I’m so inspired by all of these beautiful photos on tumblr and the excerpts of fine poetry. It makes me wish that I could put more energy into my creativity and give birth to such things. I let a lot of nonsense hold me back, I really do. There have been countless times when I’ve looked out the window and thought to myself “that would make a gorgeous photo”, but I don’t venture outside with my camera because anxiety grips me at the thought of a neighbor spying me in my pjs or without makeup.
Dear Miss Reverie:
I dare you to step outside the next time that happens, whether you’re in your pajamas or not, your makeup or not.
Take your picture.
It will be gorgeous.
And I bet you… if you’re standing on your front porch in pajamas and no makeup, with a huge smile on your face because you just took your gorgeous picture, anyone who does happen to take note is likely to think to him or herself that you are beautiful.
