This is me. The every day me.
Not the me where I’ve slapped on make up and done my hair for a photo.
This is the every day me. My hair is a mess, I’m still wearing my dog walking clothes. In fact I’m out on a dog walk. The sun on my face, the wind in my hair. A proper self portrait.
This is the me my kids see every day and love even though I’m rough around the edges. They don’t care that mummy hasn’t put concealer under her eyes, or styled her hair properly or checked that x matches y.
They love me for me and that’s how I want to remember myself at this point, because that’s the best me of all.
