A layout for 7 Dots Studio

Hello friends! 

I hope this post finds you well. 

Back today to share with you my latest project for 7 Dots Studio

Please check out the 7 Dots Studio website HERE 
and please check out the stockists for your country HERE 

Hands up if you are a woman and especially one that has had a child or 3 and look at yourself in ANY Photo you take and pick at it? You start to pick at all your bad bits, and can find hardly anything nice in you,  therefore completely avoiding taking pictures at all. This only mean you get more resentful because the years pass and when you look back at all the photos you have taken you wonder if your kids will believe that they ever had a mum because you are never in any pictures :( 

Yep that's me too. 

I try to say "Who cares! Just go for it" but I still hate taking photos. 

For me to use a photo I like I have to take 100. Sounds vain? Nope! Just insecure .. like most of us. I do not want to look perfect! I just want to see a photo where I look ok. 

Anyway, I paired this rare photo I like with the lyrics from Pink's song "Try". Why? Because quite often with me, and most of us , it is not just about being mean to our physical self. More often than not it is all inside. It is all going on inside and it all stems from something. A bad experience, a word someone said, a vulnerable time.. a tragedy that changes you. So moral of the story is be kind to yourself, you will get burnt , it is a nasty world but even though it hurts you need to get up and try .. 

So much easier said than done right?
