, I will ask you to make a sentence using all 3 words. One sentence with all 3 words. Write the sentence down on a piece of paper. Do it your way, it dosen´t even have to make sense to others just to you. you will need to use this sentence in you photo assignment.

3. Last but not least I will ask you to reflect on your negative word, but in a new and positive way;

The good thing about being (insert your negative word) ___________ is that__________.

Being (insert your negative word) ________ is great because it helps me ______________________.

I know there is something positive to find, it can be a challenge to find it, but it´s there :-) When you find it, acknowledge it and embrace it with respect and love. Use it as a strenght in your creative work!

Your Photo assignment;

Okay, now take your sentence with the 3 words and use it in your photo somehow. There are no rules about how to do this, just make sure the sentence is in the picture. You can write it on a post it, on your body, on a mirror with a lipstick or paint it on a wall - it´s all up to you. Remember; no limits!

Here is my written part:

What I love most about myself is that I'm passionate and patient. What I hate most about myself is that I'm unmotivated.

There is a difference between being patient and being unmotivated. I have to remind myself to be passionately patient so I don't become too unmotivated.

The good thing about being unmotivated is that when things go wrong, or don't turn out the way I expected, I don't get too upset. I keep going, keep trying.

Being unmotivated is great because it helps me to stay open to new possibilities. Rather than being limited by unachievable goals and impossible expectations, I am willing to take what life hands me and make the best of it.

For the photo assignment, I used a mini-fridge, magnetic letters, and a dry-erase marker. (On a side note, I had no idea that mini-fridges were magnetic or that you could draw on them.)


  1. This is so cool!! I love your idea of being passionately patient - that is awesome!!!
