Day 03: Sharing Awkward Photos Of Me Growing Up


November 03, 2018

What’s the challenge?

Share awkward photos of me growing up

Why is this challenging for me?

I absolutely hate seeing pictures of myself! The word “selfie” just hasn’t been in my vocabulary because the idea of posting a photo of myself terrifies me! Like to the point of taking 50 photos just hoping I’ll get lucky and snap a good one worthy of sharing… then deciding they all look like crap and just giving up.

So the thought of posting embarrassing and awkward photos of myself when I was young? NOT!!

“There's something liberating about not pretending. Dare to embarrass yourself. Risk!”

— Drew Barrymore ✨

How was the experience?

This challenge ended up being a fun one! I got to spend an hour pouring through old photo albums and picture frames, which brought along many fond memories and smiles in the process. Then when I actually posted these photos, I was very surprised by the fun and positive feedback I got from people through my DM’s.

This one kind of speaks for itself, so without further ado, here’s all of the photos that I shared! And if you really want to go crazy, you can click or tap on each one to make them larger! Enjoy!
