A book of me

A book of me? That sounds so narcissistic! Yes, it certainly does. However, I'll rationalize it this way: I think EVERYONE should make a book about themselves, and shamelessly plaster their face all over it.

Seriously, though, don't you want your life story to be told? And who knows you better than you do? I do tons of pages about my kids, but I was afraid to do anything about myself because I thought it would come off as self-indulgent. I got over it by making a layout that made me look silly.

I had fun making this layout. There's nothing tricky with this one, so I won't go into the technical details. My point with this post is to say that self-deprecation can improve self-confidence greatly.

I'll give you a sample of some of the journaling: Make time for hobbies, take a walk in the cold weather, never iron casual clothing, don't even try to fold fitted sheets, turn off the TV, use babysitters when they offer, start a snowball fight, write bad poetry... you get the idea.

This layout set the ball rolling and I've created several more layouts featuring yours truly. More to come. Enjoy.
