I am participating in a weekly challenge called the Lightbulb Project. Each week we are given a theme and asked to take a photo dealing with the selected theme. This week was “reflection”. I recently saw a photo by Rosie Hardy and it resonated with me, so I decided to use it as my inspiration.
When I look into my son’s eye’s, I see myself in so many ways reflected back to me. The positive traits, yet I also see some of my traits that I consider negative. Instead of negative, let’s use the idea of works in progress. When I look in his eyes, and see those works in progress, I know that they are….works in progress as he has many more healthy and constructive ways of dealing with them then I ever had. He is able to recognize them and learn to be better despite them, rather then let them define him.
